Richard V. Morhaime, Psy.D.Clinical Psychologist


Covid-19 notice: Out of safety concerns during the ongoing pandemic, I have switched over to a hybrid model of care, in which I am seeing clients both in-person and remotely using a secure, HIPAA-compliant, online video platform. Treatment modality is based on logistical factors such as scheduling availability and health status.

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 masters and 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, including high level executives from all over the world and U.S. State Department employees and their families.

The opportunity to live abroad for so many years gave me a unique firsthand insight into the cultural adaptation process and its many challenges, as well as providing me with a great awareness of, and sensitivity to, the role of culture in how we perceive and interact with the world.

I combine evidence-based strategies with a warm interpersonal style 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 be of help, I am happy to offer a free phone consultation to discuss your concerns.
