Dr. Mott's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Mott "I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Behavioral Medicine from the University of California, San Diego and San Diego State University in 1991. I have licenses to practice psychology in Nebraska and California. I have worked clinically with children and families in a variety of settings, including teen substance abuse research, therapeutic foster care, youth group homes, educational settings, and private practice. My theoretical orientation is behavioral and cognitive-behavioral. I also have more than 25 years of experience conducting cognitive, academic, behavioral, emotional, and neuropsychological assessments with children and teens. For 15 years, I worked full-time as the Psychologist at a Catholic elementary and middle school while also maintaining a part-time private practice. I began full-time private practice in August of 2014, where I provide assessment and counseling with children and adolescents; consultation services with parents; educational planning and support with schools; and other services designed to help each child achieve his or her full potential. I incorporate my Christian values into counseling when appropriate and requested by her clients. I am a past and/or current member of the following professional organizations: American Psychological Association (APA); Association of Educational Therapists (AET, Allied Professional); California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT, Associate Member); California Psychological Association (CPA); and International Dyslexia Association (IDA). I have presented at many national conferences, and am co-author on more than two dozen peer-reviewed journal articles."

I am passionate about children, and I have more than 25 years of experience working with youth and families in a variety of settings (substance abuse research, therapeutic foster care, youth group homes, educational settings, and private practice).

My services include: in-depth assessments (cognitive, academic, behavioral, and emotional functioning as well as neuropsychological screenings); individual counseling with children and adolescents; consultation and support services with parents; and educational planning and support services with schools.

My theoretical orientation is primarily behavioral and cognitive-behavioral, although I utilize a variety of techniques based on each individual's needs.
