Jennifer Brown

LCSW, Executive Director

I help my clients regulate their nervous systems so that they can be their best selves. Using many different modalities, we can begin to process the trauma that continues to hold them back on a daily basis.

 

Before I began my work at Humboldt NeuroHealth in 2018, I had a private practice specializing with clients with trauma, dissociation, and attachment disorders. Prior to being a clinician I worked as a juvenile corrections counselor at Sonoma County Juvenile Hall as well as a counselor at a residential treatment facility. My prior training and positions shaped my passion for witnessing and guiding people to access their full potential and helping them thrive.

 

I firmly believe that my clients know themselves best and what they’ll need to fully heal. My role is to provide the resources and support to help them do just that.

  • Parts Work, CRM (Comprehensive Resource Model)

I also have extensive experience working with individuals with learning disabilities.

 

I earned my Bachelor of Arts and Master of Social Work from Humboldt State University. I have worked on multiple public school campuses as a social worker from TK through high school. I also served as the Assistant Director of Online Learning and Field Education at Humboldt State University.

LCSW, Clinical Director

As a licensed clinical social worker, it is my passion to help others navigate through life’s difficulties by developing the best coping skills to use in their day-to-day or future lives. 

 

Before working at Humboldt NeuroHealth, I worked with families in the CWS system as a social worker. It was an honor to work with individuals and families trying to understand and process past trauma. 

 

I truly believe in the power of understanding your own trauma so that you can begin to process it and move forward. Being able to be a listening ear while having an understanding presence can make all the difference in someone’s life. I love being a resource for those in our community to come to when in need.

Eric Gronley

LMFT

I specialize in helping my clients identify negative patterns or behaviors in their life preventing them from being able to live up to their full potential and achieve their goals. 

 

After graduating with a master’s degree in psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies, I had the opportunity to be trained by Andrew Leeds in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Before my time at Humboldt NeuroHealth, I worked at the Church Street Counseling Center where I practiced and trained as a gestalt therapist. This informed my work as I provided treatment to counseling clients in Santa Rosa. There I worked with a large variety of clients with varying needs including trauma, PTSD, grief, and attachment issues. This prior experience enabled me to provide my clients with gentle yet honest feedback so that I could guide them to make well-informed decisions themselves.

 

While working with my clients I love seeing the change and transformation that happens within them as our work progresses. It is my hope that by the end of our time together my clients feel they are prepared and able to live to the fullest and achieve their goals. 

 

Therapy Modalities I Practice:

LMFT, Neurofeedback Supervisor

With each client I meet, I believe they have the power and strength within themselves to be the best version of themselves. By focusing on the strengths you already possess, I can help you discover and use the tools you’ve always had to thrive. It’s just a matter of knowing how to apply those strengths and skills in your day-to-day life. 

 

Leading up to my work at Humboldt NeruoHealth I received both my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and my Masters of Counseling Psychology from Humboldt State University. I am a registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and I also work with kids, helping them express themselves through Play Therapy.

 

What I love most about my job has always been seeing the children and families I work with experience true joy as they learn what they are capable of. It is my mission to help every one of my clients realize they are the expert of their own lives.

As a bilingual (Spanish) intersectional feminist I integrate a variety of approaches that are the foundation of my work which includes having a culturally-humble, strengths-based, mindful, and trauma-informed perspective in therapy.

I continue to align with Saybrook’s mission of humanistic, strengths based, and transformational clinical practice. Prior to coming to Humboldt NeuroHealth, I supported individuals suffering from substance use disorders, PTSD, and other trauma-related disorders at an inpatient residential treatment facility.

This experience, along with personal challenges, and continued learning lead me to take an integrative approach to clinical counseling and collaborate with clients to achieve positive outcomes.

My approach to therapy is client centered and relational with an understanding that the mind and body are intricately connected. I believe that connection and community are vital for healthy living and that the systems we are living in have a direct impact on our mental health.

 

Prior to my time at Humboldt NeuroHealth, I was a therapist at Humboldt State University’s Counseling and Psychological Services where I worked with a diverse group of students who were transitioning into adulthood. I gained experience in both individual and group therapy treating anxiety, depression, suicidality, trauma as well as processing what the future looks like for our young people.

 

I have both my B.A in Psychology and M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Humboldt State University and have lived and worked in this county for over two decades. This county is a special place with access to one of the most healing things we have: nature.

