Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health welcomes Traci W. Olivier, Psy.D., to the Pediatric Development and Therapy Center, an interdisciplinary clinic that assesses, treats, and manages pediatric development conditions. Dr. Olivier specializes in neuropsychological services for children and adolescents with complex medical and neurological needs, in addition to those with learning and attentional concerns.
Dr. Olivier received her doctoral degree in clinical psychology, with an emphasis on neuropsychology, from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. She completed her internship at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, which is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) and designated as a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) program. Dr. Olivier completed a postdoctoral clinical and research fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. She holds professional memberships with American Psychological Association, the International Neuropsychological Society, the National Academy of Neuropsychology, and the Louisiana Psychological Association.
The Pediatric Development and Therapy Center is the only medically-based clinic in Louisiana offering both medical and therapy services in one location. The practice is led by developmental pediatricians Steven Felix, MD, and Cindy Chestaro, MD. Clinical psychologist Melissa Gonzalez, PhD, also joined the team earlier this year and has established the Pediatric Feeding Clinic to assess and treat feeding difficulties in children up to 10 years of age.
Dr. Olivier specializes in neurocognitive evaluations and rehabilitation for children and adolescents experiencing cognitive difficulties secondary to medical and neurological conditions such as developmental disorders, acquired or traumatic brain injuries, seizure-related disorders, brain tumors, and other hematology/oncology diagnoses. Additionally, she evaluates children and adolescents with learning, attentional, and/or psychiatric concerns.
Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health Pediatric Development and Therapy Center is located at 8415 Goodwood Boulevard, Suite 200, in Baton Rouge. Visit ololchildrens.org/childdevelopment to learn more.
