Donovan McCain, MEd, LPCA, NCC, Counselor in Cary
There are times when life's struggles can seem overwhelming, impossible, and impassable. Even for strong and capable individuals. At such a time it can be helpful to have an outside perspective to help bring life back into balance and focus. As a therapist, I am trained from a Person-Centered perspective which means I am here to empower you. I work with both children and adults and have assisted a wide spectrum of individuals, some who are looking for insight on life, education, or career, to those who have experienced trauma.
Much of my work with clients has been spent helping with issues such as depression, anxiety, spiritual struggles, ADHD, stress, sexual abuse, body image, and LGBT issues. I specialize in working with young-adult and college-aged individuals as well as families and at-risk youth.
I try to tailor your counseling experience to your needs as a client. This may include using a variety of therapeutic tools and methods. To this end, I often use or draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-based approaches, Meditation/Guided Visualization, and Creative/Expressive Arts.
