Prior to that he worked in community outpatient settings. Roland has worked with clients in a variety of capacities from school-based mental health to outpatient individual, group, and family therapy.

Philosophy of Care

Biologically speaking, some people experience thoughts, feelings, and events more intensely than others. They also may experience a higher baseline of emotional intensity.  It takes more time to get over things that other people can seemingly overcome without any difficulty. Depending on a person’s upbringing and social/environmental experiences, it may be more difficult to manage these reactions.  When our emotions are out of balance, we tend to act as such. As a result of behaviorally responding to these emotions, we tend to see changes in our relationships and sense of self as well. Whether it’s anxiety or fear, depression or hopelessness, or a general low sense of well-being, it takes courage to seek help.  Sometimes that is the most difficult step. Generally speaking, the best thing I could ever do is to help you get to where you want to be. We’re two equals moving toward a destination; you are the captain and I’m your co-pilot, let’s make today the first step toward feeling better.
