Charles McDonald, Jr.

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor in Louisiana with over 27 years of experience. I have worked with clients in a wide range of settings; including residential, private practice, and community based. In my professional time I have addressed a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, educational and career challenges, OCD, ADHD, and Bipolar. I also have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, reality, psychodynamic, and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek a more meaningful and fulfilling life and to take the first steps towards change, because these first steps can be uncertain and overwhelming at times. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you and look forward to working with you.

The session with Charles McDonald, Jr is more a conversation than a lecture. I actually feel comfortable with a therapist.

Lin's down to earth and direct approach is very refreshing for those looking for a therapist that shoots straight. He's very kind and understanding, looking for ways to relate to your experience in order to help as best as possible through friendly warm conversation. Keeping things simple really helped tackle bigger issues by focusing on the small easily tangible fixes first. I highly recommend.
