About Dr. Doug Welpton


I am Dr. Doug Welpton.  I am a Board certified psychiatrist and therapist for individuals, couples, and families.  For more than forty years through counseling and workshops I have  helped people change their lives.

I graduated from Stanford University, Harvard Medical School, and the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute.  I did my residency training in psychiatry at Harvard.  I taught on the faculty of both Harvard and Tufts Medical Schools, where I became an Associate Clinical Professor.  I trained in family therapy for two years at the National Institute of Mental Health.  I did additional post graduate training in Imago Relationship Therapy with Harville Hendrix, in Codependence Counseling with Pia Mellody, and in Voice Dialog Therapy with Hal & Sidra Stone.

I began my private practice in 1968. I have counseled people for more than forty years with a high degree of success.  Their problems have included anxiety, depression, attention deficit, marital conflicts, divorce, family problems, substance abuse, alcohol and drug addictions, and post traumatic stress disorders.  I believe my success comes from caring about the people I help combined with my knowledge and experience in how to help.

I have published the book “Attract Love, Intimacy & Money” to help you, the reader, use the information and skills that have helped me in my own life.  Having learned with help how to heal myself, I fulfill myself by counseling and helping others.  My hope is to help you live the life you want, to live fully and joyfully, to love and be loved.

I charge on a fee-for-service basis explained under “Counseling.”
