My name is Asha Unni, and I am a practicum doctoral student, working towards my PhD in School Psychology at Texas A&M University. During my time at Texas A&M, I received my Master of Education degree with an emphasis in Educational Psychology. I have had experience providing services for families, and children between the ages of 5 and 15, for concerns related to anxiety, depression, self-esteem, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), social skills training, adjustment related to divorce, anger management, and parenting skills. My experience working as the service coordinator of the Texas A&M Counseling and Assessment Clinic has also provided me with opportunities to work with clients before they begin therapy and to help triage services. Additionally, before entering the doctoral program, I worked as a mentor for children in elementary and high school through Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and a program to encourage high school completion, respectively.
Throughout my professional career, I have worked with clients who have a range of diversity in their individual cultures, religions, beliefs, goals, and experiences. Considering clients' unique backgrounds and strengths, my goal is to collaborate to develop individualized treatment plans to meet their needs, using various therapeutic approaches.
