Marriage Counselor, Family Counselor, Sex Addictions Therapist

Joshua Nichols, LMFT, CSAT

I am a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) in private practice at Family Solutions Counseling in NW Oklahoma City. I have a passion for helping build and strengthen marital and parent-child relationships as well as helping individuals with personal growth. Although my strongest strengths lie in the areas of communication and conflict resolution, rebuilding relationships after infidelity, parenting and parent-child relational issues, grief and loss, and overcoming sexual addictions and impulsivity, my expertise cover a wide-array of mental health and relational issues.

I believe that people are inherently good; therefore, it is my perspective that people are not the problem, but problems simply find their way into people's lives. My job is to help individuals, couples, and families learn to effectively cope with their existing problems as well as find solutions that will remove the problems from their lives and relationships so they can function at a higher capacity.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Family Studies and Vocational Ministry from Oklahoma Christian University. I acquired a Master’s degree in the field of Marriage & Family Therapy from Oklahoma State University.

Where My Demons Hide

Please watch the video prior to reading this blog entry.  If you can't see it, please click on this link. It is a beautifully written song performed by the band Imagine Dragons.  I have heard this song on many occasions, but it didn’t really register on my radar until a friend of mine showed me the video – I was HOOKED!  I think the video does an excellent job portraying what I think the song is trying to capture or convey – the reality of human suffering. If you haven’t seen it, please take a moment to watch the video before you read on.  

The reality is that this world is hard to live in, plain and simple.  As a licensed therapist, I have made my professional life about working with human suffering.  Day in and day out, good people, like you and me, walk into my office and tell me some of the darkest stories I have ever heard; stories, at one time, I thought only existed in movies or books.  Sometimes these are stories of child physical and sexual abuse; stories of rape; stories of abandonment; stories of the death of children or spouses; stories of self-injury and suicide; stories of shame and despair; stories of loss and ambiguity.  So much hurt.  So much pain.

Well, here we are.  We hav reached the end of the Marriage Myth Series.  I hope that these articles in some way, shape, or form have been enlightenin, uplifting, and challenging for you.  Just in case you missed one, I have provided the titles and links to four previous articles:

  1. Myth #1: Marriage is about COMPROMISE.
  2. Myth #2: Find Someone that will MAKE YOU HAPPY.
  3. Myth #3: Marriage is about UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
  4. Myth #4: All you need is LOVE.

Marriage Myth #5: Marriage is FOREVER.

What?! This is just ridiculous!
