Hello! I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with adults over a wide spectrum of issues and life problems and look forward to assisting you in developing goals for your overall success. Much of my experience includes work in preventing or combatting stress, especially career or job-related issues, anxiety, relationship issues, addictions disorders and co-dependency, grief counseling, critical incident debriefing, and working to resolve issues surrounding physical disabilities or trauma. In the past year much of my work has included helping others deal with or prevent the negative impact of covid-19.
I tend to work in a solution-focused framework, helping remove immediate obstacles to allow further work on underlying or longterm issues. I also utilize Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, especially in working through addictions-based problems, to assist in dissolving irrational beliefs that may be holding a client back from fulfillment of goals and dreams. The atmosphere of sessions is one of acceptance and not of judgment for what may have brought a person to talk with me, or what has come before.
It takes courage to realize there is a problem requiring assistance and also to believe that the help is available. By tackling that step you have begun your journey. I would be honored to assist you along the way.

I always have to take a few minutes to contemplate how to write these. I believe Kenlo is down to earth and really understands my views. Often by simply working things differently than me, she directs me to look at things in such a way that I've made huge strides in progress toward mental wellness.
She has a kindness about that is soo warming !
She is absolutely fantastic!!! Makes each session comfortable and a breeze!!! She is great at making the subjects of the day flow easy and simple and i look forward to each session with her!!
Since starting my sessions with Kenlo McGowan, i have a greater understanding of my own behavior. She has been such a great help & such a blessing in my life. She very knowledgable, compassionate, & understanding. I trust her 1000% & would definitely recommend her to all my family & friends.
Kenlo is calm gives off a relaxing vibe which is nice. It makes it easier to talk because I feel comfortable.
Kenlo is absolutely wonderful. She is caring and compassionate. Her background is wide and diverse, which gives a range of knowledge to work from and make her a powerful source. She hears you and you will be encouraged and feel unferstood after a single session with her. I highly recommend her.
Kenlo has been very kind and understanding.
