Professional statement

Josh Greene is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist based in Rockridge in Oakland. In his private practice he works with adults, adolescents and couples. Many of Josh’s clients come in looking to create change in their lives. He works with all kinds of people with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, work stress and identity. Using a collaborative approach, Josh helps people identify aspects of their lives that are most challenging, and begins the process of working through those difficulties.

Therapy sessions with Josh are oriented around creating ample space for people to further their insight into the parts of their lives that are most troubling. His work is rooted in relational and psycho-dynamic approaches, which use self-reflection and self-examination, as well as the relationship between the therapist and client, as a means of developing increased understanding into patterns and tendencies. Through engaged listening and genuine curiosity, he helps people increase their access into the origins of what ails them.

Josh is focused on clients progressing. He firmly believes that therapy is a co-created endeavor in which the clients are the experts on their own lives. Josh meets them where they presently happen to be and holds space for where they want to go. He uses an open and non-judgemental approach as he works with clients to delve into their pasts, presents and their visions for their futures.

Josh is dedicated to maintaining an inclusive practice in terms of the identities of the people he sees. He has a background in the arts and is particularly attuned to the challenges that creative professionals face. Josh sees people in-person in his Rockridge office, as well as via telehealth, depending on each person’s preference.


Message to clients

Therapy is pretty unique in that it is truly about and for you. For some people the notion that 50 minutes per week will be focused on them is daunting, while for others, it’s deeply alluring. Either way, I aim to work with you as you explore your world. You didn’t choose your family of origin, or your caregivers. You didn’t choose your boss, or this particular political climate. And you didn’t choose to live amidst climate change and deep and divisive inequity. Yet despite your lack of choice in those matters, you are responsible for living your life and finding joy and meaning amidst it all. I am here to support you on your journey.
