Katherine Mejia

Bilingual

My name is Dr. Katherine Mejia and I am a bilingual pre-licensed psychologist. I have a Doctorate of Philosophy in Counseling Psychology (PhD) from the University at Buffalo.

Throughout my years of working in the mental health field, I have gained extensive experience in working with individuals from all walks of life and dealing with a myriad of concerns. What has become abundantly clear is that no two people are alike, and no two experiences are ever the same.

I am dedicated to helping clients navigate challenging times in their lives while honoring the importance of multiculturalism and intersectionality and understanding the complex interplay between culture, identity, and mental well-being.

I work with clients to explore the ways in which these intersecting identities shape their experiences and challenges. This inclusive approach allows for a comprehensive understanding of the client’s unique perspective and facilitates a more tailored and effective therapeutic process.

If you are seeking support during challenging times in your life and value a therapist who embraces the importance of multiculturalism, intersectionality, and the role they play within your lived experiences I am here to provide guidance, empathy, and a safe space for exploration. Together, we can navigate your journey toward healing and personal growth while honoring the unique aspects of your identity.

Carolina Faulkner

LSW-Bilingual

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Master’s in Psychology from the American Military University. My experience includes working with the University of Washington in Early Childhood Education, along with having worked in various school districts providing support to families and children as a Family Advocate. I have also worked as a crisis response behavioral health clinician with at risk youth and families through Wraparound with Intensive Services (WISe). I am experienced in working with families from diverse communities, and have focused on supporting the development of positive communication skills and family strengths. My goal is to support youth and families identify their individual strengths. By highlighting individual strengths, it will be possible for the youth and family to think about their goals in an encouraging, positive and realistic manner that fits best for their own lives and helps build them up. I focus on supporting families in learning skills to improve communication and expectation as it refers to their individual needs and growth since each family has their own needs and their own strengths. When working with clients I utilize approaches that are individualized for the individual needs. I believe each individual has the potential to achieve their goals so let’s create a safe space to explore, learn and grow as part of the journey to your own personal success.

Courtney Hirsch

I use an interactive approach, working together with each client to establish and decide what their goals are for treatment.

I provide my clients with a considerate and distinct viewpoint by carefully referencing my personal experiences and relationships. I have worked in schools, courts, correctional facilities, hospitals, day treatment centers, therapeutic foster homes, residential treatment centers, and provided home-based services. Working with kids, teens, adults, couples, and families is something I enjoy doing. Stress management and self-care, depression and anxiety, major life transitions, relationship problems, trauma and PTSD, bereavement and loss, behavior modification, and self-esteem are some of my professional interests and areas of expertise. I provide a variety of professional and clinical experiences that strengthen my abilities as a therapist who seeks to empower people. I hold the following degrees and qualifications: B.A. in Sociology with a focus in Criminal Justice; M.A. in Psychology with a certificate in Psychological Assessment & Ed.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis.
