I’m so glad you found me.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself, how I approach therapy, and what you can expect from our time together.
I have found meaning in working with adolescents and adults who are experiencing a variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, anger, grief, the impact of psychological trauma, relationship problems, and life transitions. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania where I earned my Master’s degree from Eastern University in 2014. Since that time I have worked in a variety of settings including schools, community behavioral health centers, and a group practice.
How I Approach Therapy
The foundation for my work is simply the belief that all of us were built for relationships. As a result, the relationship between therapist and person-in-therapy is the vehicle for change. You will find that my work includes a Client-Centered approach to building therapeutic rapport and incorporates several different models for change. I often draw from Cognitive Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and most prominently from a Psychodynamic approach.
Those are all very clinical terms! I'm happy to help you understand the concepts underlying my practice if you'd like.
What You Can Expect
Providing a warm, non-judgmental space in which people feel secure is most important to me. In that space my desire is to first and foremost listen and provide assurance that you are heard. I am here to be a witness to you and your story. As much as I can, I want to hold up a mirror and reflect what I am seeing and hearing. All in an effort to offer you insight and self-awareness that can be used for change.
Services and Payment
All of the above happens through individual counseling sessions. Currently all sessions are conducted virtually.
I am an out-of-network provider and the fee per session is $100.
All payments are processed through PayPal.
“Robert is a kind, empathetic, and active listener and asks excellent questions. He has a knack for summarizing what I'm struggling to say in a concise way. Over the last five years we have covered a wide variety of topics that have come up in my life (past and present) and worked through them all. Very grateful for him and would highly recommend him to anyone.” - Age 29
“I'm so grateful to Robert. We've spent a few years working together, and he's successfully given me a variety of skills and tools to manage the stressors in my life. I'm in a much better place mentally and emotionally thanks to his patience, kindness, and insightful feedback--and he's unafraid to pick out points and perspectives that perhaps I haven't thought of. Thank you Robert! I appreciate our time together.” - Age 37
