Jolie Krechman, Ph.D.

I’m a licensed psychologist with over 20 years of clinical experience.  I completed my graduate training in the Bay Area in 1997 at the California School of Professional Psychology. I relocated to Portland for my pre-doctoral internship and started my practice in 1999, after completing licensure.  I have a forensic background and for many years conducted evaluations for the courts, primarily in parenting matters.  I also worked extensively for the Department of Corrections, providing mental health services to inmates for several years.  In 2007, I decided to focus my time building my therapy practice and participated in a two-year analytic program at Oregon Psychoanalytic Center.

In 2013, I decided to further my studies and began analytic training at ICP, participating in the weekend program.  I am currently a fifth-year candidate. I was drawn to ICP for a variety of reasons, primarily for the breadth and plurality of the program and the emphasis on two-person psychologies. I have learned a tremendous amount and am honored to be part of such a great institute.  In my practice I work with older teens and adults on a variety of issues and view the therapeutic process as a collaborative one in which both therapist and patient are working together toward a common goal.  I would describe my style as curious, active, and attuned.

If you would like more information about me and my practice, please visit my website at or you can reach me at 971-219-5985 with any questions.

My office is located at 2066 NW Irving Street, Suite 2, Portland OR  97209.
