McClaren Hipp


A native of North Carolina, I earned a dual Bachelor's degree in Public Health and Spanish Literature through Elon University. I completed my Masters in Social Work through the University of Denver with a focus in clinical mental health and trauma. I have experience working with a variety of ages including children, adults, and families.

I also have training and experience in areas such as:

  • Anxiety 

  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Familial Conflict 

  • Suicide assessment, intervention, and prevention

I am also able to help individuals understand and cope with the following concerns:

  • Anger Management 

  • Bullying 

  • Communication

  • LGBTQ+  

  • Conflict Resolution

  • Family dynamics

  • Executive Functioning 

  • Life transitions 

  • Stress management

  • Conduct/Behavior Problems

  • Self acceptance 

  • Stress and coping skills 

  • Social Skills

  • Emotion regulation

  • Impulse control and Distress tolerance 

I am passionate about building connections and creating a strong therapeutic alliance with my clients.  I do this through a therapeutic approach that is client centered and strengths based. My approach is influenced by theories like Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Family Systems Therapy. I value each of my client’s uniqueness and being non-judgemental is very important to me. I am LGBTQ+ affirming and have experience working with children who are questioning their sexuality and/or gender. I enjoy working on skill building with my clients, and always want to know what they are hoping to learn in therapy. I look forward to connecting with you!
