Biography

About Joe Guse Dr. Joe Guse is a former comedian from the Pacific Northwest, who performed around Chicago for several years before deciding to go into psychology as a career. Joe made this seemingly odd transition after working as an entertainer in nursing homes, where he found that there was a very strong relationship between laughter, resilience, and healing. This relationship between laughter and mental health has been the crux of Joe's work as a psychotherapist, and he has since written 19 books on various topics detailing his experiences integrating laughter into his work. Joe works in private practice in Chicago, and also does seminars around the country helping people explore the relationship between humor and mental health in their own lives. Joe holds 2 Master's degrees in Human Development and Counseling Psychology, and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. He is a Clinical Psychologist licensed in New Zealand.
