Joshua Jones, MSW

Joshua Jones has a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree and a Marriage & Family Therapy (MFT) Certificate from the University of Georgia. He has also completed training as an RYT-certified yoga teacher. Prior to receiving his MSW, he worked in the yoga, entertainment, and aviation industries. Having worked in these industries, he understands the complexities that arise from them on a personal level, and loves working with creatives (actors, musicians, artists, etc.) and aviation professionals (flight attendants, pilots, etc.), in addition to his other clients. His approach to therapy is heavily influenced by his various backgrounds, especially yoga, tending to approach issues from a holistic, mind-body-spirit integration.

His theoretical orientation requires that he bring his genuine, authentic self to the therapy room with you. This often means utilizing humor, creativity, and warmth. Josh believes that the key to success in therapy is in the relationship with his clients. Similar to his past, he is what some might call an “eclectic” therapist. Rather than prescribing to a one-size-fits-all approach, he pulls from multiple modalities and orientations, and then tailors those for each individual client. His orientation is rooted in Humanistic Theory, Queer Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, and Systems Theory, and he leans heavily into utilizing Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.

He enjoys working with people from all walks of life, but specializes in working with those who are members of the LGBTQ+ community. He specializes in individual therapy and couples therapy, and has experience working with issues related to grief/loss, LGBTQ+ identity, relationship conflicts, relationship communication, anxiety, depression, trauma, self-identity, self-esteem, life transitions, and substance use. His goal is to compassionately assist individuals and couples on their journeys toward authenticity, self-awareness, and empowerment through a relational, mindfulness-based approach that embraces diverse identities/experiences and fosters resilience and holistic well-being. He is currently being supervised by Erika Pluhar, PhD, EdS, LMFT, LPC, CST-S at WholeHeart and Seri Gohde, LCSW.

            In his spare time, Josh loves to spend time in nature, see live theatre and music, go to CrossFit and yoga, play Pokémon, travel with his partner, and cuddle with his kitties. If you feel that he might be a good fit for you or have any questions about the process, feel free to reach out for a complimentary phone consultation.

Whole Heart Psychotherapy is an incredible practice of knowledgeable, compassionate, and ethical clinicians. As a therapist myself, it is important to establish relationships with other groups for networking, consultation, and collaborative purposes. I truly appreciate that I can trust the clinicians of Whole Heart to provide effective treatment to clients that I refer to their services. I also am grateful for the professional consultation and collaboration that is provided when working with shared cases or when seeking feedback. Whole Heart and its staff are always on my list of providers for outside referrals.

As a therapist, I feel very fortunate to have WholeHeart Psychotherapy as a resource. I have never once hesitated to refer to the practice, and have heard nothing but positive feedback from those I have referred. I have personally participated in professional consultation and DBT groups at Wholeheart over the the years, and can't speak highly enough of the experience.
