About Josh Kaplan

Are you suffering from intrusive thoughts and compulsive behaviors (OCD)? Or are you struggling to recover from past trauma? Not sure how to heal from the deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, and painful memories. I’m glad you found my profile; you don’t have to suffer alone. I specialize in treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other related anxiety disorders. Maybe this is your first time looking for help, or maybe you're tired of spinning your wheels with therapies that haven’t helped. I'll work with you to treat your anxiety using methods proven to be effective.

I treat these disorders using specialized forms of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy including Exposure Response Prevention and Prolonged Exposure. The evidence-based practices I use are supported by research and considered to be the gold standard in anxiety treatment. I received specialized training from the Center for Treatment & Study of Anxiety at UPenn.

One of the most important aspects of treatment is the relationship between the therapist and the client. I'll work with you to create a safe and secure relationship where difficult thoughts, feelings and experiences can be explored. You can expect me to be non-judgmental, strength-based, and empathetic. My clients describe me as laid back, funny and caring.

You want to make sure the therapist has the skills and experience to help... more
