Adam is a therapist in Waterbury, CT who genuinely appreciates others and makes a real connection with just about anyone. He helps his clients navigate their unique struggles, grow through their challenges, and actualize their true potential. Clients and fellow clinicians describe him as real (read: not “therapist’ish”), calming, validating, non-judgmental, optimistic, compassionate, intuitive, and able to identify and bring out people’s strengths. Clients who have been in therapy for years prior to meeting Adam have said about him that it’s the first time they’ve felt seen and heard.
Adam works with couples, adults, adolescents, and groups–clients suffering from acute and complex trauma, abuse and neglect, anxiety, depression, and many other issues, all with a focus on fostering the capacity for loving relationships – with self and others. Adam has a special interest in fitness and nutrition’s role in thriving emotionally and spiritually.
Adam has a creative background (music, film, improv), and brings gentle humor into his sessions to help clients see the light within the darkness, and energize them to move forward. Adam has decades’ experience in a variety of settings, including the IOP/PHP at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, local pre and post-marital group workshops, and workshops and retreats through Yale University focusing on developing healthy relationship skills and character refinement.
While Adam brings in techniques from various modalities (DBT, EFT, person-centered, somatic, and psychodynamic psychotherapy), he believes that the therapeutic relationship itself is the vehicle that helps each client thrive and then spread that to all areas of their life.
