The county of New Haven is proud of its small towns and this includes Naugatuck, which became a city in 1844 as a small farming community. Today, the town is a bustling metropolis but still feels like a small town even with a population of more than 30 thousand. In fact, they were even featured on the Travel Channel for being a quaint and adorable borough. 

Sometimes, you may feel like you are alone even if you are living in a small city with over 30 thousand people and you don’t know where to turn for help. But, here in Naugatuck, there are many caring and experienced counselors who are available to help you manage whatever is going on.

7 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello and welcome! My name is Jeff Gagliardi, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in the areas of anxiety, depression, chronic illness and life coaching. I also have significant experience working with clients dealing with behavioral addiction such as gambling and technology use. I leverage my background in finance to counsel clients about financial issues, which often can negatively impact peoples' mental health. I have my Master's of Social Work and Doctorate of Social Work degrees from Southern Connecticut State University. I have been a clinician for six years after leaving a career in finance, and I’m incredibly grateful that I have the opportunity to help people overcome challenges in their lives. I recently began focusing on my private practice work full-time after leaving an intensive outpatient treatment facility where I worked with clients with a broad range of mental health diagnoses. My therapeutic approach involves using positive psychology, which focuses on developing a person’s strengths to allow them to create a greater sense of well-being. My goal is not just to help people survive life, but to help them thrive. Building a healthy counseling relationship is critical for the therapeutic process to be successful. I recognize that finding a counselor is an incredibly important and personal decision. If for any reason an individual does not connect with my approach, I will assist them with finding a therapist that is a better fit for them. I do everything I can to connect with people I work with and help them to feel comfortable and safe. I regularly ask for feedback on how clients feel counseling is progressing so I can make any adjustments that are necessary to improve the process. In our work together, we will determine the goals you are looking to achieve in therapy and establish a plan to achieve them. Every client is unique, and I tailor counseling interventions to each specific person. Most importantly, I will learn about you and support you while we go through this transformative process together. I am continually seeking out new approaches that can help people develop healthier coping strategies and habits, and I then relay these ideas to my clients. I applaud you for taking this step to improve your life and I hope that I can be a person to help guide you on your journey.

Greetings ! I have been a licensed clinical social worker in CT for 25 years. I find that the people that arrive for help are courageous and determined even in their uncertainty and despair.

I have always felt privileged to take part in my clients journey toward better health and wellness.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years experience in individual and family therapy, specializing in treating adults, children and adolescents. My style is a collaborative and dynamic Strengths Based approach incorporating elements of Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused and Systemic (Family) therapies. We all need guidance and support throughout life, now more than ever. I view therapy as a collaborative process in which my client's allow me to assist them on their journey towards change. How we think directly impacts how we feel and therefore how we act, the decisions we make and the way we approach our lives on a daily basis. There are many elements in our life experience that shape how we think and feel. When we understand the how and why of our thinking, we can then start reshaping our thoughts and changing how we feel.

13 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Welcome, and thank you for viewing my profile! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both California and Nevada with 13 years of experience helping people overcome the effects of trauma, overcome anxiety and chronic stress, and how to assimilate the challenges brought on by grief and life transitions. I hold a Master of Arts in Psychology (2011) from Brandman University, and Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with a Minor in Music from California State University, Sacramento (2004). The majority of my clinical experience has been working with trauma survivors, including survivors of violent crime, domestic violence and child abuse. I have worked as a therapist in private practice, government agencies, and community non-profit clinics. I have also worked in the social service fields as an Employment Services Social Worker, a Child Protective Services Social Worker, and a Foster Family Agency Social Worker. All of these experiences have shaped my approach to working with individuals of diverse life circumstances, and those experiences have given me a profound respect for the challenges that humans face on a daily basis while also providing inspiration as to the resilience of the human spirit. When working with my clients, I use imagery, metaphor, and humor to help them understand and internalize concepts that help them regain control over their lives. Clients often say they appreciate my ability to be "real" with them while also being sensitive, empathetic, and professional. I feel it is important to create a safe space for my clients to openly and honestly share their experiences, no matter the topic, and I encourage any and all questions you might have. I also understand that my clients are relying on me for equally open and honest feedback, and I provide that in a gentle yet meaningful and actionable way. I also believe it is essential that my clients have a clear understanding of how our process works, and to that end and as much as humanly possible, I make sure they always know what to expect from our professional relationship. I very much enjoy working with highly-motivated individuals looking to take charge of their future while healing their past. Let's make a plan about how we can get you from where you are to where you want to be! I look forward to meeting you soon! Warmly, Jen

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Naugatuck?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Naugatuck therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Naugatuck therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Naugatuck therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Naugatuck therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in CT, therapists may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Naugatuck counselor?

Before seeing your Naugatuck therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Naugatuck.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Naugatuck licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Naugatuck counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Naugatuck, Connecticut can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
