Joe believes in the healing power of human connection. As such, he strives to build a trusting, transparent, and empathetic partnership where clients feel empowered to explore, repair, and restore.
As a Clinical Mental Health Intern, Joe enjoys working with children, teens, and families. He has a particular interest in working with survivors of trauma, as well as those burdened with anxiety, depression, and panic. Joe’s experience working with refugees in Charlotte and orphaned adolescents in Sierra Leone inspired a passion for Child-Centered Play Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. He works with clients of all ages to explore unhealthy thought patterns, identify coping mechanisms, and instill a renewed sense of self.
Joe has a Juris Doctorate from the University of Dayton and a Bachelor of Business Administration from Ohio University. He is currently in his final year of graduate school at St. Bonaventure University, pursing a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Joe and his wife have six active kids. When he’s not working, you can find him coaching his kids’ sports teams or searching for a quiet nook to read a good book. In addition to serving his local community, Joe continues his work abroad.
