My Approach

phyllis fortunato lpc

Humans are programed to connect. We are wired to lean on others, to feel compassion and empathy, and to assist. I believe it feels better to have a guide, someone to shine a flashlight in the dark and to keep lookout, when we are exploring new territory. I see therapy as an exploration and opportunity to approach and make sense of ourselves and our relationships, to assist in healing the past, find comfort in the now, and create a better future.

My goal is to work collaboratively to support you in developing a better understanding of yourself in order to embrace your individual strengths and vulnerabilities to create desired life changes

For a little more insight on my approach, please take a look at why I chose the dandelion motif for  my logo.


We will work to clarify your cycles and patterns, to increase awareness of your feelings, and better understand the impact you have on yourself and others. You can expect to uncover your felt sense and how it informs negative thinking patterns, beliefs and behaviors. 

Together we'll work to strengthen your connections within yourself and/or within your relationships, trade unwanted patterns and behaviors for healthy ones, and heal echoes of the past to forge a fulfilling future.
