Hello, I'm Josh KATES, LCSW. I am originally from the suburbs of New York city and then lived and trained in NYC at New York University's School of Social Work. My early training was focused on short term work using several models of therapy like CBT and DBT. For the last 7 years I have been deeply involved with Schema Therapy (ST) and am a full member of the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST). I am a Certified Advanced Schema Therapist, an approved ST supervisor and ST trainer. For couples and marriages, I also integrate many of the teachings from The Gottman Method of marriage counseling. No one model of therapy necessarily gets at solving your problems or making the changes you might need, so I'm happy to offer many ways to help you including my own life experiences.
Your decision to talk with someone shows that you have the determination to solve your problems. While we can't necessarily change difficult experiences of the past, working with me will help you understand those past struggles and how they may have shaped your life and relationships. Once we have some understanding of those parts of your life, it will help us address the difficulties you are experiencing now. Then we’ll work towards using that understanding to find ways to change unproductive patterns, resolve or improve current challenges and develop strategies to create a better future. If you decide to work with me I will show you how to get you to a better place in your life.
PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE SCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT ONLINE WITH ME - NOT ALL THE APPOINTMENTS SHOWN ARE NECESSARILY OPEN - I WILL MAKE TIME FOR YOU PERSONALLY THROUGH OUR CHAT. THANK YOU!
If you're ready to really look at yourself and your partner together, and confront the challenges you both are facing, I am ready to help you like I have helped hundreds of others. I look forward to hearing from you.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues
- Self esteem
I also have experience in LGBT, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder
