Hello, I am glad you found us here at Better Help. Thank you for taking the first step by reaching out. Let me tell you a bit about myself, and if I seem to be a good fit for you, we can begin as soon as you would like.
My name is Josh Burke, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of New York. I have been providing psychotherapy for a wide variety of issues and populations for over seven years. I graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College in 2013 with a Master in Social Work with a mental health concentration. For six years, I provided individual therapy to clients in the city of Rochester, NY, through their primary care offices. I have since moved out of the primary care office and are working as an Independent Therapist via telehealth and in-person consultations.
I would describe my approach to be goal-oriented and client/person-centered. I use Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) & Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). Both modalities are engaging, practical approaches to problem-solving many concerns as they relate to stressors. ACT is an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy that stems from traditional behavior therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. The goals are to learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with inner emotions and, instead, accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations that should not prevent oneself from moving forward in their lives. This helps people begin to accept their issues and hardships and commit to making necessary changes in their behavior, regardless of what is going on in their lives, and how they feel about it.
Difficult and unpleasant times are part of the human experience. I understand seeking help can be a vulnerable step to take. Exploring the healing process or enriching one’s personal growth, first and foremost, requires establishing a trusting and emotionally supportive relationship. Change is not easy, but it is possible.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Josh Burke. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I appreciate Josh’s patience with me while I work through the difficulties in my life. He is both relatable and honest; caring and able to hold accountable. He possesses the ability to walk the fine balance between these seemingly opposing character qualities.
This dude rocks!
Josh is the most human therapist I've worked with since I started therapy. He's always made me feel comfortable and heard no matter the size or scope of the problem I'm relaying. He's easygoing, funny, and always knows exactly what to say. I hope to continue to work with him for the foreseeable future.
I truly couldn’t be happier with Josh. I even brag to my friends that I have a therapist so great
I could not have asked for a better therapist. Not only was josh super accommodating when it cam to fitting in my sessions and making changes when my schedule had to shift. He has helped me alter my perspective, recognise my unhelpful tendencies and also learn to forgive myself more. All this (and more) has brought me out of a very dark place into a happier, calmer one. And when things get difficult again, which happens in life, I will be better prepared this time - with all the tools that josh has given me.
Josh and I have had 3 sessions together at this point. Either I am extremely lucky and I stumbled onto someone who genuinely treats me like a friend that has known me for a decade, or Josh is just that good. After every session I walk away with a new goal for the week and an aspect of myself that I get to reflect on.
Josh is a great counselor!
He really engages, and fits his approach to my needs. He takes notes, and remembers details about me. I really feel like he cares about me as an individual, and that means a lot. I had a few different counselors before him and didn't get that from them at all.
He gives personal anecdotes, and advice which I find helpful. He is schedule flexible, and continuously remind me of such so I don't feel stressed to make meetings at an appointed time.
Josh is the closest thing to a miracle worker as this world will ever see. The man knows his purpose in this world and is set on showing others how to find their own way in the 60 or fewer years they have left. I wish I had met him sooner.
Josh is a great counsellor, and he has been helping a lot with these sessions!! He deserves a five out of five stars review!!
He’s a good listener and he always has positive feedback’s
It has been 2 week so far and he has been great so far, pretty straightforward on his availability.
