About Boyer Counseling Group
Our community is plagued with high level of unemployment, underemployment, gun violence, and women as the head of households. These factors are traumatic to the people in our community and those people rarely have a productive outlet to process this trauma. Therefore, Boyer Counseling Group chose to provide our community a quality, professional setting for all of the therapeutic needs. It is the vision and passion of the founder to meet people where they are and provide people with the help that they need. We have a professional staff with over 80 years of combined experience in mental and behavioral health. These culturally competent clinicians are sensitive to the needs of this unique population.
Boyer Counseling Group was created to be a vessel in the community. We are a small agency which provides quality mental health services while meeting the needs of our consumers.
Boyer Counseling Group provides an intimate, safe and comfortable atmosphere. We encourage you to establish a healthy, honest and respectful relationship between you and your therapist.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
Isabelle Gauthier, MS, LMFT is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice with over 8 years of experience providing support and assistance to children, teens, adults, couples, and families struggling with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma, marital problems, truancy issues, and parent-child relationships.
Clients are drawn to Isabelle’s active, thoughtful participation in therapy and the way she both challenges and supports clients through their most difficult moments. She is also able to support families with children that are at risk of being removed from their homes or in crisis.
Isabelle is a trained therapist in the practice of Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy (ESFT). This model focuses on treatment for children and families experiencing behavioral and/or relational challenges and is based on the theory that change in family structure contributes to change in the behavior of individual members. ESFT begins with the fundamental assumption that both the child and caregivers functioning are linked to their relational environments at home and in the community. Treating a child within this model means working simultaneously with the child and family, the home setting, and the family’s community network.
Isabelle holds a Master’s Degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology with focus on Marriage and Family Therapy from Chestnut Hill College and has a certification in Family-Based Mental Health Services (FBMHS).
