Meet Joshua Skinner
Welcome to Skinner Group LLC. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with experience in working with couples and individuals. I have been practicing for more than 5 years and am licensed in California (LMFT # 97000) which requires 3000 clinical hours prior to licensure, and am also licensed in Tennessee (LMFT # 1440).
I have experience working with a variety of issues but specialize in work surrounding stress and trauma. Much of my professional work has been focused on the first responder community where I provided critical incident stress debriefings as well as ongoing one on one therapy. As a result of my experience, I also have extensive experience in working with death, coping and loss.
In addition to my experience as an individual therapist, I have run depression groups, have provided on-going training to first responders and co-developed and presented a course on stress in law enforcement which is taught at a police academy in northern California.
Psychotherapy for first responders
As a medically retired Police Officer, I am uniquely suited for working with first responders. My post masters work was performed in a first responder exclusive private practice that has over 20 agencies on retainer. I have responded to line of duty deaths, assisted first responders with PTSD and provided over 100 hours of training to law enforcement agencies.
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both the State of California as well as Tennessee, I have the ability and experience to assist you with your therapy needs over the phone or through video sessions.
I am experienced in working with couples through video sessions. Why spend the time going to an office when we can meet at your convenience and from the comfort of your own home?
