Meet the Doctor

3 February 2009 2 Comments

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 just listened to your brief video clip on “why you wrote your book.” It was great! But, I need to know the end of the story…you say you learned so much about marriage and you gained passion after viewing the pain the breakup of your marriage did to your children…yet I see a ring on your finger. What happened? Did you remarry your first wife or did you take what you learned and married another?

    Thank you

    My first marriage ended after 21 years. I married someone else and we have been married 29 years. I have learned a lot from both my marriages, especially from the mistakes I’ve made. Like many people I learn the most and remember best from what I’ve done wrong. I am grateful to have been married to two very good women.
