About Me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Idaho with over 13 years of experience working as a counselor and case manager. I have worked with clients with mental health and addiction issues in a variety of setting in private and institutional settings. I have focused on treating anxiety, depression, trauma issues, and those in crisis. I have also worked with people who are experiencing addiction issues, sexual abusers, and suicidal clients.

My counseling style is open and motivational. I believe in treating clients with honesty, compassion and friendliness, while maintaining focus on solutions. My approach combines narrative therapy with motivational interviewing and solution-focused treatment. I work with clients to identify personal goals and use realistic tools that are simple, effective, and research-based.

I believe that people discover their inner strengths when they are given the right opportunity. If you or someone you know is ready to work on taking the steps to self-improvement or managing a difficult time, I am here to assist in any way I can.

Reviews

Written by M.I. on Oct 06, 2021 after therapy with Rob for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

After my initial meeting with Rob, I found that he is a great person to speak your mind to. He is open and honest. He is a great listener and comes up with very good advice. I will be continuing my sessions with him.
