“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.“

I am Michael Connors. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education, Masters Degree in Counseling and Clinical Psychology from Westfield University, Westfield, Massachusetts.

My experience in working with the LGBT community is extensive, I have done individual and couples counseling. I facilitated and developed a LGBT support group in Berkshire County.  As a founding member and president of the Berkshire Stonewall Community Coalition,  I helped to provide support, counseling and social activities for LGBT individuals in Berkshire County. I’ve lead a support group and did individual counseling for individuals living with HIV/AIDS.

As a tenured Special Education Teacher/Supervisor in the Pittsfield Public School system for many years, I provided family support for parents/caregivers of special needs and autistic children. Working with parents, I provided guidance to help them deal with the needs of their children, as well as, helping them to develop strategies that would assist with behavior and maximize their child’s potential.
