Welcome! I am Robyn. These days many people are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and depressed. Sometimes they feel as if no matter what they do, it isn't enough and either they or those around them are never happy with themselves. How about you? Are you trying to manage to be the best parent, spouse, and employee that you can be? Are you struggling with a recent life transition or the loss of a loved one or relationship? Are you lying awake at night reviewing the list of things you think you should have accomplished? Or are you ruminating on what you said to someone, how you said it, and what you should have done differently? You are not alone! Many people experience these feelings and you do not have to continue to feel like this! You CAN FEEL BETTER! I work with adults of all ages who are struggling with these things by providing a safe space to talk about and work through these issues. I strive to empower them to discern their strengths, their priorities, and the barriers to feeling better. Once we’ve done that, I help them find ways to address those barriers and build new coping skills they can use to overcome the challenges of anxiety, depression, managing change, and people-pleasing. Change is not easy! I am impressed by your courage in taking the first step of asking for help to start your journey toward feeling better! You deserve to have someone skilled and trustworthy to guide you to grow and heal. I will compassionately work with you using evidence-based techniques to get beyond the challenges you are experiencing and on the road to feeling better! I’d love to have the privilege of working with you!

Hi there! My name is Alexandra, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), licensed in the state of CT, with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Columbia University. I have over 7 years of experience working with adults, adolescents, and children in a variety of settings. Including specialized experience focused on working with survivors of domestic violence as well as Veteran and military populations. I currently offer individual therapy, focused on helping clients navigate feelings of anxiety, depression or overwhelm, challenging relationships, life transitions or other ongoing stressors, as well as working through traumatic experiences. I have a particular focus on helping people cope with the emotional and psychological effects of difficult or traumatic events. I am committed to providing compassionate and effective therapy, in a safe, supportive, and nonjudgemental space. My goal is to support my clients in developing greater self-understanding and growth, supporting change, and fostering healing. My approach to therapy is holistic, strengths-based, and trauma-informed; providing supportive talk therapy while drawing on various therapeutic modalities as appropriate. My approach centers around meeting clients where they are, utilizing a collaborative approach to identify areas of need and developing insight. We will take time to develop achievable goals for therapy and the future; together we will work toward building the skills and strategies to realize those goals. I work collaboratively with my clients to identify and further develop their strengths and resources; developing coping and problem-solving skills that will enable them to successfully navigate and manage their symptoms and live a full and meaningful life. If you are struggling with the effects of stress, depressed mood, anxiety, or trauma, or just want to be able to talk to someone in a supportive and nonjudgmental space - I encourage you to reach out for help, you do not have to face these challenges alone. Life is often full of an incredible mix of significant positives and profound challenges, often these challenges are filled with anxiety, overwhelm, or distress, that can at times, feel impossible to navigate. My goal is to help and support you while you learn to navigate these challenges and work toward healing, happiness, and growth. Please remember, as you are taking this step to connect with a therapist, while it may not have been the easiest of decisions to come to, the decision to seek help is a sign of profound strength, never one of weakness. You deserve to feel happy and well.

Have you ever felt misunderstood by family and friends? Find it difficult to trust others including professionals? Have difficulty being seen as a person and not your condition? Do you feel alone? Do you struggle with adapting and accepting your chronic illness or chronic pain? Let's talk! I can help you build tools to gain strength and confidence in managing your personal challenges. I empower adults with chronic illness/ pain or a history of abuse to take back their control and create healthy supports in order to stay on a path towards healing. Our experiences with our body or from how others treat us create unhealthy pathways for self regulation often exhibited as anger or anxiety. The compassion and guidance I provide will rewire those pathways allowing you to be the best version of yourself. In our sessions together, we will work on making small manageable changes through mindfulness, changing behaviors and embracing a positive healthy mindset. It’s often scary to start therapy for the first time or even to go back to therapy but it is the best self care gift you can give to yourself.

I have worked as a LCSW (licensed clinical social worker) in several different settings and roles. Work experience includes community behavioral health, medical social work, hospice, out-patient private practice, geriatric psychiatry, partial hospitalization, and acute in-patient psychiatric hospitalization. I have had the privilege of working with adults ranging in age from 18 to 100+. My combined work experience over the years has helped me to develop my present therapeutic style based first and foremost in compassion, with the knowledge that each client is a unique individual. I trust that things can get better so you can maximize the quality of your life. Let me help you to discover this! My goal is to create a safe, collaborative environment where clients can explore their concerns, patterns or triggers and find strategies for healing. I feel that attention needs to be given to the interconnected areas of the mind, body and spirit. Addressing the whole – mind, body and spirit - and increasing self-awareness, will improve self-acceptance and strengthen self-compassion. Areas of clinical work with adults for individual therapy include, but are not limited to - anxiety, depression, stress related to change and life transitions – college, retirement, move to assisted living, etc.…aging, caregiver stress, grief/loss, parents of adult children with major mental health and/or SUD (substance use disorders), separation/divorce, medical problems, self-care, self-esteem, early diagnosed neurocognitive disorders, and spirituality. Whatever your situation, I look forward to working with you toward your goals.

