Dr. Elias Barghash is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in short-term and long-term individual psychotherapy for adults. He takes a collaborative, relationship-based approach to treatment that blends contemporary psychodynamic therapy with solution-focused work. He has had specialized training in grief-focused psychotherapy, end-of-life care, as well as existential issues related to lose, life transitions, and living with life-limiting medical diagnoses. He prioritizes the importance of diversity, culture, identity, and inclusivity in working with patients.
After earning his master’s from New York University, he studied clinical psychology at The George Washington University in Washington, DC, where he earned his doctorate. He later moved to Texas, where he worked at Baylor University, and then Baylor Scott & White Health as a staff psychologist. He currently lives in San Antonio, where he treats patients both in-person and via telehealth.
In addition to providing individual psychotherapy, Dr. Barghash also provides comprehensive psychological evaluations for individuals seeking to obtain diagnostic clarity about their mental health (including ADHD evaluations), as well as patients seeking to undergo a bariatric, transplant, or spinal cord stimulator surgery.
