Those answers are the gateway to resolution. Call me and let’s talk.” I believe there are no broken people. Decisions made during difficult, emotional times are influenced by unsettled parts.

I hope we can work through this time together making this journey as helpful and special as possible. My passions have always aligned with helping others and listening in a compassionate, non-judgmental, and curious way. I find real change occurs when a person can fully explore their life in a holistic way. Whether it is current mental health symptoms or past traumas holistic healing is possible for everyone. I received my Master's in Mental Health Counseling at Fairfield University and achieved my LPC after completing 3000 hours in an outpatient clinic for substance abuse. I value a person-centered approach that focuses on strength-based and solution-focused techniques. I also incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy to be able to challenge unhealthy patterns that no longer serve you. Together we will identify goals, by exploring what is and is not working and be able to collaboratively come up with solutions and learning tools to better overcome barriers to success. We will work at your pace and readjust goals and steps as we go along. Through these techniques we will work together to identify maladaptive thoughts that contribute to avoidance behaviors and fears that keep us stuck, feeling even more anxious and often depressed. Overcoming life transitions, challenges, and uncertainty can be difficult and no one should have to face these decisions on their own!

Hi there, I’m Ashley 👋 Are you feeling overwhelmed, unsupported, stressed, or disconnected? Are you struggling to find balance in your life? Are you looking for a supportive place to be your authentic self? I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in Clinical Mental Health and a Reiki II Practitioner. I have had the privilege to work with diverse populations, individuals of all ages, and families from all walks of life. I am passionate about helping adults shift their reality and take control of their lives by finding alternative thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Together, we can identify dynamics, themes, patterns, and beliefs that are no longer serving you. I utilize a holistic approach and enjoy teaching individuals about meditative practices such as Reiki, mindfulness, and creative expression to help balance the mind, body, and spirit. I’m here to support you set intentions, make dynamic changes, reach your goals, reclaim your power, and expand your consciousness. I know that beginning therapy and healing work can be scary. I get that. I’ll be here to help support you throughout your journey and we can take things at your pace. I strive to create a safe and comfortable environment for those I have the opportunity to work with.

Hello! I'm Jim, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed in both Florida and Connecticut. I'd like to support you in building the life you imagine! Life can be happy, joyous, and fulfilling. However, life can also be challenging at times. Challenges may involve external situations which we're currently facing, they may be internal struggles involving our feelings and thoughts, or both. During these challenging times, it is often beneficial to work with an empathetic, supportive, and knowledgeable therapist who will assist you in taking the steps necessary to deal with such challenges effectively and move forward with your life. I have 14 years of experience as a therapist working with adolescents, adults, and seniors dealing with a variety of issues. I have worked as a therapist in a nonprofit outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment agency, treating clients with depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders. As a primary therapist in an inpatient substance abuse treatment facility, I have supported clients as they begin their journeys of sobriety and recovery. I have also assisted patients and family members facing end-of-life issues as a home hospice social worker.
