About Joshua Finkelstein, Ph.D.

Life is always a work in progress. For some people, everything just seems to connect into place. For others, even the most successful, life can come to feel overwhelming. Sometimes we know exactly what’s wrong and perhaps we just need a little guidance to work through it. Sometimes, despite our best efforts, the causes of our distress remains obscured, ever-present but unknown. No matter where you are in your life’s journey, it never hurts to have someone to hear you, work with you, and help you reach your goals.

My Approach:

As a psychologist, I aim to create a space for individual exploration while also acknowledging that we often struggle with situations outside of our control. I have experience working with patients from a wide variety of backgrounds and walks of life, including working professionals, students, and aging individuals. I am a LGBTQ+ affirming psychotherapist who also has experience working with patients of all abilities and sizes. I take an open and non-judgmental approach to couples therapy, working with partners in many styles and phases of relationships.

Professional Background:

I completed my undergraduate studies at the New College of Florida, where I graduated with a dual degree in Religion and Psychology, and my graduate studies at the New School for Social Research, where I earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology. My undergraduate research focused on applying psychoanalytic theory to Jewish mysticism, as well as the cognitive abilities of bottlenose dolphins. At the New School for Social Research, my research focused on psychotherapist responsiveness and countertransference in complicated clinical situations. My research has been presented internationally and I am a recipient of the New School of Social Research Dissertation Fellowship in recognition of outstanding scholarly achievement. I have experience treating patients across a wide range of settings, including state, city, and private hospitals, university counseling centers, and outpatient community clinics. I completed my APA accredited pre-doctoral internship at Manhattan State Hospital.