I believe in creating a safe and welcoming environment where children, teens and adults can express themselves freely, fostering healing and promoting resilience. My approach to therapy is rooted in empathy, trust, and collaboration. I specialize in addressing anxiety, behavioral challenges, trauma- and the nuanced ways in which trauma impacts our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

 

I obtained my BA in psychology from Sonoma State University and my MA in Integral Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies.  This educational background has formed the foundation of my approach to psychotherapy, which is largely rooted in humanistic and holistic psychology. 

 

I am passionate and drawn to working with children and teens; I am inspired by the beautiful demonstration of human resilience, creativity and growth in our youth. Prior to joining Humboldt Neurohealth, I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with youth in diverse settings, providing therapeutic support in groups homes, and collaborating with families and school staff as a school-based counselor, as well as working closely with families and children in private practice settings. In my most recent role in a health-care facility I was able to expand my experience in treating adults with complex trauma and chronic medical conditions.

My experience and strength have been in project management for the last 25 years. 

I am excited to be a part of the team at Humboldt NeuroHealth. From a trauma informed lens, I am committed to helping keep the program running smoothly with integrity, efficacy, transparency, and kindness. I enjoy spending time outdoors and embracing the beauty of Humboldt County.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Education from Humboldt State in 2005, complemented by an Education Specialist Credential and Autism Authorization.

As the Program Coordinator, my responsibilities encompass the supervision and guidance of the team, ensuring that Wraparound families receive the personalized support they deserve. I am dedicated to fostering an environment that facilitates the realization of each individual's unique capabilities.

Kayla Fillman

Kayla Fillman 

Wraparound Clinical Case Manager/Facilitator 

As a part of Humboldt Neurohealth’s Wraparound Clinical Case Manager, my role is to work with the whole family to facilitate a smooth journey through Wraparound. I work closely with our families throughout the entire process to uplift their voice and choice, be their support system and advocate, connect them to resources in our community, organize their plan of action, and help manage any needs and crises. I personally utilize a humanistic perspective, trauma-informed care approach, and strength based practice to connect and uplift our families through their difficult times.

 

I graduated from Humboldt State University with a Bachelors in Social Work and plan to build my career through Psychology. I have lived in Humboldt County for 5 years now, and grew up between Georgia and Los Angeles making Humboldt a perfect fit for me. I have worked with homeless adults, foster youth and homeless youth providing trauma-informed case management and unconditional care to those who are some of the most vulnerable and underserved community members. My values include honesty, unconditional positive regard and care, true connection, openness and trustworthiness. My goal and hope in wraparound and in life is to truly help make people’s lives better and to be a working part of something bigger than myself that impacts lives in a positive way.

Nicholas Wennerholm

Lead Therapeutic Skills Coach 

I am a part of the Wraparound team, working with kids one-on-one in attaining their goals. I provide a safe place for kids who have experienced trauma to explore their emotions, practice social skills, and work through the challenges. Rather than being stuck inside, my work often takes me out into the community. I especially love being able to get outdoors with little ones. 

 

My love for the outdoors stems from my childhood—I grew up in the very rural community of Carlotta, California with a large family of six. We spent a lot of time farming, and it’s a passion I still enjoy to this day. The patience and persistence of cultivating crops is a skillset that translates well to the work I do within the Workaround program. Today, I live in Arcata. I love the blend of nature and civilization that is in this area.  

 

For a lot of the kiddos I work with, talking to a counselor can feel scary and hard. I bring a trauma-informed perspective and a gentle patience that helps kids feel safe to just be themselves. I love being a part of Wraparound’s team approach to supporting families.

Holly Gleaton 

Therapeutic Skills Coach 

My role in Wraparound is working one-on-one with my clients to guide them towards a healthy and happy future. There is never a one size fits all in terms of care; I aim to always work in a way that is client-centered, free of judgment, and adaptive to individual needs. I utilize a trauma

informed and strengths based approach to best provide an environment where clients and their families can succeed. An important aspect of my job is teaching skills that will last a lifetime to those I have the great privilege of working with.

I attended San Diego State where I double majored in Psychology and Women’s Studies with the goal of making a career in helping others. Being a Humboldt County native, I am familiar with this area and our local resources and programs. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity of

giving back to my own community. In addition to HNH, I work as a residential counselor at Redwood Community Action Agency’s emergency youth shelter. I also have a background in ABA therapy from working with Autistic children through another local organization.

