Ready to move from SURVIVING to THRIVING?  Rooted is the place for you!

Our Aim: Wholistic Care

We are a private practice focused on doing deep work, getting to the root of difficulties and roadblocks, moving individuals to a place of thriving. We often see people who have reported not making progress in traditional therapy make long-term changes at Rooted. We accomplish this by tailoring treatment to focus on core issues such as emotions identification and processing, relational perspective transformation, and existential personality exploration to produce sustainable change.

Our Services: Whole-Person Transformation Coaching

Our unique combination of service offerings allows us to provide all-around progress toward fullness of life. Of course, if only particular strict disciplines are desired, we are more than willing to provide only those specific services during sessions, however clients are empowered and encouraged to make use of any other disciplines we provide that may apply to their needs.

  • Counseling

For those that need assistance overcoming depression, anxiety, relational difficulties, symptoms of trauma, or other concerns – help with identifying strategies for moving beyond mental health difficulties and/or unhealthy behavioral or relational patterns.

  • Spiritual Direction

For those seeking a deeper, felt experience of God in their lives; seeking to develop their inner life of prayer; looking for more in their spiritual life; or having a crisis of faith for various spiritual and personal reasons – someone to walk alongside and guide the process (learn more about our approach and training).

  • Nutrition Coaching

For those looking to make improvements in overall dietary/nutrition practices, or experiencing particular health challenges – a dedicated nutrition coach and a team experienced in Paleo, GAPS, and anti-inflammatory diets; traditional cooking methods; autoimmune healing; and active lifestyle.

  • Financial Coaching

For those experiencing frustration and/or stress in managing finances – assistance with evaluating relationships with money, guidance in establishing practical skills, and help discovering freedom in the area of finances. (*We are not financial advisors, but by coupling robust real-world learning resources with regular accountability sessions, we are able to help coach people toward financial wellness and its freeing effects on mind, body, and life as a whole).

Our Team

We believe that quality of care is directly correlated with our team members’ quality of life. Therefore, it is one of our aims to provide our team with reasonable caseloads and living wages, affording them the space and means to provide exceptional service to those we care for. We also serve our team with the same energy, support, and encouragement that we provide our clients, understanding that serving others requires a surplus from which to give, and continual inflow to replenish personal resources.

MEAH – Transformation Coach

In passionate pursuit of living a life that makes a difference; a constant learner, and lover of people.

I believe that each individual is extraordinary, and I want to help you accomplish your next step whether that is overcoming depression or anxiety, working through a history of trauma, exploring what’s next in your life with God, or changing your overall health and wellness. My philosophy is that we are all holistic people – mind, body, and soul; inter-connected and inter-dynamic.

In instances where individuals reach crisis points that trigger the desire for change, the essence of my vocation is to assist them in living their lives to the fullest. This journey, often difficult to walk alone, involves healing and change in the mind, the soul, and the body. It is my desire to companion individuals in taking the next step of their life’s journey. It would be my privilege to walk beside you in identifying a plan for growth and achieving transformation.

I have extensive experience in both mental health (practicing since 2009 with several years of supervising other counselors) and in spiritual direction (offering spiritual direction since 2009). Additionally, I have extensively researched natural healing and have successfully overcome health challenges in my own life.

It has long been my dream to have a center that treats the whole person – physical, spiritual, and emotional – and I am thankful for the team that allows us to provide a holistic practice that meets people in ways that transform all areas of their lives.

CHERYL – Counselor

“Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough. It’s going to bed at night thinking, Yes I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid but that doesn’t change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging”. ~ Brene Brown

I believe that every person is worthy of love and belonging. However, sometimes difficult life experiences, overwhelming loss, disappointment, grief, loneliness, and deep hurt can get in the way of that knowledge and that belief and can shape the way we see ourselves and engage with the people and world around us – often leaving us feeling stuck or trapped, and sometimes even hopeless.

I also believe that working with a therapist in a confidential, compassionate and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship creates space for exploring these experiences, and identifying and articulating unnamed feelings and thoughts, which can help us to gain greater understanding of ourselves. This knowledge provides insight and empowers us to live into and engage from a place of worthiness and wholehearted living. My goal is to come alongside you – building a trusting and supportive relationship where we can explore the narratives and experiences that reinforce these difficult emotional places, and together reframe, reauthor and seek to see ourselves through a lens of compassion and hope.

