I am a licensed clinical social worker living in Pennsylvania. While skilled in many modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Modern Psychoanalysis and similar approaches, no size fits all. What I try to do is connect with clients directly, learn about who they are as human beings, and work together with them on a plan to have them feeling better, rather than try to fit that person into a theory. I also want each person to feel safe, respected and comfortable when working with me, and I will do whatever I can to ensure that I create that type of environment.
I have had much success in working with people who feel that they have the bad luck of encountering the same relationship problems over and over again, even though they have tried to resolve those problems previously with themselves and with other people. Often clients will report that despite breakups or divorces, or friendships that end badly, that they continue to meet the same type of individuals, who don't respond to their needs, even though at first, the relationship seems to be going so well, and noticeably different than previous ones that failed. I can help you to track down the sources of these repeating problems to reduce the chances that they will continue to occur.
I work well with gay and lesbians, especially those who for a number of reasons, have felt or feel uncomfortable in being who they are, and who they want to love or feel that they need to pretend either and home and/at work. I also work with unresolved grief, and with those who are at a crossroads in their lives.

I find Dr Armand extremely helpful, polite and he responds to my messages quickly. He is taking in the information I am providing him to enable him to find out more about me as a person and my concerns and needs. I have agreed to work closely with him for the long term future.
