Holly (My Hao) Pantuso, MA

Holly obtained her BS in Biology and BA in Music from Regis University in Denver, CO. She graduated Pre-Med, but ultimately had a love for psychology and often contemplated a world where mental health held the same gravity as physical health. She holds an MA in Clinical Psychology and is working on her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Psychophysiology from Saybrook University, a humanistic graduate school based in Pasadena, CA. She hopes to graduate in August 2021. 

Holly has immense experience in trauma psychology; she has worked with survivors of sex trafficking, abused and neglected children, and at-risk/homeless youth. She is currently a pre-doctoral psychology intern under the primary supervision of Dr. Richard Connell, Ph.D. at Connell & Associates, and is also a part of a training consortium with DFW Psychological & Consulting Services in the Fort Worth area. 

Though she is well-versed in trauma studies, Holly profoundly appreciates the intersectionality between the body and the mind. She approaches assessment and treatment planning through a holistic lens that assimilates all facets of the human experience through the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model. She believes that individuals are the experts of their own lives and must take ownership of themselves before true change can be made. It is through the collaboration of the client and clinician that allows an authentic and supportive healing space. 

    TESTIMONIALS

    CASSANDRA W.

    Awesome clinicians working here. I was able to get my child's diagnosis so I can get him services. Early diagnosis is the the key. My son is autistic and has ADHD as well as other health issues. Kisd was able to get my son the services he needed based on his diagnosis he received at this office. My son is now 6 and has made a 200 percent improvement due to reviewing intervention early on.

    Dr. Connell was very easy to talk to. He listen to all of my concerns and addressed them. Him and his staff made me feel comfortable. I have been waiting for over a year for a appointment at scott and white. As soon as I called his office I received a appointment right away.

    Dr. Connell's office has been professional and courteous. My husband and I like how well he listens to our concerns and how we explain ourselves about our daughter. We are hopeful on this new path with his help with our daughter.

    HEIDI P.

    Doctor Connell and his staff went out of their way to assist my daughter and I with the process of obtaining a diagnosis (report) and submitting referrals for the care she needed. This was an acutely difficult period for both she and I, as it was her first diagnosis and testing experience. All around they were patient, kind, thorough and efficient. Highly Recommended!

    Very friendly staff, enjoyable office area and the staff did a wonderful job helping us learn more. Dr. Connell is good and explains things in plain English and not medical terms. Felt very re-assured we will get the help we need for our family.

    When you walk into the office you are welcomed right away. You don't have to wait.for someone. It doesn't have the feeling of most Dr.'s offices. It has a relaxing feel which is important for the children.
