My name is Robert and I would be honored to be your Therapist. I would like to tell you about myself. I have been a Social Worker for the past 20 years and I have worked with a lot of different people in a variety of situations.
I am working on a new schedule. My schedule is 6am to 2:00 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, 6 am to 11 am then 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm Tuesdays and Thursdays as well as Sundays from 1pm to 8 pm Sundays Pacific Standard Time. I am very comfortable conducting therapy via video or phone but not Live chat
The most important thing I need you to know about me and how I work is that I believe Social Work to be a calling and I truly believe in the power of Therapy to change lives. I believe that talking about the things that hurt us provides us with the power to overcome them.
I am more interested in your strengths than your diagnoses. I am more interested in empowering you to make your own decisions than I am in you doing what is “right.”
Regarding therapy, I am not bound to any one theoretical approach. I tend to utilize a variety of approaches in therapy because I want to provide you with a personalized therapeutic experience.
I need you to know that I will only focus on what you think is important. I will not push you to share anything that you are not comfortable sharing but I will ask you questions about things I think are important to provide insight into the situation at hand.
I will always be honest with you in every situation and I will continue to exhibit compassion and empathy towards your situation. One of my favorite sayings regarding therapy is that “It matters because it matters to you.” I look forward to working with you.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue

Robert always listens and respects where I am at. He takes his time to explain things and never pressures me to make any decisions I am not ready for. He has great knowledge about grief and addiction.

Robert has been extremely helpful and amazing throughout the past few months that we have been working together! He is the best and I feel very comfortable sharing my life experiences and struggles with him. I never feel judged and he always guides me in the right direction. He helps me work through many obstacles and provides tangible steps on how to overcome them. I have learned so much about myself already and really enjoy the self work I am doing. I feel like I am improving with his guidance a little better each day. Continuing to look forward to what more we unlock together throughout my journey in therapy!

I worked with Robert for the last 7 months or so and I can honestly say I will miss having sessions with him. He helped me so much in building a stronger self-esteem, setting healthier boundaries, validating my self-worth, and affirming me and all my stresses. I will truly miss having sessions, and also super appreciate that we got this point where I can take a break from therapy and stand on my own. I have nothing but praise and gratitude for what Robert's done for me, and highly recommend him to folks looking for a therapist. Wishing Robert will for many years to come!
