Tory Ault, LMFT-A

I am committed to collaborating with my clients to help strengthen their relationships with others and with themselves. Therapy is a journey to building a happier, more fulfilled life.  I see myself as an energetic, personable, and compassionate Marriage and Family Therapist.  I am passionate about the work I do with my clients and work to provide a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space.  Life gets messy sometimes, and that’s okay.  I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy and see those taking on the challenge of making changes in their lives as a sign of strength and wisdom.  

I work with individuals, couples, and families who are looking for assistance in coping with life struggles and being “stuck”.  My goal is to help people positively navigate the life challenges they are facing and transition into a happier state.  Issues I address include addiction, anxiety, depression, stress, and trauma.  In addressing those issues, I use a systemic approach (focusing on people’s relationships and interactions. My process includes evidence-based treatments, a structural and strategic family therapy model, solution-focused techniques, and cognitive-behavioral influenced methods.

 

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to a specific issue. There are many ways to solve a problem that a client is experiencing dependent on the client's individual experience. I collaborate with my clients to figure out the best personal approach for them to successfully make changes and achieve their goals. I see myself as a facilitator of change who provides guidance to clients in developing new skills, and identifying and utilizing their strengths, while working at their own pace. 

 

I graduated with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fairfield University in 2017, with honors.  I attended undergrad at St. Lawrence University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. Much of my field experience is in addiction, working with groups, families, and individuals who are in recovery.
