About Dr. McMahan

I am a licensed psychologist in private practice and a part-time assistant professor in the Department of Counseling and Human Development Services at the University of Georgia, where I feel privileged to teach graduate-level clinical courses.


My approach to psychotherapy is an integration of science and practice: my work with clients is grounded and supported by current research and sustained by my own enthusiasm for learning and knowledge. I am passionate about psychotherapy and promoting competency and ethics in my field and I continue to publish research and present at national and international academic conferences. I am a member of the Athens Psychological Association, Georgia Psychological Association and American Psychological Association.


Psychotherapy is a transformative process that is proven to be beneficial. You can expect that as your psychotherapist, I will anticipate and believe in your healing and growth, self-actualizing capacity, resiliency, and your unique and transcendent potential.


My style is collaborative and relational. A trusting and affirming relationship is the foundation of effective psychotherapy. You can expect me to be warm, enthusiastic, non-judgmental, honest, and engaged.
