Bob Gallo, LCSW, BCD, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Aptos
I enjoy being a psychotherapist and take pride in doing good work. Being in the field for over 20 years has given me a broad range of experience and knowledge that I bring to my practice. Besides helping with recent and long-standing concerns or difficulties, therapy can also play an important role in furthering one's personal and spiritual growth. I maintain a diverse practice working with people who seek assistance for a wide range of concerns/hopes related to depression, anxiety, relationships, parenting, self-esteem/self-worth, life transitions, life direction and purpose, trauma, grief, etc.
My clients continually demonstrate the capacity that all of us have for healing, feeling better, having fulfilling relationships, and living joyfully. Therapy is most effective when there is a good "fit" between oneself and the therapist. I am thoughtful, interactive, empathic, and insightful. People find me easy to relate to.
My work is informed by a variety of approaches that I utilize to address each person's unique situation. I consult to/supervise clinicians, social service providers, early-childhood educators, and administrators. I conduct psycho-social/diagnostic evaluations for people completing Immigration Hardship Waiver requests. And, I work in Spanish.
