ABOUT YOUR THERAPIST
Being an adult sounded way better when you were a kid, huh? Reality is not as cool- battling the urge to press the snooze button one more time, fighting through a pile of toys, laundry, or cats to get to the coffee maker for some of that life giving elixir, spending eight (or more) hours at a job that you have just to pay the bills, and coming home knowing you’ll have to do it all again tomorrow. The feelings of stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loneliness, or lack of control that goes along with being a grown up just don't seem to go away.
That's where I come in. Hi! My name is Amee Perkowski-Marcantonio, LMFT, owner of Between Two Shores Counseling. As your therapist, I will offer a safe, non-judgmental place where you can come to vent about your partner, mother, boss, kids, or anyone else that has ticked you off. Together we will work on coping skills and tools that can make life feel a bit less chaotic. I also have a past and a story, and if it will help your therapeutic process, I am willing to share how therapy has helped me. I try and make therapy a fun place, bringing in imagination and humor, so you will look forward to coming back to every week. It is an honor for me to walk with you on this part of the journey of your life. You may even catch a glimpse of my two cats, Liberace and Tanner (who have no idea what "personal space" means)!
I received my undergraduate degree from Southern Connecticut State University in 2017, majoring in creative writing and sociology, and my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2020, also from Southern. My specialties are working with women, the elderly, and the LGBTQ+ community. As well as being a therapist, I am also an INELDA trained End of Life Doula, supporting both those who are going to cross the veil as well as their loved ones. When I am not being a therapist, I enjoy crafting, reading, sunsets on Cape Cod, binge watching trash TV and true crime documentaries, playing with any animal that comes my way, and being mildly obsessed with Harry Potter and Disney. Oh, and drinking way more coffee than I probably should be!
