Julie Smallman, Ph.D.

Throughout her career, Dr. Julie has maintained an interest in assessing individuals with medical challenges as well as in the development of cognitive skills through adulthood. She enjoys working with students with ADHD, developmental and medical conditions (e.g., genetic conditions, concussion), and learning differences. Having worked with Dr. Daisy for many years, Dr. Julie is excited about conducting evaluations that are client-centered and positive with an emphasis on personal understanding. Through that process, she has seen first-hand how such evaluations can help young people better understand themselves and feel more empowered in personal endeavors. She is also a mom to three wonderful teenagers, loves history, travel, and running, and is contemplating guitar lessons.

Dr. Julie obtained her doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology in 2003 from American University. During her training, she worked in the Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology Laboratory at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) from 1995 to 1997, during which she received an Intramural Training Award. She also completed therapy and assessment externships at Children’s National Medical Center and Mount Washington Pediatric Hospital from 1997 to 2000, as well as a post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at the Veterans’ Affairs Medical Center in 2004.
