Herman has worked in the mental health field for over ten years. He has worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings as a licensed psychological associate. Herman was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott in 2018 to serve on the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists as a board member. He is an associate member of the American Psychological Association and a member of the Texas Association of Psychological Associates. Herman received a Bachelor of Science in psychology from Texas A&M University and a Master of Arts in clinical psychology from the University of Houston-Clear Lake.
Herman provides psychotherapy and comprehensive psychological evaluations, under the supervision of Dr. Melissa Moore, in areas such as depressive disorders, bipolar disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, and ADHD. Herman treats both adolescents and adults (ages 12-60) with a particular interest in working with older adolescents and young adults who have difficulty navigating the complexities of life whether it be with academics, relationships, careers, or other related concerns.
Herman’s approach to treatment is “mentalization-based” which involves an emphasis on trying to understand the thoughts and feelings of the other people in one’s life in an effort to foster greater empathy and understanding in one’s close relationships. When working with a patient, Herman believes it is important to use not only knowledge gained from coursework and training, but from his own personal experiences as well.
Herman is a life-long Houstonian and a huge fan of the Houston Rockets, Astros, and Texans as well as his Texas A&M Aggies. He loves his 13-year-old dog Alfie and is always happy to exchange dog pictures with his patients. Herman is a true believer in the positive and healing nature of a canine companion.
