Robert J. Loveland, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Dr. Robert Loveland is a now retired licensed psychologist who provided clinical services to children, adolescents, and families for well over 40 years. Licensed in Oregon in 1978, Dr. Loveland founded and then directed the Willamette Valley Family Center, P.C., a large private group practice in Oregon City, Oregon. He moved his own practice to its current location in 1995. His entire career focus has been on providing psychotherapeutic and evaluation services for children, adolescents, and families, including the full spectrum of clinical issues that occur at home or in school. For years his office was filled with boisterous and strong-willed children, kids with attention and concentration problems, children with a variety of learning disabilities, teens struggling for independence, parents with white knuckles dealing with all of the above, adults dealing with their own unique challenges, and families going through major changes related to marital separation and divorce. His clinical practice involved a wonderful mix of individual and family therapy. Dr. Loveland also began conducting custody, parenting plan, and forensic evaluations for child protection, adoption, and divorce related issues in 1978.  The comprehensive custody and parenting plan evaluations related to divorce eventually became the standard in Oregon and across the country. He has been recognized as an expert witness in these matters in jurisdictions across Oregon and Washington. Dr. Loveland retired the therapy side of the practice in 2008. Custody and parenting plan evaluations, along with court-ordered parenting plan coordination responsibilities, remained the sole focus of Dr. Loveland’s practice since that time.
