Noah Thorne, MA
My approach to clinical work is relational first and foremost. We, as therapist and client, will work together as a team toward goals, whatever they may be. I act as a guide, assisting clients on their path through life, toward building a life they want to live. I do not pretend to know any more about a clients’ life than they do, as they are the expert and narrator of their journey.
I have experience in many clinical areas including incarcerated adults, families experiencing intergenerational trauma, 2SLGBTQIAP+ folx, neurodivergence/autism spectrum disorder, pediatric and adult ADHD, and complex childhood trauma. These are not mutually exclusive and my clinical approach affords clients the opportunity to be affirmed holistically while collaborating on a treatment approach that meets their unique lived experience.
As a member of the 2SLGBTQIAP+ community, I have insight into the experiences of a number of diverse groups. Even so, I strive to integrate evidence-based research, scholarly sources of understanding, and professional insights. I am a queer, neurodivergent, Jewish nonbinary individual. As such, it is important to me that both of us bring every aspect of ourselves into the therapeutic context.
Outside of clinical work, I enjoy finding and cooking new recipes, sharing moments with my two cats (Star and Goose), reading the latest in fantasy and science fiction, and playing tabletop role-playing games with friends.
