Meet Jerry Weichman, PhD

I'm Dr. Jerry Weichman. I'm a licensed clinical psychologist and I specialize in adolescents and parenting adolescents and I've done so for the past 14 years. I'm also on staff at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, California. I'm an author of a book called, "How to Deal" for teens. I'm coming out with a parenting book soon. I do a lot of speaking to both the parents and teens at their respective high schools and middle schools about what's going on and what they can do about it. I'm a father. And in my spare time, I really love... I'm a huge active snowboarder and surfer. Great backstory to me is when I was born I had to have my right foot amputated as a kid, and so I grew up with a prosthetic leg. And fortunately, I was blessed with athletic ability and went on to play Division I College Football and got to go to a great game that we played at in Trenton, Nebraska where they were number one in the country and 19000 people and it was really lot of fun. So that's me in a nutshell.

Clinical Psychologist

Dr. Jerry Weichman is a licensed psychologist and adolescent specialist as well as an author, speaker and parenting expert. His clinical practice at Hoag Hospital's Neurosciences Institute in Newport Beach, California provides a window on contemporary teen and pre-teen behavior.

“Dr. Jerry” as his adolescent patients call him, is a young PhD who really relates to teens, speaks their lingo and has felt their pain. Author of the teen survival guide, How to Deal, and noted media expert on teen issues, Dr. Jerry is focused on helping teens cope with parents, teachers, friends and academic pressure, communicating with them in a way they understand to help successfully navigate the dramas and pressures of adolescence.

Dr. Jerry's popular speeches, lectures and seminars have presented assemblies of students, teachers, parents and administrators with practical approaches on how today’s teens can overcome the trials and tribulations of growing up, from coping with bullying to meeting parental academic expectations to walking away from drugs and other self-destructive behaviors. Jerry also sits on the board of directors for the Bullying Prevention Initiative of California and just recently sat on an expert panel for a screening of the documentary Bully.
