Dr. Alan Stephenson was raised in Mansfield, Texas by hard-working parents. After graduating from Mansfield High School he went on to get his undergraduate degree at Austin College in Sherman, Texas. He felt called to serve in the mental health field and got his Masters and PhD in Psychology at what is now Texas A&M Commerce, which he completed in 1990. He has worked in inpatient facilities, helped set up substance abuse programs within hospitals, supervised masters-level clinicians, and held a private practice throughout his career.
He has worked with a diverse group of clients in an array of settings; clinical and outpatient, over his decades-long psychology career in Texas. In 2003 he decided to form Sonlight Psychological Services on the basis that everyone deserves the help they need to find healing and peace. He has served as Chief Psychologist directly working with clients in nursing homes, their homes, and in his growing private practice office. He is excited to start utilizing telehealth services in order to reach more people in need.
