Announcement icon We're here for you in whatever way you feel comfortable - we are conducting both video and in-person sessions. Let us know what works best.
Macy (co-founder of Center for Mindful Families) is an Adoption-Competent therapist who is also an adoptee. She's passionate about providing therapy to teens & adults who need help navigating post-adoption issues, trauma, anxiety, grief, depression & stress from life's transitions. She also specializes in working with LGBTQ+ children, teens & adults. Parent coaching sessions are also an option if one is not sure if therapy is the answer. Macy recognizes people need a safe & accepting environment to learn about themselves & their relationships in order to succeed at identifying & addressing underlying causes of suffering.
Macy's guiding principle is that healing occurs within a relationship & she emphasizes the importance of relationships as a vital mechanism for change in a non-judgmental, strength-based environment. She works collaboratively with the client/families to help achieve therapeutic goals. Mindfulness plays an important role in all her therapeutic work.
Although her certification in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) informs her therapeutic process overall, she approaches therapy from a collaborative perspective & will personalize treatment to help clients/families achieve their therapeutic goals. Call or email today for a free 15 minute consultation.
