Dr. Amanda Pickerill


Thank you for visiting my site and welcome!


I became a licensed psychologist over 20 years ago.  I have worked as a psychologist in public schools, private practice, and a mental health agency.  I have also taught graduate classes for the University of Dayton on Learning Disabilities and Development. Most of my career, I focused in on disorders that impacted educational advancement such as AD/HD, Learning Disorders, Anxiety and Behavioral Disorders, etc. I have never lost that interest and continue to specialize in that area.  Within the past ten years, I have additionally focused in on children that struggle with attachment, anxiety, or relational connections (ex. anxiety disorder, autism, aspergers, trauma- and stress-related disorders). To best work with these children, I have completed evidenced-based training programs such as EMDR, Theraplay, and Trama Focused -Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).  I emphasized "evidenced-based" because every good psychologist should use techniques that have proof of efficacy.  I became a certified PLAY Project behavioral consultant-- again, an evidence-based program for young children with Autism.  I too have been trained in the ADOS-2.   I am a certified facilitator of the Circle of Security Parenting Program. 


You should know, I have three amazing and uniquely bent children of my own-- from grade-school age to university age. I have found parenting to be quite challenging and maturing.  I am all about empowering you to better understand your child and know how best to help him/her. You were chosen to parent your child and can be equipped to do just that!  


I also would like you to know that I am a Christian, I enjoy spending time with my family, and enjoy giving back to my community. 



Let's get to work!
