(LMHC)

About Me

I have thirty years experience in the mental health field. I have extensive knowledge and experience working with people suffering from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, psychosis, schizophrenia, OCD, trauma, PTSD, domestic violence, complicated grief and relationship issues. For 17 years I have worked in a day treatment program where I provided individual, group and family counseling targeting clients suffering with range of issues from ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorders, physical/sexual abuse and substance abuse. I am currently devoted to clients suffering from Schizophrenia, Schizo-Affective Disorders and Major Depression where I provide them with psychoeducation regarding medications, symptomatology, and connecting them to community services to optimize their functioning in the community.
I am a highly trained clinician who enjoys working with a multicultural population where I treat all my clients with sensitivity and respect. I incorporate a vast range of clinical interventions into my practice: CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Person-Centered, Anger Management, Relaxation Training and Psychoanalytic Treatment.
Listening to others in a caring and empathetic manner has been crucial in my ability to develop trusting relationships with others. I maintain a nonjudgmental stance with awareness of one's cultural beliefs and values and provide an atmosphere where one has the ability to cope through difficult times within their lives. Being able to reach for help is a crucial step in your decision to make a change in your life. Regardless what comes across in our lives, we have the ability to choose one’s way, to challenge ourselves through our struggles and become stronger individuals. I am looking forward to working with you.

Honestly Andrew has been the best counselor I’ve worked with in my past 26 years of living. He helps me every week to get better and feel better. I was in a really bad point and I really need help. I’m glad that I got paired up with Andrew because he’s really helped me progress and makes me feel normal.

Written by G.R. on Apr 30, 2018 after counseling with Andrew for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I enjoyed working with this counselor. I had clearly defined goals at the beginning of the process, and he tailored our sessions to move toward meeting those goals. I appreciated his efforts to incorporate wisdom and techniques from outside sources (books, articles, Web sites, etc.), as well as offering his own experiences. I am grateful for the time we spent working together.
