Josh is a compassionate listener and a highly intelligent individual. -Extremely perceptive. My husband and I have known him for ten years. He has helped us both individually and as a couple on numerous occasion. No therapist can solve your problems, but he can give you a roadmap when you’re lost. He’s also gifted at trimming the nonsense of the blame game, so that you simply reconnect with eachother emotionally. If you’re serious, he’s a God send. I trust him implicitly.

One of the worst. He suggested me to get divorce with my ex if he does not keep the promise. He tried to make a decision for me. Terrible therapist.

I would highly recommend Joshua. He has been a huge help in a chaotic time of my life. He helped my fiancé and I better understand each other where we went from not being able to even be around each other to being engaged. He is straight forward and blunt and I love it. He doesn't sugar coat things and makes you face reality so that you can fix the issues and find out your truths to move forward in your life. He helped us a lot!

My husband and I needed to reconnect and learn how to thoughtfully communicate our needs to each other again. No one teaches you how to be married but finding the right support can certainly put you back on track by being stronger and wiser. Josh most certainly helped us have the hard conversations but feel comfortable being open and honest with each other. Our marriage is now on a new level and we could not have achieved this without Josh's care and guidance.

We went to Josh for couples counseling and worked with him on communications issues. My husband and I immediately felt relaxed and at ease. It took several sessions for us to get at the root of our issues. We both had intimacy fears, which kept us from being closer. During counseling, we were able to express our feelings and clear a lot of old stuff out of the way. It was well worth the investment of time and money. I think both of us learned some new things about each other. Highly recommended

Josh saved our marriage and our family. Many couples have issues and don't know the first thing about how to move through them. Especially when children are in the mix. We had met with other therapists in the past and the difference between them and Josh in astounding. Josh is the real deal. Josh was always incredibly fair, compassionate, and truly committed to doing the work with us. It was like having our own cheerleader helping us navigate through the relationship. I can say, without a doubt

Josh Nelson taught us how to be better with each other! He is a wonderful relationship counselor. We really don't know how to thank him! He helped us a lot and his marriage counseling skills were the reason we avoided divorce! After all of our conversations with him, we understood how much would be lost if we canceled our marriage. Thank you for everything!

We went in for pre-marriage counseling and it really helped us address issues before they became problems. If you are thinking of getting married it's really important to iron out any bumps in advance. Josh helped us tremendously! We both travel a lot for work and needed a flexible arrangement. He was very accommodating and understanding. Great experience.

I was instantly struck by Josh's enthusiasm for his therapeutic work with couples who are grappling with issues of relating. This man is the kind of therapist and life coach who you just know is good at what he does. He exudes warmth and an easy 'connect-ability' at first meeting. I see him as just a fully genuine kind of person. I have no doubt this is what makes him so successful.

I had put off going to marriage counseling for a very long time. Finally, after what seemed like an insurmountable crisis, my spouse convinced we either had to go to therapy or get a divorce. I am so glad that we took this step! Joshis a gifted therapist who helped us to see our own part in what was driving our relationship conflicts. His therapy model works. It puts us in the driver's seat. Without hesitation, my wife and I would recommend him to our friends and family (and already have!).

He;s a first rate therapist. I don't know how I would have kept my marraige together without his help. I have difficulty communicating. He showed me how to be direct with my wife without it necessarily creating a big fight.
