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

“I can’t make Marcie happy,” Titus’s eyes moistened

Marcie nodded, both sides of her mouth turned down
“I do everything I can,” said Titus

Ollie sat forward looking eye to eye with Titus
“It’s not your job to make Marcie happy,” he said
“Abraham Lincoln wisely observed,
‘Most people are as happy as they make up our minds to be’

His manner gentle
His eyes tender
His smile approving
His heart forgiving

We can’t stand His vulnerability
He accepts death to save us
He is the sacrificial Lamb
