2016 Psychologist of the Year

Gregory O. Simonsen, Ph.D.

This award is given to a psychologist who is recognized as having made a significant impact on the field of psychology within the state of Texas. 

Dr. Gregory Simonsen showed exceptional leadership as the 2016 President of TPA. While 2016 was not a legislative year, it was a year with much legislative preparation, particularly the preparation and leadership required as psychology would be entering 2017 with the Sunset Review. Dr. Simonsen navigated many important issues with confidence, diplomacy, and grace. His work on the 2017 Legislative Agenda placed TPA in a great starting part for the beginning of this year’s legislative session. 

Dr. Simonsen was fully committed to supporting all the various TPA committees, divisions, and special interest groups. He sacrificed his personal and professional time to advocate for the profession of psychology at the Capitol and made the trip from Dallas to Austin a number of times to testify before Legislators. Dr. Simonsen worked tirelessly to inform the public of the “good psychologists do,” and he made the voice of psychologists brighter and louder during his presidency. He has been an outstanding ambassador for psychology in Texas and relentlessly encourages psychologist to be proud of the profession.
