I have experience in hospital settings, specifically a clinical focus in high-risk inpatient care, crisis management, treatment coordination, and adolescent and children mental health.
The reality of the daily struggles, life stressors, and individual burdens for many of us today, uproot our lives in various ways. It is a truth, that should be acknowledged and worked through. At Faithwell Counseling and Services, my vision is to provide clinical mental health services with integrity, compassion, and hospitality for all.

Some of the issues I address in therapy include: Child or Adolescent Issues, Chronic Illness, Coping Skill, Divorce/Separation, Domestic Abuse, Domestic Violence, Drug Abuse, Eating Disorders, Family Conflict, Parenting, Peer Relationships, Self Esteem, Self-Harming, Sexual Abuse, Substance Abuse, and much more.
I provide individual, family, couples and group therapy. I help my clients find constructive ways of addressing anxiety, depression, loss, family and relationship issues. By doing so I've learned many lessons along the way... one of these lessons is that we all seek compassion and understanding; a basic need in order to move forward under almost any circumstance.

When an individual is abusing substances, often times it manifests itself as chaos, unpredictability, and complete confusion. As a result, not only is the individual tormented, but the suffering extends to their family and loved ones. When this happens, confusion, anger, fear, and other uncomfortable emotions frequently arise in all parties involved, as a solution to this overwhelming problem seems unfathomable. To compound this issue, the substance abuse treatment industry can be incredibly difficult to navigate. Having worked in a wide variety of substance abuse treatment settings, I can help with this process.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Branford and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
