Chynna earned a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from Missouri State University and practices as a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor. During her undergraduate and graduate studies, Chynna trained in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) with an emphasis in diversity, women’s issues, mindfulness, college students, behavioral disorders, and social issues. She concentrates on individual counseling working with preteens, teens, and adults. In addition to ACT, Chynna utilizes evidenced-based practices including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR).
Chynna strives to connect with her clients through compassion, openness, and exploration into what makes their lives truly meaningful. Her therapeutic aspirations are to aid her clients in embracing their challenges with curiosity and workability while turning them towards self-compassion, emotional freedom, and a fulfilling life unique to them. The stance she takes as a therapist is radical acceptance toward suffering and triumphs, while determining to align oneself with their values; orienting them towards what matters for them to live their lives to their fullest potential.
