In this time, he has amassed a great deal of expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of problems that have plagued his patients. The large majority of the people who come to him for help have been in treatment with someone else prior to finding him and it is Dr. Ogden’s goal to be your last therapist. He has seen it before and knows how to help.
Dr. Ogden is a Texas native and long time Dallas resident who decided as a college sophomore that his calling was as a psychotherapist. He completed a bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Howard Payne University in Brownwood, then went directly into a master’s program in Counseling Psychology at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. Upon completion, he worked several years at Richland Community College in Dallas as his wife finished her training and then was accepted back at Texas Tech where he completed his Doctorate degree in Counseling Psychology. This was followed by a residency in Clinical Psychology at the V.A. Medical Center in San Antonio. As his experience accumulated and the field changed, Dr. Ogden decided an additional type of training would make him a better psychologist and so completed a Post-Doctoral Masters in Clinical Psychopharmacology after almost twenty years doing psychotherapy.
For 25 years, Dr. Ogden maintained a professional relationship with Paul Meier Clinic in Dallas where he served as a psychotherapist, prepared assessment with inpatient, outpatient, and day hospital patients, served as regional director, as well as clinical consultant to both the organization as a whole and to individual service providers of all types within the group, and supervised other psychotherapists in training. What this means for you is a breadth and depth of expertise not often found and a proven track record of success. What you’re looking for.
Dr. Ogden is respected by his peers and a leader in the professional organizations to which psychologists belong. He is a past president of the Dallas Psychological Association and served as president of the Texas Psychological Association in 2012
