ABOUT THE DOCTOR
Dr. Ward is a nationally recognized expert in brain function and how that affects mood, work, and behavior. She was born in Washington DC but quickly moved throughout the world, eventually landing and being raised in California from childhood. Academically, she earned a BS from California Polytechnic State University, SLO; an MEd from City University, Bellevue, WA; and both an MA and PsyD in Clinical Psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology/Argosy, Washington DC. Additionally, she went on to complete a two-year Houston Guideline fellowship in neuropsychology with an additional focus on forensics.
In 2010, Dr. Ward began her private practice in the Virginia / Washington DC area. There, she worked on private cases and consulted at Snowden Community Psychiatric Hospital, Spotyslvania Hospital, Mary Washington Medical Center, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital, and numerous assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. She also was frequently contracted with multiple county courts for forensic evaluations as well as multiple workman’s compensation agencies. With that experience, she became the Clinical and Training Director at Neuropsychology & Complementary Medicine and Central Coast Neuropsychology, where her team created a psychology/neuropsychology training program including externships, doctoral practicum, pre-doctoral clinical psychology internships, and two-year Houston Guideline approved post-doctoral fellowships in neuropsychology. Dr. Ward has been adjunct faculty at various colleges and universities teaching cognitive psychology, psychopharmacology, research, statistics, psychological assessment, biological bases of behavior, and biological psychology.
