Dory Dzinski is a nationally certified (NCC) Connecticut licensed professional counselor (LPC). Her passion is working together with individuals or couples to help enhance their lives by working through challenges and making room for a lighter, more enjoyable life.
Spirituality is an area that is often neglected in counseling and psychotherapy. While it may not be the desire of every client, Dory provides the opportunity to bring spirituality into the sessions of those who find it meaningful and helpful on their life path. Spirituality is not religion, although some individuals may express and experience their spirituality through religion. As we emerge and evolve, it is increasingly important to nurture our personalized and individualized spiritual selves.
Areas that she is particularly effective with are as follows:
Separation and Divorce
Loss of Self
Anger and Frustration
Dark Nights of the Soul
Psychospiritual Causation of Illness
Sessions are held at the lovely home office of Dory Dzinski located at 47 Maple Avenue in the historic Collinsville section of Canton, CT. Her home is a federal colonial built in 1870, and has wonderful and warm Victorian touches that help the client feel safe and secure. Note: there are two elderly greyhounds on site (Stormy and Lilly). CIGNA clients utilize another office located at 101 River Road in Canton.
Collinsville has recently received the honor of being in the Top 10 Coolest Little Towns in the U.S. It is a beautiful little town that offers opportunities for calming walks on the Rails to Trails, lunches at pretty little sites, interesting shopping at unique boutiques, kayaking and canoeing a half mile from her office, and other balancing adventures either before or after your session.
What is discussed in session, stays in session with the exception of a court order or mandatory insurance documentation, or the potential of harm to self or others.

My preference is for you to contact me via phone to let me know you are joining us; however, if you want to drop in, that’s fine, too. All individuals experiencing the loss of a loved one are welcome.

Divorced Womens Support Group
I facilitate support groups for divorced women on the second Tuesday of the month at the Hartford Hospital facility next to Friendly’s in Avon on Route 44. The meetings run from 6 to 8 p.m. There is no charge. My preference is for you to contact me prior to attending, but if you want to drop in, that’s just fine, too. Finding yourself alone again can be unsettling when so much has changed in your life. Join others who are single again due to divorce and learn tips for self esteem, coping mechanisms, discovering your individuality, and have some fun and companionship.
