About Robert

I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Toledo in Special Education and taught children with psychological and learning challenges for 3 years. I then received a Master’s Degree from George Williams College in Counseling Psychology and started working for a private practice while completing my doctorate. After earning my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology I worked in various settings doing psychotherapy and psychological evaluations with people of all ages.

I work well with adolescents with emotional or behavior difficulties, as well as adults with anxiety, depression, trauma, severe psychological difficulties, substance abuse and relational problems. I also have many years of experience in the psychological assessment and diagnosis of children and adults. I have evaluated children, adolescents and adults with a variety of concerns including: school and family evaluations for children and adolescents, forensic evaluations, and fitness to work evaluations. I believe that I do my best work in individual psychotherapy with adolescents and adults.

What I’m like as a therapist:

My belief is that psychotherapy is most beneficial when there is a trusting and supportive relational foundation for the therapy. I aspire to help my patients feel supported and curious about the issues that brought them to therapy. I enjoy helping patients go deeper into understanding and feeling their way into their relationships and their inner life with themselves and their relationships with others. I believe that helping patients learn more about their inner life and how that informs their personal and relational lives is an important part of therapeutic success. Empathy and self-understanding are critical.
