CENTER FOR THERAPY AND HEALING WELCOMES YOU
Genevieve Nave, LMHC- Here to Guide You
“The curious paradox is that, when I accept myself as I am, then I can change.”
A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
Personalized Attention for All Your Needs
Person-centered therapy allows clients to take a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience.
Motivational interviewing is a therapeutic technique that helps people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find their own internal motivation for change.
With unconditional positive regard, and while emphasizing the client-therapist relationship, your clinician will strive to create a safe environment in which you can process emotions, face challenges, and meet your goals.
Commitment to treatment by the client is an essential component of the therapeutic process. As you start this healing journey, please know that your therapist is willing to meet you where you are, and will always take into consideration how difficult it is to make life changes. Your willingness to engage is key to your success!
As an Administrative Coordinator working closely with our clinical staff, I provide support for non-therapy tasks. My role involves assisting with various administrative aspects such as insurance coordination, HSA accounts, billing, and bookkeeping.
With my extensive experience in the mental health field, I understand that navigating insurance benefits and entitlements can be challenging. I am here to help alleviate any confusion or concerns you may have in this regard, ensuring a smoother administrative process for you.
Outside of work I enjoy reading, engaging in regular exercise, spending quality time with friends, and pursuing my passion for quilting.
Rest assured that our clinical staff keeps me informed about how I can be of assistance to you. As your Administrative Assistant, my aim is to contribute to your overall experience by addressing administrative tasks effectively and providing you with the support you need throughout your therapeutic journey.
AISLING HEGARTY, MA
Master's Level Clinician
I work full-time as a School Adjustment counselor for elementary aged children and part-time for the Center for Therapy and Healing. My clinical expertise is children and families, as well as college-aged students. In my "day job," I work with students with a wide range of identities, abilities, and cultural backgrounds. I also work closely with families on supporting their children and themselves. My goal as a private practice clinician is to support the whole person and consider the cultural and environmental context of each client. I have an interest in anxiety and trauma-related disorders. I may also be a good fit for clients who are going through life transitions or exploring their mental health for the first time. I work with a strengths based approach and the fundamental belief that every person has the ability to change in small and large ways. My hope for every client is to leave therapy feeling hopeful about themselves and the world around them.
NATALIE JONES, MA
Master's Level Clinician
I use a variety of approaches as a practicing Clinician..First and foremost a Person-Centered approach,including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Existential Therapy,and Narrative Therapy just to name a few methods. I use a Trauma-Informed lens to create a non-judgemental, affirming therapeutic relationship. I'm able to create a safe space and partner with my clients, whether they seek to examine the vulnerable parts of themselves, or struggling to keep the promises they've made to themselves, or someone else, managing the stress of 21st Century life, exploring a pathway to break free from a painful past or a traumatic event.. I adapt to the needs of each person, in a manner of respect, that is culturally sensitive. I'm honored to do the kind of work that affects a person's quality of life.
BRIANNA MARIE RZEZNIK, MA, MT-BC
Master's Level Clinician
I am a clinician working toward full licensure under the supervision of Genevieve Nave, LMHC. I have experience counseling both youth and adults, including those who are neurodivergent. I celebrate the unique identity and story of every client I meet, and as your therapist, you can count on me to be accepting, supportive, authentic, and solution-oriented. In addition to being a mental health counselor, I am also a Board-Certified Music Therapist with my own active music therapy practice; my clients have included neurodivergent youth and adults, individuals with acute emotional and behavioral health disturbances, and children facing parental incarceration and deportation. I enjoy integrating music, art, and other expressive techniques into mental health counseling, and I may be the right fit for clients who feel as though they’d like to try processing through creative expression. (And if that’s not you, that’s perfectly okay, too– I am equally comfortable keeping things verbal!)
GENEVIEVE NAVE, LMHC
I provide psychotherapy in a private practice setting to instill self-understanding among clients and to encourage them to adopt alternative perspectives and attitudes.
With a strong background in the field of substance abuse, I specialize in addressing numbing behaviors, and their root causes.
I may be the right therapist for you if you are struggling with adjustments due to stage of life and transitions like emerging adulthood, or new motherhood. I may be the right therapist for you if you are facing challenges with fulfillment from your employment, or in your relationships, or are recovering from trauma and/or addiction.
My theoretical framework is rooted in a strong foundation of both cognitive and molecular neuroscience, and in the belief of human resilience and capacity for change. In addition to providing psychotherapy to my clients, I provide clinical supervision to the other clinicians in the practice.

Here For You
FEES AND PAYMENT INFORMATION
At Center for Therapy and Healing, Genevieve is an in-network provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield of MA.
Clients are responsible for all co-payments, and deductible charges.
If you have a PPO for health insurance, we will provide any necessary information, so that you can be reimbursed by Blue Cross.
Out of Network Coverage for Your Psychological Needs
If Blue Cross is not your insurance company, please do not hesitate to contact your own insurance company to ask whether they provide out-of-network benefits. We are happy to provide you with any information that you need.
Private Payment Information
At Center for Therapy and Healing, the fee for a 60-minute psychotherapy session is $150. We ask for payment at each session. Since the outset of this practice, Genevieve has gone above and beyond to accommodate to the unique situation of every patient. Call to see what your options are today.
DO YOU ACCEPT HEALTH INSURANCE?
Yes! We are in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield. Depending on your plan, you may have a copayment, or a deductible that is your responsibility. This is an agreement between you, and your insurance company.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS AN APPOINTMENT?
We do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Since we cannot bill an insurance company for a session that did not occur, and it is not enough notice to fill the appointment time, cancellations falling within this window will result in a charge for the missed session.
CAN I REACH MY THERAPIST IN BETWEEN APPOINTMENTS?
Yes. Clinicians are usually able to respond to emails within 12-24 hours, but do not always check emails daily. It is understood that any replies made are not therapy. If you are experiencing a clinical emergency, your clinician will want to know, but emergency services are necessary.
HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?
A "therapeutic hour" is 50-60 minutes. It is standard practice to book one hour appointments at a frequency that is determined by your therapist to be clinically appropriate.
