McKenna’s therapeutic approach is full of compassion, creativity, and curiosity. Her goal is to create a safe environment for collaboration, in which she recognizes that each person will bring their own unique experiences and knowledge to sessions. Life can be unpredictable, so McKenna meets each person where they are at in every session. She approaches therapy with flexibility and a gentle but direct approach to work towards the goals of each individual.
McKenna is passionate about helping adults and adolescents with anxiety, depression, stress management, identity exploration, self-esteem, navigating challenges in relationships, and life transitions and adjustments. She works with individuals looking to gain a deeper connection with themselves and within their relationships to live a life that feels as authentic and fulfilling as possible.
She uses an integrative therapy model and often implements tools from multiple modalities in her work. These modalities include client-centered, internal family systems, and implementing mindfulness strategies to bring about a deeper awareness and connection to oneself. Her approach to therapy is strengths-based in nature, and she enjoys working with clients to set clear goals and shift behaviors to achieve change.
McKenna is working under the licensed supervision of Lorie Crandall, MA, LMFT (approved LPCC supervisor) while she pursues clinical licensure as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.
