Jennifer Strickland, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in providing therapy for children with behavioral challenges (e.g., attention; hyperactivity; impulsivity; defiance), difficulties with emotion regulation, anxiety, adjustment, and trauma. Therapy includes parent involvement/support in addition to individual child work.

Dr. Strickland incorporates mindfulness, attachment theory, and play therapy techniques into her treatment.

She completed an internship at LSU in New Orleans, with a focus on assessment and treatment for young children with traumatic experiences and a postdoctoral fellowship at The Erikson Institute’s Center for Children and Families. In addition to her private practice at CAPSS, Dr. Strickland is a Clinical Research Psychologist at Seattle Children’s, where she provides assessment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and behavior management training for parents with children experiencing ADHD and oppositional behaviors.
