Dr. Joy Browne - Weekdays 1pm - 3pm
A licensed clinical psychologist, Dr. Joy is beloved by her listeners for providing advice that is compassionate, practical and substantive. With a quick wit and an ability to cut to the heart of the issue, Dr. Joy guides listeners through the trials and travails of their daily lives, always asking them, "What’s the question?" She dishes out advice on everything from marriage and workplace issues to Broadway’s hits and misses, and weekend movies worth seeing.
Dr. Joy is also an accomplished author. Her books include: It’s A Jungle Out There Jane, Dating for Dummies, The Nine Fantasies That Will Ruin Your Life, and, Getting Unstuck. Dating Disasters, Joy’s newest book, will be on shelves in February 2005.
In addition to her professional pursuits, Dr. Joy is an active volunteer. She was on the board of directors of the Herbert G. Birch Summer Project, helping to run a camp for children and families living with HIV and AIDS, and also worked extensively with the Salvation Army to provide counseling after the World Trade Center disaster. She is on the Advisory Council of the Mayor’s Commission Against Domestic Violence, and is President of the Dr. Joy to the World Foundation, which is currently involved in researching male sexual abuse.
Before finding her way to the airwaves, Dr. Joy was a teacher, private practice therapist and social service director for the Boston Redevelopment Authority, in addition to her work on the space program and her time as an archeologist. She holds an M.A. and a Ph.D. from Northeastern University as well as a B.A. from Rice University, and also did Post Doctoral work at Tufts Medical School. Joy is the mother of one daughter, and keeps herself inspired by dancing and practicing yoga and pilates (when she is not hot air ballooning, that is). Although she has lived in many American cities, Dr. Joy currently resides in New York. After ten years in the Big Apple, she is truly proud to be a New Yorker.
