About Us

MEET THE SPECTRA TEAM

TEAM OF SPECIALISTS

Spectra Therapies & Evaluation Center is a multidisciplinary clinic offering comprehensive services for young children through late adulthood. Our providers have training from and/or previously worked at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas (UTSW), the Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD), Children’s Medical Center of Dallas (CMC), Center for BrainHealth (CBH), and Our Children’s House at Baylor, Easter Seals.  Additionally, providers have taught or provided comprehensive psychoeducational and autism evaluations at various independent school districts, and currently conduct research and teaching services with students.

INDEPENDENT PROVIDERS

Each independent provider is part of a group of independent mental health professionals, under the name Spectra Therapies. This group is an association of independently practicing professionals which share certain expenses and administrative functions. While the members share a name and office space, each provider is completely independent in providing you with clinical services, and that provider alone is fully responsible for those services. Each provider at Spectra Therapies has different qualifications, degrees, and offers a variety of services.

STUDENTS, including LPC-Interns, are supervised and NOT independent providers.
