Who We Are

Our Counseling Practice

Our experience enables us to offer effective outpatient, individualized care using a body, mind and soul approach, through biblical principles. We treat a number of mental health disorders and believe that without hope it is very difficult to overcome.  Hope comes from knowing the truth and truth only comes from one place.  The Well is a place that offers the opportunity to find hope and help for a full life by exposing you to the mental, physical and spiritual truths that have the power to set you free.

Our Treatment Focus

Our focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strength. Our success has been in helping you become honest and transparent, even when you make mistakes in your life.  Exposing lies and misconceptions about who you are and whose you are is key to healing and becoming whole.  When it comes to recovery, The Well does not believe that is only a substance abuse issue but any life controlling problem a person puts before the real solution. Take the time to ask yourself, do you want to be controlled by lies for the rest of your life or be radically moved into light by truth?  The choice is up to you.

Our Client Promise

We promise to be there for you every step of your journey. Our goal is to help you grow and use your struggles to heal from pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. Living fully, mentally, physically and spiritually. 

Our Approach

Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling mentally and spiritually while referring you to medical, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 

Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger from post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing into walking more in light and in purpose. 



Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and if neccesary individually giving you both a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.     

About Us

President/CEO and Counselor

Paul Ammendola is not only the President/CEO of The Well but also a dedicated, caring counselor with over 13 years experience in mental health counseling, recovery and the formerly incarcerated.  As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, he has learned the art of integrating multiple psychotherapy models blended with spirituality.  Paul is also the Substance Abuse Director at HealthCare Choices and former Executive Director and Co-Builder of Bridges of New York.  He has been a leader and innovator in New York raising the bar on counseling and mentorship programs, bringing it to a new respected standard since 2003.  He is also a member of the Nassau, Orange and Kings County Reentry taskforces and has worked closely with Nassau County and the Department of Corrections at the State and County levels.

Paul has been a business owner in multiple arenas from counseling to music. He continues to seek innovative ways to help people live free, hopeful and productive lives in an intensely challenging world filled with so many different confusing paths.  Having a business background, and business education combined with finance and counseling makes for the successful driving force behind the vision of a brand new model of help at The Well.

Paul is also a seasoned singer, musician and songwriter, leading worship all throughout New York with the band Red Words.  The band’s music continues to evolve but has a central theme that focusses mostly on honesty, transparency, hope and healing.  It is very easy to see that the bands message travels along very clear lines that explore many different issues coming from personal experience as well as years of helping others, counseling and spirituality.  Paul will not only be there to help now but will continue to be an encouragement for years to come. 

Events and Conferences - with guest speakers and the music of Red Words

In the summer of 2012, founding members, Paul Ammendola (lead vocals, keys) and Mark Phillips (lead guitar, vocals), teamed up with close friends, Michael Perrone (guitar, vocals) and John Foote (drums, percussion) to provide music for a ministry event. As they delivered their eclectic blend of soul-baring vocals, crunching rock-n-roll guitars, and tasteful grooves, the audience quickly realized that they had experienced something very special.  After a number of other well-received events, Jaime Moore (bass guitar) was added to finalize the line-up.  With the band fully formed, their repertoire quickly grew, as did their popularity.  Now -- with an ever-growing fan base -- Red Words aims to further expand their audience.  Red Words released their highly anticipated self-titled CD in October 2014, exemplifying their original sound (an effective hybrid of edgy rock, R&B, pop, gospel and soul).  This rock band, however, also has a message and it’s one the world desperately needs to hear:  God Loves You (no matter where you are or what you’ve done).  It’s easy to get discouraged in today’s world of stress and social clutter. It’s easy to lose hope. “Our music is about finding joy and hope in a dark world,” says Ammendola.  The “red words” that Jesus spoke are not only to be read, but are meant to be lived out.  Music is powerful.  It can stir souls, change hearts, and restore lives.  With an aim to do just that, it’s time now to throw the doors wide open for Red Words, let love loose… and turn up the volume!
