I have had the distinct privilege of working side by side with Dr. Cluff and have collaborated many times with mutual clients since 2007. Dr. Cluff's astute knowledge of psychological processes and respective healing modalities is of the highest caliber. He appreciates evidenced based practices and is constantly learning the latest in his effort to help his clients. Dr. Cluff has a gentle, open minded approach whereby his clients feel emotionally safe going to the toughest areas that are most vulnerable to truly heal in a real practical way.
Dr. Cluff is excellent when it comes to facilitating psychological testing. While using statistically valid and reliable measurements, he captures the true person's humanity and context in order to develop an accurate picture and assessment. Better yet, he develops an effective plan that one can effectuate to alleviate their problems and experience real hope. When I need a client tested psychologically, I simply call Dr. Cluff.

Dr Joshua Cluff came into our lives at a time when our daughter was really struggling. With his insightful, intelligent, and very caring ways, Dr. Cluff helped not only our daughter to move on her in young life, but helped all of us to understand our place in our family dynamics and start working on what needed change.
The person who'd introduced us to Dr. Cluff had told me, "he has a very present, kind manner and you can be confused by it. But when you need to see Joshua's strength and ability to manage a crisis, you realize the power behind that thoughtfulness." As we learned, she was absolutely right.

When my family found ourselves in a difficult situation, we were directed to Dr. Joshua Cluff. After another psychologist had produced a deeply flawed evaluation, Dr. Cluff acted quickly and yet thoroughly. He took the time necessary to gain the trust of a child who trusted few adults; to review the record; and to interview in depth those who knew the child. His demeanor was professional, yet empathetic and honest. The report he wrote, under a time constraint, was nuanced and well-reasoned, painting a clear picture of the child’s strengths and weaknesses and giving useful recommendations for minimizing risk factors and providing support. As a professional working with children in a related field, I am happy to recommend Dr. Cluff to anyone who needs his services.
