Meredith Carter, LCSW
I believe that everyone is worthy of health and happiness. My approach is based on helping people identify and achieve their goals by increasing knowledge, mitigating or removing barriers to wellness, and updating perspectives that no longer serve them. In order to help you understand yourself more fully, we will look at building your knowledge around the symptoms, treatments and contexts of things that are impacting your happiness.
Using evidence-based approaches, I like to collaborate with people to prioritize ways to start making changes, right away, and practice the skills needed to let go of things that are beyond your control.
I believe in listening compassionately, identifying themes and gently challenging ideals and perspectives do not promote your growth and joy. Let's work together to help you achieve your wellness goals

I work with clients using a strengths based and client centered approach that builds upon a trusting therapeutic relationship.

Patch Tseng-Putterman, LCSW
Perhaps you're coming to therapy with a clear picture of your challenges and goals. Or maybe you know only that something is off, and the things you've tried so far haven't quite worked. However it is that you come to treatment, I will work with you to identify and untangle the roots of your obstacles.
My approach to therapy focuses on the sibling powers of story and relationship. The stories we hold about ourselves and the world can constrict and they can liberate. The relationships we live in (past and present) are sites for both injury and healing. I work with clients to pay attention to the here-and-now of therapy as a point of entry to learn about how your stories are operating in your life, and to open up space for new possibilities.
I bring a loving, informed, and critical lens on cultural trauma and systemic power dynamics to my work with clients of all identities. I believe that effective therapy enables change on more than one level: the deep stuff that forms the bedrock of our lives and shifts slowly over time, and the everyday maintenance and repair skills we use to stay afloat. I'm committed to supporting my clients with both.
Heather Morin, LMFT
When children are struggling, one of the hardest things for the adults in their lives can be a child's inability to verbalize what is bothering them. Children, especially young children, communicate primarily through their play and behaviors. As a therapist working primarily with children, I incorporate play therapy and expressive arts techniques into my treatment in order to meet children where they are at. In my six years of doing therapy with children, and from my training as a family therapist, I have come to understand how critical parents and caregivers are in the treatment process. I view my role both as a facilitator of children expressing and processing their emotions as well as a coach for parents to help them understand what their children are communicating and how to respond in the most helpful ways. Helping children with emotional difficulties is a team activity.

Dina Silva, LMHC
Therapy can be an effective treatment for many of life's difficulties. That is why it is important to choose the right therapist, someone you trust who makes you feel cared for and has the experience to help you make changes for the better in your life. I work with children, adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, ADHD, self-esteem issues, life transitions, adjustment disorder, disturbance of conduct, family relationship problems, reactive attachment disorder, Autism, behavior challenges, and individuals who have experienced emotional trauma. I speak Spanish, Portuguese, and Cape Verdean Creole.
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as one of my primary approaches . Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps you learn new ways of coping, communicating, and thinking. It is important to learn better ways of handling our emotions and problems. There are strategies you can learn that will be essential for progress and change. In addition to talk therapy, I use techniques from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
One of my specialties is Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which is a type of behavioral therapy to help youth overcome the negative effects of trauma. The goal of TF-CBT is to provide psychoeducation to both the child and parents; teaching them healthier ways to cope with the emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that come from their trauma.
I strive to create a calm and supportive environment (with some humor and fun mixed in) that allows for open and safe communication. I look forward to connecting with you and finding out if we are a good match. I create an environment which promotes safety and comfort in a way that is respectful and helpful. I work with the client at their own pace and we decide together what goals they want to address.
