Rob’s Practice Areas
Rob works collaboratively with clients, in a true therapeutic alliance. He weaves humor, wit, and wisdom into each session to help clients realize that, although their issues are real, that it is okay to laugh in session and that this can aid in healing. In
Rob’s experience, clients often feel surprised when experiencing success, he suspects it is because they often lack confidence in early sessions. This surprise can be very valuable, as Rob can help them reframe their thinking to increase self-confidence.
By acting as their coach, Rob assists clients to develop discrepancy—the contrast between their current “real” self and future “imagined” self—which is self-motivating. Rob’s primary goals as a treating professional are to help the client alleviate symptoms (e.g., anxiety, mood, anger), assume a more rational/logical way of looking at things, develop effective coping strategies and, ultimately, gain mastery of these strategies to better deal with challenges independently.
