arlisa hurd, ms

doctoral student in clinical psychology

supervised by sandra davis, psyd

I am a doctoral practicum student, working towards my PhD in Psychology, specialization in Clinical Psychology, at Walden University. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Sociology/Biology, minor in Physical Education, from Paul Quinn College, and also earned a Master of Science in Psychology from the University of Phoenix.  I am committed to helping clients fulfill their potential and lead happier and healthier lives.

Throughout my professional career, I have worked for Nexus Recovery Center, Lakes Regional MHMR Center, Terrell State Hospital, Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Volunteers of America, Senior Living and Memory Care, and Berry Family Services.

I am conscious of sensitivities to multicultural issues within counseling and society, and highly value the impact multicultural and societal difficulties play in a person or family’s mental well-being.  Each person’s treatment will focus on identifying the underlying causes that have served as the origin of their current stressors and situations.

My objective is to help individuals and their families, and teach them to be advocates for themselves and their families, while also serving as an advocate for their communities myself.
