Joshua works in Duluth MN, with couples, families, and individuals of all kinds (heterosexual, LGBTQ+, Queer, Poly, trans, non-binary, etc.) who are experiencing distress in their lives and in their relationships. He will work with you through painful difficulties in the present, healing past traumas and attachment breaks, bringing new ideas, skills, and support to parenting, and moving through life's transitions, choices, and painful circumstances.
Joshua specializes in working with couples and families from attachment-based, trauma-informed, and feminist perspectives and is trained in Emotion Focused Couples Therapy. He uses sensitivity and directness to bring to light breaks in attachment and then works with you to repair those breaks and restore emotional connection. He also teaches Non-Violent Communication to keep those connections strong.
Joshua enjoys spending time with his family, trail running, swimming in the icy waters of Lake Superior every month, and making and listening to music.
Joshua completed a Master of Science in Education degree with a focus on Marriage and Family Therapy at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. He also holds a BA degree in music from Winona State University. He practices under the supervision of Carolyn Dehnbostel MA, LMFT.
Life is often startling, painful, difficult, and confusing. Many people have felt the same mix of thoughts and emotions that you are experiencing right now, even as you read this. I hope that if I have the privilege to meet with you that our work together could be a source of support, healing, and understanding in this difficult moment.
