Nikki Rafala Counselor Connecticut

Nikki Rafala


Life throws us challenges almost daily and we aren’t always equipped to deal with them ourselves. My approach for therapy and clients is to work with a spirit of acceptance and enthusiasm, expecting to learn from your strengths and aspirations, your relationships and relevant past experiences as they contribute to your current difficulties.

Establishing a strong therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable is crucial for a successful psychotherapy process. In this process, I provide my professional knowledge and input to support you in overcoming the barriers to enjoying a fulfilling life.

Over the years I have worked with children, adolescents and adults from various nationalities presenting with a wide range of psychological problems, including depression, anxiety, ptsd, complex traumas, addiction and LGBTQ issues. I provide individual, family, marital and group psychotherapy.

I utilize CBT, DBT, talk therapy and narrative therapies among other modalities to offer the best clinical individualized treatment.
