Hi, I'm Joshua!
I am a licensed master level social worker (LMSW) working as a psychotherapist in Austin, Texas under the clinical supervision of Grace Dowd, LCSW-S. I graduated from Texas A&M University-Commerce with a Masters in Social Work in 2021.
I have experience working in various settings from non-profit with youth experiencing homelessness, to inpatient and outpatient programs with individuals with complex trauma and dissociative disorders.
I have a passion for continuing education that has led me to complete advanced training post-graduation in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Trauma Model Therapy.
How I Help
My hope for you is that you find a nonjudgmental, open, and empathic space to explore and embrace yourself in a new way. As a social worker, my approach is eclectic and I utilize a number of modalities in order to meet the unique needs of my clients, with Mindfulness, Ego States, and EMDR being a few of my main treatment approaches.

More About Me
I'm an aspiring Yogi and am currently working on my YTT-200. On days of recreation you may find me reading a book at the library, or playing with my toddler and wife at the park. I usually always have an iced latte in hand and love exploring Austin for the best Taqueria or Ramen.
