Relationships will not always be smooth sailing as there will be periods of rough seas that couples will have to navigate as well. I offer to help you process those moments that will pass.

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!

Hello, my name is Kelley Machado, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Connecticut. You may wonder what does Licensed Clinical Social Worker mean, what does that allow me to do? As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I have the unique opportunity to help people work through various points in their lives. In the years I have been a social worker I have worked with various populations of people from many socioeconomic, cultural, and racial backgrounds as well as people with various presenting concerns. I began my career working in the mental health system, then the criminal justice system, then onto medical social work including various medical issues as well as aging and end of life concerns. I believe people can experience difficulties with coping whenever faced with a transition in life. These changes can include monumental transitions that are both good or bad, like a new job, new family members, loss, separations, disappointments, traumatic events, etc. These types of experiences can cause psychosocial distress which can have far-reaching impacts on many aspects of our lives. I work with my clients who include children, adults, couples, and families to find healthy coping methods in order to gain a healthier perception of themselves which can help to strengthen their relationships with themselves and others so they can find themselves as comfortable, secure, and whole. I take time to get to know each of my clients on an individual basis so that I can tailor approaches to care because I have learned that not one approach impacts and helps all clients. I have been trained and adopted many approaches to provide therapeutic support including cognitive-behavioral, attachment theory, developmental theory, trauma theory, and dialectical behavioral theory. Change is not easy and embarking on change takes a tremendous amount of courage and actions. I congratulate you on your wish, strength, and wisdom for seeking help and taking this first step towards making a change in your life. If you are prepared to move beyond wishes and intentions to action and fulfillment- I am here to empower and support you to achieve your goals. I would love to help you reach your goals, whatever that may be in life so you can move forward

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.

I have been a clinical social worker for over 20 years and began my career in the Boston area. I have been practicing in Connecticut since 2008. 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.

Hi there! I'm Gily and I am glad you found me. Are you a mama feeling the invisible load of motherhood? Are you finding it hard to connect with your family and children because of burnout? Are you losing your cool too easily these days? Or are you a new mama feeling overwhelmed with life with a new baby? As a mother myself, I can say I’ve been on the other side of the motherhood trenches (and still am from time to time) and there’s nothing more isolating than navigating parenthood with limited support. I help mothers in all stages of their motherhood helping to regain joy and control back into their lives. Parenting is not easy, and together we can identify ways to overcome specific challenges and stressors. With my client-centered and nurturing approach, I'll provide you with a safe place, free from shame and judgment, for you to share your feelings. Whether you have a strong-willed child, suffer from depression or anxiety, carry most of the child-rearing tasks, or simply need someone to talk to, I'm here for you. Together we can get you to be the mother you want to be.

There are lots of ups and downs in life… twists… and turns. Some people choose to navigate difficulties alone. However, you are likely reading this because you are tired of doing it all by yourself. You’re thinking about a little help and support. Reaching for help is a wise thing. It is a sign of health that I value deeply. I am Jim Hughes. I have over 30 years of experience as a Specialty Clinician. I'm a former faculty member of the UMASS STRESS REDUCTION CLINIC that was featured on Bill Moyers' Healing and the Mind. I got my start working with Children at a crisis shelter, Casa De los Ninos, and in the trenches at The Arizona Children’s Home in Tucson Arizona. Moved by the profound transformations I witnessed, I moved east and attended graduate school as I worked at Wellspring, a long-term therapeutic community in Bethlehem Connecticut with mentor Richard Beauvais. Upon graduation, I worked for the renowned UMASS STRESS REDUCTION CLINIC with Jon Kabat-Zinn teaching meditation and stress reduction in the hospital. In all my endeavors, mindfulness-based stress reduction is the key ingredient to help heal through difficult emotional and medical issues, challenging adult relationships, intimacy issues, anxiety, depression, and internet and pornography addiction. In addition, I am particularly interested in helping people with chronic stress and anxiety and medical problems such as panic attacks, stress, anxiety, heart disease, hypertension, A1C issues, diabetes, chronic pain, cancer and other medical issues.
