My strengths-based approach combines cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy, solution-focused techniques and holistic ways to treat your entire being including mind, body, and spirit. My approach also embraces a positive view of queer identities and relationships while addressing the negative influences that homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism have on the lives of the LGBTQ community. I personally understand there can be complicated feelings towards your own sexuality/gender identity along with the struggles of being a queer person of color, and can help you navigate these adversities.

For a lot of people the idea of therapy can be scary and daunting. A successful therapy session is one where you leave recognizing your own inner and outer resources to deal with the ups and downs of life. Think of it more as a problem-solving workshop. At Brodsky Wellness LLC we will work together to uncover your own strengths to deal with the challenges that arise through life. You will have the space to feel vulnerable and explore any fears or tough feelings that you don’t feel comfortable sharing with the people you love. Understanding your own story may take some bravery, and I would be happy to accompany you on that journey.

You feel like something is holding you back...whether it's at work, in your relationship, as a parent, or just in where you thought your life would be by now. For the most part your life, career, or marriage is ok;but you envision better. You want to feel the depth and intimacy you once felt with your partner and stop the ongoing arguments. You want to stop holding back at work; or feeling inadequate as a parent because you just don't know what to do next about your child's behavior. You are stressed and overwhelmed, feeling like no one truly gets it. Your relationships are well enough, but you are missing depth, connection and meaning. Perhaps you are waiting for motivation to strike you? As you wait, the days, months, and years fly by and you remain stuck, vowing that next week...month...year...or time, things will be different. Why wait? You deserve NOW. You want to thrive in your life and change the way things feel at this moment. You want to stop repeating the same patterns, arguments, and situations that keep you unhappy. Perhaps you can do it alone, but what if nothing changes? There is a better solution. Seeking outside support is a sign of strength and readiness for change

Choosing to engage in therapy is a decision that one makes for a variety of reasons, often when things become hard, when emotions are overwhelming and seem insurmountable. Maybe you feel ready to make a change, but are unsure how to start. I employ a direct, warm and compassionate style of therapy, which supports and empowers individuals to develop a healthy sense of self and more satisfaction in their lives and relationships.

The atmosphere of my office is warm, accepting and open. Clients in my practice receive an initial assessment which includes their needs, goals, and dreams. My clients are individuals, couples and families who are experiencing problems with life and their inter-personal relationships. They are seeking relief from these problems and hoping to achieve peace of mind. I view a counselor not as a authority figure, but, as a guide, to suggest, question and assist in their journey. My office hours are early afternoon to mid-evening.

What type of Middletown 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Middletown?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
