Sherri L. O'Shea

Welcome!  I'm Sherri O'Shea, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Founder of Blossom Grove Therapy. My group practice is dedicated to providing psychoeducation, support, and compassionate guidance to adults and adolescents struggling with OCD and other anxiety disorders.

 

If you struggle with OCD or anxiety, you know how hard it can be to cope and fully engage in life.  You may notice that you tend to avoid specific situations out of fear, resulting in missed opportunities to experience things that are meaningful to you.  In therapy, we will work together to identify your core values and use these values to guide your actions and decisions. My goal is to create a genuine connection and help you lead a full and meaningful life even in the presence of anxiety or OCD. 

 

I am a certified provider of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for the treatment of OCD and utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Attachment-Based Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for the treatment of Anxiety and Depression. I also have specialized training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Perinatal Loss & Grief, and Circle of Security Parenting.

I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Syracuse University in 2004 and am endorsed by the CT Infant Mental Health Association as an Infant Mental Health Mentor. I have worked in the field of mental health with adults, children and families for over 15 years.

Prior to starting my own Private Practice, I provided outpatient psychotherapy to children and families, provided mental health services to pregnant and postpartum women and their families and acted as supervisor of a community-based maternal and child health program.

Sarah Thibodeau

Hi! I'm Sarah Thibodeau, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Infant Mental Health Specialist.  In our fast-paced and overstimulating world, it's common to overlook our own needs. I know that the demands of daily life are often overwhelming and can hinder your efforts to prioritize self-care. Taking the initiative to seek support when you are distressed is a significant step, and I'm so glad you're here.

 

I specialize in working with adolescents, teens, and adults who are grappling with issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem, and the desire to make positive changes in their lives and relationships. Additionally, I offer support to those navigating life transitions and individuals at various stages of parenting. 

 

Specialties include the treatment of anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). In addition, I use Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Acceptance-based approaches. 

 

I am endorsed as an Infant Mental Health Specialist, through the Association of Infant Mental Health.  This endorsement recognizes culturally sensitive, relationship-based, infant and early childhood mental health learning and work experiences. 

 

I am passionate in helping parents in the perinatal period and beyond, as well as working alongside teens and adolescents on issues such as self esteem and social skills. I strive to create a warm, empathetic and judgment-free space, and will partner with you to create an authentic relationship throughout treatment.
