Jennifer A. Waltman, Psy.D., MBA, LP, National Register Health Service Psychologist, is a founding partner at NeuroCALM. Dr. Waltman previously served as the Chief Well-Being Officer at the Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center with more than 20-years of community experience. She also works as adjunct faculty with Mitchell Hamline School of Law, teaching in the Trauma-Informed Advocacy in Legal Systems Certificate program. Before devoting work to behavioral health and wellness, Dr. Waltman had a successful career as the Chief Operating Officer of a $3B financial company. Before that, she was the Executive Director of a children’s non-profit organization in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Waltman also served as the Commissioner of Community Development for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, having been mentored in Traditional Indigenous Female Leadership with Chief Executive Marge Anderson. As a 2014 Archibald Bush Foundation Fellow, she studied at the Institute for Applied Neuroscience in North Carolina and trained with Elders and Lakota Spiritual Leaders to gain healing and wellness competency from a traditional approach. During her clinical training, Dr. Waltman worked at the Native American Community Clinic (NACC), Clinic for Attention, Learning, & Memory (CALM), the Meadows Trauma & Addiction Treatment Center, NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center, Allina Health – Abbott Northwestern Hospital, and the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community Mental Health Clinic.

Dr. Waltman works with clients from ages 6 to 89. In addition to her passion for brain wellness with biomedical imaging from her initial research with Native American women, Dr. Waltman focuses on a Collaborative Therapeutic Neurocognitive Assessment (CTNA) process.  She facilitates individual and group services to improve executive functioning and stress management. Dr. Waltman also delivers training to strengthen care treating toxic-stress, to improve the understanding and impact of historical trauma, epigenetics, and applied neuroscience.

Additionally, she works with leaders in organizations to strengthen their skills while growing their ability to lead. Dr. Waltman has been coaching business and non-profit leaders since 2000. She also leads several consulting projects a year, improving the organizational wellness of organizations. Dr. Waltman often jokes that her “high beta” (wave) brain guided her to follow an entrepreneurial path so she could feed her need for diverse and robust work!

Dr. Waltman lives with her family in Minneapolis and enjoys traveling, describing herself as an “underwater explorer.” She discovered calm in curiosity during a scuba diving adventure to overcome a fear of drowning. She often uses stories of personal metaphors for cognitive (brain) and human investigative journeys. Dr. Waltman is an avid fan of Minnesota sports, lakes, and music (not necessarily in that order).
