Professional statement

Josh Wolf-Powers is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, practicing in Union Square, in Manhattan. His practice is general—he works with all people, regardless of gender or sexual identity—who suffer from problems including anxiety, depression, relationship and professional challenges, and behavioral problems. He has particular experience working with people whose problems relate to sex, sexuality, attachment, and trauma. He also has extensive experience working with people who have experienced—or who have committed—sexual assault, as well as those who have experienced abandonment or who have a history of childhood trauma.

Josh’s treatment approach is grounded in Psychodynamic Therapy, and he is most interested in doing long-term work. He believes the unconscious can provide a lot of insight into a patient’s experience of life. He also spends time exploring an individual’s internal conflicts to understand better what is holding them back from living the life they desire. Josh has worked with many patients suffering from addiction, exploring with them how they can take control of their lives.

Josh offers a warm, safe, and receptive environment for whatever challenges an individual struggles with. In addition to his private practice, he is the director of the Sexuality Attachment & Trauma Network. His office is located near the 14th Street - Union Square subway station.

Message to clients

I work with people struggling with shame - shame about what they want, what they need, what they do. I don't judge. I understand the power that desire exerts over us, and I understand how painful it can be when that comes into conflict with who we want to be, with how we want to live our lives.
