About Me

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to consider me as your BetterHelp therapist! I’m here to provide the help you need to make changes in your mental health to achieve the quality of life that you’ve been searching for.

I have invested a lot of myself into learning many different therapy methods so that I have the most effective strategies to address the presenting problem. Sometimes it can be tough to convince the brain to go along with what we want it to do; I just know the evidence based techniques to help make that happen. My approach to therapy isn’t so much to get you feeling better temporarily at the moment, but more to actually resolve the issues, thoughts, and patterns that repetitively occur so you don’t have to deal with them in the future. The short version is: do you want to talk about it, or do you want to fix it?

The choice of therapy modality will be tailored to fit your needs based on what you would like to improve. I have 9 years of clinical experience providing effective short term therapy including:
• EMDR
• Personality disorders treatment
• CBT
• TF-CBT
• DBT
• Motivational Interviewing
• Solution Focused Therapy
• Person Centered Therapy

I’m here to provide the support and knowledge you’ve been looking for to make the positive changes in your life.

Robert has been a great help! Simple solutions and easy to talk to, great attitude, and has made the counselling experience very comfortable and enjoyable for a first timer like myself. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Robert is a very knowledgeable counselor. I was surprised how I only had to tell him half of the stories about my feelings and he could identify the other half by himself based on his knowledge and experience. Robert is very supportive and caring and not at all judgmental. I am glad to have been matched with Robert.
