Bio

Grayce Stratton, Psy.D., Ph.D.

Grayce Marie Stratton, Psy.D. is a neuropsychologist, psychotherapist, holistic health coach, and EEG biofeedback provider who is expert in case review and prioritized appropriate treatment intervention sequencing. She attended Wellesley College, did coursework at MIT and Harvard while employed at Harvard University, first in the Dean’s Office of the Harvard Law School, then in the Cardiovascular Unit of the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, and finally in the Neuropathology Department at Harvard Medical School. She married a young physician during this time, then moved 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 to nearly every autism spectrum diagnosed child in many nations over 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 degree studies at the California Graduate Institute and advanced clinical psychology coursework culminating in the Psy.D. 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 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 she served as an adjunct professor in the Psychology Department of the American Intercontinental University.

In 2007 Dr. Stratton founded an independent clinic for diagnostics, cognitive development, and psychotherapy for individuals of all ages. This practice, Lifetime Development, currently offers neurofeedback along with seasoned guidance for addressing challenging emotional, physical 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 audition and auditory processing evaluations, coaching in principles of functional medicine, and selective referrals for primary neurosensory motor reflex integration and functional medical services, both of which are foundational for normalizing many limiting aberrations of cognitive, motor, physical, and emotional development.

Previously Dr. Stratton was the Harvard Medical School staff representative to the 5-member Harvard Medical School committee to study the expansion of Harvard University into the surrounding Roxbury Community; Board Member of the Biofeedback Institute of Los Angeles; President of the Board of the Center for Healthy Aging in Santa Monica, California; Commissioner of the Fifth Division American Youth Soccer Organization; and Santa Monica community representative to the Santa Monica Malibu Budget Advisory Committee. She currently organizes the San Francisco Bay Area Functional Medicine Forum and is a member of the (Svetlana) Masgutova Foundation Board of Directors Scientific Advisory Council, an organization dedicated to expanding understanding and implementation of the Masgutova Method of reflex reintegration for optimizing overall neurosensory functioning.

Dr. Stratton’s business career has encompassed roles in business marketing for Digital Equipment Corporation; outplacement counseling for Drake Beam Morin and various clients including Cisco, Applied Materials, American Airlines, Texas Instruments, and others; executive recruiting in the healthcare and management consulting industries for Proctor and Davis; preventive health clinic administration for the Center for Healthy Aging in Santa Monica (Assistant Director); line management for National Medical Enterprises, currently Tenet Healthcare, (Director of Physician Training); and executive administration in the Southern California financial services industry (Merrill Lynch Asset Managers and Castle Creek Life Sciences).
