Clinicians & Consultants

Looking for a therapist in your area who is trained in Choice Theory and Reality Therapy?

Perhaps you are looking for a consultant who deals with clinical issues, education or management?

This page contains names and information about clinicians and consultants in the Northeast Region. The information is provided by the individual. The Northeast Region of WGI-US does not verify or endorse people listed here. This listing only provides information. It is up to you to determine whether the service they offer is what you want or not. When interviewing a therapist, there are always a few questions you should ask:

  • What is your education, experience and field of expertise?

  • Are you licensed to practice in our state?

  • Are you currently, or have you ever been under investigation for unethical practice anywhere?

  • Do you carry professional liability or malpractice insurance?

If you are a clinician and/or consultant trained in CT/RT and use Dr. Glasser’s ideas in you work, you are welcome to submit basic information and have it posted here. The only requirement for posting is that you are a current, dues paying member of the Northeast Region and have completed the Certification Process in Reality Therapy & Choice Theory. This is a free service of the Northeast Region. Send information to Craig Schollenberger for posting.
