Manager of Behavioral Health Services

Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Rob received his MSW from the University at Buffalo School of Social Work and has over 30 years of clinical, administrative and management experience working in various non-profit human service organizations.   Prior to joining the SMG team, Rob was Director of Psychosocial Support Services for Hospice Buffalo, where he worked in collaboration with the interdisciplinary medical team, providing clinical and administrative oversight for homecare and nursing home social workers, the Hospice bereavement counselor, and Life Transitions Center, an affiliate community based program of Hospice.   He has also worked at Child & Family Services, where he was responsible for the development, marketing and management of a comprehensive employee assistance program.   Along with his administrative and managerial background, Rob has had clinical experience providing individual, family and group counseling in an alcoholism rehab program and family service agency.  As Manager of Behavioral Health Services, Rob is responsible for clinical and administrative coordination of care for patients in need of assistance for mental health, substance abuse and other behavioral health concerns.  “My philosophy is that patients should not be defined by their condition or diagnosis.  They are people who come to us in with a history of personal, family, and social experiences, sometimes associated with some type of trauma, which needs to be integrated into the care we provide for them.”
