Kari Primo-Liddy, PhD

Kari Primo-Liddy is a licensed psychologist who has practiced for 18 years. Much of her graduate training involved collaboration with physicians. She provided psychological services to patients in a rehabilitation unit and patients diagnosed with breast cancers. After graduating, she moved to Wisconsin, where she coordinate and provided employee assistance services to the local hospital and outpatient clinic employees. She relocated to Maine and, upon learning that the local hospital did not have an employee assistance program, she created one.

Dr. Primo-Liddy helps clients navigate life transitions, decrease depression, overcome anxiety, foster positive relationships, cope with loss, be more assertive, make important decisions, and increase motivation and performance.

Her approach is primarily cognitive behavioral which is based on questioning assumptions, experimenting with different coping strategies, and establishing positive habits. She helps people define their values to set more meaningful goals and often incorporates mindfulness to help focus attention and increase self-awareness.

Dr. Primo-Liddy has enjoyed being a part of the Eugene community for the past five years. In her free time, she spends time with family and friends, walks the hills with her dog, and explores Oregon.
