One-On-One Anxiety Therapy & Grounded Healing for Women in Connecticut
Less Distress… ASAP
Maybe you’re feeling stuck.
You’re a working professional… You’re a motivated high achiever, and you’re almost definitely “the strong friend.” Maybe you’re already a mom, or you’re thinking about kids in the future.
You aren’t doing bad! But you wouldn’t say you’re doing great, either. And the moments of anxiety and overwhelm are coming just a little more often than you’d like.
It’s starting to feel like your anxiety, your negative thoughts, and your trusty, well-worn behavior patterns are getting in the way of that elusive thing called “your best life.”
You’re looking for a space to process your experiences and—most of all—learn to manage. Because you know a mental health challenge doesn’t have to define you…
And you don’t plan to let it.
You’re Not Weird (I Promise)
If you told me that you..:
- Often find yourself stuck in a cycle of anxiety and flat-out worry about the future;
- Spiral into self-doubt on a regular basis;
- Feel like you could be a contortionist with the amount of time you spend bending over backward to meet everyone else’s needs (while ignoring your own);
- Have a serious fear of failure that often stops you from even taking the first step; or
- Wish you could figure out how to set better boundaries and feel calmer and more centered…
…then I’d say, “Cool! You’ll fit in around here perfectly.”
Hey! I’m Rachel, Connecticut’s Grounded Therapist.
I understand all of this because I’ve experienced it, too. So have most—if not all—of my clients.
The anxiety really can start to feel insurmountable… But it isn’t. You aren’t weird or broken, and you can absolutely manage your mental health through anxiety therapy and thrive as the powerhouse human you are.
You just need the right tools in your toolbox. That’s what I’m here for.
So hey! I’m Rachel Dash-Dougherty, and I help women in Connecticut break through cycles of anxiety, shame, perfectionism, and fear of failure.
We’re learning to embrace our inner strength over here, folks, realize our self-worth, and learn to stress less through science-backed strategies (and maybe a little shake 🧂of the woo-woo*, too).
*If you consider holistic tools and strategies like yoga, breathwork, mindfulness, and getting out into nature “woo-woo,” anyway.

I Offer Anxiety Therapy for Women in Connecticut
Therapy for anxiety is an effective, evidence-based approach that can help free your energy up for the things you actually want to focus on.
When we work together, I’ll help you develop the following skills and abilities:
🌳 Be able to take care of yourself without second-guessing your decisions or worrying that you’ll be perceived as selfish or difficult.
🌳 Get comfortable with saying “no” and ditching your people-pleasing ways.
🌳 Address the perfectionism and fear of failure adding all that extra stress and pressure to your everyday life.
🌳 Have less anxiety about the future and kick your procrastination tendencies to the curb.
🌳 Gain the emotional awareness and self-compassion that help you set the boundaries you need, cultivate better and less stressful relationships, and let go of the things (and people) that just aren’t serving you anymore.
