Bob Butler, LCSW

“My goal is to help you reach your goal – blending my range of professional experience with my personal presence and compassion.”

  • What do you want in your life?
  • What’s important to you?
  • What’s getting in the way?
  • What steps can you take right now?


Bob’s therapeutic focus is an active, goal-oriented approach to help clarify where you want to go and move forward. He trusts in your inner wisdom and capabilities – yet he also understands how fear and confusion can obscure your view and freeze your motivation. Together with his clients, he clears the view and finds ways to get beyond the obstacles you face.

Insight and understanding of the nature and source of problems is important – but only ACTION brings about change. Bob helps you take the essential steps you decide are right, in a courageous and effective way.
