About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona (LPC) and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Ohio (LPCC) and I have been working in the counseling field since 1987. I have, also, been an Adjunct Professor in the Counseling Department at Paradise Valley Community College since 2014. I have experience conducting individual, couples, family, and group therapy, in-office and online working with clients presenting a wide range of issues including, depression, stress, anxiety, self-esteem concerns, relationship and parenting issues, family conflict, and teen concerns. I have worked with clients that present issues that include, grief/loss, insomnia, addiction, trauma, abuse, as well as personal growth, adjustment issues, coping with life changes, and work-related issues.

I see every person (client) as unique and having special personal qualities. I treat everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don’t believe in stigmatizing labels. My counseling style is warm and interactive and I am an excellent listener. My person-centered approach combines, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, and rational emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to set goals to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you

I look forward to working with you!

I value Bob’s insight that he gives during our sessions. He has been able to help me get through a lot of tough issues, and I feel not a lot of people in my life/or even any people have been able to do that for me. Thanks Bob!

Robert was able to focus on my concerns and provide viable solutions to the difficulties I was facing. It is extremely apparent that Robert puts his clients first and provided relatable advice. Thank you!

Bob takes the time to read the journal entries I share with him and gives me feedback where and when he can. After working with Bob, I feel "heard". Sometimes that's all one really needs. I like the way he shares his experience and expertise but doesn't preach to me about things I should already know. It's hard to come away from therapy and not be reclusive or emotional about the issues discussed. But with Bob, I actually feel optimistic after our sessions and I'm thinking about things in a new light. I'm so grateful to have him as my therapist.

I am glad to be connected with Robert. He is trained to identify the need of the patient who is compassionate, patient and supports the need to provide his expertise no matter the situation , ask or just listen.

Bob is great! He is very insightful and has a gentle way of helping you and that’s really beneficial to me as a highly sensitive person that I am. It’s a first for me having a male therapist and it’s good to be flexible and have an open mind. We have been working through traumas from growing up with an alcoholic mother and now I’m able to reframe my views. I find a lot of value in the worksheets and books he has suggested. I have had a few breakthroughs in just 5 weeks of working with him and look forward to continue my progress. Thank you Bob

It was a pleasure to be talking to Robert. He is a patient and calm soul. During our sessions he helped me a lot to get over my worries and problems. He expertly tailored the therapy to my needs and always responded quickly if I had any issues. I am surely happy to have met him.

I was hesitant about working with a counselor thinking my troubles weren't great enough and I would be wasting everyone's time and resources. Working with Bob, I learned that I am worthy of being listened to and that my feelings and needs are valid. He offered support and encouragement when necessary and pushed me to really explore my feelings and life desires when appropriate. I suppose I'll always have work to do, but Bob helped me develop coping skills that I use regularly and will have with me always.

I have had splendid success seeking counseling from Bob. He hears and observes me and offers logical feedback that I don't always see on my own. I believe Bob to be very talented at what he does. I highly recommend him.

Work with me!
