We all know life can be tough, and this is especially true for adolescents and young adults in our increasingly turbulent world. My clinic, Arete Psychological Services, is designed to address the special needs of adolescents, young adults, and their families. "Arete" is the ancient Greek word for excellence in all aspects of personhood. In the spirit of this idea, I am deeply committed to assisting young people capitalize on what is healthy and resourceful in their nature, in enabling them to use their existing abilities more effectively, to develop new life skills, and mature in positive directions.
I have had consistent success throughout Connecticut helping young people and their families. It is my goal and privilege to help adolescents and young adults regain control over their lives, define and pursue their genuine ambitions, and reconnect with the families that love and support them.
As a registered yoga teacher as well as psychologist, I strive to be a holistic practitioner of the healing arts. Bringing together the best of both evidence-based western medicine and the power of historical and modern mindfulness approaches works to create equanimity of mind, emotional balance, and skillful living.

Scott W Abbott's Groups

Yoga Therapy Parent Support Group

This group, scheduled to start at the end of September, is an 8 week series pairing a session of clinical discussion of parent's difficulties with troubled adolescents with a yoga-therapy session the following week. We will define and discuss salient parenting concerns and then present and practice yogic techniques that can serve as practical aids or solutions to those concerns.
