Richard V. Morhaime, Psy.D.Clinical Psychologist

Welcome!

Richard Morhaime, Psy.D.

Thank you for visiting my website. I am a licensed clinical psychologist and certified cognitive therapist with over 20 years of clinical experience. Originally from the San Fernando Valley, I graduated from UCLA and earned my doctorate at Pepperdine University’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology.

After becoming licensed in California, I lived for many years in Brazil, returning to the U.S. with my family in 2015. While living abroad, I maintained a private practice that catered primarily to the English-speaking expatriate community of São Paulo. Although many of my clients in São Paulo, Brazil were American, a great number were from other parts of the world, including those on temporary assignment from all over Europe, Latin America, Canada, India, and Australia.

While making my home in São Paulo, I was privileged to treat clients ranging from high level executives of multinational companies to U.S. State Department employees and their families for a wide range of clinical issues. The opportunity to live abroad for so many years gave me unique firsthand insight into the cultural adaptation process and its many challenges.

My personal and professional experiences in Brazil have allowed me a deep understanding of the many stresses inherent in any major move or life transition, whether they are due to divorce or the loss of a loved one or to a change in household composition, neighborhood, school, or career.

I combine a warm interpersonal style with evidence-based strategies to help my clients overcome significant difficulties such as depression, anxiety, anger, and social problems. I invite you to glance through my website to get more of a sense of who I am and what I do. If you have any questions about whether or not I can help, I’ll be happy to speak with you about it at your convenience by phone or email.

In addition to working in private practice, I also provide psychotherapy and psychoeducational assessment services at the Mind Health Institute in Newport Beach (www.mhi-nb.com).
