Meet Our Team


Kerry L Lavallee, MSSW, LICSW


Practice Owner/Therapist

A clinical social worker with more than 20 years’ experience, Kerry is a conscientious and compassionate clinician, who works collaboratively with her clients to foster resiliency, promote meaningful growth, develop their innate strengths, and empower them to set and achieve their goals. Her trauma-informed practice draws from solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and family systems theories, but therapy is tailored to the individual growth of those with whom she works.

Since earning her MSSW from the University of Texas at Austin in 1998, she has worked in programs in Texas, New Mexico, Illinois and, for the past decade, Massachusetts. Kerry worked for almost twenty years in residential treatment settings with children, adolescents and families, and has also worked in employee assistance programs, managed healthcare and outpatient behavioral health. She started Richer Soil Counseling in 2019 to create a space that values clients and therapists.


Kerry is a member of the National Association of Social Workers.

What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.

– Meister Eckhart
