Dr. Temille Porter grew up in Southern California and graduated from San Diego State University with a B.A. in Psychology. She earned her Masters and Doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology, San Diego.
Dr. Porter’s work experience in clinical psychology spans from serving in school, community clinic, and youth incarceration settings before settling into positions within higher education. In 2009, she accepted a call to the Middle East to set up a counseling center at a graduate school. It was Temille’s continued prayer to walk worthy of her calling (to honor God and serve people), in the most authentic and congruent ways possible, ideally integrating psychology and spirituality.
On May 8, 2015, Dr. Porter fought the good fight and won her battle. She will be a beloved member of our Hope4Hollywood group and team.
In her memory, Hope4Hollywood has established the Dr. Temille Porter Phenomenal Woman Award, given to women who embody Temille’s light, strength and courage.
