My name is Jonathan C. Blassingame III, PhD

I’m Dr. Blassingame, a licensed clinical psychologist in Houston, TX and an assistant professor at Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Baylor College of Medicine. I am trained in the assessment, diagnosis, and evidence-based treatment of psychological issues in adults. 

About Me.

My primary treatment orientation is dialectical behavioral therapy. I have completed intensive training in assessment, diagnosis and evidence-based treatments for trauma, mood disorders, psychotic-spectrum disorders, personality disorders, and suicidality. Additionally, I have completed my clinical training at Emory School of Medicine’s Department of Psychiatry, Louis A. Faillace, MD Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, and at Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Baylor College of Medicine. My Ph.D. and pre-doctoral internship were in clinical psychology and both programs were accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA).
