About My Clients
Are you on a journey to discover your identity through self-exploration? Are you having a hard time adjusting to a new season of your life? Do you feel sad, anxious, or angry and have difficulty identifying why? Are you having difficulty navigating your relationships (e.g., friendships, intimate partnerships, or familial relationships)? You want to live a life where you are operating at your fullest potential. You want to remain who you genuinely are, even when faced with adversity.
My Background and Approach
McKayla has worked with children, adolescents and young adults. McKayla has worked with individuals interested in exploring their identity, individuals experiencing depression, difficulties adjusting to new circumstances, trauma symptoms, anxiety, feelings of suicide, and more. She takes an integrative and person-centered approach to therapy. She utilizes Trauma-Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Psychodynamic Theory, a Family Systems approach; and/or The Attachment, Regulation, and Competency Model (ARC) to tailor her approach to meet her clients where they are at.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
McKayla celebrates diversity, while also paying close attention to the issues of culture and the systematic barriers that may impact her client’s well-being. An example of her approach could look like exploring the undesired physical and emotional feelings attached to previous experiences impacting the quality of an individual’s daily life.
