(The Pauquette Center submission) The Pauquette Center for Psychological Services has named a new Executive Director. On January 1, 2021, Dr. Lesley Chapin succeeded Dr. Thomas Hayes, who had held that position for the past 25 years. Dr. Chapin took over the day-to-day operations at the same time the Pauquette center opened its 8th clinic in Whitewater.
In 2020, the Portage based psychological services company began operations in Madison, and expanded consultation and training services throughout the state. Dr. Chapin was instrumental in those projects, and was the logical choice to succeed Dr. Hayes. Dr. Chapin continues active work as a psychologist, with her home office in the Madison clinic. Dr. Hayes will continue to work out of the Portage office, and continues in his role as President and Chief Executive Officer.
The Pauquette Centers for Psychological Services has operated continuously since 1965. It operates clinics in Portage, Columbus, Baraboo, Sauk Prairie, Reedsburg, Richland Center, Madison, and Whitewater at the Innovation Center. There are currently over 40 professional staff that provide an array of psychological, psychotherapy and counseling services, serving primarily rural Wisconsin.
