14 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hello! I'm Jim, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed in both Florida and Connecticut. I'd like to support you in building the life you imagine! Life can be happy, joyous, and fulfilling. However, life can also be challenging at times. Challenges may involve external situations which we're currently facing, they may be internal struggles involving our feelings and thoughts, or both. During these challenging times, it is often beneficial to work with an empathetic, supportive, and knowledgeable therapist who will assist you in taking the steps necessary to deal with such challenges effectively and move forward with your life. I have 14 years of experience as a therapist working with adolescents, adults, and seniors dealing with a variety of issues. I have worked as a therapist in a nonprofit outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment agency, treating clients with depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders. As a primary therapist in an inpatient substance abuse treatment facility, I have supported clients as they begin their journeys of sobriety and recovery. I have also assisted patients and family members facing end-of-life issues as a home hospice social worker.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our initial Intake Session, we will get to know each other, discuss your therapeutic goals, address and questions or concerns you might have, and complete an Initial Assessment.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I believe that the most important tool in supporting clients is the therapeutic relationship itself. I offer a safe, nonjudgmental, and accepting environment in which clients can work through their issues.
