Professional statement

Dr. Michelle Peacock is a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist in Greenwich, CT who specializes in anxiety disorders, depression, relationships, trauma, and anger management. She enjoys helping adults, teens, and children ages six and up learn powerful, healthy tools to help them cope now and in the future. She sees individuals, couples, and families.

Dr. Peacock also offers biofeedback, which is a mind-body technique that provides immediate visual and auditory feedback on the impact of stress on the body. These tools and techniques teach you to regulate your heart rhythm pattern and autonomic functioning. You will feel empowered using these simple and effective interventions as you learn to self-regulate your emotions and increase mental acuity, insight, and resilience.

Although Dr. Peacock is trained in a variety of empirically supported techniques, she takes an individualized approach to understand her clients, viewing each client as unique with personal life experiences belonging only to them. She frequently utilizes elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Attachment-Based Therapy. When working with children, Dr. Peacock uses play therapy to help them express their emotions and thoughts. She also helps her young clients learn social and problem-solving skills to cope with life’s challenges.

Dr. Peacock cares deeply about each of her clients and is there to help them make positive changes in their lives. She received her PhD from Drexel University and completed an inpatient internship at Friends Hospital. Her residency provided her with specialized training in forensic evaluations involving legal issues such as high-conflict divorce, bullying and violence risk assessment. She looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

Everyone has the potential to make positive changes in their lives. Making those changes is more likely when you find a therapist who is empathetic and authentic—someone with whom you can feel a connection with and trust. Although I am trained in a variety of empirically-supported techniques, I take an individualized approach to understanding my clients, viewing each client as unique with personal life experiences belonging only to you. In my office you will feel safe and also challenged to reach your goals. You will learn tools to be your own therapist, cope with life's challenges and stressors, and live a healthier, more fulfilled life.
