Elizabeth McKay


Mental Health Therapist in Counseling Center

Hello! I am so happy to work with students at Gustavus. I have 19 years of experince working in the mental health field. I graduated with my B.A. from St. Olaf College, and have completed two Master's degrees; one at Pace University in New York, and one at Minnesota State University, Mankato. I am a licensed social worker in the state of Minnesota. I have been very lucky to have worked with wonderful coworkers and clients both in New York and Minnesota. I am trained in a trauma-based therapy called EMDR, as well as other therapies. I enjoy working with college students as there are so many transitions that happen in the college years. I work with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, interpersonal problems, family, couples, stress, and identity development. The Counseling Center represents a safe, friendly, confidential place to help students. I hope to meet you!
