Julia Becker, Psy.D.; Licensed Psychologist

I am a licensed psychologist with a doctorate in clinical psychology from Baylor University. I have extensive clinical experience providing individual counseling to adults, children, and adolescents. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked in the university counseling centers at Baylor University, University of California Santa Cruz, and Sam Houston State University. I also worked at the Methodist Children's Home and the Waco school district, providing counseling and testing to students.

I specialize in treating individuals with anxiety disorders. My treatment addresses the physical, emotional, and cognitive symptoms of anxiety. I have also received extensive training in multicultural counseling, and I welcome clients from all ethnicities and walks of life.

I also have experience with career and personality assessment, and I often use assessments as part of the counseling process. I also conduct psychological assessments for patients interested in weight loss surgery, as well as pre and post surgical counseling. In addition to psychological assessment, I conduct IQ and learning disability evaluations. Please see testing for more information about this process.

In addition to my clinical experience, I have provided teaching and supervision to doctoral level psychology students. I have also provided numerous outreach and educational workshops on various subjects such as stress management, sexual assault, and psychological illness.
