Welcome to the website! My name is Shawn Wilson and I am a licensed psychologist in Texas. I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University at Albany, SUNY. I have experience working in community mental health, hospital, school, and juvenile justice settings. Clinically, I focus on working with children, adolescents, and parents/caregivers, but I have also worked with adults of various ages.
I created this website to serve mostly as a place to write about important things that I have learned from my studies and clinical work that I think could help other people. I have received amazing training from some incredibly talented and smart individuals, and it is my hope to pass along some of that knowledge to others. I strive to present information, based on research, in a helpful and approachable way. I really appreciate you taking the time to read what this website has to offer.
A little more about me personally, I am a Canadian transplant who has lived in Ontario; Southern California; Vancouver, BC; Chicago; Upstate New York, and now Austin. I live with my husband and our (fat) cat Sage. We have been enjoying the great food and amazing sunny weather that the city has to offer. I am an avid TV show binger, movie watcher, computer game player, book reader, and board game enthusiast. I also love to cook and take walks.
NOTE: Please be advised that the knowledge and suggestions offered here are not meant to replace psychological treatment. In addition, I must be clear that there does not exist any clinical relationship between me and any readers of the site.
