Meredith Carter, LICSW
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

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.

Prioritizing your mental health should be just as important as being physically healthy. The first step to doing so is finding a therapist that best fits you. As a therapist, my first goal is to establish a therapeutic relationship based on trust and support.

Since 2015, I have been working with teens, young adults, and adults with a variety of mental health issues. I specialize in trauma, substance use, developmental disabilities, and those with behavioral problems throughout all aspects of life's challenges. I also use an array of different evidence-based treatment interventions such as CBT, solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and play therapy using a client-focused, strength-based perspective.

I support clients to navigate through any obstacle/challenge life has presented, through working collaboratively with individuals to build empowerment, and resiliency.
