Kristen C. Dew, LMFT
My name is Kristen Dew (She/Her or They/Them) and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Monroe, CT. I feel honored and privileged every day to help people work through struggles and see growth and change. From the second you walk into my office, my focus is on understanding what you need and helping you to grow. I think everyone is resourceful and resilient but there are blocks that prevent us from using those strengths. You already have what it takes to make change in your life and relationships, but sometimes need guidance to get there. Everyone struggles, life is hard, and there is no instruction manual.
In my office, you are free to fully express yourself. I welcome anyone who adheres to or deviates from the norm. I love working with alternative relationships, consensual/ethical non-monogamy, BDSM/kink, nerds/geeks/gamers of all kinds, vegan or vegetarians, outdoor enthusiasts, or those with other special interests that are an important part of your world. I love diversity and I am excited to get to know you! My clients would describe me as kind, curious, passionate, silly, and helpful.
Kristen is currently out of the office on Maternity leave. Kristen currently has a wait list and will begin accepting new clients for those seeking sex/sexuality therapy appointments in January 2021. If you would like to be added to this wait list please contact her by email directly at Kristen@GrowthTherapyLLC.com
*Kristen currently accepts Husky, Anthem, United Healthcare, Oxford, Optum, Connecticare, Harvard Pilgrim, Cigna, and Tricare insurances as well as out of network benefits and self-pay*
Josh Sabel, LPC
I am a licensed counselor with over fifteen years of professional experience working in the helping field. My background includes but is not limited to working in the fields of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and substance abuse. I commonly work with young adults and adults, and I welcome people of all identities.
I begin by asking you about your goals. My intention is to inform, support and challenge you to meet them. I draw upon a mix of therapeutic styles to tailor my approach to you and your needs. I view our sessions as a safe and non-judgmental time for us to have a conversation about who you are, where you are, and where you want to be in life. I believe that you are in charge of your direction and I appreciate you allowing me to be apart of your journey.
Please know, whatever you are comfortable discussing, I am comfortable discussing.

Morghan Cosentino, LPC
My name is Morghan Cosentino and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I often tell people that this means I am a professional compassionate listener. My initial goal when meeting you is to create a safe, trusting environment so that you can feel comfortable sharing your current struggles. Listening to your story is an opportunity for me to help you make decisions and move past obstacles you may be facing. I believe that we all need time and space to explore what we are facing in our lives and I will help you to realize and build on the tools you already have to overcome obstacles.
Thank you for allowing me to accompany you on your journey.

Allison Goduti, LCSW
Coming to the decision that a child in your life might benefit from therapy is a tough one. You may think, “they are just a kid,” or “maybe things will get better on their own,” and perhaps they may. When you and your child come to therapy, I will always greet you with warmth and calmness. I will help your child learn and practice skills to manage anxiety, anger, impulsivity, sadness, or to adjust to life’s changes. I know you and your child are doing the best you can with the tools available to you. Let’s load up those tool belts together!
Thank you for considering me as someone to walk with you on this journey. I look forward to hearing your story. YOU are the expert on you, your family and your experiences. I bring to the table my clinical knowledge and skills and we work as a collaborative team to help your child and your family gather tools and skills, reach goals, and grow as individuals and as a family.
