Dr. Jennifer Scheuchenzuber Joins the Behavioral Health Clinic

Dr. Jennifer Scheuchenzuber has joined the Boys Town South Florida team.

Boys ​Town South Florida is pleased to welcome Dr. Jennifer Scheuchenzuber as a Postdoctoral Fellow who joined the Behavioral Health Clinic on Dec. 15, 2014. Prior to working at Boys Town, Dr. Scheuchenzuber worked as a school psychologist in Indiana for eight years and completed her Ph.D. in School Psychology in 2006.

Dr. Scheuchenzuber is a Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP) and a Florida Licensed School Psychologist. She previously worked for a special education cooperative serving three school districts near Terre Haute, Indiana, where she worked with preschool through high school students with academic and behavior issues. Dr. Scheuchenzuber also served as an adjunct professor at Indiana State University.

From her experience as a school psychologist, she decided to seek fellowship training in Behavioral Pediatrics with Boys Town and participated in pre-service training in Omaha before returning to South Florida. Dr. Scheuchenzuber works under Dr. Chris McGinnis, Director of Behavioral Health, who was trained by Dr. Patrick Friman.

“I shadowed my supervisor, Dr. Chris McGinnis, before taking on my own clients,” said Dr. Scheuchenzuber. “I am now doing clinical assessments, family therapy, individual therapy, and psychological testing as well as having regular meetings with my supervisor in order to obtain the hours required to be a licensed psychologist.  I am really excited to be a part of the growing Behavioral Health Clinic in Boys Town South Florida and to have the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of the children and families we work with. I also hope to contribute to expanding our clinic by training future practitioners in the effective methods that Boys Town uses.”

“We are so fortunate and glad to have Dr. Jen Scheuchenzuber join our clinical staff,” Dr. Chris McGinnis said. “Her enthusiasm and commitment to her work are infectious and she is helping Boys Town to ambitiously build the Behavioral Health Clinic while maintaining the highest standards of client care.”

"We are beyond thrilled to have Dr. Scheuchenzuber on our team,” said Dr. Noemi Coltea, Development Director, Boys Town South Florida. “She will add great value to Boys Town and all the children and families we serve here.”

Dr. Scheuchenzuber has two children — a six-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son. “Most of my free time at home involves them,” said Dr. Scheuchenzuber. “We like having family movie nights and going to new places on the weekends. Our favorite is going to Lion Country Safari!”
