Professional statement

Kiara McNair is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in Jacksonville, FL, who works with individuals across the lifespan, with a focus on professional women. Many of her clients have found great success in their careers or academically, but struggle to feel connected in their relationships or at peace in their daily lives. Kiara is particularly sensitive to clients facing moments of transition, like a move to the city, job loss, or breakup, when the delicate balance can seem to tremble, and symptoms of anxiety, depression, and self-doubt can emerge.

Kiara’s approach is rooted in Narrative Therapy, an evidence-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how unhealthy narratives impact their relationships with themselves and others, and create new narratives to enhance their lives. She works to help clients understand their physical response to external stressors, and begin to problem-solve ways to introduce moments of calm, to choose to respond rather than react in the face of change.

Kiara is focused on ensuring that her clients see real progress: her style is interactive, non-judgmental, and positions clients as the experts on where they are now, and where they want to go. A Marriage and Family Therapist, Kiara is sensitive to the influence of past experiences and upbringing on present challenges, and works closely with clients to reframe the narrative of their life in a way that increases self-confidence and compassion.

Kiara’s first priority in starting with a new client is ensuring that they feel safe, heard, and like an equal partner in the therapeutic process. As a seasoned telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy a core component of your self-care calendar.
