We opened a private mental health practice in New Milford because we love our community. When you reach out for help with a challenge you’re facing it is our job to assist you in a timely way.We are always here to answer your questions and support you in your decision to seek counseling. I help people struggling with communication in their relationships renew their communication style to establish healthy boundaries and increased positive communication. I support my clients in feeling more comfortable expressing their feelings, gaining confidence, and learning new communication skills and behaviors so they can have healthier and more rewarding relationships with co-parent,spouse, family, co-workers and friends.
I have an undergraduate degree in social work and psychology from Western Connecticut State University and a Master’s in Social Work with a specialty in children and families from Fordham Graduate School of Social Service in New York.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time hiking and being a part of nature, which offers me an opportunity to appreciate what our world has to offer. I am fortunate to be the father of five children and enjoy being around them with my best friend and partner Rebecca at NMCC and in life.
On a final note, your journey to self-discovery and transformation from a renewed commitment to self-care creates a positive energy that is tremendously rewarding. Establishing a trusting relationship with a professional that focuses on your unique goals is essential to your success in therapy. Sometimes, providing you with information about resources in the community can help you accomplish your goals. Other times, you may need to do more in-depth counseling to get to that place.
