Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Please call or email me for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today

Shockingly poor experience. My child & I showed up for second appointment on time, Karashik texted my child while we were in waiting room to cancel. Tried to contact him for 2 weeks with no return response. We dropped by his waiting room and he didn't acknowledge us sitting there!
Very odd behavior for a professional.  Should not be treating children.

karaquack.  A joke, no interest in helping patients only in lineing his pockets.  He is a thief a liar and a poor clinician.  He moves all the time, wonder what he is running from.  I read his student reviews from western ct college and they loved him because he almost never showed up to class no attendance, no paper and easy tests. thats beacuase he did not want to work.  he is the same way with patients. Trust and follow your instincts see somebody else he will make you worse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

* this reviewer has be with this therapist for <6 months
