Hi, I’m Josh. I’m here to help you break down the walls that confine you in the life you’re currently living so you can expand to experience the joy of living a life that is calling you. This means different things to different people. In our work together, I want to get to know you: what’s bothering you, what’s important to you, how life is calling you to grow and how I can best support you to answer that call. For me, it is a privilege to accompany people like you on the journey into healing, change and empowerment.
Just so you know a bit more about me and what I can I offer you on your journey, here’s my official bio and some other interesting information for you.
I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Connecticut, and I am also an American Association for Marriage & Family Therapy (AAMFT) approved supervisor. I received my graduate training from Southern Connecticut State University. I have two-year training and certificate in Gestalt Psychotherapy, extensive training in mediation, trauma, and substance abuse recovery, child and family forensics. For nearly five years I worked at the Yale Child Study Center where I worked with troubled families and adolescents. I have worked with thousands of individuals, couples and families in addressing life transitions, family and couples issues, mental health and addiction, and integrating spirituality into their life locally and internationally, helping families who are preparing for or are going through a divorce and transition into a new life structure. Since 2010, I have been offering psychotherapy in private practice.
Additionally, or much of the last 20 years, I have studied and trained with amazing teachers in yoga and meditation, spirituality, family systems, and psychotherapy.
Here’s what I can assure you…
Within even the most traumatic experiences, the most conflicted relationships, the most challenging work situations, and the most difficult life transitions, there are always seeds of real happiness just under the surface. Life is continually putting us through challenges that have the opportunity to open us up to a fuller expression of life and to embody our True Self.
When we work together, I give you the best of what I’ve learned, the best of what I know, and the best of what I have personally experienced in my own life, to assist you through the challenges, and over the obstacles that have taken a firm hold on your life.
Once you have cleared the things that are keeping you stuck, life gets much easier, and you begin to understand what people mean when they refer to being in the flow. In working with many clients over the years, I can tell you that these challenges I speak of can come from any and all aspects of life – relationships, work situations, your history, your beliefs, family dynamics… you get it – the list is endless and it’s usually a combination of a few different factors. But with your willingness to look at yourself, your life and how you are living in an honest and open, true and positive change is possible.
I know how painful it is to be stuck and not know how to find your way through or out. I’ve been there. I did eventually find my way and I continue to make it my life’s mission to be a guiding light to help others find theirs.
I’d love to connect and see how I can support you in opening and awakening to the next chapter of your life that’s just waiting for you to write it.
