Fostering Hopes and Josh Foster, M.A., a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor, are pleased to announce the launch of his new mental health counseling practice. The counseling Westminster mental health practice therapist believes that each client’s story matters. Josh is dedicated to helping people find healing from problems, trauma, and obstacles in their stories.
There are no magic buttons or quick-fix solutions when it comes to working through present problems or issues from the past. Having a therapist who will come alongside the client and walk with them while showing empathy, looking for themes, and asking gentle questions is invaluable. He believes that such a therapist is a gift, and he hopes that he can play this role in the client’s life. Josh believes that lives are stories, and by working together using various techniques and long-standing approaches, he will help the client figure out what behaviors and thoughts might be holding them back from living their best life.
In a recent interview, Josh explained, “I lean towards using a narrative approach in counseling. I believe that our family of origin, culture, religious beliefs, friends, events, (and more!), influence all of us, and from these, we construct narratives that affect the choices that we make, what we believe about ourselves, and the world.”

“My hope is that through counseling,” he continued, “we can discover the narratives and beliefs that are causing you difficulty. They are often hidden, and this is where having a counselor who works to know and understand you is so valuable. As we unearth these, we will work towards understanding the behaviors and beliefs it has created and work to replace these with new narratives and meanings. I am an empathetic and encouraging therapist who believes in working collaboratively with my clients. You are an expert in your story, not me. My role is to come alongside you as we walk together, listening for themes and meanings you have given to your experiences and stories. My hope is that through counseling we can discover the narratives and beliefs that are causing you difficulty.”
Josh has a special interest in helping people who have suffered trauma from religious systems, churches, or people. He has also worked with people who are struggling with anxiety, burnout, career change, chronic pain or illness, depression, divorce, family conflict, grief and loss, integrating into a new culture, job loss, and lack of direction. He also provides counseling for loss of faith, impulsivity, life changes, marriage and couples, religious trauma, sadness and depression, and third culture issues.
