Accepting New Clients

Joshua Tan is a student intern currently enrolled with Yorkville University’s Counselling Psychology program. His previous education in philosophy and religious studies have fostered a strong background in critical thinking and spirituality. This background has gradually complemented Joshua’s work experience with a variety of vulnerable demographics, and brought a practical and compassionate approach towards client needs that is mindful of their potential, strengths, and long-term goals.

Having worked with those with intellectual disabilities, at-risk youth, individuals experiencing homelessness, and addictions, Joshua aims to meet clients at their level of thinking and feeling by creating a safe and trusting atmosphere through a strong therapeutic relationship that is founded on the client’s beliefs and values.

Joshua completed an M.A. in the Philosophy of Religion from Dominican University College and a B.A. in Philosophy and Religious Studies from York University. He has recently joined the Whitestone Clinic as a practicum student in January 2022, where he hopes to gain valuable experience with a skillfully diverse and empathetic team that is focused on client care.
