About | Dr. Joshua Cohen

Dr. Joshua Cohen

Dr. Cohen has a passion for mindfulness having both experienced first-hand the benefits of these approaches and understanding the science behind them. He brings a warm-hearted, approachable, and calm presence to the mindfulness groups that he facilitates.
``When you lift your head and shift into present moment awareness, the serenity is there waiting patiently for you to arrive.” ~Stan Steindl

After graduating from Johns Hopkins University with Phi Beta Kappa honors, Dr. Cohen went on to earn a PhD in clinical psychology at the University of Michigan. He then completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in rehabilitation psychology and neuropsychology at the University of Michigan Hospital. Much of Dr. Cohen’s clinical experience has included working with patients in hospital settings, including the JFK Center for Brain Injuries and Children’s Specialized Hospital.  

Presently, he is co-founder of the Two Rivers Mindfulness Institute and founder of Two Rivers Behavioral Health, in New Jersey.  He specializes in serving individuals and families with acquired brain injuries, ADHD, PTSD, and Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as stress, anxiety, and depression.   

Dr. Cohen also has a passion for mindfulness having both experienced first-hand the benefits of these approaches and understanding the science behind them. As such, Dr. Cohen meshes mindfulness-based interventions in his private practice and enjoys co-facilitating mindfulness-based programs, such as mPEAK and MBSR. He earned qualifications in Mindfulness-Based Habit Change (MBHC), a program developed by Brown University mindfulness researcher and neuroscientist, Judson Brewer, MD, PhD.  Dr. Cohen enjoys facilitating MBHC groups to coach clients on changing habits that perpetuate anxiety (e.g. stress eating, procrastination).  Dr. Cohen is also certified as an mPEAK Coach through the University of California San Diego School of Medicine’s Center for Mindfulness.  

Dr. Cohen brings a warm-hearted, approachable, and calm presence to the mindfulness groups that he facilitates. 

He is excited to be part of the O-NJ Alliance (an Ottawa Meditation & Wellness – New Jersey Two Rivers Mindfulness Institute Alliance) to serve online groups – individually or corporately – in discovering the benefits of mindfulness.
