CT Psych Now
Counseling Services in Cromwell & Bristol, Connecticut
At CT Psych Now, we strive to provide high quality Counseling, that's easy to access, when you need it most.
CT Psych Now started because I wanted to help people. I wanted to help people in the moments they need it most. I wanted to be there for them when they had a bad day, when they felt sad, and when they were overwhelmed. So I started CT Psych Now to do just that- to help people when they truly need it. To provide Counseling within hours of their difficult time.
But, that wasn't it. I wanted to create a place where people could come and, with ease, be connected to a trusted Counselor. I wanted to make it simple and easy to access. I quickly found out, that my clients and other Counselors agreed. So it's a win-win. We feel privileged to help you when it really matters.
