Effective Therapy Sessions – On Your Own Couch!
Welcome to Connecticut Online Counseling! A lot more of our lives happen online these days, so it only makes sense that people would be interested in engaging with counselors online too. As a member of the Stokes Counseling Services family, our team of clinicians have been offering residents of Naugatuck and surrounding communities effective therapy services in our comfortable office for years. We even offer in-home therapy services for participants in our FAM Program, and now, we can broaden the reach of our skilled team across the whole state of Connecticut. If you’re ready to experience the same compassionate and effective therapy services from the comfort of your home, it’s time to give Connecticut Online Counseling a call.

Dani Dimitrova – Licensed Clinical Social Worker
We repeat what we don’t repair. Often we find ourselves facing the same challenges over again. Perhaps our once-helpful solutions have turned into damaging patterns. I want to help you understand what nourishes these unhealthy relationships with ourselves and with others. In doing so, you will develop the awareness to overcome these destructive cycles.
As a licensed clinical social worker, my intention is to empower you to cultivate tools to navigate your inner and outer worlds. I provide an environment of active listening, positive regard, and empathic authenticity. Together, we will explore conscious and unconscious patterns of thoughts, behaviors, and relationships. My goal is to assist you in gaining insight and practicing skills to foster change and growth and rediscover well-being.
