About Joshua Nice

Hi, I’m Josh Nice (he/him), a licensed social worker (LSW).  

My multicultural family taught me to celebrate our differences and see them as strengths that help us grow and get through difficult times. This is a value I bring to you and my practice.

I’m interested in how your stress, life transitions, and trauma impact how you experience yourself, others, and the world around you. Creating a safe space for therapy is a priority to me, especially knowing not everyone has the same comfort level with a male therapist. I take pride in having a calming and non-judgmental presence, bringing an empathic and “meet you where you are” approach to each session.

My Background

I graduated from Millersville University with a Master’s Degree in Social Work. My background is in social work, so I prefer a strengths-based perspective to therapy. I also have a healthy appreciation for how the systems and institutions in which you live uniquely affect you.

Prior to MFC, I worked with families on issues related to trauma, attachment, individual and group relationship dynamics, family violence, self-harm, and developing healthy boundaries. These are issues I can help you with, too.

I’ve also worked with adolescents and adults identifying as part of the LGBTQIA community for some time now, and it’s something I very much enjoy and appreciate. Ask for LGBTQIA+ therapy with me if you need this type of support.

Training & Techniques

I will use Eco-systemic Structural Family Therapy (ESFT) to support you in developing skills and changing patterns between you and your loved ones, peers, school, and the community.

While not a couple’s therapist, I have experience and appreciate working with them and their family dynamics.

Techniques we might use together include but are not limited to, CBT, Mindfulness, DBT, Psychodynamic, Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, ESFT (systemic/structural), Attachment-Based Interventions, Trauma-Informed, Somatic, ACT, and Emotionally Focused therapies.

In Session

Research shows that the better the therapeutic relationship is, the better the results will be for you. I’ll take pride in building this foundation with you.

I tend to be more relational than clinical with my approach; in other words, we’ll talk to each other like people. I feel strongly about person-centered treatment, which means you will help define the problems and the solutions.

I am an ‘eclectic therapist,’ which means that I use various intervention types. Music and art have played a significant role in my life, opening me to a more creative, fluid process, including using the arts in my client sessions as a therapeutic tool. Let me know if this interests you.

About Me

When I’m not “being” a therapist, I’m probably enjoying anything music-related, finding a cabin in the woods, cooking, rooting for a Philly sports team, or checking in on my nieces. I am passionate about social justice and human rights issues, which inform how I treat others in and outside the office.

Ask about me if you think we’d be a good match!
