About Dr. Maury Joseph

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Washington, DC. I am a local expert in both short-term and long-term models of psychodynamic therapy. I co-founded the Institute for Emotions and Health in DC, a practice focused on diagnosis, treatment, and research of medically unexplained physical symptoms, psychophysiologic disorders, and TMS symptoms like chronic pain, irritable bowels, headaches, and chronic fatigue. I served as faculty chair of the Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy training program at the Washington School of Psychiatry, but stepped down from that position in 2021 to further pursue my own training in psychoanalysis. I continue to serve as an assistant clinical faculty member at George Washington University and adjunct faculty at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, and I offer a weekly private seminar on psychoanalytic listening. I enjoy writing and presenting about therapy to students and professionals (see my Blogs page). For more on my training and educational history: LinkedIn
