Catherine McKay, MS, Pre-Licensed Professional in Nashville
Forget what you've heard about therapy for a minute. Therapy does not have to be "boring." I am most passionate about challenging my clients to recognize their intrinsic worth and motivate them to build a life worth living. I most want them to rediscover purpose and joy. I walk through the journey with my clients. I pair acceptance strategies with strategies towards change. My clients know that I am all for taking "action steps" during therapy sessions. I will listen and empathize, while going the extra mile and doing what makes sense.
At PSYCHe, we do what works, using the evidence based modality of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy paired with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. We offer groups, 24/7 phone coaching, individual sessions, behavior plans, workshops, R&R, and Environmental Interventions.
I am supervised by Dr. Stephanie Vaughn, Psy.D., DBT Linehan-Board Certified Clinician. In addition to PSYCHe, I gained experience working with residential substance use treatment for co-occuring disorders and have gained experience working in a college counseling center.
