Dorothy is a Clinical Psychologist and a behavioral therapist at Brightline.

Dorothy predominantly works with children and teens (from ages 6 to 18) and their parents. She loves helping families navigate a variety of mental health issues, but particularly enjoys treating anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders. Dorothy is humbled that families let her into their lives at vulnerable times to collaboratively access their values and strengths.

The Fun Stuff

Random thing about me? I never liked the “great outdoors” until I lived in Seattle, where I suddenly discovered the joy of hiking! 

Perfect Saturday? Barbeque from our favorite place, a picnic in the park, and a walk around the pond.

Funny family memory? Growing up, I never had the stomach for horror movies, but watched them anyway throughout my early teens. I ended up freaking out, sleeping with the lights on, and waking up my parents more times than I can count. Ironically, now that I’m older, I find I can watch most scary movies without a problem. Exposure therapy, baby!
