Hi! I am Dr. Solomons (Austin Solomons, DSW, LCSW)! I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a demonstrated history of success working with clients who experience stress, generalized anxiety, depressive symptoms, and relationship problems.
I have 15 years of professional work experience helping people with stress, anxiety, relationship issues, & depression. I also have experience working with coping with life changes. I work with couples to repair trust, improve communication, and strengthen their emotional intimacy with each other. Please see this short description of my career:
