About Me

Hi! My Name is Sandra Winans. I am a Licensed Psychologist with a license issued by the state of Texas and I have a Ph.D. in counseling psychology. I have a total of 10 years of doctoral-level counseling experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including academic issues, anxiety, family conflicts, social issues, self-esteem concerns and parenting issues. In addition to being a Licensed Psychologist, I am also a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology and have extensive experience working with children in schools. In the school setting, I have helped students with academic and emotional issues, social skills, test anxiety and have also worked with students who have been diagnosed with Autism.

I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Texas in 1993, a Master of Science degree in Early Childhood Disorders from UT Dallas in 1995, and a Doctorate in Counseling Psychology from the University of Houston in 2002.

My treatment approach is set on the idea of building a therapeutic relationship. This is accomplished by establishing trust and rapport between myself and my client. Once rapport is established, some of the therapeutic approaches I use include solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness. In our sessions, we will focus on positive attributes/strengths and your abilities/skills to help you achieve your goals.

Whether your teenager is seeking change for a more confident and joyful life, or just needs a non judgmental ear to listen, I am here to support and encourage them!
