Providing quality, compassionate care for you and your family

Michael Herman, PsyD

Personal Biography:

An Oregon native, Dr. Herman believes treating the mind and the body together lead to the best outcomes for patients, and is excited to work for an organization that is supportive of this approach to integration of care.

Dr. Herman focuses on health psychology and behavioral medicine, and provides individual psychotherapy for a wide range of mental health concerns. He specializes in the mental health concerns associated with chronic medical conditions. Dr. Herman also performs a variety of psychodiagnostic assessments and neuropsychological screenings.

Prior to joining Samaritan, Dr. Herman completed an internship at Spark M. Matsunaga VA Medical Center in Hawaii and a postdoctoral fellowship at Geisinger Medical Center in Pennsylvania.

In his free time, Dr. Herman enjoys spending time with his wife and young son. He and his family enjoy the many outdoor activities the Northwest offers — hiking, backpacking, camping, running and biking — as well as spending time inside reading and watching movies.

“Our thoughts, emotions and behaviors all have an amazing impact on us physically. Too often, we act as though our thoughts are written in stone. Fortunately we have a great ability to learn how to restructure our thinking to create positive results on our actions, moods and even our health.”
