Joshua Lefler, Psychologist  in Bakersfield
“I provide counseling and psychological testing for an array of issues, but I am passionate about providing Christian counseling to those who are suffering. My education and experience includes both training in professional psychology and Christian theology. This affords me the opportunity to provide professional care that is sensitive to spiritual matters. In addition to counseling, I also provide psychological testing and evaluations designed to clarify diagnoses. This is often very helpful for developing proper treatment plans or making informed decisions about medication.

“Being able to handle emotions effectively is one of the key areas I think people have the most difficulty with in life. My main focus in therapy is to give individuals tools to manage overwhelming emotions and "Build a Life Worth Living." The treatment modality I find most helpful to accomplish this is Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or "DBT." DBT is an evidence-based treatment that has been shown to be most effective for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (an emotion dysregulation disorder.) I also am experienced in delivering Prolonged Expsoure Therapy for the Treatment of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD.

“"It's never to late to have a happy childhood" This quote embodies the core belief and hope that I bring into my practice. Most people bring wounds from childhood into their adulthood. These wounds show up in their lives as depression, anxiety, low-self-esteem and unhealthy relationships. In therapy, you can become aware of those wound and how they limit your life today, grieve your losses and learn healthier ways to get those childhood needs met. As this healing occurs, we can explore ways to live life more fully and joyfully and to thrive rather than just survive.

“Anger. Guilt. Resentment. These are the common themes we all struggle with, today. Sadness is all too real when we hurt, and when we do not cope well, or do not know how to cope with our anger, guilt, and/or resentment, we can become depressed. What you will see, is a vicious cycle; a depressed person then becomes angry, and resentful, and can start to feel guilt. We are all able and capable of making better decisions for ourselves and for our loved ones. There is no shame in asking for help...only regret in never trying. I can help you.

“Are you experiencing a personal difficulty, feeling stuck or overwhelmed? The seeds of change are often born in the midst of heartache and loss... Navigating through the challenges of life can be disheartening. It takes courage to reach out when we are feeling vulnerable or when life as we know it seems to fall apart. Sometimes just having someone listen can make all the difference. In a safe and confidential atmosphere, clients tend to discover ways to move beyond past events -- making their life less cumbersome, with more moments of joy and satisfaction.