Therapeutic Skills Coach 

My role in wraparound is working one-on-one with clients to help them reach their therapeutic goals. My goal is to have my clients be the best version of themselves. I believe that our environment greatly impacts our mental health and how we see the world. With this idea in mind, I approach my clients' care by understanding their institutional, social and family dynamics to better understand my clients needs. Through a trauma informed lens, I take into account the  cultural background of each client when working with them to achieve their goals. What I love most about this work is seeing the progress our clients make during our time working with them. Seeing them achieve their goals is most rewarding. 

 

I graduated from Humboldt State University with a degree in Psychology. I have had the pleasure of working with HSU’s Social Identity Lab which has helped shape my understanding that each individual behaves differently in different social settings and groups. My professional background has been working with both homeless and foster youth helping them learn life skills to become independent while also helping them get connected to different resources in our community.

After graduating from college I worked for iHeart Media where I found great joy and pride in helping customers reach their business goals. My job was to help identify problem areas in the client’s business, then help them find  a solution. I look at Neurofeedback as helping someone reach their personal goals by helping them train their brain for their optimal life! As a professional with high attention to detail, I look forward to helping others achieve peak performance in their lives. 

 

I am passionate humanitarian and philanthropist who has raised substantial gifts for the American Cancer Society, Make-A-Wish foundation, and local California Farmer’s non-profits. I am on the Mali Family Charities Board of Directors which helps support education in India.

Neurofeedback Provider & Therapeutic Skills Coach

I strive to create a safe and comfortable environment for my clients. I see Neurofeedback as a powerful somatic modality for resolving trauma, reaching peak performance, and strengthening healthy neuropathways. I want to help my clients achieve optimal success and it’s a joy to witness their progress.

 

In my work with the Wraparound program, I focus on fostering healthy attachments and approaching clients with compassion and an open mind. I enjoy working with families to provide individualized care and help my clients make strides towards their goals. My priority is to teach my clients skills that they can add to their toolkit now, so that they have the resources for navigating life and its complex challenges for years to come.

 

Born and raised in Humboldt County, I received my Associates in Communications from College of the Redwoods. I went on to receive my Bachelors in International Relations from the University of California Davis. My academic background has uniquely positioned me to perceive and interpret the larger contextual factors that will undoubtedly impact a client. I believe that being able to understand a client’s culture, norms, communication style, upbringing, intersections of oppression, internalized beliefs, and family dynamics are key to providing optimal care.

Amanda Masse.jpg

Amanda Masse-Bachelier

Clinical Intern 

I have the privilege of walking with clients through the seasons of their lives and providing a safe container for them to explore their experience, identify innate strengths, and experiment with new ways of thinking and being that will support their ongoing growth. I believe that connection is at the heart of healing and that we all have an innate desire and capacity to connect with ourselves, each other, and the natural world. My approach to counseling is client-centered and I am guided by Adlerian, adventure-based, experiential, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapeutic approaches. I view the counseling relationship as a collaborative and experiential space that honors and prioritizes connection in all of its forms, including that between mind, body, and nature. 

 My lived experiences in the outdoors as a leader and a student piqued my curiosity about how the natural world has been and could be used as therapy. This inquiry inspired me to pursue my Master's degree in clinical mental health counseling at Prescott College concurrent with national certification from the Association of Experiential Education (AEE) in adventure-based counseling and psychotherapy. This unique graduate trajectory has afforded me opportunities to study and train in specialty modalities including equine-assisted learning and animal-assisted counseling and psychotherapy. To me, there is nothing greater than facilitating opportunities for people to connect with their nature, whether that be guiding folx outside or supporting clients in the counseling room as they heal their mind-body connection and find strength and balance.

 

Therapy Modalities I Practice:

 

Mindfulness-based CBT

Adlerian

Charane S

Charane Sirrine

Clinical Intern

I believe in the resilience of the human spirit. As a helping professional, my aim is to create an environment that cultivates hope and that is conducive for the change the client wants to see. 

My love for the creative and the healing potential I witnessed through the arts led me to graduate school training in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Art Therapy at Pennsylvania Western University. Prior to joining the Humboldt NeuroHealth team, my clinical experience included working with clients that had traumatic brain injuries, where I utilized art therapy to reinforce resilience.

I see people through the lens of their familial, social, and cultural context with an Adlerian approach, emphasizing connections and strengthening a sense of belongingness. I use motivational interviewing to connect with clients in a way that is validating, affirming, and encouraging. As I continue my studies to become a registered art therapist (ATR), I lean on the non-verbal language of art and the restorative properties of the creative process.

Therapy Modalities I Practice:

·         Motivational Interviewing

·         Adlerian Therapy

·         Art Therapy
