Elisha "El" McNally, B.A.

Practicum II Masters Student



My experience in the Mental Health field began began as a technician at an inpatient treatment center in Minnesota. I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Concordia University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Then, I completed an undergraduate internship at an inpatient treatment center in Nashville, Tennessee where I worked with young adults going through difficult life transitions into adulthood.

Current Roles

My role at the UNC Counseling Center includes 1:1 therapy for individuals.

Therapeutic Approach

I am learning and growing into my theoretical approach. Currently, my counseling style is collaborative, person centered, and a holistic approach integrating the mind, body, and soul. I believe you know yourself best through your own perspective. My help will consist of focusing on the present moment experiences bringing past experiences into your present. I believe in creating a space where you can openly share your experiences and struggles without judgment and with empathy. Together, we will connect your mind, body, and soul and work through your healing process to increase the quality of your life. My hope is to help students feel intrinsically empowered, find meaning in their lives, and create a sense of wholeness within themselves.

Clinical Interests

Life Transitions, Mindfulness Work, Depression, Anxiety, Emerging Adulthood, and Self-Esteem Issues
