Are you ready to recapture the peace, serenity and fulfillment in life you once enjoyed?

We live in uncertain times. The cascade of recent events has left many of us reeling, feeling as though we’ve lost our sense of place. This is not only in our lives, but in the world at large. What we once took for granted—stability at work, in our relationships, with family and friends—seems to have evaporated, leaving us with an abiding sense of anxiety, depression and even fear, only amplifying what we may have already been feeling.

How is West Hartford Holistic Counseling Different?

Psychotherapy at West Hartford Holistic Counseling, like many mental health professionals, are acutely aware of what you’re experiencing. In many ways they are experiencing the same thing themselves. That puts each of them in the somewhat singular position of being able to meet you where you are and walk with you through this new reality with which we are all grappling in one way or another, while keeping an eye on concerns you may have been struggling with for quite some time.

So many of our clients come to us and say, “It’s like I don’t know how to do life, anymore.” Well, the truth is they often don’t, because, like you, the skills they developed over the years may no longer apply. How much would your experience change if someone could sit with you and say, “You’re not alone, so here’s a sort of different set of skills to work with and develop, along with what you already know.”

What We Believe?

At West Hartford Holistic Counseling, we believe everyone is not only able to bloom, but also thrive. It’s been said we were never meant to walk on this path alone. Let us help you return to yourself that also integrates a new and different place of peace, joy and personal fulfillment in your life.

Hi! I'm Shelly -

The Care Coordinator for West Hartford Holistic Counseling.

I’m happy to answer your questions and connect you with the best therapist for you. The easiest way to get started is to call for a consultation. I look forward to assisting you!

Questions about Starting Therapy?

People seek psychotherapy and counseling for many different reasons. You might feel unsatisfied and stuck in life and are unsure how to make changes to create a more satisfying life. Therapy is also a great tool for people who are going through a major transformation in life, which can feel unfamiliar, foreign and frightening. The experience may trigger old feelings or habits and may leave you feeling alone, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed and without direction.

Contrary to popular belief, therapy is not only beneficial when your life feels unmanageable. Counseling can be used in the same way as a life coach where you can seek growth and understanding of your own limitations and how to work past them.

A counseling session is a time to share what you are looking for out of life, get some specific feedback, set personal and/or professional goals and develop a plan to help you achieve them. A session will provide a snapshot of your current life situation to gain better insight of the issues that you are facing. This will help to identify where the issues and blocks originated from and why. This is all done in a safe, confidential and comfortable environment.

You will gain a better insight and understanding of who you are and the direction your life has taken. This is important because lack of understanding and appreciation for our lives can create patterns of limitation for ourselves. Understanding and appreciation for ourselves garners a sense of empowerment and joy in everything we do. This in turn reduces the amount of stress and anxiety we feel in daily life. Confidence is restored, communications with others improve, and you begin to move through life’s obstacles with less effort. An all over sense of health and well being is restored and life becomes more manageable and satisfying.

I had the privilege of working with an extraordinary therapist for individual counseling, and it was a truly remarkable experience. Dori had genuine empathy and created a safe and nurturing environment where I felt truly understood. With her expertise and guidance, I gained valuable insights into myself, and worked on effective coping strategies, and made significant strides in my personal growth journey. I wholeheartedly recommend this amazing therapist to anyone seeking transformative individual counseling. It's not often you come across such genuine and compassionate therapists like Ms. Dori.

Kimberly is amazing to work with. She's very authentic and compassionate. She's helped me a lot postpartum and I'd highly recommend her. I find the negative review odd as she doesn't work with kids (I know as I wanted her to work with my older daughter originally).

Absolutely do not trust your mental health to this woman. Cancelled my appointment without my knowledge within 5 hours of the appt time. Rescheduled the appt to her specifications without consulting me. Pulled my son out of school early for the appt she made, and she still didn't show up. These are zoom meetings so I guess they don't mean much to her.Needless to say, we have chosen to go with another provider, and I'm actually glad I found out what a waste of time it would have been going with this waste of time.
