Sarah Kranz, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist, CAS 

Chief Executive Officer, Director of Internship Training

I have lived in Longview, TX since 1994. My husband and I have five children (ages infant-21). I am a Licensed Psychologist (Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists). I have a B.S. in Psychology from LeTourneau University, a M.S. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Texas at Tyler, and a Ph.D. from NorthCentral University. 

My areas of expertise include clinical psychology, child and adolescent development, and trauma-informed care. I provide both evaluation and counseling services.

 

I spent 12 years out of the traditional workforce to stay home with our children. My family is actively involved in the community and our church. Our children are involved in band, drum line, working with individuals with special needs, UIL, gymnastics, and competitive cheerleading. Our children are by far my greatest accomplishment and greatest joy.

 

LeAnne McClure-Oliver, Licensed Psychological Associate with Independent Practice, ACAS

As a Licensed Psychological Associate (with independent practice), I have several years experience conducting evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults. I also provide counseling services. I retired from public education in 2011, after a combined total of 31 years as a special education teacher (all levels), school guidance counselor, special education counselor, behavior specialist, and Autism consultant. In addition to working with young people, I also have 2 years experience working in a geriatric-psychiatric intensive outpatient program, working with senior adults with dementia. I began psychology doctoral studies in 2004, with a focus in High Functioning Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. While life circumstances happened and I was not able to complete my doctorate, I treasure the knowledge and experience I gained on that journey. I have been married for 30 years. We have 4 adult children, 2 of whom are adopted, and 8 grandchildren.

Emily Holloway, Licensed Psychological Associate 

(under the Supervision of Dr. Sarah Kranz)

I am a native East Texan, born and raised in Longview.  My husband and I have four children, one of whom was adopted out of foster care.  It was during our training to become foster parents that I felt compelled to learn all I could about the impact of trauma on children and their families. I taught in Longview ISD for 10 years before returning to school to obtain a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from UT Tyler.  As a Licensed Psychological Associate, I have the privilege of working with clients from all walks of life.  It is my objective to help each one live a more complete and fulfilling life.

Curtis Roscoe, Licensed Psychological Associate

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I completed schooling for a master’s degree in clinical psychology at the University of Texas at Tyler. While I am licensed as a LPA, I work primarily as a counselor. I was drawn to this field by an interest in understanding the mind and a desire to contribute in the ways that I can to the wellbeing of others. In my free time, I enjoy taking walks, listening to music, writing, and getting to know others.
