I have been counseling addicts and alcoholics since 1993. I have inpatient, detox, outpatient and intervention experience. I have completed many assessments for teens at college that have been sent hiome for evaluations and treatment if needed. DWI and DUI assessments and education can be done at YOUR convenience and not according to an agencys schedule. My ideal client is a motivated client, that want's to make their life better, or recognizes that his or her substance abuse/addiction is causing major disruptions in their life. I also enjoy the challenge of the unmotivated client that I can help through the stages of change. Individual, group counseling and random drug testing (on site) are regular practices, family work and education are important services that I provide as well. I work closely with Psychiatrist's in Greenwich Ct, New Canaan Ct, and NYC when needed. These are trusted addiction specialist psychiatrists. I look forward to helping you and or your family member. When I am working with a client I become available 24 hours a day.

I work with high performing business professionals who find themselves faced with a significant personal challenge. The pressure created by the intense nature of their work, the schedule and time constraints, and even how the language of the industry influences the way one thinks about solving problems and can make recovery more challenging than it needs to be. As a former senior executive in the pharmaceutical industry, who became a counselor after a successful business career, I bring a unique understanding of the pressures and challenges top executives face.

I work with clients who require a high level of discretion and confidentiality due to being in the public eye or having an executive position. I work with OCD, anxiety, depression and substance abuse/addiction. I am experienced with people from all walks of life, belief systems and sexual orientation/lifestyles. I truly belief we are not defined by the way we are in the current habit of living. While change is hard, it is possible and you don’t have to live with obsessive thoughts and actions, debilitating depression, paralyzing anxiety or being chained to substances in order to function.

What type of New Canaan mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in New Canaan?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
