Professional statement

Aimee Muth is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Old Greenwich, CT who specializes in chronic illness and medical conditions, addiction, including alcohol, opioid use, and tobacco and nicotine (vaping) cessation, life transitions, anxiety, caregiver support, trauma, and loss and grief. She works with teens, couples, and adults across the lifespan. She also has extensive experience working with young women who are feeling isolated.

Aimee takes an eclectic approach to therapy with a focus on the relationship between her and her clients. This includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, Supportive Therapy, and Family Systems. She meets her clients where they are and offers them a space where they can explore who they are and what they want out of life. She also teaches them healthier coping skills to navigate whatever challenges they may be facing. When working with clients with a history of addiction, Aimee primarily utilizes Motivational Interviewing and helps her clients discover external motivators for needing to stop.

Aimee offers a safe, nonjudgmental space where clients can feel comfortable being vulnerable and begin their path towards healing. Outside of private practice, she works at NY Presbyterian Hospital, where she has worked for almost two decades. She received her MSW from the Columbia University School of Social Work and completed post-grad training and certification in addiction counseling and palliative care and bereavement. She also has done tobacco cessation training. Her office is located near the Old Greenwich train stop.


Message to clients

Therapy is most productive when the relationship between client and therapist allows for honesty and a feeling of safety.  The time with your therapist should allow you to be yourself - able to express your thoughts and feelings without concern of judgment.  I look forward to learning more about what's important to you and how I can work with you to help you meet your goals.
