Dr. George Langfield
I specialize in diagnosing and treating mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder and a wide variety of other psychological issues. I also focus on self-growth, self-esteem improvement, and relationship counseling. I primarily use cognitive/behavioral techniques and have developed strong interpersonal counseling skills as well as over 30 years of experience as a therapist.
I have been a counselor and mental health therapist in Pullman for 30 years, since graduating from the University of Idaho in 1988. I have worked in Community Mental Health for all those years and added my private practice in 1993. I became a Washington State Certified Domestic Violence Counselor in 1995 and continued that work until 2013. I accept most major insurances including but not limited to Group Health, Premera, Blue Cross, Regence, Uniform, and Medicare. My private practice is located in the Professional Mall II in the offices of Wilson Psychological Services.
I am originally from Denver, Colorado and moved to Moscow, Idaho in 1986 to attend graduate school at the University of Idaho. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Counseling and Human Services in 1988. I fell in love with the Palouse and decided this would be my home. In 1988 I began emergency services work for Whitman County Mental Health (now Palouse River Counseling) and spent one year working at the University of Idaho Student Counseling Center. In 1989, I began working full time at WCMH and have been there since. I received my Specialist Degree in 1991 and my Ph.D. in 2007. I have been licensed as a psychologist in the state of Washington since 2009. While I love my private practice, I still value community mental health and plan to continue that work in conjunction with my private practice.
I married my wife Nancy in 1990 and look forward to celebrating our 29th anniversary this coming April. I have 2 sons, both graduates of Moscow High School.
