Teneisha McIntyre, Ph.D

I am a passionate practitioner in the field of school psychology who divides my time between clinical practice, mental health consulting, and comprehensive school services. I received my doctoral degree from Howard University where I embraced a multicultural perspective by working with underrepresented populations within the Washington Metropolitan Area. I am a nationally certified school psychologist as well as a psychology associate in the state of Maryland. I have been working in the filed for approximately three years and I am currently preparing to obtain my licensure in psychology.

In my clinical practice, I deliver cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and other evidenced based treatments to children and adolescents with a wide range of emotional, behavior and adjustment problems such as anxiety, trauma, ADHD, conduct disorder, autism, and depression. In my consulting work, I provide mental health consultation to teachers and parents to help prevent and treat behavior concerns, as well as promote social, emotional and academic competence within children.

I also provide comprehensive school services that include conducting psychoeducational assessments (i.e. chart/file review, achievement testing, cognitive testing, structured observations, and interviews), collaborating with school staff in Individual Educational Plan (IEP) meetings, writing psychoeducational reports and IEP goals for educational progress, and conducting functional behavioral analysis (FBA) evaluations. Overall, I aim to inspire children and families to be active agents in their own success, to transform maladaptive thought patterns while taken into account cultural and environmental factors to ultimately improve their circumstances.

In my free time, I enjoy binge watching my favorite shows and hosting gatherings for family and friends.
