Phelps County Regional Medical Center (PCRMC) is pleased to announce the addition of psychologist Forrest Rackham, Psy.D, to the PCRMC Medical Group.
Dr. Rackham is a licensed clinical psychologist and has been practicing since 2012.
He earned his Doctor of Psychology in clinical psychology and his Master of Science from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia. He received a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio.
His special interests include acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), hypnosis, rural psychology, primary care psychology and the integration of psychotherapy and spirituality.
As a psychologist, Dr. Rackham said he enjoys connecting with individuals.
“I get to see people become more self-reliant,” he said. “Also, patients allow me to be part of their journey toward behavioral changes and becoming more fulfilled with their lives.”
Before coming to PCRMC, Dr. Rackham worked at community health centers in Virginia and Iowa.
As for the best advice Dr. Rackham gives his patients, it’s quite simple: just breathe. “Stressors can make our bodies tense, and breathing helps us slow down and focus,” he said.
