He then worked as a school psychologist in a “west valley” and then an “east valley” school district. Afterwards, he completed a two-year post-doctoral residency in clinical neuropsychology (mainly with adults) at a local private practice. Dr. Andersen then worked full-time as a staff psychologist conducting clinical neuropsychological evaluations before opening up his own practice in April 2019.
Collectively, Dr. Andersen has worked with several school districts, numerous schools and individuals ranging from preschool to over 90 years old.
