“There was a new voice which you slowly recognized as your own, that kept you company as you strode deeper and deeper into the world.”
– Mary Oliver
LPC, LMHC, MS, MA
Hello, I’m Joseph.
I am devoted to the deeper calling of soul-centric healing and service to all life.
Joseph holds an MS Counseling with a specialization in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Prescott College and a MA in Educational Psychology from the University of Colorado, Denver. Joseph is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Arizona as well as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Washington and specializes in complex developmental trauma.
As a clinician, Joseph integrates alternative modalities into his work. His approach is trauma-informed, influenced by Ecotherapy, spirituality, mindfulness, somatic work, and grounded in The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM). Joseph trained through the NARM Institute in this cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma. He is currently a Training Assistant at the NARM Institute. He trained in MDMA Psychedelic Assisted Therapy Training Program at the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies. Joseph has also trained with Bill Plotkin at Animas Valley Institute in the Soulcraft Apprenticeship Initiation Program. He has guided self-designed programs and apprenticed to nature-based Soul work experiences in wild settings throughout North America.
Joseph offers individual counseling online and in-person, Ecotherapy sessions on the land, as well as preparation and integration therapy for individuals who are exploring experiences of non-ordinary states of consciousness.
Joseph believes deeply in the power of a reciprocal relationship with nature relationship and living a soul-directed life of meaning, purpose, and creative expression. As a cultural change agent, he has developed, managed, and implemented Ecotherapy programs and processes for groups and individuals in community mental health and addiction recovery for over five years. He has worked as an Ecotherapy Consultant at Defining Wellness Center, a luxury addiction recovery center in Mississippi. He passionately facilitates nature-based transformational sessions, workshops, and intensives for groups and individuals.
My approach is designed to meet your individual needs. I aim to meet you exactly where you are, to get clear on what you really want for yourself, and support you with navigating the obstacles to get in the way of your heart’s desire.
My passions lie in the enchantments of the natural world, resolving complex developmental trauma, and guide you in cultivating a deep self-knowing that is rooted in the wisdom of your ability to heal and transform. I have a deep love for the animate natural world, eco-deep psychology, mindfulness, ceremony, and rites of passage, which I will use to support you in the process of healing and deep self-discovery. I blend these passions with my clinical training in NARM and a variety of other traditional therapies.
I believe in the healing power of nature and our unique capacity to live a soul-directed life of mystery, longing, love, and creative expression. Together, we will create the space and enter into a journey of depth healing and transformation, not alone, but connected to the innate intelligence of your inner guide.
When it is congruent with your process, we can integrate Ecotherapy sessions on the land to enrich your therapeutic process with the healing support of the Earth’s intelligence. This is an invitation to wander into the inner and outer wilderness and to participate in the deeper conversational dance of life where the longing of the World is in conversation with your Soul. Ecotherapy brings depth, new perspectives, and acceleration to the initiatory process of healing.
My style is compassionate, non-judging, and direct. I will provide you with a safe space where you can fully connect to your heart and embody your innate wholeness, vitality, and unimaginable potential.
It would be my honor and privilege to guide you along your own unique path of healing and depth transformation.
