Josie spent the first nine years of her corporate career teaching negotiation strategies where she supported people in becoming advocates for themselves, for that promotion, for that project, or for the hiring of more personnel. Leaving corporate life, she graduated with a Master of Science in Clinical Counseling Psychology to further hone her instincts in helping others participate fully in their lives. Josie provides psychotherapy to individuals and couples with specialized trainings in Adlerian Therapy and other evidence-based interventions. As a therapist, she has gained a deep respect and fondness for serving couples working through communication, past infidelity, and other relational concerns. Additionally, she provides premarital counseling and offers a faith-based foundation to counseling at request.
