Our Team

Karen H Senecal-Davis, NcPsyA 

Supervisor, Psychotherapist

I am a queer-identified therapist who is sex-positive and affirmative, and I have extensive expertise in issues facing trans, gender non-conforming, and/or LGBQ+ individuals. For parents of LGBTQ+ children and adolescents, I offer a supportive environment in which to explore the myriad feelings that can arise. I am committed to being an anti-racist clinician.

My approach is psychodynamic and interpersonal. Whether you are entering therapy to answer questions about how you operate in the world, or are looking to develop new ways of coping, the therapeutic relationship we develop together will bring you closer to yourself and the life you want. In our work together, we uncover and come to understand your unconscious drives and motivations. I will help you to ask questions of yourself – deep and profound questions that help you to move below the surface. I will also help you expand your emotional tools and skills whether you are in a situational crisis or on a longer journey to recover from past trauma. While we engage in this important work, I will strive to help you feel accepted, held, contained, safe, and respected, so that you can internalize the insights you gain through therapy and feel capable of reaching your goals in life, empowered to handle the conflict and crisis that will inevitably arise.

Karen completed a five-year training in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies, and has been in private practice since 2013
