Mckenna Coffey

MSW Intern

Supervised by Kendall Perez, LCSW #86801

Mckenna is currently attending the University of Southern California, where she is working towards a Master’s of Social Work. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Irvine. Mckenna has also completed 300+ hours of Yoga training and maintains a dedicated meditation practice. 

 

As a therapist, Mckenna’s practice is informed by holistic, integrative, and positive psychology. These approaches allow for clients to bring their whole selves into the therapeutic relationship. Together, Mckenna partners with clients to explore the connections between our internal worlds of mind, body, and spirit, and the external roles and relationships that we all must navigate. As a social worker, she also utilizes a strengths-based approach, which empowers clients to recognize their already realized potential. 

 

Mckenna works with teens, adults, and older adults across a range of life stages. She is interested in working with clients to deliver evidence-based care for healing trauma, developing coping strategies, recovering from depression, and managing anxiety, grief, life transitions, and relationships. Currently, Mckenna is trained in Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Problem Solving Therapy. She also incorporates breathwork and mindfulness to help clients learn how to soothe and work with their own nervous system.
