Danielle Kornacki, LMHC

As a psychotherapist, I believe in the importance of working collaboratively with clients to highlight their strengths while applying problem-solving techniques and providing psychoeducation as a basis for my therapeutic work. I pride myself on my ability to make a positive and meaningful impact in a client’s life while utilizing an empathetic approach that fosters trust.

My approach to therapy is flexible and draws on a broad range of different therapeutic modalities, including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, motivational enhancement, and relational.

My previous clinical experience includes providing individual therapy in both outpatient and acute inpatient settings. I have worked with clients who struggle with a variety of challenges, such as those experiencing substance abuse issues, persons living through mental health problems and/or the consequences of a life event such as trauma. In addition, I have assisted clients in navigating relationship conflict, provided support to clients facing major life changes, and helped individuals in working through academic or occupational stressors. I also take an interest in working to address maternal mental health and the challenges faced by women as they embark through motherhood, which includes perinatal mental health, infertility counseling, and working to enhance a client’s ability to cope with stressors associated with motherhood.

I understand that making the decision to enter therapy is a very personal decision and not always an easy one at that. Some of the concerns faced by clients can include not knowing where to start or what to expect from the therapeutic process, dealing with the stigma associated with mental health treatment, deciding if one’s struggles warrant therapy, and evaluating whether they have the time and/or energy to commit to treatment. However, taking the first step towards growth shows courage, inner strength, and a commitment to evoking change. I look forward to the opportunity to hear your story and to help you meet your goals.

Lindsay Veillette, LICSW

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I received my MSW from Fordham University in 2016. I have experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings with a variety of populations including adults and adolescents with serious mental illness, mood disorders, substance use disorders, family and relationship issues, trauma backgrounds, individuals in crisis, and those navigating general life changes and stressors.

My approach to therapy is holistic, collaborative, and client-centered with a strong focus on strengths. I firmly believe in meeting individuals where they are at in the present moment, and I acknowledge that progress is not always linear.

I incorporate elements of Mindfulness, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy into my practice with a common goal of empowering individuals to advocate for their needs in all facets of life.

I believe that we are never finished products and there is always room for personal growth. My aim is to partner with clients on their journey to self-determination in order to lead happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives.

Tessa Hayes, LMHC

A graduate of Lesley University’s Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counselling and Expressive Arts Therapies, Tessa Hayes (she/her/hers) holds licensure as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Massachusetts and national recognition as a Registered Art Therapist (ATR) through the Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB). Tessa’s framework is informed by cultural humility, ethical integrity, and attachment-focused trauma-sensitive art therapy. She approaches each individual she works with from a strengths-based, context-relevant perspective, taking special consideration for the interplay between the individual and their larger systems. Tessa has experience utilizing attuned presence to work towards providing a safe holding space for processing, coping, and healing in response to refugee transitions, prior incarceration, homelessness, individuals navigating LGBTQ identities, domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, chronic pain and illness, PTSD, self-harming, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar and Mood disorders, and neuro-diverse needs. She has a depth and breadth of experience working with individuals and communities across the lifespan with a range of unique strengths and needs which has provided opportunity to carefully consider power dynamics inherent in the therapeutic relationship. As an artist, she enjoys exploring the connections among memory and symbolism, mind-body sensation and perception, and art-making as a tool for self-regulation, healing.

Statement of Care: “I offer traditional talk therapy, as well as art therapy, utilizing the therapeutic working alliance to work towards providing a safe space in which to hold difficult moments, learn to further attune with internal wisdom, rewire old patterns that no longer serve, and amplify a sense of well-being. I am honored to support and witness your journey towards feeling empowered to manifest the life you imagine.”

Jessica Caira, LMHC

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience in the field. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Brandeis University and a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Lesley University. I work to create a safe space and tailor treatment to each client’s needs. I believe that building a therapeutic relationship is the first step in effective treatment, and will do my best to make you feel as comfortable as possible as we delve into whatever may be troubling you.

My eclectic style is influenced by cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), with a strength-based, client-centered, relational approach. I believe in adding skills, building insight, and enhancing your sense of identity to help you cope with your most difficult times. I specialize in building self-esteem and resilience, and will support you in nurturing positive relationships that will foster continued growth outside of therapy.

My previous experience includes working with adolescents and families in residential treatment, and outpatient work with both adults and adolescents. I bring with me extensive experience working with DMH and DCF involved youth, and am comfortable advocating for my clients in a variety of systems. I treat a wide array of mental health concerns, including anxiety, stress management, identity issues, transition to adulthood, mood disorders, depression, adjustment disorders, family and relationship issues, trauma, and substance use.
