Dr. Lawrence moved to Northwest Ohio in 1993, having completed her PhD at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg Canada, her pre-doctoral internship and fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, and her post-doctoral fellowship in Rehabilitation Psychology and Neuropsychology at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor. Since coming to Toledo, she has worked in faculty positions as an Assistant Professor and Clinical Neuropsychologist at the Medical College of Ohio Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Associate Professor and Director of the Psychological Services Center at Bowling Green State University.

Dr. Lawrence continues to be actively involved in teaching psychiatry and psychology residents as volunteer clinical faculty at the University of Toledo Medical Center Department of Psychiatry. Presently, she considers herself fortunate to be able to pursue her passion for neuropsychology as the Clinical Neuropsychologist at the Community Hospitals and Wellness Centers in Bryan/Montpelier and her love of psychotherapy at the Assessment and Family Therapy Center of Northwest Ohio in Sylvania.

Her specialties are: individual and couples psychotherapy, neuropsychological assessment (traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, neuromuscular disorders, medical mysteries), psychological IMEs associated with work injuries and disability applications, assessment for ADHD and learning disabilities, and bariatric pre-surgical assessment for laparoscopic banding and gastric bypass.
