Meet the Team

Kasey Pendexter, LMFT, LMHC, CCPT-II (she, her) (fluent in American Sign Language)

Hi there! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MA #1503) and Licensed Mental Health Counselor (MA #9127) who has served underserved youth in non-profit mental health organizations for the past 10 years.  Most recently, I have worked as the Director of Clinical Services at a deaf residential treatment program. 


Providing workshops at international conferences related to Complex PTSD and neuroscience is a passion of mine. I have been humbled to spend the last decade working with children, adolescents, families, and adults, specializing in trauma-informed care as well as alternative therapeutic approaches, including Neurofeedback and Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment (SMART). I firmly believe a therapeutic approach must consist of tapping into my client's strengths and often use my Animal Assisted Psychotherapy dogs in sessions as a means of building both comfort and rapport within the room. Outside of my work, I am passionate about running, hiking, being outdoors, and writing.

Sarah Wintman, LICSW, RPT (she, her) (fluent in American Sign Language)

From a young age, I’ve always been interested in American Sign Language and play. I believe play is important for the spirit as well as helping children process their world, their thoughts, and their feelings. I am a Registered Play Therapist and Independently Licensed Social Worker (MA #121985) with a background in working with both hearing and deaf children for over 10 years. Over the years, I have worked with children as young as 12m to 25 years old. My background is in expressive arts, child development, play therapy and Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment [SMART]. When I am not in the office, I am creating art, playing with my cat, or out somewhere exploring!

Sarah Carr, LICSW (they, them)

I believe everyone has the potential for healing and growth that is personally meaningful to them, and therapy is partnership between client and therapist on a journey of transformation. I utilize a grounded, collaborative, and strengths-based approach to support you in gaining insight and resolution to achieve the change you want within yourself and your life. I am a gender and neurodivergent affirming therapist with a focus in working with adults to address needs including LGBTQ+ issues, neurodiversity, life transitions, women’s issues, emerging adulthood, family/relationship dynamics, and mental health disorders.


I use person-centered, cognitive, and narrative therapy to provide personalized and integrative treatment for every client. Additionally, I have extensive training and experience in working with trans clients, including support with gender dysphoria and providing documentation for gender-affirming medical care.


Our therapeutic relationship is very important to me, and I will work closely with you to make sure you feel comfortable and have your needs met throughout the therapeutic process. I provide long-term therapy on your timeline to support you in achieving your goals. I look forward to working together!

Genevieve Spears, LICSW (she, her) (Maine and Massachusetts)

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in the state of Massachusetts, providing individual therapy to children and adults experiencing a wide range of life challenges, including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, work and school stress, and other life transitions. I have a particular interest in maternal mental health and supporting individuals as they adjust to parenting.

My work is collaborative and I tailor treatment to your unique needs and goals. Whatever struggle you are facing, I am committed to providing you with a supportive space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings, gain insights, and learn skills to help you heal, grow, and feel your best.

Dr. Elly Romero, PhD (they, them) (fluent in American Sign Language))

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and have a special interest in issues of diversity and inclusion and exploring clients' unique experiences and relationships with their intersecting identities (e.g., race, ethnicity, Deaf/hard of hearing/child of deaf adults, religion, gender, sexuality). My particular areas of interest include trauma/PTSD, LGBTQIA* identity, depression/anxiety, major life transitions, college mental health, emotional regulation, multiculturalism and immigration. I have experience and training in psychological assessments, individual, group, and family therapy. 

I provide services in American Sign Language, spoken English and Spanish. I tailor my approaches based on the presenting client’s and/or family's individualized needs and strengths in order to promote social and emotional health and well-being. I have training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). In addition, I complete ADHD and psychological evaluations to provide diagnostic clarification and subsequent recommendations for the home, school and/or treatment settings.
