Hello and welcome! You are taking an important step by reaching out for help and that takes strength. I hope you can recognize that strength in yourself.
My name is Charis McKee and I am a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) and I have my Master’s in Counselor Education from McDaniel College. I have experience working with adults that struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, substance abuse, and life transitions. To describe my therapeutic style, I would explain it as a mix of process-oriented, person focused, and CBT. I try to adapt to what my client needs and continue to learn new skills to support those I work with. In our first session, you can expect to share about what is bringing you in and a brief history. We will also start to explore what you would like to get out of therapy and collaborate together on your goals. All I expect from you is to remain open minded and committed to the process. Change takes time and we will regularly discuss how you think things are going. I look forward to learning how I can walk along side you during this time.
