Joshua Nelson, PhD, Psychologist in New York
My education and training took place at a number of local institutions including Columbia University Medical Center, Lenox Hill Hospital, and New York University. The majority of my work has been with adults, young adults, and adolescents who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship problems, drug or alcohol use, or post-traumatic stress reactions. These clients have often begun working with me after having engaged in their own long-term struggles. If you are reading this page, then you may be constantly angry or guilty, sad or scared, ashamed or overwhelmed. You may be considering finally trying to reach out for help.
I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about how we can work together towards helping you to feel better and improve your life, whatever your concerns and struggles may be. Therapy is learning how to trust--both yourself and others. I would like to facilitate that trust.
I conduct live online video sessions (using Skype) with clients for whom consistent in-person meetings are not always possible. Lastly, I recently joined the faculties of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
