Dr. Colleen McMahon


About Me

I am a licensed Psychologist in the state of Ohio with expertise in learning and behavioral disorders, autism, ADHD, and parenting. I have over 25 years of experience providing psychological services in schools, hospitals, and clinics. I use evidence-based therapies to empower people with parents to better manage child behavior and experience calm at home. I use strength-based and solution-focused approaches to help adults with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) manage their symptoms to achieve their professional and personal goals. I am also a psychology professor committed to translating effective research into therapy practice that works to improve clients' lives.

My therapy style is warm and accepting. My therapy philosophy is evidence-based and practical; no matter how much research evidence supports a particular approach, clients have to feel that is right for them. I will adapt my treatment based on what works for you to feel comfortable and empowered. I enjoy working with clients from all backgrounds. I strive to promote strength and resilience for all my clients. If you are seeking to reduce your stress and build your resiliency, I would like to help.

I was really stuck mentally in my current situation. I put off therapy for a long time. I am so grateful that I've been able to work with Dr. McMahon. She's helped me to see options to change my situation.

Dr. McMahon has really helped me with my anxiety. I don't know where I'd be without her.

I was very nervous when I started BetterHelp because I was afraid it wasn’t going to be worth the money since I wouldn’t be able to meet with my counselor face to face but my mind completely changed shortly after my first session. I can honestly say that Dr. McMahon is probably one of the best counselors I have ever had. I have always had a hard time with clicking with counselors in the past but it’s so easy to talk to her and I always feel a 100x better after my session. She has helped me a lot in the short amount of time that I have been with her. She is also quick to respond when I send her a message. I Highly recommend and am so thankful for her.

Dr McMahon is very kind. It’s almost like talking to things with a “mom” type figure. She has helped me sort through and validate some feelings from my career to my moods to my food choices and how several of these correlate with one another. I would recommend her to anyone!

Dr. McMahon is so easy to talk to! She’s really able to listen to my concerns and provide some way for me to work through those by the end of the session. I look forward to working with her more!

Work with me!
