Sheila B. Josephson, PhD, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
I am a clinical social worker with thirty years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. I have a Master's and Ph.D. from Columbia University and I serve in both teaching and supervisory positions at The Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy. My expertise working with couples provided the basis for a course I recently taught to therapists on How To Do Couple Therapy.
I am warm and directive in my therapeutic approach. I combine my formal training (Freudian methods and systems theory) and my extensive experience with an active dialogue with my clients to insure the most effective results.
Through my specialized training, I have developed a considerable practice working with both straight and gay couples. I also have extensive experience working with college-age students and young adults dealing with depression, relationship issues, and struggles with self-esteem. In addition, I have helped parents deal with problems related to their children's lives.
