KELLY AKEHURST, LPC
WOMEN'S MENTAL HEALTH
HI, I'M KELLY
I'm glad you are here and appreciate the courage it takes to come to therapy.
I specialize in women's mental health in the treatment of anxiety, social anxiety, depression, perinatal and postpartum women’s mental health, narcissistic abuse, trauma, life transitions, relationship difficulties and divorce.
Working together, we will discover your strengths and the personal resources that can help achieve your desired goals. My approach to therapy is to partner with you to help build confidence and independence. I value the therapeutic relationship and feel that genuineness and warmth play a vital role in the healing process.
My goal is to create a supportive and safe space for exploration and change and to empower you to get back to living a more meaningful and fulfilling life. I provide skills to increase awareness of problematic patterns that lead to feeling 'stuck' and negatively impacts daily life including relationships, career, health and self-esteem.
I am a National Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor. I received my master's in Counseling from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology and have clinical experience working at Jacobi Medical Center, Hartford Healthcare and Center for Discovery Eating Disorder Treatment. I have specialized training as a Maternal Health Specialist through Postpartum Support International. I’m here to help and answer your questions.
I look forward to hearing from you!
I provide services throughout Fairfield County, and greater Connecticut.
