Andrea Brandon, Psy.D., HSPP, ABPP, is a board certified clinical child and adolescent psychologist who specializes in the treatment of childhood anxiety disorders. Prior to developing a private practice in Northwest Indiana, Dr. Brandon explicitly treated children and adolescents diagnosed with selective mutism using Parent Child Interaction Training – Selective Mutism (PCIT-SM), throughout the Chicagoland area, as part of her post-doctoral training and beyond. Dr. Brandon continues to provide evidenced-based behavioral and cognitive behavioral treatments to children and adolescents with selective mutism and co-occurring disorders. The treatment of selective mutism extends well beyond the office hour, thus Dr. Brandon facilitates community and school-based exposures to help generalize speaking behaviors; she also provides school-based and other professional consultation to educate and provide coaching to those who interact with children with selective mutism, to optimize speaking success in all settings of a child’s life. Dr. Brandon earned her board certification in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) in 2016. Dr. Brandon received her doctorate in clinical psychology in 2010 from Adler University in Chicago, Illinois, after having completed her pre-doctoral internship at the Children’s Institute, Inc., in Los Angeles, California.
