My name is Archelena McDonald (the preferred name is Dee Dee), and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Los Angeles, California, and serving clients statewide via telehealth. I currently work with adults and specialize in providing treatment for mood disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, psychosis, grief and loss, PTSD, and couples/family counseling. Therapy is never a "one size fits all," so I try to partner with my client to help identify desired areas of growth.
My main desire in providing care is to "meet the client where they're at," so I have had the opportunity to work with various populations dealing with various issues. My goal in every interaction is to provide resourceful tools that will empower my clients to feel well-equipped to live fulfilling lives despite unforeseeable circumstances.
I am big on rapport, so my communication style is to exude a level of empathy that allows my clients to feel seen, heard, and understood. I do this by creating a safe atmosphere where my clients won't feel judged and can trust me to help identify any areas of improvement that may help them live a more enriching life.
