Ms. Maureen Lucinda Cassidy

Marriage & Family Therapist , MS , LMFT , LADC

(203) 701-7851
My ideal client is one who is seeking greater happiness and fulfillment in life. This person is dissatisfied, stuck, insecure, afraid, stressed or tired. The client has the answers within but has difficulty accessing them. I am here to help with that process. Depression, grief and/or anxiety are usually present in clients who struggle to "fit" into life. My job is to guide the client in making necessary changes s/he desires. I want to empower the individual vs. telling them what to do. Often trauma, intergenerational issues,addictions,abandonment/loss are part of the problem I need to address.
Existentially, I tap into a person's spirituality because those without a faith seem to struggle more in life. A purposeful life is more satisfying, so I explore this with a client, always going where they are. I join rather than try to sway. I draw out what they already know.
Clients entering my center usually comment on the comfortable, inviting atmosphere which includes a resident bird and a therapy dog. Realizing that people need to get in quickly once they decide on counseling and make that call, we offer an appointment within the week. Client satisfaction is most important.
