I am Dr. Doug. I help people change their lives. The simple truth is: no one cares how much you know until they know how much you care. My success with the people I counsel comes from my caring combined with my knowledge.

I am a graduate of Harvard Medical School and Stanford University. I am trained and Board certified as a physician, a psychiatrist, an individual and couples therapist, and a family therapist. For more than forty years I have been highly successful helping people with problems like relationships that aren’t working, failing marriages, anxiety and depression, alcohol and drug problems, attention deficit, loss and grief among others. I published the book Attract Love, Intimacy and Money and I have a medical license in Florida and in Massachusetts.

I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and Los Angeles, California. I practiced psychiatry in Boston until I moved to Florida in 2005. I have been married for 31 years. We have four children and six grandchildren in our reconstituted family.

You can find me on Google Plus: Dr Doug Welpton

How many presents did you get?
Feel hurt or resentful?
How many did you give?
Did you keep score?
How many hearts did you touch?
How many souls did you embrace?
A child was born on Christmas who showed the way:
Love, comfort, heal, forgive even unto death.

To blame no one but myself,
To take full responsibility
For everything I’ve said or done,
Thought or felt,
Wow!

Our Image of God
Shapes our lives,
A punishing judge,
A supporting guide,
Absent,
Non-existent,
Which do you choose?
How is that working for you?

Santa Claus is a messenger from God,
He shares abundance, generosity, jovial caring,
Scrooge and the Grinch are stingy,
Wearing wizened hearts and shrunken souls,
We strive to be Santa and not Scrooge,
Copious presents and seven course meals,
Too much of a good thing boomerangs,
God disappears in “stuff” and a Roman orgy.
