About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Connecticut with over 3 years of experience working as a clinician. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical/emotional trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, mindfulness, and trauma informed care. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Damaris is the best. My wife and I have gone to another Councelor that did not go well so we stopped. She is amazing and we look forward to meeting with her every week. She is one of the best
