Robert Caffrey, LPC, JD

920 Farmington Ave, Ste 202, West Hartford
What is your specialization and why did you choose to work in this area?
I specialize in working with men who want to be more effective in their personal and professional relationships. I spent years as a lawyer, business owner and soldier, but became a counselor because my own counseling greatly improved the quality of my life.
What do you find most gets in the way of an individual's follow-through and success with change or healing therapy?
Our nervous systems are literally wired to resist the new and unknown, and that pretty much defines “change.” The greatest challenge is remembering that change is a process, so there will be good days and bad.
How do you support your client's goal to keep their personal intention and create lasting change?
To help my clients create and sustain change, we focus on identifying exactly what needs to change, setting small but clear steps that let us know we’re on the right track, and being patient. Like a marathon, lasting change requires stamina as opposed to speed.
Research shows that individuals keep their personal goals when they have a support system in place. What do you offer to provide the care and support necessary for an individual to experience change?
I’ve been through the change process myself, so I know it’s difficult. I bring knowledge, skill, empathy, objectivity, patience, and most of all, respect for the courage it takes to embark on this journey.
Many individuals reading this may feel overwhelmed and not know where to begin in setting a personal goal. What is your best advice to bring self-compassion and patience?
My advice is to recognize how much courage you’re showing just by considering making a life change. Take small but constant steps. You’ll get there in the end!
