He is a seasoned clinician with experience in a variety of settings.
Bio of Josh Dodes, LCSW:
Deciding to begin psychotherapy is one of the kindest and most important choices you can make for yourself. It can be a turning point in your life, but it can also feel scary to talk to someone you don’t know well. I provide a warm, safe environment where I will listen carefully and where we will work together to understand and resolve the issues you are struggling with--both in terms of how they affect your current life and in terms of how they became issues in the first place.
I work with adults who are struggling with relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, loss, low self-esteem, and a wide range of other concerns. When you come into my office, we will talk together about what you are struggling with and where you are feeling stuck. I believe therapy should be an interactive process, where you and I work together as a team, and where we can talk about anything that is important to you.
I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Yale University and my master’s degree in clinical social work from New York University. I have seen individuals for several years as a therapist in New York City, first at the Metropolitan Center for Mental Health and then at the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center. I have advanced training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, but I draw upon a number of treatment approaches in my work, including relational therapy, psychodynamic therapy, self-psychological therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
I am looking forward to working with you!
