Who Are We?

Carrie Mazzei, CYW, RP

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with over 18 years of experience working with children, youth and their families. I use an integrative, humanistic approach with each child, youth, family, and individual I work with. I don’t believe in a one size fits all approach and believe that you are the expert of yourself and your needs. You know where you hope to end up, my job is to help you get there in the safest and most supportive way possible. I am aware of how debilitating anxiety, depression and other mental health challenges can be and how much it impacts not only the individual battling, but the people around them trying their best to provide love and support on a daily basis, often alone. Allowing someone into your home and into your life can often be difficult, I am aware of this fact and am truly humbled to be a part of your journey.

Sareen Cagliuzun, MSW, RSW

After several years of working with children, youth and their families I have gained an immense understanding of the complex needs of this population. “How did I get here? Why me? Have I failed as a parent?” are some of the common phrases I hear on a daily basis. The reality is you are not alone and that even in the most loving and supportive families you can experience a range of challenges.

Rather than focusing on individual flaws, I strive to understand the interactions between people and their families, schools, workplaces and communities. The experiences that humans have throughout their lives can shape the person they become and influence the way they view their world. I am committed to creating a space where families can explore their vulnerabilities, and through this help them find ways to rewrite their story based off of their new understanding of self. In my experiences in working with children and youth whose day to day functioning is significantly impaired due to anxiety, depression, learning and attention difficulties and other mental health challenges I have witnessed the impact it has on families overall well-being. I am mindful of the unique needs of families and understand the importance of creating individualized intervention plans.

Without a doubt, I live by this ideology that the most meaningful work begins by building meaningful relationships. Though change is inevitable it is not the easiest thing to embrace. Life can be messy and complicated and so the question becomes how do we embrace the mess? I look forward to embarking on this journey with you and helping you and your family to discover your existing strengths to overcome any challenges that may come your way.

- Mother of 16 year old daughter, L.S.

Thank you so much for everything you have done for LS and this family. You were very attuned to LS, and as difficult as she was to get through to, you are the only one in all these years who has been able to get her to talk at all! You are kind, caring, and empathetic-Thank you!

- 17 year old teenager, K.L.

I just wanted to let you know that you’ve made a significant impact on my mental health and on my perspective of life. I thank God for introducing you to me, and thank you for being so selfless and kind. I am in a much better place than I ever was in the last five years. I have a very healthy relationship with my boyfriend who I’ve been with since July, some new friends from university that have a positive impact on me, I’ve transformed many of my bad habits, have a steady job, and my family is starting to become closer due to better communication.

I don’t think I could have achieved all of this without your support. You have taught me so much. You’re honestly an angel 🌟I wish you greater joy than imaginable, and I hope God blesses you and your family every day
