About Us

A little something about us.

Rose City Therapeutics, located in Tualatin, OR, was formed by Jim and Jams [formerly Jen] Markovics. We work in close consultation with Dr. Carol Markovics, who is Jim’s wife and Jams' mother, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with Play 2 Grow group with whom we all share a common goal of coordinated care. In addition to Dr. Carol, two Licensed Occupational Therapists and a Licensed Language Therapist round out the complement of providers at Play 2 Grow Developmental Therapy. We currently share office space with our colleagues at Play 2 Grow.
Dr. Jim retired in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Jams is currently seeking other practitioners to welcome into our clinic who either are trained or are interested in training in neurofeedback who have a degree in a qualified healthcare field. If you are or you know anyone who may be interested, please contact us or share our contact with them. We are eager to add more devoted practitioners to our clinic!
