About Me

I have been working as a mental health professional for 14 years. My approach is solution focused. I am not primarily concerned with how or why your present challenge developed, but rather will assist you in finding a way forward. I hope to elicit and reinforce your positive attributes and competencies and help you to access your inner strength. My goal is that you should feel better about yourself and life in general with the completion of our session together. Your ability to change or improve your situation depends on your desire to do so. My job is to awaken that desire within you.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Joshua Siskin. 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 think joshua is extremely caring and dedicated. He's very respectful, punctual and from our short experience he seems like a very capable, skilled and knowledgeable professional in his field. And wiyh that said, a disclaimer should be said as well, the timing of this question is too soon for accurate and strongly based insight. Either way, Joshua Siskin is definitely a very precious soul and he really, really listens.

I don't know if that's the case but better help asked me for a review after what an algorithm would probably see as possitive interaction, so if my hunch is correct, the portion of the good / bad reviews might be controlled by manipulation and that's something more appropriate for a pay to win phone game and not a platform for psychological services. If that's the case and if the reviews are monitored - not cool betterhelp, not cool.

Anyway, Joshua Siskin, so far is really great!

Joshua has bright and useful tools for recovery - his positive energy and pragmatic perspective gave me the support and tools I could use immediately to address my issues in work and life motivations and relationships with myself and others. I highly recommend Joshua if you want a jumpstart in your life!

Dr, Siskin is a a very attentive therapist. He knows how to listen, he is very supportive and easy to talk to.
He is really helpful when it comes to finding different approaches and finding a way to make things better.
It's been a short while, but I feel comfortable talking to him and very hopeful for the future...

Since the first session with Joshua I have seen a drastic improvement in my attitude towards life and internal processes , couple of sessions in and I can say that this attitude allowed me to progress in the areas in life of which I considered myself just before 'stuck'
I can go on and on but to keep it short and precise - I found massive value in the sessions with Joshua , and for that I'm grateful.

Just one session with Dr Siskin and I already feel much better. He gives practical advices and focuses on the present. Thank you Dr Siskin.

A very positive and optimistic therapist who is not willing to offer pragmatic and realistic solutions while being benevolent and attuned to his clients feelings and needs.

Dr. Siskin is a godsend. He embodies what one thinks of when they think of a great doctor. He is caring, kind, responsive, and thoughtful. He might be a little too good for his own benefit because I have had breakthroughs in our sessions that would have taken much longer with another doctor. He also is able to voice when he think I might be wrong, a quality I find sorely lacking with most therapists.

When I first started working with Dr. Siskin I was overwhelmed with the many issues that my life had encountered. Talking with him and working through my problems with him has let me unburden myself with many things.

I feel immense gratitude for Dr. Siskin and I am could not recommend him highly enough.

I’ve only had one session with Joshua but he seems to be very open minded and his first piece of advice to me really set me on the right path to helping my current struggle. I’m thankful for his advice.

1. Listens attentively to the problem statement. 2. Asks open questions to advance the thought process. 3. Suggests root causes and tests them collaboratively. 4. Introduces humor from time to time to break any tension. 5. A genuinely nice guy.

I met with Joshua Siskin to talk about anger management and stress. He always made me feel like he listened to everything I had to say and he would ask great questions. He provided insights into situations and offered a different perspective. He also suggested some techniques and strategies to me in order to manage anger better. I really appreciated the time, attention, and suggestions that Joshua gave me.

I joined betterhelp to deal with some family issues. My counselor Joshua really helped understand and assess my family dynamic and helped me learn how to cope and set healthy boundaries with them.

Right off the hop, Joshua had some good advice that no one else had. He has a good understanding of the circumstances around my current issues and I look forward to speaking to him again. He has addressed concerns I have about my mental well-being in this difficult time I am facing. Joshua has a positivity and resolution that is solid and made me feel not so alone in the world.
