Dr. Regina Koepp, PsyD, ABPP
I'm Dr. Regina Koepp. I'm a Stanford-trained, board certified clinical psychologist, and founder of the Center for Mental Health & Aging. For close to 20 years, I’ve worked with older adults and their families in some of the most prominent healthcare systems in the nation, like Stanford, Emory, the Veterans Health Administration, and University of Vermont Medical Center.
I’ve experienced first hand the difficulty of helping older adults and caregivers find mental health providers trained to help them. In fact, the vast majority of older adults with mental health concerns DO NOT get the mental health care they need, resulting in worse medical problems, higher health care costs, family strain, and needless suffering..
I created the Dementia Basics for Therapists course to ensure that you have the tools you need to treat the mental health needs of older adults in your care.
It's only with your help that we can meet the mental health needs of older adults and caregivers. So, thank you for being here and doing your part!
