Lonnie M. Stapp


Hello! I’m Lonnie. I am a licensed psychotherapist with a Ph.D. in clinical psychology.

I have deep respect for all of my patients. Therapy involves change, openness, and willingness, and is a personal investment. For these reasons, I believe that the treatment you receive should be effective, and I use a blend of established research and your personal goals to ensure that it is. I specialize in Acceptance-Commitment-Therapy (ACT), which means that I am interested in how you perceive the world through your thoughts, emotions, and senses. This method also ensures that treatment is tailored to you, as we will work together to establish mutual goals. Ultimately, I want to help you improve your life, teach you skills to cope with difficulties you may face in the future, and put myself out of a job! Through our work together, you will become an expert in coping and resilience.

ACT and its mindfulness-based cousins (Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy) are excellent options if you are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, confidence, or grief. In addition, ACT has been adapted over the years to specifically treat PTSD, depression, anxiety, and panic disorders to name just a few. If you have been experiencing these problems, I would love to meet with you and discuss your treatment options.

Starting therapy may feel nerve wracking, intimidating, exciting, and sometimes confusing! Whether you are feeling apprehensive or are eager to start, I am looking forward to joining you on this journey.

Outside of the office I enjoy nature walks, trying cuisine from around the world, attempting to reach optimum caffeination, and making memories with my family and friends. I am owned by two adorable, albeit sometimes mischievous, cats. And like any good Idahoan cheering on the Seahawks and Mariners.
