Empowered Connections was founded in 2013 by Deborah Duley, MSW, LMSW, with a rebellious spirit and a big dream of connecting women & girls everywhere through specialized mental health therapy.
We strongly believe that women need connection to heal and that where you have been, so have we. Where your story is our story!
We believe in connection, in the strength of women, that family (whatever that looks like for you) is our priority, in offering excellent customer service and that having the freedom to live the life we love, is paramount to everything else.
We’re excited to share a few of our media highlights that may be of interest to you!
