Josh Maddox, PhD | Wellspring Psychology

Josh Maddox, Ph.D.

I believe therapy is about a greater understanding and acceptance of self and suffering. Therapy is about the courage to be vulnerable and commit to an honest, open relationship with self and others. Through this kind of relationship, I believe the value of authenticity illuminates what makes you uniquely you. The strange paradox is this is what also connects you in deeper more meaningful ways to others.

Therapy is a working relationship and a collaborative process. As a person, I am going to be in our relationship as my authentic self, and cultivate a space of curiosity and compassion for you to explore yourself in a more vulnerable and honest way.

My therapeutic approach is individualized based on your needs and goals. I have training in a variety of modalities including: humanistic and existential psychotherapies, attachment theory, psychodynamic interpretation, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, stress management, conflict resolution, communication skills, and spirituality.

At the onset of treatment, we will discuss what has brought you into therapy and your goals for treatment. Together we will decide how to address your needs and challenges. My goal is to empower and support you in the therapeutic process and guide you to solutions that not only resolve what brought you into therapy, but provide you with greater meaning and fulfillment in your life.

Prior to my time in private practice, my journey in mental health care included settings such as, nonprofit organizations, intensive inpatient and outpatient programs, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and homeless shelters. I hold a doctorate in clinical psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, CA. When I am not practicing therapy, you can find me changing diapers, cleaning up messes, and raising 2 small children and 2 large dogs. I enjoy sleeping, listening to and creating music, painting, working out in nature, and being a student of life.
