Dr. Ogren is a post-doctoral fellow at ELEOS Psychology Center working closely under the supervision of Dr. Elizabeth Wagner. In his work with individuals and families, Dr. Ogren prioritizes building a strong relationship through sincere interest, deep listening, and a devoted presence. Warm compassion, collaboration, and curiosity are cornerstones of his work as he seeks to help people thrive in their relationships and experience healthy emotional expression. As a parent and a psychologist he has a passion for helping parents connect with and care well for their children amidst the joys and challenges parenting brings. In addition, Dr. Ogren has extensive experience working with teens, young adults and adults treating anxiety, depression, relational issues, trauma, family struggles, substance abuse/addiction, and more.

Dr. Ogren effectively utilizes and integrates numerous evidenced-based treatments. Although psychodynamic theory and treatment are the foundation of his work, he incorporates many other orientations such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical-behavioral therapy(DBT), and brief psychodynamic therapy. He utilizes emotion-focused techniques (EFT) as well as mindfulness-based interventions (MBCT) to help individuals feel more grounded yet fully alive in their experience. A common thread amongst these therapies is their emphasis on the centrality of relationships for well-being. He desires to be responsive to the needs of those he counsels while offering tools and techniques that can be employed long after the conclusion of treatment.

  • Preschool age children (3-5 years old)
