Sasshey, Psychometrician

I am originally from El Paso. I have two sons and a fiancé. I have a M.S. from the University of Texas at Tyler. I plan on pursuing licensure as a Licensed Psychological Associate and hope to serve underserved populations, such as the Hispanic community. The areas that interest me include neuropsychological/memory tests, autism spectrum disorder, and trauma. Prior to joining the practice, I was a graduate teaching assistant for cognitive and physiological psychology classes at the university and a contracted translator for a children's therapy company. Much of my free time is spent with family and friends.

Lara Jane, Counseling Intern

I am originally from Arlington, TX. I currently occupy several life stages and roles. I have been married to my husband, Marshall, for 24 years. We have 4 biological children (ages 22, 20, 18, and 16) and are in the process of adopting our 2-year-old foster son. I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a BS in Family and Consumer Sciences, focusing on Human Development and Family Studies. I am pursuing an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Colorado Christian University. In addition to my university coursework, I have training in Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) and Play Therapy.

I hope to become an LPC and serve children (age 3+) and adults. I am committed to providing individualized care to meet each client’s unique needs. My clinical focus includes client development, early experiences, trauma, and attachment as significant contributing factors to relationships and mental health. Regardless of age, I believe each client is worthy and capable of making decisions and contributions to their therapy. This belief drives my commitment to develop therapeutic relationships that honor clients as equals.

Rachel, Counseling Intern

Hello all! My name is Rachel Dawson and I am currently a UT Tyler master's student studying clinical psychology. I will graduate in Summer of 2023 and am very excited to start working with clients part time. I plan on moving back to Dallas once I graduate and wish to work at a CAC when I graduate. I went to Louisiana State University, LSU, for my undergraduate career and loved the new culture and atmosphere I experienced while being there. I am still a die hard LSU fan and love watching and cheering the tigers on in their sports. In my free time, I love watching movies or tv shows, especially the office. I am a coffee fanatic and even named my 2 cats, mocha and latte!
