Hi! My name is Joshua Washington and I am a counseling intern here at Lotus. I am currently
pursuing my Masters in counseling at the University of North Texas, and have received my BA in Psychology from Texas State University. I have worked with adults across the life span with various presenting concerns.
In addition to advanced counseling skills, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in sessions. CBT focuses on the intersection between thoughts and feelings and how they impact each other. At its core, it seeks to solve problems by focusing on the present and modifying dysfunctional thinking and behavior. A goal within this theory is also to empower the client through educating them on principles of the theory. By the end of my time with each client, it is my hope that they feel capable of “being their own therapist”.
Outside of the counseling room I enjoy being in nature, exercising and live entertainment.
