My name is Christina Mackey, and I am a Doctor of Clinical Psychology. I graduated from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. I have a clinical focus on the children and adolescent population. I have experience working in the following settings: therapeutic day school, hospital outpatient, community mental health, and private practice. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Georgia with Psych Pact approval. The majority of my clinical experience has been in psychological assessment, including psychoeducational, social-emotional-behavioral, and disability assessments.

What advice would you give to a family who is on the fence about signing up for a learning assessment (or counseling/therapy)?

Early intervention is key! The sooner you are able to obtain support for your family member or loved one, the faster the individual can start to make strides towards making improvements in their areas of need.

What would you say to someone who is very anxious about learning problems in school?

There are more students struggling academically than most people realize. That means you are not alone, and it is not atypical. The good news is that seeking support can help you reach your goals and make improvements in school.

What gets you excited about Parallel?

I am excited about Parallel because I will have access to a platform that will provide connections with families, students, and schools who may have otherwise had limited or no access. I also appreciate the benefits of providing services to individuals throughout the United States as often times clinical assessment appointments are booked out for months and clients have to go long periods without proper resources or accommodations.
