  1. Hi Steve,

    I just came across this blog and am happy to see this effort to increase the visibility of mental health resources for lawyers.

    I am currently a psychotherapist in private practice with a specialty in counseling lawyers, having practiced law for ten years in my “prior life”. I am on the roster on mental health providers to which LCL-CT makes referrals. They’re a relatively new LAP and IMO are doing a great job of reaching out to Connecticut’s lawyers in needs.
