Dr. Josh Friedman Psy.D., CHHC earned his doctorate in Psychology from New York University and received post-doctoral training in Psychoanalysis for the Training and research institute for Self Psychology in New York City. He worked as an eating disorders psychotherapist at the esteemed Renfrew Center of New York and is on the Faculty of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. For more than 10 years, he has worked as a psychologist with adults, couples and families. As his practice has evolved, it became clear to him that something was missing from traditional psychotherapeutic approaches. Curiosity and a chance meeting led him to discover the world of Nutritional Psychology, which teaches that many psychological issues are caused or made worse by underlying biochemical/ nutritional deficiencies. Further exploration led him to the practice of yoga, with its emphasis on breathing, meditation and movement for emotional centering.

Through comprehensive assessment, Dr. Friedman helps patients identify their neurotransmitter deficiencies and provides education about the basic supplements that help alleviate specific neurotransmitter deficiency symptoms. These techniques have been shown to be effective without many of the side effects of medication and can often be used in conjunction with psychiatric medications with approval of the prescribing health care provider.

To enhance his effectiveness in helping a patient to heal and grow, he became certified as a Holistic Health Counselor at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York and has studied with Mental Health Nutritional leaders Dr. Charles Gant, MD, Ph.D., Julia Ross, MA, and Tim Kuss, Ph.D. Dr. Friedman is an avid yoga practitioner and a student of Susi Amendola, ERYT 500.

Dr. Friedman’s practice now offers integrative psychotherapy services which combines the healing power of insight oriented psychotherapy with education about lifestyle and nutritional tools that have shown scientific efficacy in improving mental health symptoms.
