Miriam Anderson, PhD.
I began my academic career earning a bachelor’s degree from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota before enrolling in a master’s degree program in marriage and family therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. I eventually earned my doctorate degree in clinical psychology from the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and am licensed as a psychologist by the Oregon Board of Psychologist Examiners.
Assessment: My areas of expertise, training, and interest include learning disability assessment, intellectual and academic giftedness, executive functioning, ADHD, neurocognitive assessment of children and adults, and assessment and diagnostic clarification of complex personality, trauma, mood, and behavioral difficulties. I also assess neurodevelopmental conditions including autism-spectrum disorder.
Therapy: In addition to my psychological assessment experience, I have worked with children, teenagers, families, and adults doing therapy in community mental health agencies, schools, and in private practice. My 27-year career has spanned across several states including California, Massachusetts, Texas, Missouri, and Oregon.
Supervision and Consultation: I have provided individual and group supervision to many doctoral level clinicians seeking licensure. I also have experience participating and leading various consultation groups for master and doctoral level clinicians.
