I’m Robert. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Lifestyle and Results Life Coach. I received my degree at Pace University and conducted my therapeutic hours at New York Presbyterian; renounced as one of the most effective counseling/treatment centers in the world. I served in the armed forces, where I was dispatched to hospitals all around New York State for the Coronavirus outbreak. Through-out my counseling career, I’ve had experience in working with individual psychotherapy, groups, out-patient, in-patient, residential programs, day-habilitation programs, schools, hospitals, mentorship programs and also businesses. With these experiences, I provided service in areas of PTSD, depression, grief, career concerns, motivation, confidence building, work ethic, behavior interventions, leadership coaching, lifestyle changes, anxiety relief and attaining personal goals. My therapeutic style is direct, warm, creative and looks for ways that my clients can enjoy the experience. No matter what any of my clients may be going through or experiences they face; I know they can utilize these experiences to become better versions of themselves. My therapeutic approach is similar to methods that of cognitive behavioral therapy, in which I implement goal setting for clients who especially struggle to attain their valued outcomes. Other methods I utilize are that of solution-focused and also acceptance and commitment therapy; in which I assist clients with growing beyond their stressors and evolve. I am passionate about providing therapeutic treatment as well as quality improvement towards treatment outcomes. My main goal is to redefine a person to allow them to become the best version of themselves.

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Port Washington North licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice.

Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information.
