About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oklahoma, and I have been working in the field since 2015. I obtained a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Central Oklahoma in May 2015. I have worked with teenagers struggling with issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideations, and poor social skills. My approach blends techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy and solution-focused therapy, and I am always researching new evidence-based techniques. I use a collaborative problem-solving approach to help my clients organize their concerns and brainstorm solutions. I can help you explore ways to make new friends, improve grades, and plan for your future. I will also help you develop creative ways to cope with stress and frustration.

I understand how difficult it is to seek help, and I'm proud of you for taking this big step. Well done!

I look forward to working with you!

We love Joshua, he’s focused, kind and an amazing listener. He helps guide in a gentle manner and has been such a great experience for us.

Josh is open, compassionate, and insightful. He doesn't just listen, he hears you and helps you get to the meat of what you are saying. I appreciate his help and will be sticking with him for all my therapeutic needs. Thank you Josh!

Josh is great! Highly recommend him to anyone that needs a great counselor!

Written by T.H. on Aug 04, 2021 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks

I felt like Josh listened intently and then came up with a great plan to get us to where we want to be. I wanted more for my son than to just talk and he is doing just that with offering strategies and ways to change his perspective when he can’t change his circumstances.

Joshua is really good at asking what YOU want to talk about each session & not just assuming he knows. I started talking about anxiety, but then in a different session threw him a complete curveball of talking about motivation & weight loss - he was able to quickly adjust and was great! He really knows his stuff!

Only one session in and we have learned how to ease the pain of a broken relationship. Our counselor showed us how to start having good times even in the bad times

I really appreciate the help that I’ve been getting from Joshua, he’s been a great counselor and he listens. He gives great advice and sends links to information I’ve needed. I think that anyone who gets him as a counselor would think so as well. Thank you so much Joshua for helping me so far! ^^

Written by G.R. on Apr 04, 2021 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, and anger management

Joshua is a very helpful and insightful counselor. He listens to questions and problems and offers his advice on how to fix them. He is always kind and respectful and offers links to different resources or topics if you want to dive in deeper after the session. I am really benefiting from teen counseling and from Joshua.

Very understanding of all situations, precisely on time, and a very good marriage counselor.

Written by N.I. on Feb 21, 2021 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

I like the way Mr. Beavers does his therapy. It's very open, but he also makes me think about important questions with no pressure. He helps me feel heard when I realize things about myself and he helps me come to terms with those things too.

Written by H.A. on Jan 20, 2021 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I've loved the concrete tools that Joshua has given me!

Written by B.R. on Jan 19, 2021 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and sleeping disorders

From the first session, Mr. Beaver has been easy to speak with and digs deep to get you thinking about the "whys" that plague our actions and thoughts. He provokes vulnerable conversations in a respectful way and appropriately brings back conversations for clarity and to look at them from different perspectives. He is calming, makes great eye contact, takes great notes, and solicits deep and vulnerable conversations.

Written by K.R. on Jan 13, 2021 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Joshua creates a comfortable experience and makes you feel free to open up and say the things that need to be said. This has been a very healing and enlightening experience for my partner and I. We look forward to continuing our sessions with Joshua through the teen counseling platform. It has been well worth our time and this investment into our relationship is providing a greater return than either of us thought possible.

Joshua Beavers has been extremely helpful and is a wonderful counselor/therapist. He listens and helps me reflect. I cannot rave enough about him.

The best of the best! He’s so patient and listens when I’m trying to put my struggles into words. He always recommends great readings as well!

Written by C.H. on Oct 08, 2019 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Joshua is very helpful and effective and very good at taking a neutral position in couple’s therapy in order to avoid making anyone feel alienated. Easy to talk to.

Written by K.E. on Oct 04, 2019 after therapy with Joshua for 3 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, and grief

Josh is an excellent counselor who strikes a perfect balance between being human and remaining professional. He helped me work through several complex issues in my marriage, and also helped me work through my grief and loss involving a close friend. He is well-researched, responsive, and truly cares for his clients. I highly recommend him.

Written by K.E. on Aug 21, 2019 after therapy with Joshua for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

After many years of experience in counseling, I have learned to treasure some counselors. Josh is one of them. Our sessions are a perfect balance of processing and problem solving, all while my concerns and needs are respected.

This is, by far, the best counselor I have had! I have had many, but Joshua is the best. I’m continually amazed how engaged he is in our conversations and seems to really “get me,” and I’m not an easy person to get to know. I like how he offers sound advice and practical actions that can be taken. He really seems to meet you where you are in life and help you improve from there. Been seeing him for a brief time but has already made huge improvements in my life. Definitely recommend!!

Written by E.L. on Jun 27, 2019 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

Joshua Beavers is extremely receptive and understanding. He offers a lot of insight for situations and and how to handle them.

Written by L.E. on Jun 02, 2019 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks

It’s only been a few weeks since I started working with Joshua Beavers, but I can already see massive changes in the way I look at my life and my feelings. He is big on positive reinforcement and focusing on what’s working for me, rather than spending the whole time focusing on the negative aspects of my mental health. He is quick to respond, very thorough, and incredibly encouraging. I highly recommend him to anyone serious about recovering from mental illness.

Written by J.E. on May 24, 2019 after therapy with Joshua for 3 months on issues concerning relationship

Josh is sincerely the nicest human being I have ever encountered. He genuinely listens to our issues and concerns and always offers constructive ideas that could be helpful to us. He is very neutral in that he does not take sides in our issues but asks questions and helps to guide us through them. He is very attentive to our needs and very flexible with our schedule as well. I would recommend Josh to anyone.

Written by C.O. on Feb 14, 2019 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks

I've tried some counseling before, but Joshua really knows what questions to ask and how to approach me to get me to let my guard down. He's been great!

Written by A.M. on Feb 04, 2019 after therapy with Joshua for 4 months

Josh is amazing. He has helped my daughter work towards communication and sharing what she is going through. I would recommend Josh. He is a great listener. He has helped my daughter navigate through difficult issues. We appreciate him.

Josh is great, understanding and insightful. Enjoyed working with him on sorting out my issues.

Written by C.H. on Oct 25, 2018 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks

Joshua has been great so far. I'm not a fan of counseling normally, but I can't deny the benefits of my sessions with him. I am genuinely feeling like a new person

Written by D.R. on Oct 07, 2018 after therapy with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

Out of the diverse handful of therapists I've had sessions with, Joshua is the only counselor I've ever had who finds an effective balance between the extremes of "helpful, knowledgeable professional" and "just a person like me."

He is timely and well-worded with thoughtful responses, none of which have ever seemed mindlessly repetitious, irrelevant, or patronizing; The polar opposite of my past experiences in therapy in the best way possible.

Despite his fantastic use of the messaging features offered at teen counseling, I still suggest you opt for phone and/or video call sessions, as you will cover much more ground this way. Even if you normally have anxiety or social aversion surrounding these features as I do personally, I still highly recommend you at least give them a try. Not once in our conversation did Joshua's responses give me the impression I was being judged or scrutinized harshly, so I didn't feel the same tension I associated with face-to-face counseling. He does a remarkable job of making you feel at home.

In short, I couldn't have hoped for a better first experience with teen counseling.

We have only used him for a week, but he has helped us with our marriage counseling.
