Dr. Emilie Joseph


My goal is to help you bring as much of yourself into our work together – including your social/cultural identities, personal experiences, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. We will non-judgementally and curiously examine everything that makes you who you are.

I assist my clients to foster a better understanding of themselves and the broader communities and systems with which they interact.

I love to empower people to define those identities and values most important for themselves in the service of living personally fulfilling lives.

Emilie Joseph, Ph.D. Therapist DC

Therapy is powerful, healing, and transformative. I am honored to have helped many people get through difficult times and to be even better than they were before they started having trouble.
