Tracy Colsen Schaperow, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Schaperow Psychology Center
Adjunct Assistant Professor in Psychology at Connecticut College

Deciding to seek psychological services can be a difficult step to make. Whether looking for therapy or an evaluation, the right clinician/client match is essential. As a psychologist, my goal is to respond to my clients with compassion, empathy, and in a non-judgmental way, as well as stay up-to-date with the most effective treatment interventions. 

Many of the people that I have successfully treated have struggled with low self-esteem, assertiveness difficulties, loss/grief, guilt, eating disorders, emotional eating, anxiety, panic, life transitions, divorce/separation, obsessive thinking, & depression.
