Outstanding Contribution to Public Service

Allison Sallee, Ph.D.

This award recognizes a psychologist who has made outstanding contributions on behalf of the public. 

Dr. Allison Sallee is a child and family psychologist in Austin who saw a disparity in the community for children and adolescents to access quality mental health care. To help close this gap Dr. Sallee, in 2010, saved up personal funds to lease office space and open a nonprofit mental health center, C2 Change (formally known as Tejas Family Guidance Center.) C2 promotes early intervention, diagnosis, and treatment, which is extremely important given that 1 in 5 children experiences a mental disorder in a given year. C2 provides access to psychotherapy as well as psychological and neuropsychological evaluations to individuals and families regardless of ability to pay, and more than 96% of clients qualify for a sliding scale fee.  

In addition to providing access to services, Dr. Sallee saw a huge gap regarding psychology training in Austin. In the short six years that the center has been open, it has become one of the most competitive practicum sites in the area. The training program that Dr. Sallee has developed is extensive and currently holds eight practicum positions, six of which are for doctoral psychology students. Dr. Sallee is a psychologist who has dedicated herself to public service both by creating a place where those in need can go and by developing future clinicians who are highly skilled and well trained. She embodies the Outstanding Contribution to Public Service award in which a psychologist’s efforts significantly impact the public for the better.
