Psychologist and Therapist in Walnut Creek, California Joseph Koudsi, PsyD

Joseph Koudsi, PsyD

Joseph Koudsi (preferred name Johnny) is a psychologist, who has been practicing since 2008. He graduated from Vassar College with a BA in Psychology and the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant University with a doctorate (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology, with a speciality in Adult Individuals and Couples. Therapy is an experience specific to the individual, which is why I use techniques rom various schools of thought to help individuals and couples to the best of my ability. These include psychodynamic, solution-focused, emotionally focused therapy (EFT), and cognitive behavioral. Psychodynamic therapy provides a framework for patients to explore their current issues and feelings and examine the experiences from their past that may be influencing their emotional and behavioral responses in the present. Couple therapy can help a couple identify their needs and expectations and help each partner understand those needs and expectations and decide if they can be fulfilled. The goals of couple therapy may include improving communication, improving connection and intimacy, increasing understanding, and finding healthy ways of expressing our needs to our partner.
