Arien Ward's bio

This content was provided by Arien Ward "I have been a licensed Clinical Psychologist since March of 2006. Born and raised in Shreveport, I graduated from Evangel Christian Academy and earned a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology from Louisiana State University in Shreveport in December of 1999. I began my career as a Psychological Technician at Willis Knighton Health System's Behavioral Medicine Unit and realized how much hard work and dedication it takes to be a direct care worker. In August of 2000, I moved to Springfield, Missouri to attend Forest Institute of Professional Psychology, where I graduated with my Masters in Clinical Psychology in April of 2002. Subsequently, I completed Forest's post-graduate program in Marriage and Family Therapy. A pre-doctoral internship led me to West Palm Beach, Florida's Division of Youth Affairs where I treated at risk adolescents, as well as children with a variety of behavioral issues. I also performed psychological testing and conducted individual and family therapy. After completing my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Forest Institute in October of 2004, I was able to move home to the Shreveport-Bossier to be near my family, where I completed a year of supervised post-doctoral practice at Northwest Supports and Services Center in Bossier City. I passed the Examination for the Professional Practice in Psychology and was licensed in Louisiana from the Board of Examiners of Psychologists on March 17, 2006 as a Clinical Psychologist and continued working at Northwest as the Psychology Director. While there, I trained Masters level clinicians in diagnostics, psychological testing, and treatment planning for people with severe to profound intellectual disabilities with co-morbid psychiatric, behavioral and medical conditions. I'm thrilled to have come full circle with my psychological training and to have the opportunity to work again at Willis-Knighton. I plan to use my clinical experience in private practice to help people enhance their health and well-being. "
