Josh is a native of Ohio, having grown up in West Chester, Ohio. He then attended Kentucky Christian University where he played soccer, met his wife (Tara), and obtained his bachelor's degree. After graduating KCU, Josh worked for the Department of Juvenile Justice in Kentucky. It was during this time that he began to recognize his desire to counsel. Josh and his family moved to Colorado and he pursued his graduate degree from Colorado Christian University.
