Rick was born in New York state and has lived most of his life in New England. He is a father of three and a grandfather of eight. His hobbies include: calligraphy, photography, the tarot and playing the violin.
He strives to have a rich spiritual life which influences his work with patients.
Rick has thirty-five years of experience in the field of substance abuse and chemical dependency. Additionally, he offers Employee Assistance through select EAP programs and offers consultation to local social service agencies on specific issues and client populations. He also has experience working with those with intellectual and developmental delays.
Rick offers an ongoing Jungian-based psychotherapy dream group.
He is accompanied each day by his little helper, Olive, his three-year old Llasa Apso, who has been trained to go down to the waiting room to get the next patient. Of course, she only makes the trip if she knows a treat is waiting for her upstairs. That is the deal!
And, if she is in the way, she is all too eager to go rest in her crate.
