Joshua Hamrick


Licensed Therapist, MA, LPCC-S, LCPC, LPC


One of the most important things about therapy is the connection and relationship between a therapist and the person seeking therapy. I work really hard not only to help both of us feel connected and heard but also for you to feel like this is a partnership. We're going to get a little uncomfortable together, because that's where most of the good work happens. Outside of work, I really enjoy spending time with my family and my daughter, cooking new foods, and playing chess.

You're just a normal person who's having some issues with thoughts or behaviors. That doesn't mean there’s something wrong with you. That just means we have a chance to work on something together, right here.

Get to know Joshua Hamrick

I just genuinely like people, and I like helping people. One-on-one conversations are something I'm really passionate about. I love being able to walk with somebody through OCD treatment and help them make their life a little better.

As a therapist, working with OCD has been one of my favorite things to do. I'm really passionate about it. I value the chance to build a connection and rapport with somebody and walk alongside them. I won't push you. But I can say 'I've walked people this way before. There's no reason why you can't do it too. And there's lots of evidence and stories that you're no different than any of these people who've succeeded.'

I’ve also had extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, bipolar disorder, and relationship issues.

You are no different than anybody else. You're not going to be the first person who walks through this or the last person. You're just a normal person who's having some issues with thoughts or behaviors. That doesn't mean there’s something wrong with you. That just means we have a chance to work on something together, right here.

Let's talk about it. That's a great place to start. My job here is to help you feel connected and heard, and whenever you're ready for that, that's great.

It has taken me years to take this step in getting help with my OCD and some trauma. I finally have had enough of feeling this way and got the courage to get help. I just had my first session with Josh today and he was so kind and empathetic. His genuine and professional disposition put me immediately at ease which made me so much more comfortable than i expected to feel in my first session. Thank you Josh for your time and skill!

Josh has shown me the way thru OCD, because thats what has to happen. Supports me all around and encourages me to continuously live life on my terms, not OCD’s.

Josh is great! Today was tough working through some big ROCD topics but he was able to explain what we were doing and why which helped me feel more comfortable challenging myself to step out of my comfort zone. Thanks Josh!!!

Josh is very empathetic and a great listener. He has a true understanding of how OCD works and affects those who suffer from it. He does a great job helping gently nudge in the right direction while being sure to be sensitive to feelings, boundaries and comfort. In just a few short sessions I can already see improvement.