Hello and welcome! My name is Karen Fahey and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 25 years of experience. I work with individuals ages 18 and up. In a safe and supportive environment, my approach is compassionate, nonjudgmental and collaborative. I use a holistic approach with a goal of healing, change and integration. I strive to help individuals live through their pain and get to a place where they love themselves and where they can be freer to absorb love from others. I will help you to understand patterns of thinking and behavior by cultivating self awareness and self acceptance. I also utilize body centered psychotherapy to go deeper into the healing process that may bring about lasting change. By seeking help you are demonstrating that you have courage, strength and hope. You are not alone. During my 25 plus years as a therapist, I have worked with a diverse population from ages 5 and up. I have experience working in a variety of therapeutic settings including private practice, state and general inpatient psychiatric hospitals, outpatient clinics, emergency departments, community mental health centers and a cancer center.

I believe that everyone has the tools they need to implement the changes they want. As a therapist, it is my job to help you access these tools through, providing new broader perspectives and understanding how contexts and perspectives may be limiting you. I practice under the theory that relationships work in systemic ways, meaning when one aspect of a relationship is not functioning as it should another aspect will suffer. Through collaborative discussion I will challenge you to broaden your perspective in relationships, allowing you to access your internal tools to implement the necessary changes. Sometimes life is just funny, during our sessions we will laugh, cry and we may even disagree all in an effort to reach our goals and or elevate symptoms. If you are willing to do the work together we can help you create change.

My name is Dr. Olushola Bakare, and I'm a board-certified Psychotherapist. I attended St Joseph College. I'm happy to help you today with any of your concerns. I enjoy empowering people and digging out their strengths. I don't ask fish to fly, neither do I ask birds to swim. I respect everyone's strengths and help my client recognize them. I love to highlight my client's strengths. I offer a safe, warm, therapeutic, judgment-free space for Adults (18+) and Older Adults (65+). I am sorry, but I do not accept clients who pay in cash. Also, every late cancellation or no-show accrues a late charge fee. It is my ethical duty to officially terminate our therapeutic relationship when it is reasonably clear that the client is no longer beneficent, services are no longer required, counseling no longer serves the client's needs and interests, or Dr. Olushola Bakare, LMFT limits do not allow the provision of further counseling services. It is the policy of Dr. Olushola Bakare, LMFT, that our professional relationship will be terminated after a one-month consistent lapse of meeting with a client. Dr. Olushola Bakare, LMFT, will attempt to notify you of this change in status as soon as possible after one month. My ethical duty is identifying, being available, and caring for current clients. It could feel awkward for our relationship to end, yet it is not meant to be discourteous in any way.

Hello! I’m Aida Valerio-Lerner. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who found my calling 11 years ago having discovered that I wanted to provide people with a therapeutic space to heal, grow, and ultimately transform. Are you going through a personal challenge or major life transition? Do you need a safe space to have your experiences affirmed and validated? Do you feel overwhelmed by your emotions and in need of support? Have you considered speaking to someone but are unsure of how to begin? Wherever you are in your journey, I want to congratulate you on exploring possibilities to receive help. Therapy, like anything new or unknown, can feel scary. When Wendy was learning how to fly in Peter Pan, her fear of “what if I fall?” was met with Peter’s response of “oh, darling, what if you fly?” Not only did she fly, but she also transformed! My therapeutic approach is gentle, warm, and trauma-informed to ensure your comfort every step of the way. I listen attentively and non-judgmentally, welcoming your authentic self. You can express yourself in English and/or Spanish as I am fluent in both languages. Together, we can overcome anything.

I became clinician to help others heal from trauma and life circumstances. I can guide you on a path of self-discovery and self-love that can empower you through many situations. Therapy is a place for you to practice being yourself and expressing your needs, so you are comfortable advocating for your needs and communicating your desires. Life is what you make it and I can help you to start walking into the person you desire to become. I have over 14 years in the mental health field and have experience working with individuals' families and couples with diverse needs. I have help people to regain a sense of self-worth and unlearn negative beliefs about themselves.

Hello, I am an experienced clinical trauma professional who engages in a holistic mind, body, and spirit approach in my work with racially, economically, sexually, and culturally diverse persons. As a licensed clinical social worker, clinical trauma professional, and mental health integrative medicine professional, I focus on the clients as people, not as conditions or as diagnoses. In working with chronically and complexly traumatized individuals, couples, and families I recognize and interact with clients affirming that they are deserving of empathy, respect, and dignity. To this end, the treatment methods I use are tailored and combined to meet the needs of each specific individual, couple, and family I work with. I counsel clients who are struggling with traumatic stress disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, problem behaviors, and addictive behaviors. The healing journey intentionally addresses the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. Evidenced-based traditional, holistic, and expressively creative client-centered therapeutic processes and interventions are used to help clients overcome limiting, self-defeating thoughts & feelings about self-worth, relationships, and patterns of choices that lead to dysfunctional behaviors. Clients learn to manage the underlying issues that interfere with family, social, vocational, or educational functioning.
