Joel Rosow is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Murray Hill, Manhattan who specializes in anxiety, college student mental health, life transitions, relationships, self-esteem, and stress management.
Joel takes a strengths-based approach and integrates mindfulness practices, breathing exercises, and problem-solving techniques. He also utilizes elements of Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), and Supportive Therapy. He works with his clients to explore what new coping strategies they can employ to help manage their symptoms or alleviate some of the pressure they are feeling. This involves brainstorming possible strategies and picking one to test out between sessions.

Clients learn how to deal with emotions that come up during a session, and Joel works with them in the present moment to better understand what is going on beneath the surface.
