Kinsey

Kinsey Pierre, LCSW

Clinical Supervisor

I currently work with individuals ages 5+ and couples. In therapy, I focus on each individual person’s strengths, needs and preferences. No two people are the same; I enjoy being creative in tailoring my approach to help clients meet their goals. I enjoy using various treatment techniques; most commonly you will find me using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), person-centered, and solution focused approaches. I am trained in Brainspotting, a treatment modality effective in treating trauma, and am currently pursuing national certification in Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I have received additional specialized training in the treatment of substance use disorders and enjoy treating dual diagnosis disorders.

I enjoy working with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, substance abuse, grief, relationship issues, anger management, immigration/cultural adjustment, pregnancy/prenatal and postpartum concerns, and stress. I have 10 years of experience in non-profit leadership, behavioral health therapy, and case management for various populations.

McKenna Garvey, APSW

Clinical Therapist

I work with clients of all ages and backgrounds. My counseling approach includes strengths-based and person-in-environment while applying cognitive-behavioral therapy. I believe that therapy is centered in rewriting narratives, empowerment, and advocacy.

I am also trained in Brain Spotting, which is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing, and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms, allowing for processing and healing which is deep, direct, and powerful, yet focused and containing.

My education is rooted in Psychology, Spanish, and Social Work. I have broad cultural experiences having lived in 24 countries and studied in South Africa and Spain. My professional experiences include psychotherapy, AODA treatment, refugee resettlement and reunification, domestic violence, and child bereavement in a variety of settings such as outpatient treatment, community centers, children’s camps, and international crises centers.

I am a LGBTQIA+ safe therapist with experience providing services for transgender individuals seeking transition, support, and resources.

My undergraduate and graduate studies consist of criminal justice, psychology, and social work. I work with clients ages 5+ and adults with a wide range of challenges. I incorporate a variety of therapeutic approaches for my interventions including strengths-based, person-centered, and solution focused and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I believe in taking a nonjudgmental approach that creates a safe space when collaborating with my clients to develop their own individualized treatment plan that best suits their needs.

I have experience working with children and youth at an intensive outpatient day treatment program, summer camp, private practice, and in-home settings. I specialize in working with the LGBTQ+ community from my experiences as an intern at the UWGB Pride Center, Director of the LGBT+ Center in Marinette, and therapist. I was a P.B. Poorman Award recipient in 2019 for Outstanding Achievement on Behalf of LGBTQ+ People and enjoy being a part of the transitioning process for transgender individuals.

Kat

Kathy Constantin, APSW

Clinical Therapist

I am a first-generation Haitian- American and bilingual in Creole. Throughout my personal and professional life, I have had the opportunity to learn from and experience many diverse populations. At the age of 14, I began working with the geriatric population in direct and indirect care. After high school, I acquired my BA in Marketing and Graphic Design. I later joined the US Army as a full-time active-duty solider specializing in missile repair mechanics. My military career brought me to the state of Wisconsin, where since I have lived for 6 years.

Since arriving in Wisconsin, I have involved myself within the community by volunteering with organizations that serve sexual assault and domestic violence victims. Through these experiences working in the community and my work experience, I ultimately pursued and obtained a Master of Social Work degree with an emphasis in clinical practice. Since then, I have worked with offender populations (primarily males), veterans, and the young adults. My formal training consists of various therapeutic styles such as Cognitive Behavioral Thinking (CBT), Thinking for a Change (T4C), trauma informed care (TIC), and teaching reinforcement around resiliency and coping with stress. My methods of use include, journaling, drawing, exercising, music application, interactive learning, and free form expression.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my son, friends and engaging in activities that are about food and art and when the time calls for it- often travel. On my own, I enjoy a good walk on the trails and evening to kick back and work on a Lego set.

Trisha Picard, LCSW

Clinical Therapist

My counseling approach is grounded in the belief that all people possess the potential for growth and the ability to recover from adversity. I currently work with individuals age 15 and older, and have specialized training in grief support, working with caregivers, and working with aging populations. I most commonly utilize cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness approaches through a person-centered and strength-based lens. I am also trained in brainspotting, a powerful technique that combines brain-based and talk therapies.  My ten years of experience in nonprofit, residential, outpatient, and community settings have allowed me to work with a variety of complex issues ranging from depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma/PTSD, domestic violence, grief and loss, dementia, and family conflict.

As your therapist I want you to feel empowered, understood, and supported, but also challenged to move forward toward your goals. I enjoy collaborating and walking with clients as they gain insight, build new skills, and learn to manage life’s stressors.

Chloe Anderson Kemp, LCSW

Clinical Therapist

I currently work with individuals ages 4+ and adults from any backgrounds with an array of challenges. I approach counseling from a trauma informed, anti-oppression, strength-based lens. I am someone who treats clients like the experts that they are of themselves. Through my training and background, I have a special focus in LGBTQIA+ individuals and children. My goal in supporting youth and their families is to provide psychoeducation while encouraging caregivers and supports to create the opportunity for validation, open dialogue, and autonomy.

I use various treatment techniques, but most commonly I use person-centered, solution focused, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I am also trained in Brainspotting, a treatment modality effective in treating trauma. In addition to outpatient work, I have experience doing intensive in-home systemic therapy for children and their families, in-home therapy for children on the Autism Spectrum, in-home respite care for children with different abilities, and group work with LGBTQIA+ youth. In my six years of experience in nonprofit, private practice, schools, in homes, and community settings I have experience working with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, bipolar disorder, grief, anger and stress management, relational issues, and parental needs.
