Announcement icon For the time being, all of my services are restricted to existing clients via telehealth. I will revisit this decision on a daily basis.
I provide counseling and psychological testing for an array of issues, but I am passionate about providing Christian counseling to those who are suffering. My education and experience includes both training in professional psychology and Christian theology. This affords me the opportunity to provide professional care that is sensitive to spiritual matters. In addition to counseling, I also provide psychological testing and evaluations designed to clarify diagnoses. This is often very helpful for developing proper treatment plans or making informed decisions about medication. If you are ready to make an appointment, feel free to schedule online at www.joshualefler.com
I have been blessed with training that focused on pursuing professional excellence while remaining faithful to the Christian faith.My counseling specialties include treatment for Mood Disorders (depression, anxiety, Bipolar, etc.), bereavement, marital difficulties, and pornography addictions. My assessment specialties include testing for Autistic Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, and intellectual disabilities.
My office is comfortable and quiet, located in a discrete but easy-to-find building. You will not feel like you are at a sterile medical facility during your appointment. I also strive to make the payment procedure clear and efficient, and will bill your insurance as a courtesy.
