Anne Josephson


My practice focuses on providing evidence-based therapy to individuals across the lifespan. I care deeply about the individuals and families I work with, and together we collaboratively identify their goals in treatment. I specialize in childhood anxiety, specific phobias, behavioral disorders, parenting, selective mutism, executive functioning, and depressive disorders. I have intensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), as well as Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). In addition, I have extensive experience in psychoeducational assessments. I work with schools, parents and patients to understand the results of the evaluations. Further, I explain how their challenges impact them on a daily basis, and ways to help them learn strategies to accommodate for weaknesses, and leverage their strengths.

I would be happy to speak with you about my experience and approach. Please see my website for more information
