About Me

Hello all! My name is Nakeisha McGee and I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have been in the field of mental health and substance abuse treatment, in theory or in practice, since 2005. I have managed school and community based programming and provided services for individuals, children, teens, those who have experienced varying types of trauma and those suffering from varying addictions both in patient and outpatient care. I also counsel couples and have been trained in the Prepare and Enrichment assessment in which I served as an Enrichment Feedback Coach.

I have utilized several different treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused CBT, Rational Emotive Therapy. The one I use most for couples therapy is Intersubjective Therapy, in which the client is the broken relationship and is the focus of treatment. Generally speaking, I have a laid back approach to therapy where my goal is to build a working relationship with you to see issues from your point of view. This is one of the best ways to guide you to your own version of healing and eliminates me "telling you what to do."

I look forward to working with and helping you along your journey to your next level of greatness. Let's change your world, one session at a time. :-)

Very respectful and truly understands where I want to work. She allows me to lead the conversation and can knows how to to get to the root of the issue! I’ve had several therapist before I never felt that I could laugh during my sessions but also go deep and uncover roots that are hidden

Nakeisha is so easy to connect with and I look forward to our sessions because I know that while she will be honest with me and confront me appropriately that we will have some fun moments as well.

Best therapist I could ever have wished or asked for! She was there for me every step up the way and continuously opened my eyes to certain things that were just flying by me. She was always timely with her calls and made me feel welcoming and ready to just spill all my life to her. She truly has changed my life and mindset for the better and I am so confident to take on my daily life and continue to thrive and build my foundation. I appreciate Nakeisha so much, and I will truly remember this experience forever!

This counselor is amazing. She continues to check up on me even when I feel like I don't particularly need counseling. She really cares and I can tell that she loves her job and what she's doing. I'm glad I found therapist that makes me feel safe and cared for. I dont know if I would have ever found that where I'm located out in town.

Written by E.L. on Apr 27, 2020 after therapy with Nakeisha for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Nakeisha listened to everything I had to say in a non judgemental manner whilst also offering me advice on how to restructure negative thought patterns whilst simultaneously helping me deal with other struggles I was having with relationships. I’ve had CBT before but I found that Nakeisha was more helpful as she explained to me the mechanisms behind why I think in certain ways due to my anxiety.

I like her and feel that she is helping me. The only problem I have is not being able to communicate with her on the weekends. Other than that I think she's great.

This has been the first time I have sought counseling. It has been a great process and Miss McGee has been great. The platform of being able to sit on my porch with a cup of coffee and just get it all out is awesome. Nakeisha has given me the assistance I was looking for.
