Joshua is seeking older adolescent and adult clients who want to use the counseling relationship as a catalyst for meeting their mental health and wellness goals such as addressing depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, and other areas of living where we tend to get stuck.  Through a compassionate, humble, and practical approach in counseling, it is Joshua’s aim to honor every client’s investment of themselves, their time, and their resources with outcomes that lead to hope, healing, and a renewed desire for living chosen values and goals.
