Joe’s experience and approach stems from working with Wilderness Therapy, Young Adult Transitional Programming, Restorative Practices, and Community Mental Health. Over the years, he’s worked with teens and young adults living with and/or moving through a variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, learning differences, addiction, relationship challenges, and life transitions.
Joe received his Master’s in Social Work from the University of Vermont. He takes an integrative approach inspired by strength-based, narrative therapy, solution-focused, cognitive behavioral, and collaborative-relational practices. He believes in co-creating a healthy therapeutic relationship in order to hold a safe, non-judgmental space where a person can navigate strengths, needs, direction, goals, and relationships. He values working with and alongside a person in order to create change, empowerment, growth, and self-exploration.
Outside of work, he finds balance, relaxation, and joy through spending time with his partner and their dog Aslan, playing sports, performing music, hiking, kayaking, and snowboarding.
