DR. JOSH MIRMELLI is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (CA Lic. No. PSY31895) and has been working in the field of mental health and addiction for fifteen years. Highly sought after for his “tell it like it is” no-nonsense approach, Dr. Josh knows how to balance evidence-based interventions with practical tools to foster liberation from unfulfilling patterns of coping and living. He frequently treats people with symptom constellations that are complex, as well as those with prior treatment failures. At the heart of his clinical practice lies a compelling commitment to advocate on behalf of those who are seeking a life worth living. He is intent on exhuming a “whole self” for those who seek respite from the human cutouts they feel they have become, and who are driven to lead more purposeful lives.
Dr. Josh casts a wide lens in his clinical practice, which focuses on Depressive and Anxiety Disorders, Trauma (single-incident and complex), Grief, as well as Couples and Family Therapy. He has received specialized training in Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Insight-Oriented Psychotherapy. Dr. Josh has a gripping affinity for working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community as well as individuals with diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. This, in essence, is what underlies his commitment to integrating cutting-edge research and professional collaboration to foster therapeutic engagement by populations who have formerly been marginalized by the mental health profession.
Dr. Josh has led over one-hundred psycho-educational workshops tailored around the needs of individuals in early recovery and their family members. He has been invited to offer expert commentary on various mental health and mainstream podcasts and internet radio shows. He continues to forge an online and media presence, where he aspires to captivate widespread consciousness around modern mental health issues.
