Clifton D. Garner, Sr, PsyD, LCMHCA

Clifton Garner, Sr., PsyD., is a native of North Carolina, originally from Roanoke Rapids.  He
earned his bachelor’s degree in Social Psychology from Park University, Parkville, MS. He has a
master’s degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology,
both from Capella University, Minneapolis, MN.  Dr. Garner has received specialized training in
psychological diagnostic assessment (testing) and therapeutic interventions, including Cognitive
Behavioral, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and Solution-Focused Therapy in the
private practice setting.
Dr. Garner graduated from Weldon High School in Weldon, North Carolina and
immediately pursued a career in the United States Air Force that spanned 21 years. During his
military career he has lived and worked in South Korea, North Carolina, Italy, Saudi Arabia,
Germany, and Texas.  Dr. Garner’s adventures instilled a love of travel and cultural
diversity.  Currently, he considers San Antonio, Texas, his second home after spending so many
years there.
Among Dr. Garner’s other interests, he is an avid reader, movie-goer, self-proclaimed foodie and
life-long student. He enjoys cooking and exploring new food types.  However, his love for food
is equalized through calisthenics and weight training, which includes the occasional yoga class in
as much as his varied schedule will allow. When he is not cooking or working out, he appreciates
taking candid photographs in outdoor settings as a way to freeze time and capture the beautiful
realities of life.  Dr. Garner believes that it is important to build a life that you will love, and he
consciously works to grow his own life with measured objectives while spending time with his
family, friends, and being surrounding by the sounds of other people growing their happy lives
as well.

Dr. Garner’s professional interests include cultural and religious adaptations of
clinical interventions in support of children, adolescent, and adult populations. He hopes to join
his love of learning with teaching psychology to others that share his passion for the field.
