about us

Charter Oak Therapeutic Services, LLC has two licensed clinicians with a combined 15 years of experience. Charter Oak clinicians include George Gogas, LCSW and Rosalie Panioto, LMFT. Our previous vocational experiences have included providing outpatient counseling and therapy for community-based agencies, higher level of care group therapy at non-profit local mental health authorities, as well as direct care programs, specifically therapeutic group homes and short-term assessment and respite shelters for adolescents. Currently we offer individual, couples, and family therapy and counseling from our new location in Wolcott, Connecticut. 

Charter Oak is a veteran-owned small business and is a member of the Connecticut chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. Our orientation to providing therapy and counseling  involves helping individuals and family systems develop and nurture their own strengths, insights, natural supports and skills which can support a more balanced and enjoyable life.
