MARK CASAGRANDE, LCSW

Schedule: Monday through Wednesday

Currently CLOSED to New Clients; Waitlist Closed (at capacity until further notice)

Sees ages 18 and up

I believe every person has the ability to facilitate healthy changes and has the right to be free from emotional pain and trauma. My ideal client is a person who believes he/she is ready to change his/her life and open to exploring his/her capacity to change from within. The therapeutic relationship is unique and transactional, and it is imperative to have a safe, trusting, and nurturing environment in which to do this transformational work. I highlight a person's strengths and build from the strongest foundation possible to create the happiest and healthiest life.

 

My specialties include mood and anxiety disorders, chronic mental illness, LGBTQ+ issues, gender identity, couples work, family therapy, core strengthening, and nurturance work, grief/bereavement, holistic healing, sexual abuse and trauma, attachment issues, adoption, spirituality, primary caregiver stress, EAP/work-related issues and end of life issues. My primary goal is to provide the best comprehensive care and create the opportunity for permanent change. I received my undergraduate degree in Human Resources from the University of Delaware and my Master of Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania.

JADE ESQUIVEL, LMSW, CAADC; Supervised by Mark Casagrande, LCSW

Schedule: Monday through Thursday

Currently OPEN to New Clients

Sees ages 7 and up

I am extremely passionate about helping my clients achieve their goals. I strive to create a comforting and
welcoming environment, free of any judgment. I aim to uncover my client’s strengths while supporting
them to help solve their life hurdles. In my office, you are accepted completely as you are. I utilize
Cognitive behavioral, Dialectical behavioral and person-centered therapies. I graduated from Delaware
State University in 2019 with my Master of Social Work Degree. I currently hold my LMSW and Certified
Advanced Drug and Alcohol Certification and plan to earn my LCSW in Spring 2023. I’ve worked in
various settings ranging from treating offenders in a correctional facility, residential mental health and
substance use programs to outpatient individual therapy. I specialize in helping children ages 7-10 and
adults manage depression, anxiety, substance use, grief, anger, and life transitions. I am a firm believer
that one size does not fit all, therefore I specifically tailor my skills and approach to each of my client’s
unique needs. It is important to me that you feel empowered to navigate life stressors and recognize that
you are the one who is capable of making positive changes in your life. I enjoy helping my clients find
their voice and learn skills to better advocate for their wants and needs.

MICHELLE COYNE, MSW, LMSW; Supervised by Mark Casagrande, LCSW

Schedule: Monday through Friday

Currently OPEN to New Clients

Sees ages 12 and up

My goal is to help people live their lives in happiness. If you struggle with anxiety, difficulty in relationships, poor self-esteem, unhealthy coping mechanisms, inability to understand your emotions, feeling “stuck” and unable to move forward, feeling a lack of inner peace, or you would like to be more in control of your emotions rather than your emotions being in control of you, you are not alone. We can effectively address these challenges together, and learn healthier ways of thinking, coping, and managing ourselves and our lives that will reduce your pain and suffering, and increase your happiness.


I have more than 20 years of experience helping people in the residential group home, inpatient, and partial hospitalization settings, working as a program manager and a behaviorist prior to doing therapy. I work with adolescents and adults who are experiencing difficulty with issues related to acute stressors, life situations, and transitions; depression; anxiety; self-esteem; borderline personality issues; substance use disorders; interpersonal relationships; trauma; LGBTQ+ issues; grief and loss; intellectual and developmental disabilities; and autism and neurodiversity.


I provide a warm, caring, and validating therapeutic space to help you identify and change the thinking and behavioral patterns that have caused you distress and kept you from living your most fulfilling life. I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Interpersonal, and Person-Centered therapies and techniques to support your growth and happiness. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a concentration in Mental Health Counseling from Southern New Hampshire University and a Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Boston University. I would be honored to take your journey with you.
