Vicki Tornetta, MA, NCC, LPC

About Vicki

We all have experienced being evaluated solely on our outward appearances: the job we hold, the school we attend, our physical appearance, in other words, by the masks we wear. However, in all relationships what is most important is to see the person in front of you as a unique individual created in the image of God.

I strive to create a space where you are safe and feel safe, so you can be vulnerable, transparent, and authentic. Allowing you to honestly explore your deepest issues.  I believe that the counseling relationship is critical to the healing process. I strive to create a warm, genuine, understanding and safe environment, while using evidence-based treatments rooted in a Biblical worldview.

McKenzie Severe

About McKenzie

McKenzie joined Vicki Tornetta Counseling at the end of 2023. She graduated from Cairn University with her MS in Counseling and is now working toward obtaining her LPC. Once she graduated, she went on to work as a family-based therapist, doing intensive in-home treatment of children and their families and then transitioned into working in a private practice setting.

McKenzie has experience providing counseling for couples, family, and individuals for people of all ages. She has worked with a variety of mental health issues which include but are not limited to parental-child conflict, couples conflict, other relational issues, anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, trauma, and stress. McKenzie is especially passionate about walking with people as they navigate issues pertaining to their relationship with God if this is an expressed desire of the client. We all go through times where doubt, anger, fear, etc. creeps in and wrecks our understanding and relationship with Him. We all need a safe place to express our spiritual struggles, process them, to be gently challenged, and experience change in these areas. McKenzie strives to build the kind of relationship with her clients for this to happen in the therapeutic setting.
