Dr. Robert Mcelhose

Psychologist

About Me

I received a PhD in clinical psychology in 1973, and have acquired post-docs in gerontology and addictions. Humor is essential at some point; it's curative. I've worked in hospitals, private practice and was director of a community mental health center in Wyoming. I've taught graduate students at the University of Sydney, AU and done psychotherapy with students and staff there. I LOVE doing psychotherapy, and will probably do this the rest of my life. I've been helpful in treating anxiety, panic, depression, bipolar, dual diagnosis, addictions, ptsd and trauma, attachment disorders, sleep problems and gender identity and LGBTQ issues.

I have been seeing Dr. Bob for a very short time, but I can say that I’ve seen my share of therapists over the past few years and it’s relatively quick to discern whether or not a therapist is seasoned and knowledgeable. Dr. Bob has both of these qualities in spades. I felt heard and seen. He asked me really simple but insightful questions to allow me to see things in my life more clearly by letting me come to my own natural conclusions. He’s excellent! Thank you!
