Michael Kolpinski

LPC

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Connecticut with 16 years of clinical work experience. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

I can assist clients who experience depressive/ mood disorders, anxiety/panic disorders, personality disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, trauma, issues of adjustment, addictions, and social stressors.

I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Therapy which address the impact of our thoughts on our feelings and behaviors. I will work with you to address and alter the irrational thoughts and beliefs that increase symptom severity and that accompany negative feelings and behaviors. I also utilize humor, when appropriate, to help strengthen the therapeutic bonds with my clients. Each client is unique and I am able to customize my therapeutic approach to your specific needs.

Mike is a fantastic therapist for what I needed, to get out of my emotional shell. A lot of personal problems with mental state and relationship. Mike helped me navigate struggles in my own mind and provided tools to succeed in areas of my life I wanted to focus therapy on. Definitely recommend for an easy going therapist.

I had a very rewarding experience with Michael as my therapist. This was the first time I was seeking therapy, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Michael was very easy to talk to, knowledgeable, encouraging, but not afraid to challenge me in an absolute supportive light to help me navigate through my struggles in my personal and interpersonal journey.

Work with me!
