As an Adjunct Professor, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor with more than 18 years experience, I believe the best way to conduct therapy is through understanding the relationship you have with yourself first. This relationship then translates to happier connections with others including parents, spouse, partner, co-workers, and co-dependent relations including various addictions. By improving your relationships in all aspects of your life, you will see results in decreasing your anxieties and depression. Located in Torrington (glass building). Accepting HUSKY, BCBS, etc.

When life is touched by illness or loss, therapy can be a compass to help you navigate a changed reality. Clients come to me for help with the emotional and practical concerns that arise with illness, challenging medical diagnoses and/or loss. Through therapy and counseling, I help clients adjust to a changed reality and to optimize quality of life. My clients are individuals who may also be patients, caregivers, family members, and other relations. I see healthcare workers for personal and professional concerns related to illness and loss.
In choosing a therapist, ask someone trusted, but remember they have their own biases. Consider someone State Licensed and check their complaint or malpractice history. Inquire about negotiating a "self pay fee", your therapist will work for you, not your insurance company. Look for someone with more life experience than you. Look for someone who is a parent, is married or has experienced divorce, has lived with grief or watched their own parents age. Request an initial consultation session and ask about professional experience and certifications. Remember, the therapist relationship fit is most important to counseling success. lastly, listen to your conscience,
