My Approach to Helping

Therapy can effectively help you navigate many of life's challenges. To get the most out of therapy, you need the right therapist- a person you trust, who makes you feel cared for, and who is skilled at helping you make the changes you crave. The team at Tides of Mind Counseling is experienced with a variety of treatment modalities. They offer down-to-earth approaches and caring professionals to help navigate life's difficulties. Tides of Mind therapists help you feel safe, supported, and "held" throughout the counseling process.

The exemplary treatment services at Tides of Mind Counseling extend to Psychological Evaluations and on site Medication Management.

The therapists at Tides of Mind Counseling have worked extensively with teens, children, couples, adults, and families. Founded by Iolanda Marucci in 2014, Tides of Mind Counseling rapidly expanded to two office locations in Waterbury & Torrington, CT. They offer creative approaches, including mindfulness and meditation, horticulture therapy, aromatherapy, art and music therapies and other creative modalities for clients struggling with depression, anxiety or stress.

Tides of Mind Counseling is conveniently located in Waterbury and Torrington near the highway and with accessible public transportation. Both offices offer a tranquil spa-like space so clients can feel relaxed from the moment they walk through the door.
