Joshuah Ellis, MS, LPC

Josh has been a minister since 2004 and a part of the counseling world since 2011. He has served on the Texas Corps of Fire Chaplains and has worked with many first-responders and military personnel. Josh is passionate about providing an environment where men feel comfortable receiving counseling services. He has also had success in bringing this approach to couples and helping them reestablish strong and intimate connections with one another. While Josh may specialize in treating men and couples, he is competent and qualified to accept all clients.  

Using an integrative approach to counseling, Josh uses many methods that focus on finding the best possible solutions for his clients as quickly and safely as possible. The goal is self-sufficiency, and not having to stay in therapy forever.

Josh is also pursuing a Ph.D. from Texas Tech University in Counselor Education where he is researching help-seeking behavior in men.

Something Personal...

I am just a regular guy in my 30's. I have been married to the love of my life since 2004 and together we are raising our three boys. I like video games, baseball and tacos.


I happen to have knowledge, training, and expertise in a very particular area and I would like to put that to good use. If you are on the fence about counseling, I understand. It's not an easy decision. Just know that if you decide to give me a call, I will work my hardest to work with you to help you navigate this time in your life. 

Give it a shot. I look forward to meeting you.

Something Personal...

I have spent the last several years gaining experience in the counseling field by not only practicing, but having been a client for my own growth. I use an approach that is tailored to each individual person; learning their needs, goals, and understanding their story. I am here to help you and if you still don't know exactly what you need, that's okay too.

Therapy is an investment and you may believe that you do not have the time, money, or space to focus on you, but what will it look like if you don't? I believe that as long as you take that first step to reach out, anything can happen. You were not made to be in constant battles with yourself or the people you love. You are worth investing in.





The Basics


Give me a call. I'll take some information from you, and answer any questions you have. Then, we schedule a time for you to come in. You will then receive an email with a link to our secure client portal where you can fill out the necessary paperwork. 


Give me a call and we'll talk about this. It's not going to break you.

You have to believe that you being well is worth it though. If you wish, I can provide you with the necessary documentation for you to bill your insurance company.

Sessions take about an hour. No longer. The number of sessions is up to you. 6 weeks is an ideal minimum, but that isn't set in stone. We will discuss the best course of action that works for you and your schedule. 

Session one

We'll schedule a time for you to come in.  Then, we have a conversation. Therapy is collaborative. That mean's you have a say in how it goes. If at any point you feel that something is not working, let me know and we can adjust accordingly.
