Dr. Steven Gomez, PhD, LCSW-Supervisor
Howdy! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and board-approved supervisor for social work in Texas. I am also a medical anthropologist. I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology (Texas A&M University, 2003) and master’s degrees in social work (University of Oklahoma, 2011), psychology (University of North Texas, 2007) and applied anthropology (University of North Texas, 2007). I completed my education with a PhD in anthropology (University of Oklahoma, 2016, sociocultural and medical emphases). I enjoy direct clinical practice with clients, teaching, and conducting research on health disparities and the relationships between chronic medical disease and mental health.
I have over 10 years of experience providing mental health care to a wide variety of populations, from children to adults. I’m able to utilize an array of different psychotherapy approaches, specific techniques, and interventions, from modalities like cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, and by harnessing the corrective, healing power of the interpersonal process in psychotherapy.
I enjoy getting to know my clients and finding a style and approach that works best for their needs during our time together in the therapeutic relationship. Participating in psychotherapy is an excellent way to pause a busy life, engage in healthy self-reflection and critical thinking about your own processes, and make new mental connections for better ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. Both you and your loved ones will benefit from your improvements. I look forward to meeting you and working with you!
