About Ron

My counseling approach is rooted in client-centered psychotherapy. Counseling is a collaboration between client and counselor. You, the client are the ultimate authority in your life. I am grounded in psychodynamic psychotherapy, mindfulness, cognitive/behavioral therapies, internal family systems, EMDR and psychoeducational and mind/body techniques. I will work with you to tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

In 1991 I began my counseling career working with individuals experiencing substance abuse and legal problems. This experience propelled my desire to become a clinical social worker. I earned a masters degree in social work in 1998 and have been a licensed clinical social worker since 2004.

Over the last 17 years I have had the satisfaction and pleasure of counseling men, women, children, families and groups ranging in ages from 9 to 90 years old. They have been from Caucasian, African-American, Asian-Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, and Hispanic races and cultures. I have worked with people in various stages of their lives. I have provided counseling in community and mental health clinics, military installations and most recently with the Department of Veterans Affair’s Readjustment Counseling Service. Most of my career has been in outpatient environments.

I am well versed and experienced in supporting clients experiencing a variety of problems. Most of those are listed above. I will coordinate with medical and psychiatric providers and have a sound knowledge of the medications that are used by these providers to treat these problems. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you and help you out!"