I specialize in collaborating with young adult and adult populations, having had extensive experience (over 20 years) working with college students. By working together, I’ve helped clients navigate unexpected life changes, feelings of grief and loss, anger, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, existential/spiritual questions, identity exploration and trauma, as well as the many other complex emotions and challenges life can bring.

As a therapist, I seek to honor your whole person (heart, soul, mind and body) and approach our work from a client-centered, strengths-based, trauma-informed perspective. Together, we will pursue the deeper questions and connections of your environment, your relationships, your values, your beliefs and other important factors that play an active role in shaping your interior and exterior life. I utilize an eclectic theoretical approach that uses evidence-based practices, therapies and assessments that can help you achieve your goals and areas for desired growth, healing and change.

No matter what has brought you to this place, I acknowledge your courageous step and I look forward to journeying with you towards a place of courage, compassion and connection. Let’s go!

SUZANNE – Nutrition Coach

Whatever you’re facing when it comes to food, your body, and your health, I want to walk with you on your journey and offer my training and expertise to guide and encourage you. My aim is to root my clients in habits and attitudes that create a long term, sustainable relationship to food. Together we will find pleasure in nourishment, and nourishment in health.

We can learn to trust our bodies. From a coaching perspective, I lean towards intuitive eating and health-at-every-size as approaches to food and our bodies. We often have a deeper knowledge of our own health than we consciously acknowledge. We can be influenced by all sorts of toxic and even predatory messages that lead us to stop listening to what makes our bodies function well. I also work to increase health and hope in the lives of those with dietary restrictions and immune-related conditions. I have Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, as do three of my family members, and my journey towards better health inspires me to help others.

My focus, both during my training in nutrition and in my daily life, is to embrace the constant process of learning how best to relate to food and our bodies. I have studied the connections between the mind, the immune system, and the way we eat; and how food affects our immune function, our brain function, and our hormones. Ideal treatment for the body is holistic. All of our systems talk to each other, and we’re still learning the language of that conversation. The intricate connections within our bodies are fascinating, and I continue to research these connections alongside the doctors and researchers who taught and trained me. The cutting edge of knowledge will always intrigue me, but what excites me most is finding the place where that knowledge connects with daily life in a useful way.

A huge part of my job is to offer encouragement as you figure out the best course of action for your particular body. I believe community is crucial for our well-being, and have first-hand experience in the pain caused by people’s lack of understanding around food needs. I want to offer support for those who need it, and bridge gaps of knowledge and empathy in order to build more unified communities.

Through my own experiences and those of my family, friends, and past clients, I’ve learned that healing takes time. I want to help you find sustainable habits of eating that are good for people nutritionally, emotionally, and communally. The process can be complicated. I’m okay with that, and I can help you walk through that journey too.

My ideas and plans are connected by three root beliefs: people matter, and this includes bodies; relationships matter, to other people and the world around us; and words matter, especially the stories we tell.

I believe in the interconnection of our future with our present (and the past), and that both are influenced by the stories we tell and believe on an individual and cultural level. These stories shape our minds, our bodies, and our complex world.

I enjoy plants of all kinds, even though I can barely keep them alive, and find a wander in the woods balm for body, mind, and spirit. In recent years I haven’t had opportunities for playing music with people, which has helped me realize how important it is to me. I’m actively stretching myself in other areas of creative expression as well, including rug-making.

I have been in therapy previously, but nothing compares to what I have experienced with this wonderful woman. Some people are scared or even embarrassed to admit that they are seeing a therapist. Let me tell you that I travel over an hour to visit with Meah on a weekly basis. I am fifty years old and she continues to brighten my horizons after every session. She is gentle and reassuring; that leaves me refreshed after every visit. I continue to learn and listen because I know she will lead me to my next fulfilling chapter in my life.

Cynthia | Central MA

Meah is one who has mastered the art of sacred listening, her listening presence has helped me learn to put down control. Meah’s listening presence is the kind of listening that has brought intimacy and understanding to what God is saying to me. She cultivates a safe, grace-filled space that has allowed me to give voice to the many inner stirrings and doubts of my soul. I am thankful for the strategies that I have learned during spiritual direction with Meah that have nourished my capacity to heal and connect with Jesus.

When we are caged by guilt over our actions, or over our past, or over our generational family dysfunction, our personhood and self worth is diminished and our ability to be present and engage in our reality, our relationships, our very life is also diminished. We are therefore bound to those things and imprisoned by […]
