Dr. Tim Hogan wears many hats. He is a
writer, accomplished speaker and licensed psychologist who is
joyfully committed to helping people discover and develop their
unique passion for life. In addition to scholarly psychological
publications, he has written in the area of spiritual direction,
including How to Find the Help You Need,
a guide to psychotherapy and spiritual direction (co-authored
with Dr. Archibald Hart).
Tim’s journey began in Lincoln Park,
Michigan, where he grew up with six older sisters and without a
brother. He completed his undergraduate work at the “Roman
Catholic Disneyland”, the University of Notre Dame. After
several years in Michigan where he worked as a high school
teacher and campus minister, Tim pursued graduate studies at the
“Evangelical Disneyland”, the Graduate School of Psychology at
Fuller Theological Seminary in California.
Tim began his work as a clinical
psychologist at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. While
working directly with both survivors of trauma and children with
diabetes, he began hunting for the secrets of successful
families. How could tragedy transform some families into
masters, while collapsing others into disasters? Tim’s mission
to answer this question landed with two unmistakable
conclusions. First, marriage is the foundation of healthy
families, and healthy families grow healthy kids. Second,
healthy families live from a spiritual core.
Since then Tim has focused his energy on
helping people create and sustain passionate marriages and
healthy families, and helping parents cultivate healthy passion
in their children. He frequently teaches in the area of human
sexuality. He blends the insights of Christ-centered
spirituality with his light-hearted sense of humor to teach
proven strategies to discover, embrace, and redeem sexual
Tim currently lives in Plymouth, Michigan
with his best friend and wife, Karen, and their three children.
He enjoys snuggling and reading a good book with his daughters,
fishing on the Charlevoix Pier with his son, and running with
his Old English Sheepdog, Teddy.
