She attended Wellesley College, did coursework at MIT and Harvard while later employed at Harvard University in the Dean’s Office of the Harvard Law School, the Cardiovascular Research Unit of the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, and the Neuropathology Department at Harvard Medical School. During this period she married a young physician then moved for his training to Los Angeles where she studied linguistics and psychology at UCLA and performed behavioral research under the supervision of Dr. Ivar Lovaas, developer of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), a key treatment for autism now available for every autism spectrum diagnosed child in many nations around the globe.
Dr. Stratton’s graduate study in Los Angeles encompassed health care systems management at the UCLA School of Public Health, social clinical psychology at the Wright Institute Los Angeles, Masters clinical psychology studies at the California Graduate Institute and advanced graduate coursework culminating in the Psy.D. degree from the American Behavioral Studies Institute in Beverly Hills. Her doctoral dissertation presented a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment protocol for correctly diagnosing ADHD after which she completed a 3-year postgraduate fellowship in psychoeducational and personality diagnostics at the Reiss-Davis Child Study Center in west Los Angeles.
In 2004 Dr. Stratton was recruited to provide autism diagnoses and EEG biofeedback services at the Optimal Health Spectrums Clinic, an advanced biomedical health service in Pleasanton, CA, southeast of San Francisco. Prior to that relocation from Southern California, she served as an adjunct professor in the Psychology Department of the American Intercontinental University.
Dr. Stratton’s business career has encompassed roles in business communications and marketing for Digital Equipment Corporation; outplacement counseling for Drake Beam Morin and various clients the include Cisco, Applied Materials, American Airlines, Texas Instruments, and others; executive recruiting in the healthcare and management consulting industries for Davis Resources in Santa Monica; preventive health clinic administration at the Santa Monica Bay Area Health Screening Clinic for the Elderly (Assistant Director, then President of the Board); line management for National Medical Enterprises, currently Tenet Healthcare Corporation, (Director, Physician Training); and executive administration in the Southern California financial services industry (Merrill Lynch Asset Managers, Assistant to the CEO, and, briefly, Castle Creek Life Sciences, Assistant Controller).
In 2007 Dr. Stratton founded an independent clinic for diagnostics, cognitive development, and psychotherapy for individuals of all ages in Pleasanton, California. This practice, Lifetime Development, currently offers EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) along with seasoned guidance for addressing challenging physical, emotional, and sensory issues. Due to the complexity of the cases consistently arriving in Dr. Stratton’s reception room over the past 16 years, her services have expanded to include auditory processing evaluations, coaching in principles of functional physiology, and selective referrals for primary neurosensory motor reflex integration and integrative medical services, both of which are foundational for normalizing many limiting aberrations of the mind and body.
