Project LAUNCH Staff
Sarehl Lomme, MA, LCPC
Sarehl joined GMHC in 2016 as the Behavioral Health Clinician and Mental Health Consultant for Project LAUNCH. As a pilot for Montana, Sarehl’s position integrates behavioral health into pediatric primary care and promotes the social & emotional well-being of children birth to 8 years old. In order to prevent and reduce the incidence of early childhood adversity, Sarehl provides screening, assessment, psychoeducation, parenting strategies, short-term therapy, and referrals for young children and families. Sarehl also provides mental health consultation to home visitors, who work with at-risk children and families. She received a BA in Psychology from the University of Connecticut, Graduate Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis from the University of North Texas, and a MA in Counseling from Saint Joseph College. Sarehl worked with children with autism for 7 years, providing one:one therapy to children and supervising staff working directly with children in public schools and home programs. Her true passion for working with children emerged while employed at the Clifford Beers Clinic in CT, where she learned to provide therapy to the parent and child (the dyad), based on child-parent psychotherapy and care coordination. Since then, Sarehl has provided home therapy to at-risk children birth to 5 years old and their parents in CT, MA, and MT, supporting healthy attachments, play, and skill development, while hoping to reduce intergenerational trauma and chronic stress. She has also consulted with child care centers, Early Head Start, and Head Start. During her free time, Sarehl enjoys exploring beautiful Montana and the Northwest, connecting with family and friends back East, spending time with friends who have become family, hiking, yoga, Eastern spirituality, taking pictures, and going to music shows.
