Dr. Hewett works with children, adolescents, and adults in the Child Anxiety Center, DBT Center, and Eating Disorders Center.
Dr. Hewett grew up in Kazakhstan and moved with her family to Boston, Massachusetts when she was 14. She attended Brandeis University and received her medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine. Despite being curious about living on the West Coast and interviewing at UW for both residency and fellowship, she ended up staying in Boston to attend the Harvard Longwood Psychiatry Residency Program. As part of her residency training Dr. Hewett gained experience in dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center DBT partial hospitalization program.
Dr. Hewett finally made her West Coast move to train at the Stanford University Child and Adolescent Fellowship program, where she worked at the Comprehensive Eating Disorders Program at El Camino Hospital, and as part of a multidisciplinary team in the Pediatric Anxiety Disorders Clinic, where she received supervised training in cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication management for children and adolescents with OCD, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, selective mutism, and school avoidance. It was during this time that she came to appreciate an evidence-based approach, as well as collaborative work between therapists and psychiatrists.
After completing her fellowship, Dr. Hewett worked at Kaiser Northern California, where she supervised Stanford Child Psychiatry Fellows during their time on the intensive outpatient therapy rotation. Dr. Hewett and her family moved to Seattle in 2020, where she worked at Washington Kaiser Permanente before joining EBTCS.
Dr. Hewett is Board Certified in Adult, Adolescent and Child Psychiatry, with clinical interests in anxiety and depressive disorders, OCD and ADHD. She is looking forward to working with children, adolescents, and adults who need medication management support to help make the most of their efforts in therapy.
