About me

Dr. Matthew Kivel is a licensed pediatric psychologist at OHSU’s Child Development and Rehabilitation Center

Dr. Kivel is an expert in helping families understand their child’s strengths and areas of growth. He provides assessments to help families understand if autism or other neurodevelopmental differences are contributing to any of their child’s struggles. He also helps children and teens with chronic medical conditions understand how to better manage these conditions to allow them to do the things that they want to do.  

In his spare time, Dr. Kivel enjoys cooking, listening to music, traveling and hiking. He also enjoys exploring Portland and trying to find the best coffee shops in the city.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
