Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Makenna!

Starting therapy can sometimes feel daunting. I am here to get to know you and support you through the highs, lows, and everything in between! Through my experiences in graduate school and into licensure, I have put my energy towards developing my skills and passion for working with families, children, individuals, and parents through a multitude of needs and diagnoses. I have worked extensively with children, families, teens, and young adults, and I am certified in TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). I have developed skills across several modalities that help me provide holistic and integrative care, allowing us to cultivate and rediscover your strengths and areas of growth, and create goals that align with your needs and values. I will explore and integrate your strengths and experiences into our work and lend support here and now. The work that I do is trauma-informed and shaped by your unique experiences. I utilize themes of the play, art techniques, behavioral strategies, traditional talk therapy, mindfulness, and techniques to promote change and insight. I take an emotion-focused approach while also exploring the barriers to your success, your growth, and any negative beliefs about yourself that may be holding you back from truly thriving. I am excited to start our work together!
