POSITIVE GROWTH: HOW YOU BENEFIT
At My Therapy ConnectionTM, we’re constantly focused on growth.
Not just growth for its own sake, but growth with purpose.
For those whom we serve, that means being assured of the very best professional guidance to help ensure personal growth, healing, equipping, empowerment, and awakening to exuberant new possibilities.
For us, it means carefully and consistently adding to our range of offerings. Why? So you get the benefit of the latest and most effective therapy modalities available – which in turn helps us stay at the forefront of our fields of specialty.
And, with that in mind, we understand that finding the right therapist for you involves more than just checking some boxes. Therapy is a deeply human field of service, and it requires authentic human connection. After all, you’re far more likely to benefit from therapy if you like, trust, and resonate with the professional you’re consulting.
At My Therapy ConnectionTM, we offer professionalism and expertise. We also offer insight, empathy, and intuitiveness – and they’re all interlinked. Our therapists are attuned to your social and personal preferences, so you’re assured of getting the very best counseling available for your unique needs.
Tailored for You
With that in mind, we’d like to welcome our newest therapists – and encourage you to reach out should you wish to consult with any of them.
Rachel Verdi, MA, LPAT
We’re delighted to welcome Licensed Professional Art Therapist Rachel Verdi to our team. Not only is Rachel highly experienced in treating couples and adults, but she now also offers Art Therapy across all age groups – including young children and teens. What makes Art Therapy so exciting? Well, not only is it a participative way to communicate more easily in a therapeutic context, but it’s a powerful medium of connection within a creative and stress-free environment.
Art Therapy is also extremely helpful in situations where verbal communication may be difficult, or where someone might be too young to adequately express their experiences and emotions using just words. Rachel also specializes in working gently and effectively with children on the Autism Spectrum through play.

Kristine’s approach to therapy is characterized by kindness, compassion, and shared mindfulness that encourages trust and openness.
Caitlin Alford, LSW
Caitlin is a vastly experienced Licensed Social Worker who offers a holistic range of strengths-based and individually tailored counseling modalities. She is particularly skilled at helping clients work through self-limiting issues like poor self-esteem, anxiety, trauma, negative thought patterns – or even just feelings of being constantly ‘stuck’ or insecure.
