Dr. Robin Wachs
Psychologist, PsyD
Welcome! It’s a big step to acknowledge that one could use some help. Whether you’re suffering from depression, anxiety, irritability or some other version of unhappiness or interpersonal conflict, you’ve already taken an important step, by seeking help. Even if you struggle with significant health issues or other difficult life circumstances, you have within you all that you need for greater fulfillment, joy, and empowerment. I will help you gain the understanding, new perspectives and tools you need to harness your own strength! In the process, you will likely feel greater clarity and a whole lot better!

I am a warm, seasoned, excellently-trained psychologist. I help individuals who are feeling unhappy in their lives, with themselves or with their relationships. My specialty area is helping people cope with chronic illness. I virtually always have a few clients with these challenges, while the majority of my clients struggle with other issues.
As a Professional Member of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), I have developed expertise in helping others cope with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and subsequently, with other chronic illnesses (eg. Cancer; Diabetes, …). I’ve seen how pain can initiate growth, and ultimately, strength. This belief guides my practice and optimism.

Kevin A. Root
Clinical Social Work/Therapist
As a psychotherapist who has been in practice for over twenty years, I have learned–without a doubt–about works most effectively in therapy, and how to achieve optimum results.These convictions have grown out of my experience not only as a successful therapist,but also out of many years of training and personal experience in the analytical methods known as Jungian depth-psychology. The Jungian approach begins with an understanding of the human PSYCHE; that is, both the conscious, and, perhaps most importantly, the unconscious mind must be understood.

In addition to presenting problems, a person’s DREAMS matter very much. However,since most people tend to ignore, or do not remember their dreams,there is no expectation that dreams will be included. I can work with or without dreams, but encourage people to remember them for best results.
Today, there is an epidemic of doctors who too readily prescribe medication for psychological problems These medications can be helpful, but too often they are only band-aids. Psychological problems require our deepest psychological understanding, and not only medications that often dull or numb the issues out of awareness.

***ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** I specialize in working with adult women, children and adolescent girls experiencing trauma, anxiety and addiction. In therapy, I will help explore how past events may be impacting you in the present. Often the stressful events we endure in childhood or adulthood manifest through symptoms of anxiety, depression, performance issues, flashbacks, relationship issues, addiction or overall feelings of hopelessness. I believe that everyone has everything within to heal. My role is to guide you on the healing journey and help you find your own internal strength and resourcefulness.

My clinical orientation is most impacted by my training as an EMDR therapist. I have completed EMDR basic training levels I and II. In addition, I am trained in using EMDR with substance abuse and compulsive behaviors as well as complex trauma and dissociation.
EMDR has been shown to be an effective therapy for panic attacks, grief performance anxiety, eating disorders, addiction , stress reduction and dissociation disorders. EMDR has been shown to be effective for children, teens and adults. Please call for a free consultation to explore more on how you can find hope and healing.

How will you know when your life has improved? What will be the signs? How will you be different? Can you envision that difference? With over 25 years of experience as a psychotherapist, I will use these questions to begin the process of helping you to find new possibilities for fulfillment and relief from emotional pain. I have extensive experience helping adults and adolescents with depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and panic disorders, addictions, interpersonal relationship problems, and life transitions. After identifying therapy goals, we’ll outline a plan to help you work through your barriers to change.

Therapy will move at your pace. We’ll use proven Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to break the connection between harmful thoughts and negative emotions. As you begin to learn new coping skills you’ll become more confident taking on the challenge of change.

As therapy progresses, we’ll look deeper to understand how presenting problems are sometimes a cover for other hidden problems often originating in childhood. Over the course of therapy we’ll revisit your therapy goals and evaluate your progress. I look forward to the possibility of working with you.

There are times when life can become overwhelming and it is in these times when it can be helpful to have support and guidance. My role as a therapist is to help you focus on what areas in your life you want to improve and then to assist you in doing so. I can offer practical ways to make changes while helping you look at situations from a different perspective. I believe that therapy is meant to be short term; a place for you to focus on yourself, make life changes and then move forward on your own.

I work with clients of all ages through individual work and family sessions when appropriate. I also offer couples counseling for marital/ relationship issues.

As a psychotherapist, I work most often with clients with symptoms of depression, those with symptoms of anxiety and couples with relationship challenges. My therapeutic approaches with my clients depend very much on the issues identified and may include: helping you to understand more about who you are and how you got to be who you are; a direct focus on changing your thinking and behavior patterns; exploring the network of relationships in your life.

I am a consulting psychologist to the Episcopal Church in Connecticut and the United Church of Christ in Connecticut. My practice includes many persons of faith, but all are welcome.
I am also an executive coach and enjoy working with clients to facilitate their professional development or address particular workplace or vocational concerns.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist
My recipe for therapy starts with three primary ingredients: a safe space, proven techniques and a plan tailored to fit each individual. Talking to a complete stranger about your struggles can be nerve wracking at first. I understand how important it is to feel comfortable with your therapist. So I create a warm, accepting space, free of judgement to help support your growth.

I have been helping people work on a variety of issues for more than a decade. Whether we are working on depression, anxiety, substance related problems or any other issue, I believe in using techniques that research has shown to be effective.
You are unique. Your struggles, goals, strengths and preferences are unique to you. For that reason I tailor every aspect of your therapy to you. I will work with you to identify your goals and help you conquer the challenges that stand between you and the life you want.
