Craig Thomas Quinlan
Craig is a master’s level intern therapist studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Duquesne University. Coming to this profession later in life as a second career, he brings with him extensive experience collaborating with individuals and groups, and approaches his work with passion, thoughtfulness, and care. He aims to develop a strong trusting relationship with clients and to create a safe, accepting space so they feel secure in telling their story and expressing their thoughts, feelings, and reactions. Craig feels it’s important to work alongside clients to explore patterns and overcome blocks to progress so they can realize their fullest potential, help them to develop positive and fulfilling relationships with others, and provide them with tools and support that foster well-being and create meaningful change in their lives. No two people are the same and no single approach will work for everyone—he feels an integrative therapeutic approach that’s tailored to the individual needs of clients in their unique context is essential.
In his free time, Craig enjoys being outside, composing music, cooking, photography, exercising, and spending time with his wife, his children, and his rambunctious dog, Charlie.
