Welcome to Connecticut Valley Counseling LLC.
Through the collaborative process of psychotherapy, participants will be provided the opportunity to reflect on personal experiences, at a pace of their choosing, in a non-judgemental and validating environment. During therapy, participants will have ongoing support with developing skills and techniques that enhance their ability to cope with trauma, stress, addiction and/or a variety of mental health symptoms which may be negatively impacting their lives. Ideally, becoming more self aware, leads to a greater sense of empowerment, confidence and ability to identify and utilize internal strengths, distinctive to the individual.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have experience with delivering a variety of therapeutic interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Strengths Perspective, while being mindful of the Biopsychosocial approach. My most extensive training has been with Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, completing the intensive in 2016. However, each person's experiences and needs are unique, therefore I feel it is most effective to draw from a variety of strategies and techniques that are most clinically indicated, given the context and needs of the individual. Lastly, I consider myself a strong client advocate and will be committed to supporting you with your self identified goals for greater life satisfaction and fulfillment.
