7 years of experience

Hi there, I am Ediany, I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Western Connecticut State University. I have more than 7 years of experience working with children, teens, and their families. I utilize an integrative approach to counseling such as skills and techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, and Mindfulness practices in my work with my clients.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we will start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you are facing. This will help me create tailored plan for us to work though in follow-up sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My passion to help my clients to take control over their feelings and emotions to better live their lives. Let's work together! I would love to be able to connect with you and help you start a new chapter in your life.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I have been using CBT in my practice for the past five years. It’s helped many of clients challenge reoccurring thoughts and manage their anxiety. We’ll use CBT to recognize how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors influence each other. We’ll then use that knowledge to change your thinking patterns, which will help you lead a less anxious and stressed life.

Play Therapy

I use also Play therapy with my clients, especially the little ones, as form of psychotherapy that uses play as the main mode of communication. It is used to uncover and deal with psychological issues and can be used on its own or along with other therapies and medications. Play therapy allows the child free and spontaneous expression of feelings.
