Elena Mikalsen, Ph.D.

As a Pediatric Psychologist in Texas, I have been privileged to work in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. My current position involves an academic appointment at Baylor College of Medicine, a clinical appointment as a Pediatric Psychologist for Baylor College of Medicine and an Administrative appointment as a Section Chief of Psychology at The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, the first free-standing children’s hospital in San Antonio. My time is equally split among clinical work, administrative duties, and advocacy in an area of Texas that is very culturally diverse, but also very underserved when it comes to mental health.  READ MORE
