Licensed Marriage &Family Therapist
Kara McGinley is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working for Therapeutic
and Wellness Solution Center. Kara received her Master's in Clinical Psychology in
2019. Her approach to therapy is to use evidence-based practices (i.e. CBT and
EMDR) paired with compassion and empathy to connect with a client's presenting
challenge. Kara is the type of therapist that uses friendliness and humor to create a
down-to-earth environment that helps clients feel at ease during their sessions. She believes that the dynamic between therapist and client is essential to the client's success in therapy. Kara collaborates with her clients to create short term and long term goals that feel manageable and realistic.
Prior to receiving her MA, Kara gained experience working as a Rehabilitation Specialist for a community mental health clinic, and as a sexual assault survivor's advocate for Riverside Area Rape Crisis Center. Following graduate school, Kara furthered her experience by working with survivors of domestic violence, as well as individuals who have experienced challenges associated with life transitions, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, trauma, and ADD/ADHD.
Beginning the process of therapy can be one of the hardest parts of the journey, but Therapeutic and Wellness Solution Center hopes to make that transition go as smoothly as possible. If you are interested in working with Kara, please reach out to begin the process.
Kara is currently accepting new clients. If you would like to schedule a session with Kara, please send her a message or call us at (760) 566-5516.
