The Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. - Lao Tzu
Jacqueline K McKee
Child and Family Therapist
Licenced Professional Counselor
I began my counseling career in 1993 at a mental health center in Ohio. I worked with dissociative, schizophrenic, bipolar, and abused adults individually and in groups. Then I moved to working with children and teens individually, in groups, and in day treatment. I found that often in working with teens and children that I also needed to work with parents on parenting issues or their own personal issues that were getting in the way of their parenting or the relationship with their child(ren). I have been in practice for over 25 years and I love what I do! It brings such joy when a couple resolves their issues and decide to stay together or a child learns to cope with the bullies and other stressors in their life or an adult finds hope to move forward in their life after struggling with crippling anxiety, depression, and/or grief.
Child,Teen, and Family Counseling
I work with couples to better define the problem areas of their relationship. Together, we begin to look at the change and acceptance that each person may need to make in the relationship. Most often couples forget each other's positive traits that drew them together. I help couples re-discover those joys they once had together.
I meet with children, teens and adults individually to address depression, anxiety, grief, anger management, relationship issues, self-esteem, recovery issues, and other life problems that are getting in the way of living a happy life. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral therapy (and Dialectical Behavioral therapy) but also incorporate other therapeutic modalities as needed to provide the most effective care.
I work with children and teens to help them develop good life skills, increase their positive self-image, manage their behaviors, and build better relationships with family and friends. I will meet with the children and teens for individual appointments, and, when needed, I will meet with the parents individually to discuss parenting issues and concerns. Family counseling sessions are scheduled as needed.
