She established the practice in 1991 in Pasadena, California.  Dr. Davis is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in psychotherapy and parent support.  As a graduate of Brown University Program in Medicine's Post-doctoral Fellowship in Early Childhood Psychology research and practice and a former Director of Research at UCLA's Department of Pediatrics FOCUS Project, she brings experience and expertise in child development theory and research.

Dr. Davis designed the intensive in-home model of DIR/Floortime intervention for children with autism and other developmental disabilities and their parents which is currently being offered at Greenhouse Therapy Center.  Holding degrees in Theology and Clinical Psychology from Fuller Graduate School of Psychology, she offers support and insight for clients who wish to integrate their faith with their personal growth.  She is the clinical supervisor of the staff of doctoral students, master's level interns, and post-doctoral fellows, ensuring all our clients are getting outstanding care. 

Dr. Andrea Davis is highly recommending you meet with our clinical director, Dr. Ryan Thomas, so he may assess your situation, recommend a variety of potential solutions, and refer the best providers in the area, possibly at Greenhouse Therapy Center, depending on the specific approach needed, scheduling match, and payment flexibility.
