“Joshua has helped me to accelerate the process of self-understanding, of building my identity, and of discovering meaning for myself. He is a mentor to me, a rock to rely upon (who sometimes helps me to make wiser decisions), and he has opened my mind up to new parts of life in order to become a more multi-dimensional human being.”
