About me

Hello! My name is Josh and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with roughly 11 years of experience in the field, 6 of which have been in direct, community-based clinical practice. In that time, I have worked in adolescent and adult community mental health/crisis intervention including experience in residential treatment, school-based counseling, family counseling, LGBT+ issues, personality disorders, parenting problems, severe/persistent mental illness, anxiety, relationship problems, depression, family conflict, and trauma. All that said, my aim is simply helping others reach their goals of managing everyday life a little easier.

I like to believe that therapy is firstly based in a trusting relationship and enhanced by my clinical knowledge, not necessarily in disorders/clinical jargon; however, my approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, solution-focused, strengths-based, and psychodynamic therapy and I am comfortable utilizing any/all of these to tailor treatment to your individual needs!

I applaud you for taking the first, often difficult, step towards meeting your goals and I look forward to working with you!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Joshua Heying. 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.

After years of trying therapy, I did not think I would find someone who I could trust and build a relationship with like the one I have now. Joshua is the best therapist I have ever had after lots of trial and error. I know picking out a therapist is really tough. Would highly suggest Joshua to anyone I know. He is amazing!

Josh has been a delight to work with! From providing a safe and comfortable space to share, to helping me find humor and lightness while navigating life changes. I'm a big fan. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

I’ve been working with Joshua for a little over a year and we’ve made a lot of progress. He does a great job of listening to and validating my thoughts and feelings but also challenging them when needed. He’s great

I’ve had 3 sessions so far with Josh. His attentiveness has been remarkable, I feel heard. He’s definitely opened up my thoughts about myself
