Charles Colclough, LCSW-R
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 20 years of experience in Mental Health. I have experience working with children, adolescence, as well as with adults. I have extensive experience working with patients with substance use disorders, Major Depression, Anxiety Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
I initially became involved in Mental Health because I have a passion for helping others recognize their true potential to be the best that they can be. I believe that we all have innate qualities to heal, grow emotionally, and overcome adversity.
I have a strong commitment to helping others, and I believe that the human spirit is a powerful force that lives within us all. I believe that therapy is a journey that can lead to success and fulfilment in one’s life. Come join me in this journey, together we can take the steps needed to achieve emotional fulfilment and happiness.
David Haviland, LCSW-R
I’m a Licensed Psychotherapist, and bring a host of proven therapeutic skills and capabilities to The Bridges Counseling Group. I graduated from U.C. Berkeley, with an MSW degree from SUNY Albany, and began my career as a therapist in the inpatient psychiatric unit at St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie. Later, I served as a Senior Psychotherapist at Phelps Memorial Hospital’s outpatient mental health program. About ten years ago I began seeing patients privately as well, providing counseling to those struggling with a broad range of psychiatric issues including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, family issues and substance abuse. I’ve also developed a psycho educational program in anger management which helped me establish myself as an effective teacher and counselor as well as a proven Psychotherapist. At Bridges, I plan to effectively continue, one-on-one psychotherapy work bringing compassion, insight and intuitive skill to all in search of relief from the mental health challenges they face. My hope as a Psychotherapist, is that each patient I see can leave my office with a spring in their step, knowing that they are finally on the path to a happier, more satisfying life.
Marilyn Rosenberg, LCSW-R
For over 25 years, as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have worked with individuals, couples and adolescents. I have a family systems approach in seeing each person as a part of a whole dynamic unit. Learning to communicate effectively enables couples to reduce marital problems. Most often people seek treatment during a crisis or painful life experience. In a supportive environment, new coping strategies can address the old self-defeating patterns that often have resulted in anxiety, depression and poor self-esteem. I am certified in hypnotherapy and EMDR. I have been trained in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and am a Certified Integrated Kabalistic Healer, which also enables me to work within a spiritual context. I have had much success in creating an open environment where my clients feel free to express themselves and know that they will be understood. In that environment they can access their own inner wisdom and together we can find solutions that will enhance their lives.
