Joe Atanasio, PsyD

“Dr. Joe helped me get through one of the toughest years of my life. His easy going demeanor made me feel comfortable talking about anything; it was more like cultivating my best internal life with a good peer than with some sort of distant authority figure. I can’t say enough good things and I’m so thankful I was able to work with him this year!” — Client reference

I have had specific long term experience working with older adults aged 60+ for over 5 years in long term care nursing home settings. I believe this has greatly shaped my strengths in working with clients of all ages who are experiencing grief and loss.

I work with people on a wide range of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Anxiety/Panic

  • Depression

  • Grief and Loss

  • Life Transitions

  • Parent Stress

  • Relationship Difficulties

  • Trauma

  • Vocational Difficulties

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

You can always stop whenever you’d like without pressure to continue. You can be as open or closed as you want, as long as you are genuine. If you come to work on one issue, and don’t want to address other issues, that is a boundary I respect.
