Announcement icon I am the only person at my private practice. It is easy to keep it Covid safe. Teletherapy sessions available if desired.
I'm a retired Navy Drug/Alcohol Counselor with 22 years' experience in varied clinical settings. Now I have my own private practice in a quiet, peaceful setting. This is not fast food nor a high-volume dealership. I offer counseling/psychotherapy in a friendly, supportive, non-hurried, non-judgmental environment. I'm an optimist. I listen, assist, guide, teach and help others to the best of my abilities. Depression, anxiety, substance misuse, Diabetes and other health issues plus general life issues do not define a person. Change is possible. My hope is to help each client in my practice attain their personal goals.
I have many areas of interest. Citing a "Specialty" is too limiting. Experience teaches me that presenting issues don't have one specific origin. Depression, anxiety, mood disorders, substance misuse, relationship issues don't develop from a single experience where just one specialty will effectively address it for positive change.
Navy trained Drug/Alcohol Counselor. CT Drug/Alcohol Counselor and Licensed Clinical Social Worker. 24 years honorable active service US Navy. Owner/only employee at Anchor Counseling LLC. American Diabetes Association Behavioral Health clinician. Trained/experienced Integrated Behavioral Healthcare clinician understanding how physical health impacts mood.

Rik (Richard) D. Ginty's Groups

Open to forming groups depending on need.

Presently no active groups. Personally love group work as experience has taught me that an active, working group is an incredibly powerful Recovery tool. Have experience facilitating many varied groups and I'm very open to starting groups clients express interest in. Groups I have facilitated include: Substance abuse, Co-occurring Disorders, Relapse Prevention, Bipolar support, Men's/Women's issues, Trauma focused, Family group/educational supports, older adult issues.
