Dan BrowN, MA

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS, SENIOR CLINICIAN

Dan holds two master’s degrees; a Masters in Theology and a Masters in Mental Health and Marriage and Family Therapy from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He has over 15 years of experience working with men and couples in ministry settings and has a bachelor’s degree in Business Management with minors in History and Communications from the University of Nebraska Lincoln. He has been working as a therapist for the last 5 years and believes a strong rapport with his clients is critical to the therapeutic process.  Change will sometimes be easy and swift, but more often it will be slow and potentially frustrating. Remembering and resolving significant life events in therapy can bring on strong feelings of anger, sadness and fear, but if trust and rapport are strong, Dan believes that together you can wade through these milestones as they come together.

DAY MARSHALL, LMHC

SENIOR CLINICIAN

Day began her journey toward counseling while working alongside her youth pastor husband in Oregon.  This work solidified a desire to encourage individuals through the trenches of life.  So, after completing her undergraduate degree at Multnomah University in Portland, Oregon, earning a dual degree in Bible & Theology, and Family Ministry, she moved to Massachusetts where she completed her Masters of Arts in Counseling at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, with a focus on mental health counseling.  Since graduating, Day has worked extensively with clients with substance use disorders and their families.  Most recently, she served as the Clinical Director at a large, residential facility that oversaw treatment of individuals with co-occurring disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, and a multitude of stressors such as grief and loss, DCF and legal involvement, relational difficulties, anger management challenges, and self-esteem issues. Day’s heart is to use gospel truth to offer hope, comfort and direction to individuals seeking wholeness and healing. This, coupled with sound, evidence-based treatment modalities, such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and some Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills, create a treatment environment where real change can happen.

CLINICAL Intern

Alison (Ali) is currently in her final semester of the Masters of Arts in Counseling at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Before moving to Massachusetts two years ago to begin this study, she was a secondary school teacher in Sydney, Australia for five years. She taught art and math to 7th-12th grade classes, and also served in various pastoral care roles over that time. Ali’s desire to be trained in counseling grew during her time as a teacher, as she pastorally cared for many young people facing difficulties like anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, and family brokenness. She views it as a privilege to journey with people in the things that burden them most.
