I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts with over 15 years experience, and I have worked with many different types of mental health issues including schizophrenia, major depression, anxiety disorders, low self esteem and assertiveness issues, relationship problems, and parenting and/or family related issues. I am opposed to discrimination or abuse of any kind by anyone regardless of whether it is a personal or professional relationship, and I have been advocating for people with mental health issues for many years.
I try to focus on helping people to believe in themselves, and I choose to work collaboratively with people towards their own life goals. If you are uncertain of which direction you would like to go, we can discuss together what brought you to this site and what treatment plan might work for your needs. I use cognitive behavioral approaches along with solution focused talk therapy to achieve the goals we will set.
The level of effort and work required will differ from person to person, but I will be in your corner every step of the way. I look forward to meeting you and working with you.

Bruce is very thoughtful in his responses and knows when to give me the solution or guide me to it. I’ve enjoyed our sessions so far and highly recommend working with him. In particular, he gives me a different perspective and responds even outside of our live sessions. Thank you, Bruce!
