Shoshanna Joss


About Me

Hello! I am so glad that you are here. My name is Shoshanna Root. I am a Licensed Clinical Therapist in the state of New Jersey. It is not easy to reach out for help and then try to find the right match in a therapist. You have made a great first step! I am a Christian woman. I feel comfortable discussing the bible, giving Christian guidance, and praying with you.

I have worked as a social worker for over 11 years. I completed my master’s degree from The University Of Michigan and my undergraduate degree from Temple University. I have done extensive work with families, couples, and young adults. Much of my experience is with grief therapy, supporting those who are experiencing transitions in their lives (a common occurrence in many of our lives), caregiver support, anxiety, depression, chronic illnesses, and trauma. I am certified as a trauma informed therapist. I am a strengths-based counselor. I believe that every one of us has the ability to grow and change. Often, we all need help realizing our true potential. I believe therapy is a partnership. I want to work on goals together that you want to achieve. Additionally, I have a certificate in Alternative and Integrative Medicine. I am able to incorporate mindfulness and meditations into our sessions. I believe that you should leave a therapy session feeling supported but challenged. I am also trained in cognitive behavioral therapy and christian counseling. I am a member of the American Academy of Christian Counselors. We all have stories and beliefs that we have about ourselves, often challenging and confronting our stories leads to positive change.

I check my emails twice daily. I believe it is always beneficial to the therapeutic relationship to start counseling through a video call, but I am also available by text or phone. The majority of my availability for video call is during the day. I do have hours in the evening on Tuesdays and by request. I have limited availability on Saturday mornings. I am confident we can find a time to work together. Thank you for reading my profile and I would love the opportunity to work with you!

I have had just one counselling session so it is difficult to say but in that session Shoshanna was professional and a great listener. She also set me thinking in a positive way about myself. I am happy so far.
