and turn to the lord your god

for he is gracious and merciful

Joshua’s spiritual counseling practice is ideal for clients who are finding their place in the Church, navigating the complexities of sexual/gender identity and faith, or discerning a vocation. A typical session opens with prayer, followed by deep listening to the client’s experiences and concerns. Drawing from a wide variety of contemplative practices, Joshua assists clients with charting a path forward on their spiritual journeys.
