Dr. Anderson earned her doctorate from the SDSU/UCSD Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology where she received extensive training in developmental neuropsychology. From her work with atypically-developing children and adults, she developed a passion for working with youth, couples and families. Raising confident, independent children begins with healthy family communication. Dr. Anderson applies her Gottman training to all family members and teaches strategies to improve communication and make all relationships more meaningful. Using cognitive-behavioral strategies, Dr. Anderson also works extensively with youth and adults to help identify your personal lifetraps that keeps you unfulfilled. Married for more than 25 years, and a mother to 4 children, Dr. Anderson understands the myriad of pressures that youth face, the challenges that parents grapple with, and the changes that couples endure throughout the lifespan.
