PROFILE

"My job entails helping children and parents learn how to use the power they have inside themselves to work through any variety of challenges. My work is most rewarding when I'm no longer needed, when families confidently say, 'We've got this!"

Darby Fox has been a therapist for over 20 years providing individual and group therapy in both non-profit and private settings. She currently divides her time between pro-bono work for Horizon's, a non-profit agency working with at-risk kids, and private practice.

She received a BA from Middlebury College, graduating cum laude in Sociology and Biochemistry. After Middlebury she went on to graduate from Columbia University summa cum laude, earning her Master's degree in Social Work. Since Columbia she's pursued extensive post master's specialized training from Columbia University, Yale Child Study Center, NYU Silver School of Social Work, Mel Levine's All Kind's Of Minds Institute, Harvard Medical School and The Ackerman Institute for the Family.

Darby grew up with 5 siblings in a small town in the Rocky Mountains. Before settling in Connecticut, she lived in Vermont, New York, Texas, and New Jersey. She has raised 4 children: 2 girls and 2 boys, ages 24, 23, 21, and 17. Her experiences have given her a deep empathy for children and families from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds.



 (Darby) has donated her time and expertise to dozens of Horizons students facing crises ranging from school avoidance to severe depression…She has dedicated countless hours—at all times of the day and night—to help children and their families navigate complex emotional situations.  She is an incredible gift and her talents change the lives of our families!

 From the moment I first sat down with Darby I felt completely comfortable and at ease. What she has to say is insightful and enables me to come to a clear understanding about what I am feeling, about how I am feeling in that moment about whatever is on my mind. She is relatable and empathetic, something that makes sharing personal thoughts less daunting, easier. Darby has been incredibly helpful to me throughout my high school years and has become one of the few people that I can confidently and comfortably confide in, knowing that my sessions with her will end in a solution to whichever problem i am dealing with at a given moment.

 Our son’s test scores were truly abominable a few years ago; markers of an illiterate. Now they are competitive. He loves school and he understands so completely that hard work and self-advocacy are key ingredients to success in any arena…But most importantly, he is happy—happier, in many ways, than he has ever been. Thank you, Darby!
