Andrew Joseph, EdM, MA, LMHC (Research Associate, Guest Presenter in Immersion 2022), is a psychotherapist in private practice in New York City. He earned his undergraduate degree in psychology from Trinity Western University in Langley, BC, and an MA and EdM in psychological counseling and mental health counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University in New York. Andrew was recruited by his Marriage and Family Therapy professor at Columbia, Gil Tunnell, to work with Diana Fosha. Diana introduced Andrew to her co-leaders of the AEDP research project, Jenn Edlin and Shigeru Iwakabe, who invited Andrew to join the AEDP research team as a research assistant in 2018. Andrew was promoted to Research Associate in 2021.

Andrew’s clinical training started at Kip Therapy serving the LGBTQAI+ community in Downtown Manhattan, where he practiced under the supervision of AEDP therapist Negar Morshedian, and then upon graduation, in private practice under Diana Fosha’s supervision.

In 2020, Andrew was one of the authors of AEDP’s first outcome study, published in the APA’s journal Psychotherapy. Later in 2020, he co-authored a widely read paper, published in Counseling Psychology Quarterly: “Clinical recommendations for psychotherapists working during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic through the lens of AEDP.” Andrew has presented his work at both AEDP Immersion and at the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association’s Annual Conference.

Before becoming a psychotherapist, Andrew built a menswear label, and his original clothing designs were featured in The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, and GQ. He continues to use his curious and creative mind both clinically and academically. In his spare time, he enjoys snowboarding and spending time with his family and friends.
