Dr. Puckett is a child psychologist who specializes in therapy and assessment services for children, adolescents, and young adults. In addition to working at a large children's hospital and university, Dr. Puckett owns and operates a private counseling and testing practice in the North Dallas area, Align Psychological Services, PLLC. Through her work, it is her mission to help patients to gain more control over their own minds, bodies, and emotion.
Dr. Puckett provides high quality, comprehensive testing services for children, teenagers, and college students to help them identify a diagnosis (such as Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Mood Disorder, etc.) and obtain accommodations and services in their schools. Dr. Puckett's practice employs the most up-to-date testing materials, and provides a quick turn-around of comprehensive testing reports to families and schools. In addition to being a Licensed Psychologist, Dr. Puckett is also a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology, which means that she knows what types of accommodations are relevant and feasible in school systems, and her reports can be well trusted by schools and colleges.
Dr. Puckett provides individual and family-focused counseling and therapeutic treatment to kids, teens, and college students. She is a pediatric psychologist by trade and training, and has particular expertise in treating patients with chronic or complex medical illnesses, chronic pain conditions, toileting problems, and anxiety issues. She also treats general mood and behavioral concerns that children and families may have (e.g., behavioral management, depression, divorce coping, parenting support, etc.). Dr. Puckett aims to help patients to gain understanding and control over how their minds, bodies, and emotions interact, and most often treats patients using cognitive-behavioral, bio-behavioral, and self hypnosis treatment approaches. However, it is her belief that each patient deserves a uniquely-tailored treatment plan rather than a one size fits all approach.
