Mary Kathryn Kuehnert is from Morganton, North Carolina and has resided in Greenville, South Carolina since 2015. She earned her undergraduate degree in Theological Studies from Covenant College, and her graduate degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wake Forest University, where she graduated with highest distinction. She applies the same level of intentionality, respect, and diligence she put forth in her academic career, to her vocational work as a psychotherapist.

Outside the office, Mary Kathryn enjoys trail running, spending time with friends and family, taking trips to the NC mountains and SC lowcountry, reading across genres, and studying all things brain-related.

Mary Kathryn’s therapeutic approach is deeply embedded in a person-centered framework, thus meeting her clients with empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard. Mary Kathryn believes in the holistic use of informed, integrative, and evidence-based clinical treatment planning, and thus tailors her work to the needs of each client, primarily utilizing the following treatment modalities:

  • Biopsychosocial(spiritual) assessments
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
  • Psychodynamic Therapy (PDT)
  • Internal Family Systems (IFS)
  • Narrative Therapy

As Mary Kathryn works with her clients, she keeps this poem close to her heart:

Harbor Thoughts
Far in the back of his mind he harbors thoughts
like small boats in a quiet cove
ready to set sail at a moment’s notice.
I, seated on his starboard side,
listen for the winds of change
ready to lift anchor with him
and explore the choppy waves of reality ahead.

Counseling requires a special patience
best known to seamen and navigators,
courses are only charted for times
when the tide is high and breezes steady.

Samuel T. Gladding
