Horseback riding

Dr. King was raised in the mountain west on a farm, where he learned the value of life and hard work. He very much enjoys the outdoors and the wilderness, especially when combined with friends and family. Some of his interests include fishing or boating at the lake, skiing, horseback riding, and riding motorcycles. He has actively served his community throughout his life through the Boy Scouts of America and other organizations, and believes serving others is an important part of the human experience. His passion for knowledge and helping others made a career in psychology a natural step. He believes in an integrated, humanistic person-centered approach to care. This approach is further bolstered with informed interventions that are critical to each client’s specific needs.  The person-centered approach is the belief that every individual is unique with vital insight into the complexity of their own lives. 


Dr. King also believes that all people have within themselves the strength, courage, and ability to face life and its challenges. He believes in creating an authentic experience and providing an environment where individuals can safely explore their own personal experiences and perceptions.  He offers a variety of treatment and diagnostic services that include but are not limited to, depression and anxiety disorders, OCD, self-esteem issues, eating disorders, personality disorders, co-dependency, divorce, couples and family, spirituality, mindfulness, grief and loss, trauma, and health care psychology (including integrated care, and crisis intervention).  With young people, he believes they need to be heard, treated with respect, and trusted to know and find their own thoughts and emotions.  He enjoys walking alongside them on their journey to growth, health, and self-understanding.  He strives to help adolescents and teens learn the skills to be healthy and make good decisions for themselves, but also how to improve their communication with their parents about their experiences and choices.  When appropriate, Dr. King works with parents to help them be less emotionally reactive to their teens and instead respond from a place of reason, understanding and empathy.  He believes that healthy communication helps improve family functioning, and ultimately assists teens in growing into well-functioning young adults.  With couples, Dr. King enjoys helping partners discover emotional safety and comfort through healthy communication and reignite that lost spark and learn the tools to keep it burning bright.
