About Dr. Gina Hudnall
Dr. Gina Hudnall, Director
My treatment approach is based on over 15 years of providing testing and treatment services.
In every case, my primary treatment goal is to help my clients develop the necessary skills--both thinking and behaving-- to improve their health, academic performance, day-to-day functioning and sense of well-being and self-efficacy. I do not fix my clients but focus all my efforts toward helping them to fix or better manage their problems themselves. This is done through fostering client strengths.
My clinical and testing experiences at Baylor College of Medicine, Quentin Mease General Hospital, and Parkview Adolescent Psychological Services have made me proficient in providing cognitive behavioral treatment, assessing academic placement, identifying deveopmental, personality and dementia related disorders, and treating depression and anxiety.
I am uniquely trained to provide both an excellent assessment of problems and treatment that incorporates SOLUTIONS! Both of these skills help me to work collaboratively with clients to provide evidenced based and fully informed services.
