Josh Dodes is a psychotherapist who sees adults throughout New York City in his online practice. He specializes in helping "unhappy achievers," people who seem to have so much going for them on the outside, but feel empty on the inside. These individuals are often highly successful, but they experience a lack of satisfaction, fulfillment, or connection to themselves or others--all of which can leave them feeling anxious and depressed. Josh is also very experienced in working with people struggling with relationship issues, perfectionism, loss, low self-esteem, addiction and a wide range of other concerns.
During sessions, Josh provides a warm, safe, confidential space where he will listen to you carefully and where you and he will work together as a team, to understand and resolve the issues you are struggling with--both in terms of how they impact you now and in terms of how they became problems in the first place. Josh believes that problematic patterns can only be resolved for good by understanding where they come from on a deeper level. This is what is meant by psychodynamic therapy: therapy that addresses the underlying causes of longstanding issues, so that you see benefits now, but also benefits that will stand the test of time.
Josh graduated with honors in psychology from Yale University and earned his MSW in clinical social work from New York University. He has received advanced training from the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center in New York City. He writes regularly for Psychology Today.
