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.

Dr.McMahon is a great therapist. She is my first therapist I’ve ever had and she was very supportive and helped me understand what therapy is. When she realized my problems where out of her experience she didn’t hesitate to let me know to see someone that specializes in that field.

So incredibly thankful to have found Dr. McMahon. She’s a wonderful therapist who allows me the time and space to process things on my own, but forces me to focus and reevaluate my issues in a different light. She’s very personable and easy to talk to. I love having her as my therapist!
