Michael Rohrbaugh, PhD is a licensed psychologist and clinical professor at The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences. He received his PhD from Kent State University with specializations in clinical and experimental psychology.  He completed his clinical psychology internship at the Brecksville VA Medical Center.

Prior to moving to Washington, DC, Dr. Rohrbaugh was a professor of Psychology at the University of Arizona for 18 years and directed the clinical psychology training clinic. In addition to working in private practice as well as serving as an Army psychologist, Dr. Rohrbaugh taught at the College of William and Mary, Albany Medical College, and the University of North Dakota.

Most of Dr. Rohrbaugh’s scientific and clinical publications focus on how couple and family relationships are relevant to health and behavior problems, including chronic illness and addictions, and on the process of therapeutic change. Based on this research, he and his colleagues developed a family consultation (FAMCON) approach to help families deal with persistent problems of health and behavior that have not responded to other, individually focused interventions.
