Professional statement

Joshua Ring is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in New York, NY. Joshua specializes in helping people better understand themselves, especially when they feel disconnected from themselves and others. Many of Joshua’s clients suffer from anxiety, depression, overwhelming anger, and other mental health conditions.

Joshua is a psychoanalyst, so much of his work with clients centers around building a strong therapeutic alliance together. He helps clients learn more about themselves by encouraging introspection and looking at the meaning behind certain emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. Much of the work that Joshua does with his clients deals with the unconscious and Joshua teaches clients how to look for meaning across their lives.

Joshua earned his Master’s degree in Social Work from Yeshiva University (Wurzweiler School) and his psychoanalytic certificate from the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies. He was previously a teacher and came to therapy after seeing the positive impacts of emotional communication with his students. He’s worked in a wide range of settings and has experience supporting clients of all backgrounds.

Message to clients

Are you a high achieving person and have lost some of your drive? Do you not feel like yourself because your career is at a standstill? Are you feeling like you are always disappointing someone either at work or home? Do you feel torn between your family or dating life and your drive for success? If you answered yes to any of those questions you clicked on the right profile. I understand what you are going through and I can help. My name is Josh Ring and I help highly driven successful people who struggle with the demands of an achievement-driven career so that they can free themselves up to experience greater fulfillment in their lives.

So many of my clients started where you are and are now reporting being calmer, more relaxed, and able to appreciate and enjoy life which has allowed them to tap back into their drive and ambition in a better feeling way. Now they have even more success and most have achieved both their personal and professional goals. I want this for you as well.

I know at this point that may sound too good to be true, and picking the right therapist is not easy. So, I’m offering a complimentary strategy session where I can hear about what’s going on for you, and tell you more about how I work. We can see if it’s a good fit and go from there. Call or text me to set up time to meet.
