Hello, my name is Josh. I'm a midwestern transplant, and I moved to Oregon in order to complete graduate school. I'm a quiet, humble and curious person who is always open to learning more and continuing to grow. When I'm not working I love to get outdoors and explore, read, cook, etc.

My Approach

I believe that through our journey of navigating life we can become distanced from our inherent sense of wholeness when we encounter challenges that lead us to question ourselves, others, and life as a whole. I hope to help clients access the capacity for healing and growth by collaboratively, compassionately, and mindfully studying and loosening protections that may have developed in order to survive and get by in life. This often involves a strong focus on present moment experience during sessions so that we may work with the actual felt sense of what is limiting and eventually begin experimenting with new ways of being. I view therapy as a relationship in which myself and the client are given the opportunity to learn, grow and be impacted in a lasting and transformative way.

My Background

I received my master’s degree from Lewis and Clark College where I explored the importance of incorporating a therapeutic systemic lens, which looks at how oppression at various levels in clients’ lives and contexts may be impacting their mental health. I completed my internship at M.E.T.A. Counseling Clinic during which I received training in a particular kind of therapy called Hakomi , which is a depth-oriented, wholistic, somatic, mindfulness-based psychotherapy. Hakomi allows client and therapist to study and transform all aspects of a client's experience such as thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, impulses, and so on. I also completed the M.E.T.A. Primary Attachment Psychotherapy training while I was completing my internship, which can be used in therapy to specifically access the present moment experience of the relationship between the therapist and the client in order explore and work with struggles related to trust, safety, and security in relationship.
