Dr. Josh has experience working with clients of all ages -- adults, teens, and children.

He has experience working with clients living with anxiety or depression, and he is passionate about supporting LGBTQ+ clients. He is also available to support high school and college students on a wide-range of school and student-related issues, including career development, life planning, and college exploration.
In counseling, Dr. Josh uses many techniques but primarily operates from a strengths-based, solution-focused approach. He has a focus on the here-and-now and operates from the perspective that we are influenced but not defined by the past. With kids and teens, he enjoys incorporating play therapy and expressive arts techniques. Because each person is different, Dr. Josh always strives to create a safe, client-centered environment and tailors his approach based on the unique needs and preferences of client.
Dr. Josh is currently accepting new clients, and he offers Saturday appointments. He accepts cash, check, or credit card. A discounted rate is available for employees of Orange County Public Schools or college students with a valid ID.
