Erika Epps Bio

Erika Epps, Psy.D., LCDC
Psychologist I, Supervised by James Deegear, Ph.D., ABPP

Personal Statement:
As a new psychologist at Texas A&M University (Go AGGIES), I am truly honored and humbled to have this opportunity to walk alongside our college students in these formidable years of self, interpersonal, and relational development. This journey will incorporate several years of academic and personal study, which may initiate the desire for internal reflection and self-dialogue.
 
My ideology of therapy is that therapy provides an individual with a safe and judgmental free opportunity to truly reflect upon their inner processes without fear, guilt, and shame; it is a place for growth, transformation, and self-empowerment.
 
As a personal note, in my free time, I am a die-hard Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Rockets sports fan. I enjoy watching and attending professional sporting events. Additionally, I love spending time with my daughter doing various kinds of activities like shopping, watching movies, amusement parks, arcades, and driving road trips.
