Dr. Ashley Waters was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia. Dr. Waters has 8 years of clinical experience treating clients throughout her training in various settings. She is LGBTQ+ Affirming. She is currently in the process of obtaining her Texas licensure as a clinical psychologist.
Dr. Waters attended Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She then received a Masters and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Auburn University. Her training incorporated several different multidisciplinary outpatient settings with experiences primarily focused on treating college students, veterans, and community mental health. Her clinical experiences as a doctoral student at the Central Alabama Veterans Healthcare System in Tuskegee, Alabama ignited her current passion for treating trauma. She has extensive training and experience in both Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), as well as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). These are gold-standard evidence-based treatments used to address symptoms of PTSD.
Dr. Waters completed an APA-approved pre-doctoral internship and post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio (UTHSCSA). During her internship, Dr. Waters received training in a variety of clinical areas with a focus on evidence-based approaches, providing individual, family/couples, and group psychotherapy to adolescents and adults with a wide range of mood, anxiety, and personality disorders. During her post-doctoral fellowship, Dr. Waters worked in an outpatient community mental health clinic as part of a multidisciplinary team, delivering psychotherapy services to individuals in the community who were recently released from a psychiatric hospital.
Dr. Waters is excited to complete her post-doctoral training and continue serving members of the San Antonio community. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her son, running, exploring new food spots, and traveling.
