You are the expert on your experience, and the hero of your own story
We are rooting for you to put us out of a job
You can always come back if you feel you need to

These are our guiding principles, as a practice.  We believe that we have a responsibility to make you feel those three things over the course of your time working with us.  We believe that a person should feel as though they are getting “their money’s worth” from therapy, recognizing the substantial investment of money, time, and energy that our clients put in.  That means that we work hard to be worthy of keeping you with us for as long as you need therapy, and not a moment longer.  It might not be the best business model, but ultimately, we want to help you achieve your goals as quickly, efficiently, and safely as possible, so that you can spend your time, money, and energy exactly how you want, rather than with us in therapy.

Our practice is heavily influenced by the Core Values of the Social Work profession, which are: Service, Social Justice, Dignity and Worth of the Person, Importance of Human Relationships, Integrity, and Competence.  We believe that we are here to offer to serve our clients, to the best of our ability, within the appropriate scope and application of our professional responsibilities.  We believe that we have a responsibility to ensure access to needed services and resources, especially to the vulnerable and the oppressed.  We believe in the dignity and worth of each person, and we seek to enhance our clients’ capacity and opportunity to change and to address their own needs.  We believe that our clients are essential partners in the healing process, in the families, social groups, organizations, and communities.  We believe we have a responsibility to act honestly, responsibly, and ethically, especially towards our clients.  And we believe that we should always continue to aspire to learn more, to grow, and to improve, so that we can continue to offer more and better resources to our clients.

Both of our providers are trained in EMDR, and the theories of that modality greatly influence all of our work.  While the majority of the work that we do includes EMDR, we are also both trained in traditional talk-therapy.  No matter what modality we and our client might decide to use together, we are guided by the idea that our role is to offer to support you as you make the desired changes in your thoughts, feelings, behavior, and life in general, so that you can live and feel the way you would like.  We are a cookbook full of recipes, and, in the end, you are the one doing the baking.  We are a hardware store full of tools, and, in the end, you take the tools with you when you leave the store.

Our providers have experience working with individuals as they live with the following diagnoses and experiences: Depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Acute Stress Disorder, PTSD, Complex PTSD, Trauma as it presents with Neurodivergence (including Autism), dissociative disorders, anger management difficulties, sleep disturbances, low self-esteem, phobias, sex acts addiction, performance anxiety, aftermath of bullying, compulsive disorders, and more.

At this time, the only insurance that our practice takes is HUSKY-D (Connecticut Medicaid), with very limited ability to consider HUSKY A and B on a case-by-case basis.  Otherwise, we bill our clients out-of-pocket at the time of service.  We do offer services on a sliding scale on a case-by-case basis.  Please see our “Services” pages for specific out-of-pocket pricing for therapy, LCSW supervision, and EMDR consultation.
