Jeff Chervenak


Jeff focuses his practice on two types of individuals: those (particularly executives) with significant lengths of sobriety, and those who are newly sober or attempting to get sober. Each requires a different approach.

People in early recovery have needs for more of a coaching approach. Jeff Chervenak, MS, LADC, has a Clinical Psychology Master’s degree in Addiction Studies where he developed evidence-based skills geared explicitly for this. As an addiction volunteer with the Connecticut Department of Corrections for over 13 years, Jeff developed a unique approach to helping those who are struggling. Since 2013, Jeff has studied mindfulness-based Gestalt psychotherapy at Hartford Family Institute.

In his work with you or your loved one, you will address behaviors associated with and also well beyond your addiction, and will develop skills and behaviors that move you to a more holistic and healthy place.

Individuals with long-term sobriety have developed rock-solid tools that will be used to go deeper, resulting in greater freedom and personal power. Traditional psychotherapy relies heavily on cognitive approaches, and while there is a place for this, deep-rooted change or transformation rarely results. Ultimately, your work with Jeff goes beyond what you might get with traditional coaching and therapy and will promote fundamental change that is long-lasting and empowering.
