Passionate About Helping Others

Joseph entered the counseling profession after spending 20 years in corporate operations management and sales. He was responsible for managing large teams as well as training, professional development and crafting their career paths. His passion for helping others led to his interest in becoming a psychotherapist.

Joseph has experience working with couples and individuals. His life experience has given him a window into how challenging it can be to manifest a career or life change. Often these moments include painful experiences and loss of identity as individuals let go and embrace the new journey awaiting them. He has worked with clients struggling with loss and grief, anxiety and depression, loneliness and isolation, intimacy issues and spirituality. He assists clients in creating opportunity to quiet worldly distractions and demands in order to allow their true, authentic selves to grow. Joseph attends to his clients with openness and curiosity and attunes to their experience.

Joseph works with clients in a collaborative and encouraging demeanor where compassionate care is extended to each client.
