About me

I am a mental health counselor, with a degree in counseling psychology, licensed in the State of Connecticut; with over 10 years of experience working in my private practice and in group homes. My counseling experience has allowed me the opportunity to provide counseling for individuals, children, families, and couples; with a wide range of concerns including various types of anxiety, depression, anger, grief and loss, family problems, parenting problems, relationship problems, and attachment difficulties. I also have over twenty-five years of training and experience working as a family counselor in the judicial system; providing services for domestic violence, divorce, and child custody. In addition, I have also helped many people who have experienced various types of trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, solution-focused therapy and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

My passion is counseling, and it is always a great sense of accomplishment when a client expresses improvement in their emotional well-being or situation, and it is my hope that you will experience improvement during your counseling journey, as well. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written on Jul 29, 2022 after therapy with Rhonda for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I have found Rhonda to be very caring. She is a great listener and offers practical strategies that work. She is supporting me through some life challenges and past traumas that are delicate to say the least but I walk away from each session hopeful and less stressed.

Rhonda has been really helpful in my time of need. I have a very tough family situation I’m going through and her background has been a big contributor to my resilience. I will continue using her as my BetterHelp therapist and feel thankful for her in my journey.

Written on Nov 22, 2021 after therapy with Rhonda for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I was scared to start therapy, because I thought I would be judged or told that my worries are not a big deal. But Rhonda helps take the time to listen and validate my feelings, while also giving me guidance on how to proceed forward.
