Polly Banerjee - Gallagher, LPC
I started as a housemate in 1998. Since then, I have held all of the clinical positions, along with working in Admissions for seven years and became the Director in 2019. Currently, I am also the Homecare Administrator. I have spent a majority of my career in mental health at WCS, as I resonate deeply with the contemplative approach. I have had the opportunity to engage in several solitary retreats while I held these positions. The times in retreat has helped deepen my understanding of working with my own mind in order to be present with individuals with extreme states of mind. I was born in Myanmar and moved to the United States with my family after an extended stay in India when I was ten years old. I enjoy being outdoors as often as possible hiking, playing pickle ball, and camping with my husband in our small travel trailer.
