Robert Pogue is a Registered Psychologist with 24 years
of clinical experience and 11 years of graduate education
and training in psychodynamic psychotherapy
and depth psychology. Robert's scope of practice includes
individual and couple psychotherapy for adults and adolescents.
His practice is focused on the treatment of emotional and
relational problems (see Treatment Areas) utilizing Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy
and emotion-focused psychotherapy.
Robert has a unique blend of two very different backgrounds.
Prior to exploring his passion for psychology and psychotherapy,
he accumulated ten years of professional corporate experience
as an engineer and manager. While engineering is clearly
quite unrelated to psychology, it does provide Robert with
first-hand experience of the stresses and strains of corporate
life. Additionally, this shift in vocations has provided
Robert with the understanding of how life transitions can
be difficult yet fruitful periods in one's life.
While Robert is trained and experienced in several different
models of psychotherapy including: Jungian (symbolic and
imaginal), Rogerian (humanistic or client-centered), and
cognitive-behavioral, his primary focus and passion is
and emotion focused psychotherapy.
