Joseph is a husband and father of three children: one girl and two boys. He started off as a volunteer in the slums of Nairobi working with addicted boys and girls (street children). They were being killed daily for stealing to maintain their habit. From this work, he was chosen to do a diploma in counseling to help him work more efficiently with the street children. The bug of counseling infected him and he has never recovered. After completing his Masters degree in counseling, he is currently pursuing a PhD in PTSD. He has worked with addicts, couples, victims of terror attacks, the depressed, and dysfunctional relationships and families. He engages in meditation, and mindfulness exercises to maintain his vitality.
