What you should know about me...

I am Kurt Fuchs and I have been working in the mental health field since 1985.  I earned a Masters in Social Work (MSW) from Southern Connecticut State University in 1993. I was licensed in 1995 by the State of Connecticut to practice clinical social work (CT license number 003828). My license (as well as any professional who claims to be licensed) can be verified at https://www.elicense.ct.gov/.

I have worked with children, adolescents and adults in a variety of settings including community mental health centers, a psychiatric hospital, a youth service bureau, and the Department of Children and Families (DCF).

I have worked with people who have had many types of issues that have included (among others) depression, trauma, anger, schizophrenia, anxiety, interpersonal communication, and child welfare.

I have had extensive training in different approaches to therapy including:

  • Solution Focused Brief Treatment (SFBT)
  • Structural and Strategic Family Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Trauma Treatment
  • Systems Theory and the Ecological Perspective - the foundation of all social work education
