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.
