Clinical Psychologist serving tweens, teens and adults
Sarah H. Kramer, Ph.D.
My new office location is in the Yeager Office Suites, located at 6401 W. Eldorado Pkwy, Suite 231 in McKinney, Texas. Parking is available on all sides of the building. To access the Yeager building, turn south at the light at Eldorado and Hudson Crossing. Drive past the Sonic property and take the next left into an unmarked drive; this will lead you to the front of the Yeager Building. Thus, this property does NOT front directly on Eldorado Pkwy.
Important: To preserve your privacy and that of other clients, please choose a seat in one of the first floor waiting areas and wait for me to come downstairs to escort you to my office. You do not need to check in with any building staff members. If you have signed the texting consent form on this website, you may send a text to my business cell, 469/708-2997, telling me of your arrival. A coffee bar and snacks (for purchase) are located to the right of the reception desk while you wait, and this building does have an elevator. I think we will all enjoy this great location, which is situated between Ridge Rd. and the John & Judy Gay Public Library!

I am happy to accept multiple forms of payment, including cash (exact), check, credit cards and medical savings account cards. If you choose to use insurance, my office will help you determine your benefits and file claims on your behalf.

IMPORTANT NOTE:Before your first visit, please contact my billing assistant Judy Moubray to provide your personal and insurance details. This will allow her to check your benefits to ensure that your expectations about out- of-pocket costs are accurate. Some insurance companies use a separate insurer for mental health benefits--do not be caught unaware, or you may be responsible for the full cost of your visits!
Judy is available for insurance verification between 9 am - 12 pm (noon), Mondays through Fridays. Her contact number is: 940/782-9827. Please be sure to call at least a week in advance of your first appointment to provide time to obtain this information and communicate it to you.
You want your life to change in a positive direction, but no one gives you a manual for 'adulting' or for parenting. Therapy can be the next best thing! With a seasoned, approachable, and honest professional at your side, you have the potential to find qualities in yourself that you have not previously recognized. And even more importantly, you can learn new ways of managing your emotions, process old wounds, and gain perspective and even wisdom. I have worked with clients of all ages for over 25 years. I bring patience, insight, a wide range of experience and the deep appreciation for the privilege of joining you or your child on your new journey.
I am a native of Wichita Falls, Texas, where I was a National Merit Scholar in high school. I was awarded the Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. At Harvard University I earned an Ed.M in Counseling and Consulting Psychology. My M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Clinical Psychology were granted by Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. I have been a fully licensed psychologist, first in Alabama and now in Texas, for 29 years. My work has been almost exclusively in either group private practices (composed of multiple kinds of providers) or in solo private practice, as I am today.

I use research-based approaches and clinical experience, applied with care and concern for the whole person, to work towards mutually-determined goals.
Never a 'one size fits all' therapy. Free 15 minute phone consultation prior to first visit.
