Assessment and Therapy

Dr. Jennifer McDonald

Assessment & Therapy

 

You have high expectations.

So do I. We should work together.

I help people figure out where their strengths are & where they need more support so they can meet those expectations.

My specialties include:

  • Psychological testing for ADHD, dyslexia, giftedness, & other learning concerns for children, teens, & adults.

  • Individual therapy for teens & adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, panic, & stress.

  • Teletherapy for individuals who prefer to work from the comfort of their own home rather than in-office.

  • Therapy and direction for individuals going through a faith transition or crisis.

  • Consultation for professionals and educators who want to improve their knowledge in the areas of working with people with learning differences &/or learning about social emotional learning.

  • Working with professionals to help chart life direction, values, and decrease stress.

I have over a decade of experience in providing therapy. I value competence, meaning, honesty, humor, and curiosity in my work. Sound like a match?

strategizing for success

Are you a professional who doesn’t feel like you need therapy, but you need something to help you get on track? Maybe you’re a therapist who hasn’t found the right fit for your own therapy. Or a healthcare provider who is struggling with burnout. It’s possible you’re just trying to balance it all and finding that you’re dropping balls along the way. I can help you find a way to manage and decompress, while optimizing your success.


teletherapy

Sometimes you just can’t make it into the office for a session. Maybe you just prefer to be at home for therapy. I offer teletherapy via a secure video service to allow for therapy to proceed as usual. If this seems like a fit for you, give me a call and we can discuss the details.


therapy addressing spirituality and faith

It’s not uncommon to feel a little adrift after you leave your faith tradition. Maybe you just aren’t sure whether your spiritual home is still welcoming you and you need some help navigating that. I’ve worked with many individuals who have been through what you’re going through. An outside perspective can help you clarify your values and find your boundaries again.
