About Dr. Wilson
I am a counseling psychologist who is licensed in the state of Texas (no. 36135) and practices in the Dallas area. I received my M.S. in Community Psychology from Lamar University in 2003. I then went on to work at a juvenile correctional facility for several years assisting youth offenders with chemical dependency concerns and their families before furthering my education. I earned my Ph.D. from the University of North Texas Counseling Psychology Program, an American Psychological Association (APA)-accredited program.
I provide treatment in all modalities (individual, couple, group, and family therapy) to adolescents and adults across the lifespan. In addition to providing numerous evidence-based (i.e., scientifically supported) psychotherapies to address a broad range of emotional and relational difficulties, I also specialize in:
- Couple and family therapy
- Infertility and reproductive trauma
- Pregnancy and postpartum anxiety and depression
- The treatment of trauma
- Severe difficulties with emotion regulation
I advanced my expertise in these areas through my predoctoral training experiences at the University of North Texas Psychology Clinic, the UNT Counseling and Testing Center, and the Dallas VA Medical Center. Moreover, I completed my Predoctoral Internship and Postdoctoral Fellowship at the VA North Texas Healthcare System. Before going into private practice, I worked as a staff psychologist serving Veterans at the Dallas VA Medical Center in an outpatient mental health clinic. My job duties included conducting psychological assessments, counseling Veterans and their partners/spouses/families, supervising trainees, and teaching. I continue to serve military service members, Veterans, and their families through the Give An Hour organization, a non-profit organization which provides free mental health services for U.S. military personnel and their families affected by the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. For more information about this organization please visit their website at http://www.giveanhour.org.
I became interested in infertility when I experienced my own unexpected difficulties starting a family; giving me a deep personal understanding of fertility struggles. I understand the emotional, medical, psychological and relational aspects of infertility and pregnancy. I am a professional member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the International Marce Society for Perinatal Mental Health and RESOLVE, the National Infertility Association.
I am also a member of the American Psychological Association, Texas Psychological Association, and the Dallas Psychological Association.
I have been married for almost two decades and I have two children, two Pembroke Welch Corgis and a lovable Labradoodle. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching HGTV and most televised cooking programs, and spending time with family and friends.
