At Authentica Center, we believe in the importance of providing girls (including those exploring gender fluidity and/or sexual identify/transition), with the necessary tools to tackle common hurdles in friendship building and social situations with confidence and authenticity, in a positive environment where they can express their true selves creatively through acceptance and belonging.

Authentica was formed in 2008, by esteemed clinicians Barbara Easterlin, PhD and Danya Moss, PsyD, who together recognized the need for girls in their community and beyond to have a place to be their “Authentic” selves and share about the many challenges girls face in friendship, socialization, and authenticity.

Our program helps girls to identify their own values and recognize the importance of having fulfilling relationships with both herself and others — through connections to nature, art, music, and family. Sinead Broughton PsyD, joined the team in 2009, and is currently the owner/director of Authentica Center.

Whether a child is introverted, has experienced bullying, suffers from ADHD, is entering a new school, is curious about gender and/or sexual identity, or is just simply struggling with building authentic friendships, we believe that by valuing the intrinsic qualities they possess, we in turn, can help each individual discover their own uniqueness and encourage them to appreciate and express their authentic self!
