Founded in 2005, Westport Family Counseling (WFC) built a reputation for providing a high standard of care using a multimodality treatment approach. Two years later, WFC moved to the heart of downtown Westport and in 2006 WFC expanded again by opening a group therapy room and a children’s therapy playroom. In 2009, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) became WFC’s primary intervention for the treatment of trauma and PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder). Since then, WFC has grown to include specialists who offer a wide range of services, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), a higher level of EMDR certification, EMDR for trauma and posttraumatic disorder (PTSD), phobias, panic and anxiety, eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorders, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders…other specialties include Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, Group Therapies, and Nutritional Counseling. These modalities and treatments are part of our routine work with children, individuals, couples, and families. In 2013 and 2014, WFC began research and development of the Wellness Program, fusing paradigms to create a comprehensive protocol to provide different levels of support to meet the needs of our clients in different areas of their lives. Today, WFC is considered to be a progressive therapy group, using traditional and modern therapy, as well as an educational resource, offering presentations, workshops, webcasts, and webinars. As always, we are committed to providing the highest level of care.
WFC is devoted to creating client-centered, individualized treatment that strives to meet the highest level of care. In our aim to do so, we provide education for our clients and the greater Fairfield County community. The same mandate that has fostered Westport Family Counseling’s achievements still directs our goals.
