Beth Prittie, Ph.D.
Dr. Prittie received her Doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk Jayhawk!) and Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Washburn University. She completed clinical training at Children’s Mercy Hospital (specializing in neuropsychological assessment with children 6-months to 17 years of age), Osawatomie State Hospital, health and counseling centers at the University of Kansas and Washburn University, and right here at Responsive Centers! Dr. Prittie has also taught a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, and is currently an adjunct professor at Washburn University, teaching child and adolescent assessment. She actively supervises graduate students at Responsive Centers, and believes teaching students is one of the best ways to continue growing as a clinician.
While Dr. Prittie focuses her work in psychological assessment of individuals of all ages, she specializes in evaluation for children and adolescents, including the areas of general development, mood/personality functioning, attention/executive functioning, and learning. She also has specialized training in evaluation for ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dr. Prittie has a passion for her work with children and their families and views the evaluation process as one of the most critical ways to help a family connect and establish a plan of action. While Dr. Prittie’s primary role is in evaluation, she also provides some individual therapy services, primarily with teens.
When Dr. Prittie is not here, she spends time with her wonderful twin daughters and husband, and approaches her clinical work understanding the parenting role! She loves being a working mom, and appreciates the care it takes to balance a life with many roles! She is a Lego-enthusiast and firmly believes we all need to keep our inner child alive and thriving! Her favorite movie is The Wizard of Oz, and she has been a Kansan for most of her life.
