About Me

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 have to be clear that I work at night. My Schedule is from 9:30pm to 11:30pm Sunday Through Wednesday. 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.

Robert has been providing me a great help and guidance to better assess my conditions and how to handle stressful situations arise. He is a pleasant person to speak with who naturally possesses a positive energy. He is great!

Robert is excellent to work with. He takes the time to hear me out and listen to me, relate to my concerns and sometimes share his own experiences, and I feel he truly understands me. He gives me a lot of insight to myself and I look forward to our sessions and growing more from them.

Before I started therapy, I was afraid of who I was going to be communicating with. The first time I met Robert, he made it so easy for me to open up. And it wasn’t just because he was easy to talk to. He helped me take breaths or feel the reactions to my body and guided me through opening up without blaming myself or feeling guilty about the things I need to be said. Thanks to Robert, I found a peace in me that helps me walk through life and not try to get over it. I am very grateful he’s my therapist and if I ever need someone I know I can come back and he’ll be someone I can talk to.

Oh where do I begin! Robert was my very first counselor and I will say I am so glad he was. At first I was very skeptical, but he made me feel heard and validated. He taught me things about myself I didn't even know I needed till then. And with all the sessions we had, I can confidently say, they changed my life for the better. I am so grateful for this

Robert has been my first therapist ever. I felt validated and heard. My first session made a lot of my doubts in my observations I’ve made for problems I’ve been facing. Robert was thorough and validated my perspective and made me understand it is OK to feel my emotions. But not to fall into them.
