I believe that everyone has the tools they need to implement the changes they want. As a therapist, it is my job to help you access these tools through, providing new broader perspectives and understanding how contexts and perspectives may be limiting you. I practice under the theory that relationships work in systemic ways, meaning when one aspect of a relationship is not functioning as it should another aspect will suffer. Through collaborative discussion I will challenge you to broaden your perspective in relationships, allowing you to access your internal tools to implement the necessary changes. Sometimes life is just funny, during our sessions we will laugh, cry and we may even disagree all in an effort to reach our goals and or elevate symptoms. If you are willing to do the work together we can help you create change.

Hi, I'm Trish Do you ever feel like you are your own worst enemy? Or perhaps that you will never have the life you want and have dreamed of living? Reaching out for therapy takes both courage and humility, and I am honored to join you on your journey. We all have blind spots and often fail to give ourselves credit for the strengths and qualities that our uniquely ours. As a therapist, I will promise to help bring out your best, so that you can make the changes needed to welcome joy into your life. I bring a ton of life experience to my practice, having faced the challenges of establishing careers- yes, more than one- raising a family of four children and maintaining a very, very, very long marriage. I have lived in eight states and six countries, and count several different nationalities among my family members. My early career was in the business world, including a Fortune 10 company as a human resources manager and recruiter. I transitioned into non-profit leadership and have sat on several boards of directors. I gain a sense of meaning by accompanying you on your life journey, especially during challenging times. My greatest satisfaction is to help you to remove the obstacles that are keeping you from the joy of living and loving.

Hello, my name is Kelley Machado, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Connecticut. You may wonder what does Licensed Clinical Social Worker mean, what does that allow me to do? As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I have the unique opportunity to help people work through various points in their lives. In the years I have been a social worker I have worked with various populations of people from many socioeconomic, cultural, and racial backgrounds as well as people with various presenting concerns. I began my career working in the mental health system, then the criminal justice system, then onto medical social work including various medical issues as well as aging and end of life concerns. I believe people can experience difficulties with coping whenever faced with a transition in life. These changes can include monumental transitions that are both good or bad, like a new job, new family members, loss, separations, disappointments, traumatic events, etc. These types of experiences can cause psychosocial distress which can have far-reaching impacts on many aspects of our lives. I work with my clients who include children, adults, couples, and families to find healthy coping methods in order to gain a healthier perception of themselves which can help to strengthen their relationships with themselves and others so they can find themselves as comfortable, secure, and whole. I take time to get to know each of my clients on an individual basis so that I can tailor approaches to care because I have learned that not one approach impacts and helps all clients. I have been trained and adopted many approaches to provide therapeutic support including cognitive-behavioral, attachment theory, developmental theory, trauma theory, and dialectical behavioral theory. Change is not easy and embarking on change takes a tremendous amount of courage and actions. I congratulate you on your wish, strength, and wisdom for seeking help and taking this first step towards making a change in your life. If you are prepared to move beyond wishes and intentions to action and fulfillment- I am here to empower and support you to achieve your goals. I would love to help you reach your goals, whatever that may be in life so you can move forward

Hi there! I want to take a moment to commend you for taking this courageous first step in the healing process by beginning your search for a therapist. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who works with children, adolescents and adults. I teach my clients various ways to manage distressing psychological symptoms and to provide them with a non-judgemental space for them to explore anything - past, present or future. I use a person-centered approach to determine which modality of treatment will be the most effective in assisting my clients in achieving their goals. I teach Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients learn to tolerate distress, regulate emotions, create an awareness of how our thoughts can influence our behaviors and lastly, restructure distorted thinking patterns that cause anxiety and depression. I use the psychodynamic/psychoanalytic approaches to help clients to identify repressed memories from the past and look at how they have been unconsciously influencing their thoughts and behaviors to this day. I am also skilled in Crisis Intervention, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Group Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Applied Behavioral Analysis, Attachment-Based Therapy and Trauma-Focused CBT. I like to make sure that we find time to laugh in therapy and celebrate every victory, no matter how small. When it comes time to tackle the hard stuff, just know that I will be there with you every step of the way. You deserve to feel seen, heard and supported by your therapist. The best predictor of a successful outcome in therapy is the relationship that one has with their therapist and so I invite you to schedule an appointment with me.

I specialize in treating substance use disorders by helping clients understand the purpose substance use serves in their lives and teaching strategies that can help regain connection and self-acceptance. I also treat the co-occurring disorders that often accompany substance abuse, such as anxiety, depression, and trauma. I primarily use the tools of curiosity, compassion, and mindfulness to help empower clients in therapy. My hope is that clients gain insight into the function of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and help reframe the negative patterns of judgement that may arise. Together we can investigate and be curious about where particular thoughts of guilt, wrongdoing, blame, or self-accusation began, why they developed, and what purpose they served. The part of you that loves you the most is making you aware that something in your life needs attention. With thoughtful support and guidance, you can find your path in recovery and thrive in life.

