About Me

I have a doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology with a special emphasis in neuropsychology and forensic psychology. I am licensed in the state of Iowa and I have worked in it for 13 years. In the time I have practiced in Iowa, I worked with patients with depressive and anxiety symptoms, using an approach to assist patients to identify their current methods of exacerbating emotional problems, such as constant verbalization of their worries. An approach that helps patients to select methods of reducing depressive and anxiety symptoms from their brainstorm-generated alternatives. A modality that challenges patients' thoughts that transform rational concerns into overpowering and irresolvable conflicts. A modality that has given the power to patients to see life through different lenses while empathizing with them; most of these patients are with depressive and anxiety symptoms. Through this modality, patients are assisted to understand the negative functional consequences of their psychological maladies, and how these maladies are perpetuating self-defeating behaviors, such as social withdrawal, disturbed family and interpersonal relationships. An approach that has helped patients select a few methods of reducing depressive and anxiety symptoms through brainstorm-generated alternatives. An approach that has been used to challenge patients' thoughts that transform rational concerns into overpowering and irresolvable conflicts.

Also, I have worked with adolescent and adult patients with serious and persistent mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. I was able to assess and help those patients with traumatic brain injury, neurological diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, Huntington disease, and all forms of dementias. I have also used several neuropsychological assessments in diagnosing depression, anxiety, traumatic brain injury, and all forms of dementias. Additionally, I have worked with family members to perform capacity evaluations and the completion of a statement of expert evaluation forms for competency hearings.

It is important that one recognizes when help is needed to subdue life's challenges. And it is laudable when one actually takes the steps to confront those life's challenges. It is laudable because in today's society it is difficult to get to that stage.

Thank you for recognizing what it takes to get well emotionally. I am looking forward to serving you.

Written by A.N. on Apr 28, 2022 after therapy with Daniel Ephraim for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Dr Pott-Pepperman is very easy to talk to and has a non judgemental open demeanour. His particular experience has helped me better comprehend a personal family situation. His further insights are philosophical (research based) with a pragmatic lifestyle spin so I find our discussions very practical and helpful.

I’m very happy with Dr Pott-Peppermans approach and expertise towards my issues. He’s very easy to talk to and every session so far has been beneficial and enjoyable. I feel very relaxed afterwards and seem to be learning more about myself as I go though the process each time. I wish I could have longer sessions as it never seems enough time. I highly recommend him! Thank you!

Very glad I joined Better Help, definitely recommend the service, you're really missing out if you're looking for this kind of help and not doing anything else at the moment. Dr. Pott-Pepperman is an incredible plus to my experience so far, thanks to all involved for offering this kind of service.

It’s very apparent he has a broad range of expertise. This is so beneficial as many of us are struggling with issues with family members that range in age from teenagers to aging parents. He understands the normal psychology and psychopathology of those individuals at these various life stages. For those of us like myself who have waited for children later in life as is common today, we struggle to manage the needs of both simultaneously.

At first I was very afraid of seeing a Therapist. In my business thats not accepted and I was always scared which made me not talk to anyone. But with Dr. Pott-Pepperman I immediately felt comfortable and good. I‘m happy that I made that step.
