Outpatient Mental Health Practitioner
More About Isaac Hatch-Gillette
I have in depth experience, both through research and long-term care, working with people diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness. Having completed my practicum in an in-school counseling program, as well as teaching an after school philosophy programs, I also work children in k-12.
I approach our concerns through a person-centered lens, looking to address the needs of the patient from their own perspective and walking alongside them as we build tangible goals; answering some of life's complex questions through an often practical, but occasionally existential, framework. In working with children I utilize person-centered play therapy, advocating for their capacity to build upon their own innate skills. While I hold in high regard the utility of a diagnosis, my primary philosophy is to see my patient's in a holistic lens beyond the label.
I enjoy getting up north to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, snowboarding, reading philosophy, poetry, and novels, learning to play guitar (very slowly), disc golf, and learning Spanish (also very slowly).
