Throughout her training, Dr. Burt has worked in a number of settings, including multidisciplinary clinics, hospitals, private practices, and research laboratories. Within these settings she has gained experience in the treatment and evaluation of children, adolescents, and young adults with a variety of presenting concerns. In particular, Dr. Burt specializes in the treatment and evaluation of Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, learning disorders, intellectual disability, anxiety (e.g., OCD, selective mutism, social anxiety, phobias), mood disorders, and oppositional behavior.


Dr. Burt is dedicated to evidence-based practice and the science of psychology.
