How I can help you…

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist who works with individuals of all ages and various presenting concerns, but I specialize in working with young adults (ages 18-35) who are experiencing mental health, substance use, or life-transitional issues (e.g. beginning college, launching into adulthood, managing relationships, grief/loss, etc.). Drawing from various theories in understanding the roots of suffering and discontentment, I take a non-judgmental, curious, compassionate approach to guiding you to a place of healing and wellness.

No matter what circumstances led us to where we are today, I believe that we all have the potential to be happy and content. It takes work to get there, but with a commitment to therapy, you’ll soon find yourself on the path to a better future.

Choosing to begin therapy and addressing difficult emotions, behaviors, and thinking patterns head on is an act of courage and bravery. I consider it an honor for individuals, like yourself, to allow me to partner with you on this journey. I am happy to answer any questions you may have or to schedule an appointment with you.

Background and Training

Paul was born and raised in Massachusetts. He attended high school at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury, MA and then went on to graduate with a Business Degree from Stonehill College in Easton, MA. Paul began a career in the business world, but after several years, realized their was a lack of satisfaction with this path. This is when Paul began his own journey into self-exploration and figuring out the path that was right for him.

Paul began his career in the Mental Health field with Wediko Children Services, working as a residential counselor with adolescents struggling with emotional and behavioral services. He continued his work with Wediko in the Boston Public School system. Recognizing this field brought him a great deal of satisfaction and fulfillment, he went on to receive his clinical training and Graduate Degree at Boston College School of Social Work. Since then, Paul has worked with young adults in inpatient, residential, and outpatient settings who were experiencing struggles related to substance use, mental health, behavioral issues, and emotional well-being.

Paul looks forward to partnering with you in your own journey to self-discovery and well-being.
