About

I consider myself a modern therapist. Modern therapy, for modern times. I've lived a fast-paced life with many ups and downs. Resultantly, I am authentic, down-to-earth and open-minded. I am unconditionally accepting of people of all ages, all walks of life, and all experiences. It can be beneficial to seek help from someone outside our situations to help us find ways to make positive change, and move through these trying times. Modern therapy, for modern times. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor.
We have day and evening hours available. We also numerous prescribers we collaborate with that can assess you if needed.

Robert Girard's Groups

Clean & Sober Living Group

THERE IS HOPE. Few alcoholics and addicts feel comfortable attending 12 step meetings. I've discovered that the most effective addiction treatment entails self-help & peer support: these are hard to come by in office practice. However, I have developed an approach that engages the support of a small group, some family, some friends, to meet with a substance abuser and therapist at regular intervals to secure abstinence and help with the development of a drug-free life. Social supports are necessary for overcoming the denial and relapse that are so compromising to effective care for the substance abuser.
