Christopher M. McGinn, MA, LCMHC
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
Chris McGinn is a North Carolina Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor who has experience working with individual adults, families, couples, and children age 10 to 18. He specializes in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and ADHD.
It is Chris’ goal to create a safe, accepting, and comfortable environment to allow you, the client, to grow in self-awareness and self-acceptance. This begins by working together to form a mutually desirable relationship and to bring focus to your counseling sessions by setting goals, that will be re-assessed throughout the counseling process. Chris' general counseling approach is based on the Humanistic perspective which helps you develop a stronger, healthier sense of self, as well as access and understand your feelings to help gain a sense of meaning in life.
Chris utilizes a person-centered, strengths-based approach to help you become your best self: the person you'd be if you just weren't so tired, so anxious, so angry, or so depressed. He believes your work together is to challenge the reasons you feel that way in the first place so you can move past them and start feeling happier, more productive, and more connected to the life you want. He incorporates modalities such as art therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, experiential therapy, play therapy, existential, and trauma focused therapy in sessions. Chris feels that a client-therapist relationship based on trust and acceptance is the most important element of successful therapy.
