Cynthia Polance PsyD
PsyD - Clinical Psychology, Pacific University School of Professional Psychology Hillsboro, OR. PreDoctoral internship through the University of Minnesota Medical School, Dept. of Pediatrics. Postdoctoral fellowship through the University of Washington Autism Center. Licensed in Oregon.
At the WPCS Tualatin office I provide psychological testing, primarily addressing Autism Spectrum Disorder in children under age 6. I will investigate additional mental health questions at the direct request of other mental health providers I do not generally provide psychological testing beyond young adult age (early 20’s).
At the WPCS Tigard office I provide bariatric evaluations with a direct referral from PeaceHealth. I also provide adult transgender surgery letters at, with a direct therapist referral or self-referral if I have seen you before. I also carry a very small caseload of therapy clients at the Tigard office.
I provide empirically supported treatment that is grounded in behavioral theories, including mindfulness, components of Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
I only work part-time at WPCS so that I can spend more time with my children. My waitlist for Autism testing is generally 1-2 months. For other testing it is about 3 months. For adult letters it is usually within the month. This may vary a bit during the holidays and summer. My voicemail is only through the Tualatin office x1040
