Helping you perform at your best.
What is an Action Potential?
The term "Action Potential" describes the proper balance of electrical charges within a neuron (brain cell) that causes it to fire. Dr. MacIntire, chose to use this term to describe clinical, sport, and health-coaching services because it fits with her views of change and healing. Specifically, many people seek help when they are not feeling their best or just want to get going in the right direction. Perhaps you have faced some circumstances that have left you feeling a bit off-- as a person or an athlete. Maybe you feel disconnected with yourself or you know that you're not performing at your best. Talking with someone could help you to identify what needs to change so that you can get back in touch with your action potential.
** At this time, Dr. MacIntire is not taking individual therapy clients at this location, due to clinical work at another site. Dr. MacIntire is able to accommodate a limited number of clients for group therapy and for non-clinical individual services (i.e., sport psychology, career counseling, and health coaching). For more information, please call 970-609-9810. Voicemails are returned weekly.
Some groups are therapeutic and others are skills based (e.g., sport psychology). Groups are great for learning new skills and getting support from peers in the process. See the groups page for more information about current group options. If you don't see what you're looking for, suggest a group topic!
Are you struggling to set goals related to health behavior changes, like diet and exercise? Health coaching is a non-clinical service offered to those who do not need traditional psychotherapy. If a physician, nutritionist or dietitian has recommended a specific diet for you OR you have chosen one for yourself, but you are struggling to stick with it, health coaching may be for you.
Sport Psychology involves the application of psychological skills and team-building to enhance performance. Sport Psychology is for anyone who wants to perform at their best-- it's not just for elite athletes. In fact, many of the skills learned during Sport Psychology training are transferable to other areas of life, including academics and career.
If you are unsure of your career direction, you're not alone. Choosing a career direction can be quite a daunting process. Career transitions are quite common in today's tumultuous and ever-changing economy. Sorting out career-related interests, preferences, and skills can help you move in a productive direction.

Individual therapy includes treatment for mental health symptoms (e.g., anxiety, depression) as well as exploration of patterns of behavior. Individual therapy is often the treatment of choice for diagnosable mental health conditions, but you don't have to wait until you are experiencing serious distress to work through some of your "stuff."
Psychological Assessment or Evaluation is a service that is often requested when someone wants or needs a better understanding of their functioning. Evaluations can help to clarify complicated diagnoses, identify learning disorders and ADHD, and answer specific questions that someone has about themselves.
An array of consultation and research services are available. Whether you are seeking specific information on a mental health diagnosis or you want to understand your employees better, research and consultation may be helpful to you. Program evaluation services are available to better understand how programs and services meet the needs of the clients/ customers and express the values of the organization.
