Katherine Estevez, LMHC

Superviseur clinique

Ma formation comprend un baccalauréat en développement humain de l'Université SUNY Binghamton et une maîtrise en conseil en santé mentale de l'Université SUNY Albany. J'ai commencé ma carrière en 2015 en tant que conseillère en toxicomanie. Le conseil est le passage pour aider mes clients à apprendre des solutions à leurs problèmes. Avec une approche interactive, chaleureuse et accueillante, j'ai aidé les clients à trouver une perception saine d'eux-mêmes. Aucune approche unique n'est la bonne pour tout le monde, et j'ai donc été formé à diverses modalités, notamment l'entretien motivationnel, la TCC et la REBT, entre autres.

Natalie Schettini, LMHC


Through my time as a research assistant aiding to conduct studies on the effects of racial discrimination, I became motivated to be a direct support for those in need of mental health resources. As a child of Black immigrants, I believe in the importance of being able to provide clients with a counselor who is culturally sensitive. I make it my primary mission to foster a warm environment with a client first in order to ensure safety and trust. I promote a safe healing environment for individuals of diverse cultural backgrounds using CBT and Psychodynamic Therapy. We will work on creating your best self by learning triggers, accepting the past, and incorporating coping skills in order to overcome emotional distress. I have experience counseling teenagers, young and middle-aged adults. I have helped clients manage their anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship conflict, and other life stressors.

Breanna Hira, MHC-LP

I have experience working with groups and individuals. I worked for 2 years at a clinic where I helped adults of all ages with numerous different backgrounds and life experiences. My goal is to utilize the best therapy techniques based on your needs. I try to take a person-centered approach; this means you are in charge of your treatment. For example, I will never push skills or conversations on you that you know won't be helpful. I will never guarantee a skill will work, I feel it's my job to educate you, encourage you to try new things, with the awareness that some things do not work for everyone. My specialties include DBT, CBT, Art Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Somatic Therapy. I understand I am not the right therapist for everyone but I will always give you 100 percent of what I have to offer. Breanna is being supervised by Katherine Estevez.
