Ann M. Uherek, Psy.D.

Dr. Uherek has been providing psychological services for children and teens, and their families, for the last 35 years.  This has included referral to residential treatment centers and special therapeutic boarding schools, when needed.  She received her doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Denver in 1983, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology and developmental disabilities at the University of California, Los Angeles, Neuropsychiatric Institute.  She was in practice in California from 1984 through 1992 and  worked with adults and children in both inpatient and outpatient settings, with staff privileges at three psychiatric hospitals.  During this time, she was on the clinical faculty at UCLA as an assistant clinical professor in the medical school and Department of Psychiatry.  She became the Lead Psychologist and Director of the Child Psychiatry clinic at Children’s Bellevue, a satellite clinic of Seattle Children’s Hospital, in 1992 and was instrumental in developing an intensive intervention program for children with autism through the clinic. Dr. Uherek was an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Child Psychiatry, School of Medicine and Behavioral Sciences, at the University of Washington.  Since 2002, she has had a private practice in Woodinville and Snohomish, Washington.  She has a special interest in individuals with “unusual brains” (e.g., with genetic and neurodevelopmental disorders, autism, seizure disorders, learning disabilities, and traumatic brain injury), as well as challenging behaviors.  As part of her practice, she provides independent education evaluations for school districts, consults on school programs for special needs children, and is a provider for the Developmental Disabilities Administration in Washington State.
