The month of January has been a rewarding month for Dr. Carly McCord, Clinical Director of the Telehealth Counseling Clinic. Earlier this month, Carly passed her oral exam and received her licensure as a Licensed Psychologist. In regards to passing her exam, Carly exclaimed, “ I couldn’t be happier to see my training as a Counseling Psychologist come full circle and I believe completing this step will ultimately strengthen the TCC and its reputation in the community.” The oral examination was the final component of several requirements by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists to become a licensed psychologist. Congratulations, Dr. McCord!
In other good news, Carly’s dissertation entitled “Trajectories of Happiness 5 Years Following Medical Discharge for Traumatic Disability” has been published in the January 2015 volume of the Journal of Happiness Studies.
