Dr. Maria Holsman is a licensed Clinical Psychologist with Washington State, specializing in psychological and neuropsychological evaluations for clinical and forensic populations.
She earned a Doctorate of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology from Seattle Pacific University, a program fully accredited by the American Psychological Association. Her internship and post-doctoral fellowship at the Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System focused on rotations involving geriatric and adult neuropsychological evaluations, mental illness research, and in the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) outpatient center.
Dr. Holsman subsequently completed two years of a post-doctoral fellowship – the first year with the University of Washington involving clinical research and neuropsychological testing focusing on cognitive and mood effects of testosterone. The second year of fellowship through VA Puget Sound in Seattle involved rotations in Rehabilitation Psychology settings (Spinal Cord Injury, General Rehab) and Poly-Trauma Care (for various populations to include individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD), providing psychological and neuropsychological assessment.
While Dr. Holsman has experience providing individual and group psychotherapy to Veteran, inpatient, and outpatient psychiatric populations, the focus of her clinical expertise includes clinical and forensic psychological and neuropsychological services. She currently evaluates Veterans for psychological and neuropsychological conditions who are claiming compensation/pension through VA Puget Sound.
