At times, life can become overwhelmingly stressful, burdened with numerous demands and high expectations that may feel insurmountable. Whether you're dealing with individual obstacles, relationship hurdles as a couple, or searching for guidance in supporting your child, now is the moment to seek assistance. It's important to recognize that asking for help is a strength, not a weakness, and it's a crucial step towards finding balance and peace in your life. I specialize in issues around family/relationship conflicts, anxiety/panic, eating disorders, depression and major life adjustment issues


Embarking on the journey to find the right support starts with connecting with a therapist who resonates with your needs. I'm Daisy Velez, a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW), with a wealth of experience in assisting teens, adults, and families navigate life's complexities. My approach to therapy is centered around a collaborative, person-centered method. I believe in meeting clients exactly where they are, customizing treatment goals to align with their unique situations. My goal is to equip you with the insights, skills, and tools necessary for enhancing your self-understanding, reducing symptoms/stressors, and ultimately elevating your quality of life!

In my practice, I employ a diverse array of clinical strategies, including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused techniques, and dialectical behavioral tools. My aim is to foster a supportive atmosphere that encourages open dialogue about your emotions and devises concrete, practical strategies to achieve your aspirations. Our sessions might involve role-playing or homework assignments, but we'll consistently revisit our strategies to ensure our approach remains aligned with your evolving goals and needs! I am Bilingual, I fluently speak Spanish and English. 

Let’s initiate a conversation to explore how we can collaborate towards your wellbeing! Driven by a passion for facilitating personal and familial growth, I'm dedicated to empowering you with the skills needed for positive transformation! I am currently offering telehealth sessions to provide flexible and accessible support.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Khalid M (Bridgeport, CT)

Fantastic company that deeply cares for anyone privileged enough to be a client. They are dedicated to people becoming their best selves possible! The Therapist and Life Coaches at Awaken The Power Therapy are human centered and highly skilled!

Nancy Wells (Ridgefield, CT)

I found my experience at Awaken The Power Therapy pleasing and worthwhile I left a local practice after feeling un-cared for and judged. From the onset of making an appointment with the front end to seeing my therapist the process was smooth and easy. I found the staff delightful and my therapist was able to help guide me to a more fulfilling life. I have referred my husband and co-workers to Awaken The Power and they have had similar experiences! They're a God Send! 

Ann C (West Haven, CT)

I have been a client at Awaken The Power Therapy for over five years. The care and support I have received has been life changing!