I believe in the moving through stressful & traumatic experiences into one's life with new purpose. Telehealth Tips If you're used to seeing your mental health professional in their office, it may take some time to adjust to this new process. Take heart that our patients typically find video conferencing beneficial. Make a list of the main symptoms you want to address in the conversation. Also be sure to indicate when your symptoms started, what tends to exacerbate them, and what, if anything, seems to soothe them. Write down questions. Remember that mental health appointments are a two-way street. This is your chance to ask questions you have about your symptoms, brain scan, diagnosis, and treatment. Having a list of questions ready can help you remember to ask them. Have your medical and psychiatric history handy. Your therapist may ask questions about past medical or psychological issues in addition to inquiring about names and dosages of medications you have taken. Having this information available can save precious minutes during your appointment so you can spend more time talking about how you are going to get healthy. Minimize distractions and choose a quiet, comfortable spot One of the best strategies to ensure a meaningful appointment is to eliminate distractions. Close your door, turn off the notifications on your phone, and make sure someone is watching the kids so you can focus. Being able to hear clearly is another important element of an effective mental Tele-Health Zoom appointment. Try to minimize any background noise, such as the TV, the washing machine, or a barking dog. In addition, it's important that you feel comfortable in your setting during your appointment. Find a spot where you are relaxed and at ease. Troubleshoot technology beforehand. Find out what technology will be used and make sure you know how to use it prior to your appointment. Are you signed up for Zoom, Skype, or another video conferencing app? Do you know how it works? If you have never used the app before, do a practice call with a friend beforehand so you can work out the kinks. Set a reminder to keep appointment. Most of us can benefit from helpful reminders and alerts from our digital calendars. Setting your calendar to send you an alert 5-10 minutes prior to your virtual session can give you the time to gather your lists and questions and to prepare yourself mentally. Reminders can be especially critical if you have a tendency to be forgetful or inattentive. Unblock your phone. If you're doing a phone call, make sure your phone isn't set to block unknown callers and answer your phone at the designated time even if it shows that it's from an unknown caller. DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT Take notes and/or ask for a recap. I specialize in integrative psychotherapy with individuals, families, couples, & teens of diverse backgrounds such as , gender preferences and addiction prevention/recovery support. I treat grief and trauma recovery using a therapeutic Mindful practice & therapeutic yoga adding up to a wholistic counseling approach.

Your Amen Clinics specialist may ask questions about past medical or psychological issues in addition to inquiring about names and dosages of medications you have taken. Having this information available can save precious minutes during your appointment so you can spend more time talking about how you are going to get healthy. Minimize distractions and choose a quiet, comfortable spot One of the best strategies to ensure a meaningful appointment is to eliminate distractions. Close your door, turn off the notifications on your phone, and make sure someone is watching the kids so you can focus. Being able to hear clearly is another important element of an effective mental telehealth appointment. Try to minimize any background noise, such as the TV, the washing machine, or a barking dog. In addition, it's important that you feel comfortable in your setting during your appointment. Find a spot where you are relaxed and at ease. Troubleshoot technology beforehand. Find out what technology will be used and make sure you know how to use it prior to your appointment. Are you signed up for Zoom, Skype, or another video conferencing app? Do you know how it works? Ifyou have never used the app before, do a practice call with a friend beforehand so you can work out the kinks. Set an alert. Most of us can benefit from helpful reminders and alerts from our digital calendars. Setting your calendar to send you an alert 5-10 minutes prior to your virtual session can give you the time to gather your lists and questions and to prepare yourself mentally. Reminders can be especially critical if you have a tendency to be forgetful or inattentive. Unblock your phone. If you're doing a phone call, make sure your phone isn't set to block unknown callers and answer your phone at the designated time even if it shows that it's from an unknown caller. DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT Take notes and/or ask for a recap. CBT DBT Feminist theory Transactional Analysis Diversity of gender & LGBT+Q persons Addiction relapse prevention & recovery treatment See Individuals, Couples, Families & Teens Video sessions are available.

Equanimity means becoming the calm inside a storm. It also means realizing that you cannot change anything or anyone but yourself, only your reaction to them. The acceptance of this concept has brought great peace to my life, and I hope to share it with you. It is not easy to accept that you may need some coaching to get your life moving in a more positive direction again. Life does not have to be a struggle! Through a combination of evidenced-based, solution-focused and mindfulness-based approaches you will develop skills to manage your thoughts, emotions and behaviors related to life's events versus life managing you. Let's work together to optimize your potential, feel confident about yourself and experience joy.

Hi there! My name is Jaron Cotton and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 5 years of experience in the field of mental health. While life is a blessing for us all, it can bring incredible challenges filled with stress that can seem impossible at times. My goal in therapy is understand your goals and work together to help you achieve them. True growth comes from challenging ourselves to process, reflect and adapt in a healthy way. Remember that asking for help and showing vulnerability is actually a sign of strength, never a weakness! I am available through telehealth only at this time, but may be accepting in-person clients in the future. Thank you!

Hello, my name is Robin, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years. The reason I began working in this field remains the same reason why I continue 20 years later; I want to help support people through life. We all have difficult times when we may feel lost, alone, anxious, and/or filled with emotion. I will provide you with a safe place, without judgement, to work through your difficult time. I utilize CBT to look at how our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions are interlinked. By looking at all of these facets, my goal is to find the best tools to promote change and start on the road to healing. During my sessions I encourage feedback, questions, and your assessment of the process. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions that you may have.
