McKenna Davis, MS, LMHC, NCC Child & Adolescent Therapist

MS, National Board Certified Counselor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor MH23127

At GroundWork, I provide evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help child and adolescent populations overcome their struggles with mental health challenges. I specialize in working with anxiety disorders, OCD, depression, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), behavioral issues, and comorbidities of disorders. Additionally, I collaborate closely with parents and families to provide parent education, training and additional support

I aim to create a welcoming, safe, and supportive environment where my clients feel comfortable sharing their individual struggles. I utilize therapeutic interventions such as CBT, ERP, and DBT to help my clients develop the tools and strategies to manage their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in healthy and effective ways while simultaneously working closely with parents to help them learn how to best support their child during the therapeutic process and beyond. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and families to improve communication, identify feelings, challenge unhelpful thinking patterns, and increase emotional regulation. Taking a collaborative and specialized approach is essential for me, as I tailor my treatment plan to address each child and family’s specific needs and goals. I encourage my clients to take an active role in their treatment and provide the tools and strategies they need to move toward living happier, healthier, and more engaging lives.

Education/Certification I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and pursued my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling both at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida (MH23127 ). I am also a National Board Certified Counselor, through the NBCC.

After my formal education, I received specialized training in evidence-based treatment from leading researchers and clinicians in the field of OCD and anxiety disorders at Rogers Behavioral Health, a nationally recognized intensive-outpatient program in Tampa, Florida. In addition to my training, I have extensive experience working with high-acuity clients struggling with OCD, anxiety disorders, and depression in both partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient settings. I recognize the unique challenges that young people and their families face, and I am committed to providing compassionate, evidence-based care to help them achieve their mental health goals.

About Me:  I am native to the Sunshine State. I grew up in central Florida, situated between New Smyrna Beach and Downtown Orlando, where I could be found surfing or active in the local arts. I am passionate about people and wellness and get to promote both of these personal values through my work. Causes that I am invested in include destigmatizing mental illness and promoting mental health care as a crucial part of well-being. Outside the office, I enjoy cozying up with a good book, listening to old records while cooking with loved ones, experimenting with film cameras, and exploring other cultures through travel.
