Clare Kane, LPC-A, M.T.S., M.Sc, M.A.
There is no cookie-cutter path to healing, and my first and most important job as a therapist is to create a safe space for each client and their unique story to be heard and accepted. What clients are experiencing in the present moment is often shaped both by their past and by the
hopes they have for their future. As such, I integrate a both/and approach in my work - one in which I help clients both process the past and integrate changes in the present moment that help them realize their hopes for the future. To do this, I draw from several research-based and trauma-informed modalities that combine counseling interventions with traditional psychoanalytic approaches. These include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy.
My educational and working background is similarly integrative. I have Master’s degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Sacred Heart University, in Literature from the University of Edinburgh, and in Theology from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute at the Catholic University of America. Before becoming a counselor, I taught literature and composition at Fordham University and Pace University for many years and owned a therapeutic massage therapy practice. I also lecture and write on issues related to Infertility Grief and pastoral care of families. I enjoy working with clients of all ages and have experience in treating:
-Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
-Grief, including Infertility Grief
