About Dr. Davis

I am a Montana native, born in Butte, raised mainly in Great Falls, and I have been living and working in Missoula now for about 13 years.
I did my undergraduate work and also earned a Master's Degree in Experimental Psychology at Montana State University in Bozeman.   I received my PhD degree in Professional Psychology with specialization in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in 1990.  

 returned to full-time private practice in March of 2016 after serving as the Director of the Pain School program at the Providence Health & Services St. Patrick Hospital Montana Spine & Pain Center (MS&PC) for the previous 8 years. Prior working at the MS&PC, I had been in private practice in Great Falls for about 15 years.

I am the author of How to Relax: Enhancing your Physical and Mental Health through the Art of Inner Self-Regulation and of Pain School: Everything You Need to know about Persistent Pain and How to Manage it.

I have taught undergraduate and graduate level classes at several universities over the years, have made numerous presentations at professional workshops and conferences, and am currently an affiliate faculty member of the Psychology Department at the University of Montana.

My current professional activities include:
            • Psychotherapy (adults only) for a range of issues including chronic pain, health-related anxiety, other forms of anxiety, depression, & stress-related issues using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Transdiagnostic, and Mindfulness-based interventions.

            • Public speaking
