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.

I have a fairly diverse background in work and education including 20 years in the business arena in retail and financial services. In 2000 I went back to grad school again and moved into higher education teaching and the mental health field. I have worked specifically in substance use disorder in both residential and out patient facilities and I am knowledgable about most substances both licit and illicit that often get abused. My MA in psychology was focused on Binge Eating Disorder which I struggled with in childhood and began self-medicating with cannabis by the time I was 14 years old. I found pills in my late teens and crystal meth in my early 20's which brought me to my knees by my mid 20's. I met my first psychotherapist at 25 and she turned my life around, that was when I made up my mind what my life goal would be.

Life is STRESSFUL !! Are you feeling overwhelmed, alone, and unable to meet all the demands of life? Everyone feels this way at times. But you are not alone and help, care and compassion are only a phone call away. I enjoy assisting people who are dealing with one or more of the stresses life can bring including anxiety, depression, and relationship and parenting issues. I work best with issues of stress and family dysfunction, relationship issues, self-defeating behavior patterns, and parenting issues with teens/oppositional children. Ideally, clients I work with are willing to express their feelings, and explore their situations in a safe, accepting environment to achieve the peace of mind they seek. My specialty is my ability to understand and get to the heart of my client's concerns. I assist clients in sorting through their pain and confusion. Then I present a selection of strategies and pathways to resolve or manage their difficulties. Clients choose the approach that best suits them. I approach therapy as a cooperative partnership in which I work with individuals, couples, and families to reduce pain/stress and increase peace of mind, harmony, and level of functioning.

I have experience providing individual and group treatment for patients and families. I strive to provide a safe space for self-exploration and I have solid diagnostic and assessment skills. This allows for a keen understanding of the person and the modality that will allow the client to meet their clinical goals. I believes that a core underpinning of treatment is respecting each individual's uniqueness and working collaboratively to build resilience and discover individual strengths. I have long been an advocate for the underserved and marginalized in our society and have worked to decrease the stigma associated with mental health treatment.

My Name is Leslie. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Nationally Certified Counselor in the state of Connecticut. I have worked in various clinical settings including but not limited to in-home, community, private practice and outpatient settings. As a Counselor, I have several years of experience providing counseling services to individuals with varying ages and diagnoses. Currently, I mainly specialize in Trauma processing, Racial Identity issues, Anxiety, Stress Management, Low self-esteem, and Relationship concerns. I would describe my practice as one that is built upon the belief that people begin to heal at the moment, they feel heard. I would be remised if I did not mention that my personal history has cemented this belief and led me on my own journey toward healing. Which has placed me in this position to help others on their journey. I believe my ability to connect with clients is universal.

Hello, my name is Randolph, and my goal is to help you achieve success, however you define it. My goal is to help you achieve your goals. In the past, I have been confused and tried to do all the things that everyone else told me to do, but it just did not feel right to me. I changed my major in college 3 times, took time off after undergrad trying to figure out my next steps, and found myself in situations in which I had to bet on myself because everyone told me that I should pick door number 1 while I knew I needed to take door number 2. I am glad I picked door number 2. As a psychologist, I help people find their full authentic selves, especially amid unfriendly, unaffirming spaces. We will figure out what has led to your frustration, anxiety, and burnout, and how we can turn things around. Together, we will craft a clear vision of what you want your future to be and the steps to become your best possible self.
