About Connections Counseling, PLLC

Years of Practice Based in NY

Connections Counseling, PLLC has been formed to benefit persons with distress. The training arm of the organization (Connections CEs) also has been formed to benefit clinicians who work in the Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and Mental Health (MH) fields. Our belief is that clinicians benefit from continuing education in Best Practices, and the result of the dissemination of Best Practice coursework is better treatment, better health and better mental health.

“Our primary goal is to relieve distress that occurs when people have mental health or substance abuse problems. A secondary goal is to ensure that clinicians have access to affordable, high quality education in their field”
