At the Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut (CGC), healing is our specialty. Our clinicians work tirelessly to ensure that the children and families we serve develop the tools to address and overcome such challenging issues as depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. While we ensure that our staff are properly trained and equipped with the resources needed to help treat the youth of our community, we believe the atmosphere of our clinic should complement our services. To ensure that our clients’ experience is positive from the moment they enter our doors, we’ve decorated our West Broad waiting room with beautiful artwork from local artists furnished by Caroline Temlock Teichman.

While the artwork is technically housed in the waiting room of our West Broad office, the area has become known as CGC’s in-house gallery. Quarterly, Ms. Temlock Teichman generously donates her time to find artists, like Rosemarie Confunji and Steve Labkoff, to share their work with us.

“The children and families we serve are struggling with some very difficult situations,” explained CGC’s President and CEO Eliot Brenner, PhD. “We strive to ensure that our clients’ experiences with our agency are always positive, and having this artwork displayed as families enter the building serves to brighten their spirits. In addition to promoting an environment of healing, CGC’s in-house gallery is also a venue for local artists to display their work.”

Be sure to stop by our West Broad waiting room quarterly to view new and creative pieces by local, talented artists.
