I’m Tara McKernan, M.Ed, LCPC-c, counselor for Mount Desert Elementary School. I have been in the education field for 17 years. The first 15 years I was a special education teacher. After getting my Master’s degree in clinical counseling I switched to my current job as a school based mental health therapist. In addition to my work at MDES I have a small private practice in Hull’s Cove.
When not working I love to spend time with my husband Mike and son Liam. Reading, running, yoga, camping, skiing and hiking are my go-to activities. If I could I would also see live music every weekend of the year. There are always goals to strive for!
