I specialize with young women and adolescents dealing with self esteem issues, as well as emerging adults, and adults adjusting to role changes, pressures and uncertainty.
There is a great deal of uncertainty, disappointment, and loss at this time. Sometimes situations become too difficult for us to handle on our own. Receiving support and guidance can be helpful in building self confidence and strength to handle situations that arise, and address conflicts. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, experienced in working with adults and young adults, treating a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, self esteem , relationship conflicts, pregnancy, postpartum, and divorce.

Currently accepting clients for in person and Telehealth sessions. I enjoy my work as a therapist. The cornerstone of my success is my ability to provide a safe environment, listen intently, and genuinely engage with the individuals and families that I meet. Perhaps you are on the precipice of change, and you just can't take the first step. Maybe you are taking inventory of your life, and you need guidance on how to sum up your past and learn how to make new decisions in this moment with your eyes wide open.

Let’s face it, navigating life can at times be an overwhelming and emotionally isolating experience! Many of us have been socialized to "save face" and “push through” especially during times of struggle. While this may serve us in the short-term, eventually those suppressed feelings begin to impact our personal, romantic, and sexual life. My practice provides mental, emotional, and sexual health support that is affirmative, sex-positive, and trauma-informed. Together we can slow down and lean into vulnerability as we explore what is truly concerning for you.

There are times when stress, conflict, fear, uncertainty, sadness and anxiety take over. It is very hard to go through this alone and sometimes friends and family may not understand. Talking to a professional can be very relieving. It is amazing the shift that can take place when you start to talk. I am a non-judgmental, interactive and supportive therapist who will listen to you and help you move towards positive change.

One of the most difficult things to do is to recognize we need help... for even the strongest and most healthy can need a trusted mentor and healer at some point. Our personal lives and experiences shouldn't be trusted to just anyone; and it is difficult to find a qualified therapist who is both skilled in their work and able to connect with others in an empathetic way. Rob has this blend of unique and important abilities. He believes that successful therapy is working toward the ability to heal, recover, and thrive in one's life.

I am currently only offering tele-health services. I have trained in a variety of mental health settings treating adolescents and adults. These settings include hospitals, community clinics and private practice. I believe that therapy is an essential way to understand how the emotional and physical bodies are connected. Gaining insight of the internal self, and learning the mind-body connection, guides us to acknowledging and accepting our actions, reactions, and behaviors. Throughout my career I have worked with individuals struggling with fertility issues, trauma, anxiety, self-esteem, depression, and martial discord.

During the last 15 years of my professional work, I have developed effective strategies that help families successfully overcome difficult times. My area of specialty is family therapy. I work with children ages 5-18. With the little ones, I use play therapy and mindfulness skills. Older, school aged children, learn coping skills to improve emotional regulation and impulse control, as well as learn how to confidently navigate social relationships with peers. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) helps these youngsters understand how their thoughts and feelings impact their behavior and self-esteem.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
