Meet Our Staff
JOSH FREEMAN, MA, LPC
Josh believes for therapy to work most efficiently that the therapy room must be a safe place where clients experience the freedom and opportunity to be themselves. We often feel we must wear a mask, ignore or deny our feelings, or pretend to feel differently than we actually do, and this can be exhausting. Josh works with clients at their pace toward the goals that they want to achieve while providing an environment that promotes health and healing.
Josh thinks the whole person is affected by adverse conditions, and as a result the whole person should be addressed when evaluating goals toward health. This includes considering implications from personal, psychological, spiritual, social, and biological influences. Humans are complex beings and understanding what we are experiencing is complex work. However, as clients work through the impact of these various influences they gain an understanding of their lives and become empowered toward achieving change in their lives.
Josh moved to Texas with his wife in 2008, for graduate school, and has lived in the Dallas/Richardson area ever since. In addition to his work at FBCR, Josh is the Counseling Director at Dallas LIFE homeless shelter and an adjunct professor at Dallas Baptist University. This allows continued growth in the content areas he is passionate about which include issues of sex and sexuality, cross-cultural and multicultural experiences, and training the next generation of counselors as they develop in the counseling profession.
