Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Certified Medical Family Therapist
Certified Perinatal Mental Health Specialist
Hi, I'm Destiny Gillman, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Connecticut. I help individuals, couples and families all over Connecticut and New York to build resilience to the challenges that life inevitably throws their way. I strive to help my clients feel more confident in making the choices to get them where they want to go so that they can live the life they want and deserve. I commend you for taking this first step, and hope that together we can find a way to help you live the life you desire!
I realize that life can be very overwhelming at times. We all have to face whatever life may send our way, tolerate uncertainty, learn from our past mistakes, go after what we want, work through past painful experiences and take care of ourselves and the people we love. Sometimes this can feel like it is too much for just one person to manage, particularly if there are parts of your past that are still holding you back. Please allow me the honor of helping you to navigate the difficulties of life and easing some of the burden that has been placed on you.
What I Specialize In
Have you spent the last several years following the plan you had laid out for your life, when suddenly something in your life took an unexpected turn? This drastic shift may stem from a change in an important relationship, a new medical diagnosis or entering parenthood.
Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, disappointed or devastated that things haven't turned out the way you envisioned?
You know you need to embrace these unexpected changes. But when it comes to accepting the cards that you were dealt, you feel like you were robbed of your ideal situation.
It's frustrating to feel the need to be open to new possibilities when all you want is to live the life you had planned for.
You are looking for a therapist that can help you maintain the best version of you and combine it with coping and accepting your new reality.
It is possible to feel content and in control of your life again. I will help you grieve the loss of the way you expected life to be and cultivate an optimistic view of the future.
You can find peace with your new normal.
Contact me today to set up your first appointment. Give yourself the opportunity to experience the emotional wellness and the healthy relationship that you desire!
You are not alone. You are not to blame. With help, you will be well.
