John P Corwin, Psychiatrist  in Madison
“We want to be the best person we can be yet we have all experienced how our way of doing things can work against us. Behaviors we learned early become automatic. We do not notice how expecting failure brings failure, how expecting rejection brings rejection, how avoidance of sadness brings sadness, or how avoidance of anger brings more anger. Even when we see these connections, that is not enough to change them. It often is not until these patterns are experienced within the safety of a therapy relationship and one uses that place to practice new ways of relating that these patterns can be changed.

Jeannie V Pasacreta, Psychiatric Nurse  in Newtown
“My expertise and passion relates to the expanding need for quality, compassionate services aimed at managing the physical & emotional consequences of chronic stress especially as it relates to family violence & chronic medical illness. I am motivated by an observation of enhanced psychiatric vulnerability related to proliferating stress & diminishing support that increasingly characterize modern life. While life expectancy & responsibilities proliferate, globalization limits support and increases stress. Paradoxically, quality mental health services are diminishing while demand increases exponentially. Services aimed at rising depression rates & maladaptive behaviors linked to our national obesity crisis are 2 areas where urgent need and my expertise coincide.
