I help my clients create sustainable balance in all aspects of their lives so they can be happier and feel more fulfilled. For 25 years in clinical practice I have worked with a wide range of clients: adults, couples, adolescents and children.

I am a state-licensedPaul Josephson, Psychotherapist, couples and relationship counseling, business and success coaching, psychoanalysis and cognitive behavioral therapy. Clinical Social Worker and psycho­­therapist and a successful businessman. I've studied psychology and social work at The University of Pennsylvania, New York University, Cornell University and The Harlem Family Institute. Additionally I've done extensive graduate level research in neuroscience at Columbia University and the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.

I grew up in New York City. As a child I attended the Ethical Culture Fieldston Schools where I learned to embrace inquiry, community and personal values.

As an undergraduate at the University of Pennsylvania I designed lab experiments that explored the roles of endogenous opiates in learning, addictions and motivational states like Love.

In my 20′s I increased the revenue of a major department of an international manufacturing business from one million to seven million dollars annually, and rebuilt, staffed and managed a manufacturing plant.

I have served as a psychotherapist, a supervisor and a member of the The Harlem Family Institute Board of Directors, a non profit that provides free counseling services to school children in Harlem, New York City.
