Joan Pugh, PsyD

  • Behaviorist
  • Oregon City
Phone Number: (503) 657-1071

Joan grew up in southern California and attended the University of Southern California for her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and sociology. She received her master’s degree in criminal justice from East Carolina University and spent some time teaching there before returning to school in California for her master’s and doctorate in psychology at the University of La Verne. Joan is an Oregon-licensed psychologist and has additional training and certifications in positive behavior support and psychological first aid following disaster and other traumatic events.

Joan has experience with a wide range of assessment and therapeutic techniques. Her favorite part of working with women is helping them see the choices they have and setting and achieving their personal goals for better health—she wants every woman to feel good about herself and her body and to realize that even small changes can make a big difference over time. Joan also enjoys working with retirement-aged women to help them lead full, healthy and enjoyable lives.

In her spare time, Joan loves to spend time with her husband—anything from getting coffee to watching a movie or football (which she takes very seriously as a former member of the USC marching band). She also loves traveling, keeping in touch with friends, reading, baking and crafting and has a nostalgic soft spot for all things 80s and 90s.
