About Joshua Nice

Hi, I’m Josh Nice!  

I’ve loved working with families and kids in my hometown for years – and now across the state! My multicultural family taught me to celebrate people’s differences and see those as strengths that help us grow and overcome difficult times. This value is something I bring to my practice.

I’m interested in how stress, life transitions, and trauma impact how someone feels about themself and their relationship with the world. 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 being a calming and non-judgmental presence, having an empathic and ‘meet you where you are’ approach to each session.

My Background

I graduated from Millersville University with a Masters’s Degree in Social Work, where I honed clinical skills while pursuing causes related to community needs. Before MFC, I worked with families on issues such as trauma, attachment, individual and group relationship dynamics, domestic/family violence, self-harm, and developing healthy boundaries.

I used Eco-systemic Structural Family Therapy (ESFT) to support people facing severe emotional struggles to develop coping skills while changing relationships and patterns between them and their loved ones, peers, school, and the community.

While not a couples therapist, I have experience and appreciate working with them and or family dynamics. Additionally, I’ve worked with adolescents and adults identifying as part of the LGBTQIA community, and it’s something I very much enjoy and appreciate.

In Session

I tend to be more relational and emotion-focused than seeing things through a strict, clinical, and thought-based lens; in other words, we’ll talk to each other like people. I move at a deliberate pace, sometimes based on the week. Music and art have played a significant role in my life, opening me to a more creative, fluid process. I believe that building a strengths-based, trusting relationship together will determine our success more than anything.

Techniques we might use together include but are not limited to DBT, Mindfulness, CBT, Music and Art interventions, Solutions Focused, Motivational Interviewing, ESFT (systemic, structural), Attachment-Based interventions, Trauma-Informed Interventions, Mind-Body connection, Somatic, and Emotion-Focused methods.

I look forward to the opportunity to learn about you and work together to discover your strengths and coping skills to help manage your challenges.

About Me

When I’m not a therapist, I’m probably enjoying anything music-related, walking a trail, cooking, maybe rooting for a Philly sports team, or seeing my nieces and loved ones. I am passionate about social justice and human rights issues, which informs how I treat people in and outside the office. Ask about me if you think we’d be a good match!
