About Me

Pauline Wallin, Ph.D.

Educated at the University of Toronto and the University of Minnesota, I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 1974. My specialties are psychological evaluation and psychotherapy.

Psychology is a fascinating, gratifying profession. Over the years I have certainly seen a great deal of misery, confusion, and despair among my clients. But I’ve also learned to look beyond that, because what constantly impresses me is the strength and resilience that most individuals can find within themselves. Often, they just need to be pointed in the right direction.

In addition to my work with the public, I’m active in professional and community organizations. My goals in these activities are to help people gain a better understanding of psychology and how it figures into day-to-day life. There is a huge body of research that explains what makes us tick. I want people to know about it.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband of 30 years, our grown children (when they’re in town) and two dogs. Exercise and a healthy dose of humor every day help keep me sane.

I’ve learned that life doesn’t need to be serious in order to be meaningful. Laughter is not only one of life’s most pleasurable activities; it is truly a stress reducer.
