Virginia Williamson is a licensed marriage and family therapist and the founder of Collaborative Counseling Group. She began her career in early childhood education, working with children who had been identified as struggling behaviorally and quickly realized that she had desire to have a deeper understanding of the family. This desire and curiosity led her to systems theory and the pursuit of a degree in marriage and family therapy at Fairfield University. As Virginia embarked upon her clinical training and practice, her natural bent toward working with children and mastering the complex interplay of families evolved into a specific love of working with couples. This is truly Virginia’s most rewarding therapeutic endeavor. She believes that the couple is not only the core dyad upon which a family is built, but it is also at the heart of developing insight into ourselves as individuals as we all seek to be in relationship. Being an entrepreneur has sparked an interest in developing skill in addressing the psychological and emotional challenges/milestones unique to small business ownership, particularly those in a helping profession. Virginia’s current focus, beyond continuing to expand her couples’ work and providing therapy to therapists and self starters, is offering clinically sound and fervent supervision to fellow psychotherapists. Just as strong individual selves and families are built on relationship, so too is strong therapy, whether you are in the therapist’s chair or the client’s.

“Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we’re all in this together.”
