    About Damien Alston, LMHC

    Damien began his Individual mission to help people find their fullest potential very early in his career. It was in his own life that coaches and mentors gave him what he needed to reach his goals. The desire to be of service to youth facing difficulties led him to work in residential treatment settings. Most times those children were facing incredible odds at being successful in their home and in their communities. Damien continually noted a theme with those he worked with and that was a lack of validation and support. He saw that most of those people were not living to their full potential.  And worse were not experiencing joy or happiness in their situations. After a decade working in the residential treatment setting Damien felt that he that he could bring more and find more success working with those individuals in a closer individual and relational setting.

    Wanting to meet people where they were at brought him to work in the children’s behavioral health initiative program for the state of Massachusetts. In this program youth and families are paired with mentors and trainers to optimize their experience with their families and within themselves. It was a natural progression for him to explore a master’s program and then licensure in mental health counseling. This compliments the strategies he uses to get the most from themselves and their life experience.

    Along with his work in behavioral health sciences Damien is a passionate athlete and has enjoyed coaching life-balance to NCAA level athletes. His work is to support them in the demands that are placed on themselves and guide them to materialize all of the hard work and efforts it takes to produce at such a high level. Damien has also taken these skills and applied them to career counseling clients some who have gone on to opening their own successful businesses. In his free time Damien enjoys being with his family playing basketball and coaching his own sons. Always a competitor he can often be found on the golf course.

    About Kathryn Alston

    Kathryn is passionate about her work as a marriage and family therapist. It was quite a departure from a business career in the corporate environment where she spent 20 years. But after having a child with a medical disability Kathryn had to put herself on hold and focus on her child. Kathryn quickly learned the need for those that experience challenges and difficulties to have a strong advocate and support system. This led Kathryn to pursue a master’s degree in special education. As she was completing her internship with families in crisis she began to see the importance of family support and the need to provide validation and enhancement of relationships. Particularly for those who experienced life challenges and traumatic events. Kathryn began to realize that things don’t necessarily exist only within the individual but within the greater relational system that they are a part of.

    It was then that she decided to pursue a master’s and an advanced graduate certificate in marriage and family studies. After working for a decade in marriage family counseling, she saw the importance of individuals to focus on themselves holistically. Particularly women who experience significant stress as they raise their families or pursue their careers. Kathryn added a holistic approach to her work by training in wellness coaching which she does through the Chopra center. Kathryn firmly believes that we can resolve our individual trauma through the process of support and enhancement of self with internal work and improved relationships.

    In her personal time Kathryn enjoys being with her family. Kathryn has been known to binge watch design shows and true crime. She loves the sunshine state and will take a ride to Florida whenever she has the chance.
