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.”
