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!

Written by J.I. on Dec 03, 2021 after therapy with Robert for 5 months

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.

He responds to my messages in a timely manner and respects me. I appreciate that.
