post-doctoral resident in counseling psychology
supervised by kelleigh head, psyd
Dr. Asra Khan received her doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman’s University. Her academic and professional training uses multiple theoretical orientations, and she affirms a Family Systems and a Cognitive-Behavioral orientation balance within her holistic emphasis on diversity and multicultural-related concerns. Additionally, training at the University of Massachusetts Center for Counseling and Academic Development further enriched her understanding of neuropsychological assessment used in diagnosing ADHD and other learning differences and abilities.
In addition to serving as an adjunct college professor, the previous ten years fostered her passion in the non-profit communities where she provides service and expertise of training and counseling to those in need. Bringing together people of diverse faiths for dialogue, celebration, and increased understanding is paramount. She proudly serves as a board member and is the presiding chair-elect of the Multicultural Alliance of Texas.
Dr. Khan understands that reaching out to someone when they are in need can be a daunting experience. She understands and respects this vulnerability, and therefore demonstrates acceptance, genuineness, and resolution as a cornerstone of her practice. Having lived in the continents of Asia, Europe, and North America, she is well acquainted with balancing both culturally and religiously diverse environments, and she understands the challenges and opportunities that this identity expresses. She feels that connecting with another person provides the opportunity to share on a much deeper level. This deeper level often generates profound efficacy to the client experience and relationship.
