Dr. Bob Connolly

CEO & Lead Psychologist

I got into this field because I wanted to help people. I’ve been a medical social worker, psychiatric hospital administrator, and, for the last 14 years, a private practice psychologist.

Too many people in the United States are misdiagnosed. These “labels” are like terrible, unwelcomed companions, following individuals throughout their mental health care. Misdiagnoses lead to poorly conceived treatment options and THAT leads to clients not improving.

…And we wonder why people don’t get better….

I was fed up with it all, so I decided to do something about it. I developed my diagnostic expertise, started to create more dynamic and unique treatment plans, and I made the conscious effort to break from tradition, step outside the box, and design plans that were more interesting, positive, helpful, and, dare I say, fun.

It was time to break with tradition and start to help people in a more positive way – helping them understand their strengths and not just what was wrong with them – and I’ve never looked back. The positive impact on my clients defied expectation. I was able to help them make and maintain real, lasting changes.

There are many creative solutions for anyone, if we listen carefully and color outside the lines. You don’t have to have an advanced degree to have good ideas, and the best solutions come from collaborative, connected inspiration. This is how I work best with people. This is how I want to work with you.

I love the work I do. I get to use my entire skillset to help people get better, help people move beyond a life of disappointment after disappointment, and create a life filled with joy. I love working with autism and individuals on the spectrum; so many of them are ready for something new, despite clinging to routines and rituals that pass time to get through another disappointing day.

Nothing happens without actually caring about the people you want to help – and I want something great to happen for you. I want to be the guy that helps your loved one live beyond their so-called limitations, and break out of the box. We can do this!
