Areas of Focus: Couples, Adolescents, and Families
For many years, I have enjoyed working with children, adolescents, couples, and families by providing both individual and family therapy. I work to provide a safe place of hope and healing for those struggling with trauma, anxiety, and depression as well as disconnect in relationships with others. Together, we maximize and build upon strengths to create skills needed to have a healthy relationship with self and others.
In addition, I am passionate about providing support to those who seek conflict resolution and crisis stabilization. I have worked with individuals re-entering the community after incarceration as well as adolescents who are at risk of out of home placement and are seeking encouragement, hope and guidance on rebuilding relationships. I use strength-based cognitive-behavioral approaches with spiritual values to honor your journey.

Licensed Psychologist (WI & MN)
Areas of Focus:
Emotion Regulation Therapy
Psychological Testing/ADHD Assessment
I am experienced in helping adults and adolescents who experience problems regulating (managing) difficult emotions and internal experiences. I provide an accepting and validating therapeutic environment along with a set of specialized skills intended to help reduce the stigma, pain, and intensity of these emotions/experiences. This approach can be applied to the treatment of many different mental health challenges, including (but not limited to) generalized anxiety, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress, depression, eating disorders and body image dissatisfaction, anger management difficulties, and self-harming/self-injurious behaviors. In addition, I am skilled in helping couples overcome emotional barriers that are standing in the way of a fulfilling relationship and helping couples develop necessary skills to maintain emotional intimacy.
I am also able to provide psychological testing and interpretation using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventories, including the (MMPI-2) for adults ages 18 and older, and MMPI-A for adolescents ages 12-17.

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.

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.
