We are very pleased to announce that Jonathan Jenkins, Psy.D. will join NESCA in September as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuropsychology.
Dr. Jenkins previously served as the Postdoctoral Fellow in Clinical Psychology with a Focus on Autism at The Help Group of Sherman Oaks, California where he engaged in individual psychotherapy and psycho-educational assessment for children and adolescents with cognitive and developmental challenges.
In addition to his responsibilities at NESCA, he will also hold a position at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in the Child and Adolescent Outpatient Department, where he will provide psychotherapy and participate as a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty.
Dr. Jenkins recently authored a therapeutic book, “Wednesday Afternoons with Dr. J.,” which chronicles a child’s first interactions with his new therapist so as to help familiarize children with what to expect when in therapy.
Dr. Jenkins’ past professional clinical work includes his pre-doctoral internship at Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, MA, where he provided both psychological assessment and outpatient individual and family psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults.
He also completed the prestigious Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) Fellowship, a program sponsored by UMass Medical School and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center focused on public policy initiatives and advocacy related to those with neurodevelopmental disabilities.
