PSYCHOLOGY TEAM (EVALUATIONS AND COUNSELING)
Sarah Kranz, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist,
Director of Clinical Operations, Internship Director
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, LPA with Independent Practice
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.
