Claire McKay, M.A.
Licensed Professional Counselor
Everyone has difficult challenges or transitions in their life that may be accompanied by feelings of anxiety, loneliness, frustration, or fear. These transitions may give rise to relationship issues or just feeling "stuck" and unable to navigate life. Perhaps the things that used to work for you just don't work anymore and you're looking for a new approach and a more enlightened perspective.
I believe that often our crises are part of the Hero's journey to wholeness and that we can transcend seemingly insurmountable problems with grace and courage given the right support. My goal is to provide that guidance and support as you move towards a more powerful and authentic sense of self and to help you become the architect of your future rather than a prisoner of your past.
I work with my younger clients to teach them to set healthy boundaries, manage stress, and cope with feelings of low self-esteem, anxiety, or discouragement. The goal is to raise their "Emotional IQ" and to help them become aware of how their inner experiences affect them and either move them towards their goals or away from them.
"I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become."
