Directors

Timothy Elliott, PhD, ABPP, Executive Director — Dr. Elliott has dedicated his career to studying the adjustment and well-being of people with disabling health conditions who experience disparities in access, treatment provision, and therapeutic outcomes from existing health care delivery systems. To alleviate mental health disparities, he has used his expertise to provide psychological services through long-distance technologies in the underserved Brazos Valley and other rural communities. Dr. Elliott is also responsible for recruiting, training, and preparing bilingual doctoral students from the APA-accredited counseling psychology program for graduate assistant positions at the Telehealth Counseling Clinic.

As the first counselor to deliver telehealth counseling through the TCC in 2009, she has expertise in providing and evaluating high-quality telehealth services. Her work with telehealth in rural Brazos county has given her a strong understanding of the mental health needs in rural areas and how to collaborate with rural communities in order to reduce mental health disparities.
