Geoffrey believes in a client-centered approach to effective problem-solving, and his clinical knowledge and experience allow him to help clients with their unique goals and challenges.

He is an empathetic communicator, passionate about helping his clients develop insight and tools to improve their lives. He continually strives to make the therapy experience a positive, safe, and rewarding one. Geoffrey’s education and internships in hospital and outpatient settings helped him develop a diverse set of tools and techniques focused on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). He uses these methods to help clients recognize patterns and habits that don’t serve them, and to develop patterns and habits that do.

Geoffrey attended the Fordham Graduate School of Social Services, where he graduated with honors and a dual focus master’s degree (MSW) in clinical social work and leadership. He earned his BA from Connecticut College in New London, CT where he double majored in psychology and theater.
