My name is Rick Rothman. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Assistant Director at Specialized Therapy Associates.
I strongly believe in treating the person as a unique person given their individual needs. I primarily practice cognitive-behavior therapy utilizing an eclectic style and often use anecdotes, paradoxes, and especially humor in order to enhance, educate, and assist in reaching each person’s goals.
I have a specialty in treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorders, and Anxiety and am developing an OCD program here at Specialized Therapy Associates. While I specialize in treating those suffering OCD, Panic, and Anxiety, I am equally proud of the successes I’ve had in helping those with Adjustment Disorders, Stress Management, Depression, Relationship Difficulties, and Family Concerns. My clinical experience includes individual, marital/couple, family, and group therapy of adolescents, adults, and older adults. As a husband and parent of a teenage girl, I understand and empathize with the difficulties that many of us face in our day-to-day lives.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Georgia and a master’s degree in social work from Fordham University. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers and am a certified school social worker. In addition to working with clients, I am certified to provide supervision and training to clinical social work trainees.
I have been a Social Worker for over 25 years and have been in private practice for over 10 years. I offer experience having worked as both a clinical provider and administrator in private practice, hospital, partial care, and long-term care settings.
