Professional statement

Kevin Makarewicz is a therapist in Connecticut who specializes in helping clients navigate such issues as trauma, anxiety, depression, family concerns, relationship stressors and difficulties, and social emotional development. Many young adults seek Kevin's support when facing general life transitions that are proving difficult, such as launching a career or leaving their parents' home.

Kevin's practice is also open to families, including those with children ages four and up. His work with these clients often pertains to attachment disorders, bonding issues, and general parenting issues; he also sees children with ADHD and boundary issues.

Kevin has been in the field for over three decades, and has developed a unique approach to treatment that melds various body-oriented and expressive therapies, including EMDR, music therapy, biofeedback, Gestalt, mindfulness practices, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).

Kevin's practice is located in Old Greenwich, and he is also able to connect with clients across the state via remote therapy. In sessions, he presents as warm, engaging, and mindfully curious. He looks forward to meeting you.
