For Dr. Blumer, it started with learning first aid as a lifeguard. From lifeguard to EMT and then on to medical school he went. With plans to become a family physician, his career took another turn when he discovered his true calling and passion for providing mental health care to children and adolescents.
Prior to joining Samaritan Mental Health Family Center, Dr. Blumer was in private practice in Redmond, Ore. His multimodal approach to treatment includes conventional psychopharmacologic and psychotherapy as well as less conventional modalities such as quantitative EEGs, referenced EEGs, neurofeedback, meditation, osteopathic manipulative therapy, ontologic process and others.
Dr. Blumer is board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry and adult psychiatry.
In his free time, Dr. Blumer enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. Some of his favorite pastime hobbies include rockhounding, woodworking, swimming and scuba diving.
