About Dr. Claire Jacobs
I completed my B.A. at Rice University with a double major in Psychology and Behavioral Science. I went on to obtain my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Texas Tech University. I have worked in a variety of mental health settings. I enjoyed working for more than 10 years at Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) where I assisted service members and their families. I worked at the San Antonio State Hospital where I gained extensive experience working with patients with severe mental illness. I have spent many years working with patients struggling with a variety of medical problems, including brain injury and strokes, in such settings as University Hospital, Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital, RIOSA, and Spring Hill Rehabilitation Network.
I am the consulting psychologist for the Neuropsychology and Rehab Psychology services at the University Hospital System. In addition, I am Adjunct Clinical Faculty in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio. I have been a faculty member at the Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) Department of Behavioral Medicine, as well as at St. Mary's University.
In addition to my clinical and consulting private practice and university affiliations, I have taken leadership positions in a number of professional organizations. I am past-President of the Bexar County Psychological Association, past-President of the San Antonio Neuropsychological Interest Group, and past-Chair of the Texas Psychological Association Psychopharmacology Special Interest Group. I served as Editor of the Texas Psychological Association's journal, Texas Psychologist, and have served on the boards of the San Antonio Group Psychotherapy Society and the San Antonio Birth Doulas. I have also been a member of the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas.
