Curriculum Vitae

Areas of Expertise

Dr. Hendren is a Licensed Psychologist in Texas and uses strengths-based approaches to therapy. Dr. Hendren’s research interests include Health Psychology, Positive Psychology, Growth Mindset and Metacognition.

Teaching Philosophy

I believe that learning is a collaborative journey involving the faculty and the students. The classroom provides a space for shared dialogue and discovery, where knowledge is constructed through conversation and reflection. 

Outside Interests

I enjoy assisting students on their path to becoming a Licensed Psychologist. That's why the Community Counseling Services clinic is one of my favorite places to work. Apart from my academic interests, I like to spend quality time with my children and explore the city of San Antonio. During weekends, you can often find me enjoying a good book and a cup of coffee.
