Joshua Talbert, LPC
Joshua Talbert was born and raised in New York City. Joshua migrated west, with stops in Ohio and Alaska, and has lived in Oregon for over 8 years. In addition to Psychology, Joshua brings an extensive background in Dance and Creative Movement. Because of this, Joshua values sensory experience as an important way of learning more about ourselves and creating change. Joshua’s counseling work often combines awareness of the senses with simple body movement to promote insight, build skills, and practice new behavior. Joshua has completed a graduate certificate in Ecopsychology, and believes that considering relationship to the environment – country or city – is important part of improving health. Joshua views this relationship as a very personal thing, and hopes to provide tools that encourages connection to place as a source of strength and resilience.
Joshua has lived in Japan and Indonesia, as well as traveled around South East Asia and parts of Western Europe. These cultures have opened Joshua’s eyes to the many different ways that people can live. Joshua hopes to provide services that are sensitive to cultural differences, and respects different views about the world.
