About Me

Hello! My name is Dr. Cory McKinsey and I am a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Pasadena.

I have been providing mental health services in Southern California since I began my training at Azusa Pacific University in 2010. Since that time, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in psychotherapy and diagnostic assessment. 

After I completed my training in 2018, I realized that I wanted to dedicate my practice to helping others better understand themselves through assessment. I specialize in providing comprehensive psychological evaluations addressing a variety of concerns (such as emotional concerns, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, and executive functioning challenges).

I consider myself to be a compassionate provider, with the desire to help you (or your child) develop an understanding of those aspects of the self that make you uniquely who you are. It is my goal to collaborate with you in order to help you find answers and overcome barriers in your life.

A Bit About Psychological Assessment

I am frequently asked what psychological assessments are all about.

Basically, psychological evaluations help people better understand themselves and their internal experiences through the use of empirically supported tests. By examining various measures, I can help clarify, or hypothesize about, certain aspects of a person's behavior, personality, and capabilities.

There are a range of areas that assessments cover such as intelligence testing, personality testing, academic testing, and neurological testing. Contact me to discuss what type of evaluation may best benefit you and your needs.

My practice is 100% LGBTQ+ affirming
