Philosophy:

My approach to therapy is based on my belief in the opportunity for healing that can occur in the relationship between client and therapist.

A genuine respect and focus on the uniqueness of each client’s experience is at the heart of my practice. I believe that true healing can occur in relationship where safety and acceptance is established and maintained. Through our work together, a client has the opportunity to explore and experiment with new ways of being as they journey to defining and finding the path to their most authentic, fulfilling self. It is a place to safely explore all that it means to be human.

Debra Brosan (she/her), MA OD, ICF MCC

Client Focus:

  • Organizations
  • Executive and Leadership Coaching

Philosophy:

My philosophy as a coach and consultant is to simply create space for change, to influence and be aware of urges to control and direct.  By creating space for change, trust and experimentation occurs naturally. Our work together always happens within a context, in the environment, and in a system. When I think about systems, I focus on organizational needs and impacts. 

Coaching is a learning process. In order to achieve business goals, learning is needed.  Real time reflection on the experiences of the leader and coach in the coaching process creates awareness that fosters learning. Curiosity is essential. Questioning, exploring, and experimenting are the ways we raise awareness. Through this process of increasing awareness, the opportunities for higher levels of engagement and productivity are possible. This can impact multiple levels within the system.

Gina Carfagno (she/her), MSS, LSW

Client Focus:

  • Teenagers (13-18)
  • Individuals/Adults (18+)

Philosophy:

My passion in life is helping others. I strive to form strong relationships that set the foundation for secure attachment and trustworthy contact. I firmly believe that our connection is life-long and sacred.

I approach therapy by focusing on client strengths and utilize Gestalt Therapy techniques that treat the whole person and honor the importance of the field within the client’s daily life.

I help clients identify interruptions of contact, and support ways to work through and grow from their understandings of how creative adjustments, interruptions of contact and the field all come together to impact daily life encounters, as well as their own thought processes and emotions.

I invite clients to join my present-centered focus, recognizing the best opportunities for growth invite staying in touch with oneself in the present moment. As a Gestalt therapist, I also invite clients to tap into experiential experiments that are often thinking outside the box as ways of helping clients work through challenging issues related to depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, relationship issues, healing attachment conflicts, self-harm behaviors and suicidality. My passion and ultimate goal is to provide all clients with safe, humane, understanding and supportive environments, and to remind them of their integrity and worth.

  • Individuals/Adults (18+)
  • Couples
  • LGBTQ+ affirming
  • Therapy and Trauma Informed Yoga Sessions

Philosophy:

I’m here to help you notice what you’re feeling, to name sensations and emotions and to be with you as we see what emerges: patterns, memories, long-held beliefs that have maybe never been yours. These things contain your past and will influence your future; but we’ll access them together in the present. 


We’ll find ways for you to have more flexibility and choice in how your respond to them.We’ll get curious together. We might move around a little (but we don’t have to). We can use EMDR to get to the root of deeply distressing patterns. We’ll probably breathe, or at least notice if we stop breathing. 

This is the brave work of moving fully into your life. It’s big stuff, and I’m so honored to do it with you.

Gary Gray (he,him), MAT, Certified Gestalt Coach

Client Focus:

  • Individuals/Adults (18+)
  • Groups
  • Families

Philosophy:

My job is to listen to you and learn what is remarkable and wonderful about you in the world, to urge you to see yourself as remarkable and wonderful and to help you discover what is preventing you from being fully engaged in your life.  

I believe that wellbeing is enhanced by our ability to be more fully in the here and now. Healing happens when we become aware of how our stories are affecting us right now. We do have to delve into our painful stories but the stories were then and the guilt, anger, sadness and resentment are here and now. 

I give my attention to what you say and how you say it. It is not my job to search for hidden, unconscious implications of what you say. I cannot know you by studying the various isolated parts of your life but by getting to know you as a complicated whole person and attending to the relationship of the parts to the whole. I believe this process of discovering, owning and embracing self is the path to healing and growth.

Laura Hawley (she/her), LCSW, Lic Acupuncturist

Client Focus:

  • Individuals/Adults (18+)
  • Supervision Group(s)
  • LGBTQI
  • Caregiving Professionals

Philosophy:

My approach in therapy is to recognize the other person as whole and to move with them toward recognizing their own wholeness. I have great confidence in people’s ability to move toward a state of balance and health. I draw on Antiracist, Presence, Gestalt, Somatic and Feminist practices. My focus is on the treatment of adults of all genders.


I cultivate compassion, creativity and responsibility with and in the clients I see. We work hard, but kindly, looking at patterns of thought, emotion, energy and action that are stuck in some way – making it difficult to have ease and stability or to make personal or professional transitions.

One of my interests is in care giving, burnout and personal history that may complicate the caregiving role. Past trauma, as well as difficulties inherent in caregiving professions can set people up for personal unhappiness, exhaustion and professional burnout. And yet, there is a lot of energy and potential bound up in this suffering. I am inspired by the unfolding I have witnessed in the people I work with, the unfolding of self confidence, self expression and the enhanced ability to love, work, play and thrive.

I have been studying Gestalt Therapy for over 50 years, and I still love it. It is a wonderful strength-based, positive approach developed from many schools of thought.

Other interests of mine include: trauma, addictions, major human loss and clinical uses of humor. I am proud to be part of the GTIP community.

Philosophy:

I believe therapy is based on the relationship between therapist and client where the client is the expert on their own lives.

My goal is to provide a collaborative, non-judgmental space where you can work to discover areas of your life where you would like to change, grow, and gently uncover your true self.

I offer two supervision groups per year that are based in developmental somatic and Gestalt theory, with the goal of helping clinicians truly be present with whatever is arising for their clients in any given moment, without desiring to change anything. It is from this place of acceptance that healing can begin.

Philosophy:

At each moment we are in a process of evolving from who we have been to who we are becoming. I engage with my clients using an experiential, dialogical and integrative approach to self-discovery and personal growth. 

Through compassionate understanding, confirmation of each persons’ uniqueness, attention to present-moment experience and heightened awareness, we can complete what is unfinished from the past, giving way to our emerging creative selves. Understanding how processes can function to sustain disruptive patterns, as well as challenge and support the possibilities for creative problem-solving, can lead to deliberate actions that transform relationships between people, and between people and organizations.

Philosophy:

I love the way Gestalt Therapy provides an understanding and deep respect for the self and other people and teaches how to respect the other person in all their difference and likeness. After using and teaching other theories, including object relations, I’m so impressed

how well Gestalt Therapy, with its attention to a somatic and phenomenological approach, works with my clients. I learn from my clients, and I rarely have one leave before they feel real progress. I try to use Gestalt philosophy for my own satisfaction with my life and relationships.

Naomi Wilansky (she/her), MSS, LCSW, BCD

Client Focus:

  • Individuals/Adults (18+)

Philosophy:

We all have parts of self that are either well integrated or not well integrated. Not well integrated parts have competing agendas and are causing conflicts that result in behaviors that we don’t intend or want. The parts of self with competing agendas are more likely formed because of unmet needs through our development; whether because of abuse, neglect or well-meaning caregivers who for one reason or another aren’t able to meet our needs.

The work of therapy is about raising awareness to the unwanted, unintended behaviors (incongruence), and maybe to the source of them so that we are able to make well-informed decisions, accept all of our feelings as valid, adapt to situations that we can’t change and function as the inter-dependent, responsible, joyous, flexible adults that we are.
