Mackenzie Boothe, LPC

in Our Team

Life is an amazing gift, but it doesn’t come without its challenges. Sometimes we just hit a bump in the road and we need some help to get over it. Sometimes that bump is a hardship we didn’t expect, such as a serious life change, and sometimes that bump is a difficult or traumatic childhood that we never truly dealt with. You may find yourself struggling in relationships, feeling bad about yourself, having outbursts, or experiencing self-doubt. You may have even asked, What’s wrong with me? Why am I so stuck?

You don’t have to be stuck anymore. I specialize in treating clients with depression, anxiety, anger issues, trauma and PTSD, dissociation, and adjustment issues related to life changes such as divorce, pregnancy and motherhood, grief, and relationship difficulties. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you challenge the negative thought patterns that effect your day-to-day; Strength-Based approach which uses your gifts and qualities to address the problems you face; and Eye Movement Integration (EMI) for processing anxieties, phobias, and traumatic memories. I have been trained in many different modalities, and love to cater to each client’s unique needs and personality.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Virginia, and am in the process of becoming an  Associate Licensed Counselor (ALC) in the state of Alabama, under the supervision of Holly Walker, LPC-S. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in criminology and sociology from the Ohio State University and a Master’s Degree in professional counseling from Liberty University. I am certified in practicing Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I primarily see adolescents and adults.

I believe that we were not meant to walk this life alone. I am warm, accepting, and honest, and it’s my privilege to walk through the hard times with others, and lend some hope and encouragement.
