Staff Therapist




My passion has always been families and children of all ages, providing both individual and family therapies. I have worked in home and community-based settings as well as schools. This work has given me extensive experience working with trauma, abuse, grief, PTSD, mood and adjustment disorders, as well as eating disorders and autism. I have a special place in my heart for teenage girls and feel that my therapeutic modality is especially beneficial to them.

I like to use a holistic approach with person-centered and strength-based strategies. This allows for the use of expressive therapies which give the client the opportunity to communicate in the manner that is most appropriate for them. Using tactile, visual, or auditory approaches gives clients freedom to express themselves effectively and authentically.

I have 15 years of experience as a psychologist including working with children, adolescents and families providing psychological testing, and crisis intervention. I previously served as diagnostic supervisor at an outpatient agency where I provided consultation services for the juvenile court system and Children’s Protective Services.

I specialize in childhood/adolescent mental health issues, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder parenting issues, divorce issues with children, self-esteem, peer relationships, Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorders, and psychological assessments. I provide individual therapy for children, adolescents and adults ages 6 to 50.

New to the staff!

Hi, I’m Cassie and I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I work to provide an environment of safety and comfort within a world of uncertainties while empowering individuals of all ages to connect with their inner strength and rewrite a future of hope.

When working with adults I use a variety of creative, therapeutic approaches with an emphasis on the concepts of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. These approaches are helpful in addressing issues including anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive behavior, low self-esteem, sexuality concerns, and the effects of trauma. I love to incorporate play therapy techniques when working with children in order to address issues of trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, and a variety of developmental challenges.

As my client or parent or caregiver of a client, you can expect to be treated with respect. You will be given the opportunity to authentically share your story in a nonjudgmental environment. We will work together as a team and lean into the power and strength you already possess in order to build your confidence and reach your goals.
