Areas of Focus: Children, Adolescents, & Adults
I have experience working with adults, children, and adolescents who are coping with the effects of trauma, anxiety, and depression. I believe in the power of family systems and, in many cases, family member involvement is encouraged. I am a compassionate therapist who utilizes cognitive behavior therapy and narrative therapy to help individuals overcome challenges and create the life they hope to live.
I have experience working with grief/loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and mindfulness. I teach the power of self regulation through incorporating present experience and past success.

Additional interests include helping children who have been impacted by trauma, as well as children who are struggling with peers or changes within their family system. I am also trained in grief and loss, and I am honored to walk alongside each client through their most trying times.

I am passionate about working with children and families who are experiencing challenges due to generational trauma, trauma within the family, addiction issues, and communication challenges. I whole heartedly embrace strength based interventions; every individual and family has strengths! My goals are to help you identify your strengths, your inner wisdom during this process together. My hope is to walk with you providing encouragement, insight, and compassion in your journey toward recovery and wellness.

Nathan McKeefry, MS, LPC
Areas of Focus: Children, Adolescents, Trauma
I am experienced and enjoy helping children, adolescents, and their families work through past traumas and experiences in order to have a better quality of life. My goal as a child therapist is to provide a supportive and safe therapeutic environment for individuals and families to share their story. As individuals share thoughts and feelings that are meaningful to them, it is my hope to cultivate the positive change that each child and family seeks to find. I believe in the importance of engaging children directly in the treatment process including the development of goals that are important to them. I focus on fostering the strengths of the child and family in order to develop necessary skills that will be the most effective as they strive to achieve their goals.
Other specialties include assisting children and adolescents with trauma experiences, depressive and anxiety disorders, ADHD, as well as disruptive, impulse-control, and conduct disorders.
