I assist individuals to honestly evaluate their need to control substance use , anger and other potentially self-destructive and hurtful behaviors.
If you cling to habitual patterns of reaction and interaction that keep you from reaching your full social, romantic and career potential... If a traumatic life event or ongoing family conflict is overwhelming you... If depression, poorly controlled emotions or stifling self-consciousness are holding you back... It's time to take charge of your life again and begin the path to greater personal fulfillment. For more details on my background and how I work, consult my website at: RobMullerPhD.com.

After several years in the Italian Navy and then working as a Registered Nurse, I received training in Counseling Psychology and worked for many years in community-based outpatient settings and private practice where I help people address their issues with depression, anxiety, and substance use .
In my practice I am guided by the belief that change is possible and that every person has the capacity for healthy growth and development but may at times need help in accessing inner resources for positive change. I believe a therapist-client relationship that is characterized by empathy, curiosity, acceptance and caring is what facilitates the therapeutic process. I aim to provide an environment where my clients feel safe and free to explore their feelings, thoughts, needs and goals - an environment where we can work together at understanding what is keeping them from living a more fulfilling life.

In addition to treating anxiety, depression, and relationship issues, I have experience in substance use counseling and enjoy working with clients who are concerned about their substance use .
I specialize in adult psychotherapy, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, substance use , trauma, relationships, and LGBTQ issues. It can be hard to experience hope when we feel stuck in old patterns of thinking and feeling about life, ourselves, and our relationships. This can lead to feelings of stress, confusion, unhappiness, or disappointment. I work to help individuals and couples to examine these patterns and to explore and experiment with new ways of thinking and acting, which in turn can have dramatic impact on how they are feeling.

I primarily work with adults experiencing difficulties related to depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, trauma, grief, or struggling to cope with stress and change.
As a clinical social worker, I work from a strengths-based, person-centered, and deeply collaborative perspective. We become a team in your therapy journey. My approach to therapy is eclectic, but I mostly draw from cognitive-behavioral frameworks. I also believe humor can play an important role in the therapeutic process. Clients work hard in therapy, and moments of levity can help reframe and normalize struggles in a positive manner.

Whether you're facing anxiety, depression, gender or sexuality issues, body image or self-esteem concerns, the effects of trauma, substance use issues, or are feeling stuck in relationships, professional life, or in achieving your goals, we'll work together to move you forward.
Choosing a therapist can be a daunting task, often undertaken at a time when one is feeling less than powerful. I offer a free phone consultation to potential clients, during which we'll get to know a little bit about each other, and I can answer any questions about the therapeutic process, including scheduling and fees. In my practice, I make use of a variety of theoretical frameworks to help understand and address your symptoms. I employ elements of cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, psychodynamic, art and music therapies, but my focus is always on you as a whole person, understood in the context of your environment.
