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.

Joshua has written two devotional guides and a poetry chapbook which are available on Etsy. Click here to learn more. Check out Joshua’s comments on the Lectionary and current events here.
