Dr. Slagen has been a faithful servant and leader at Hope Psychological Services since its inception in 1990 until June 2022.  While he is missed in our day-to-day operations, we are privileged to continue to benefit from his wisdom as he serves on our board.  In gratitude for all he has done for Hope, we have named our clinician training program in his honor.

The staff at Hope are excited to engage in the training of students, and post-masters/pre-licensed clinicians.  The training and development of outstanding clinicians has always been an integral part of the mission of Hope Psychological Services.  We are excited by this beginning as it will facilitate increased access to care for our patients, opportunities to learn for new and early career clinicians, and the joy of teaching and training for our more seasoned staff.  We have been blessed to already receive donations from current and past patients who believe in the importance of this work.
