Family Counseling, LLC
Mark joined Parkside after a varied career of full time social work jobs, most recently working with high school students and their families. He has worked in community mental health, private contractual, hospital and substance abuse treatment settings. Working part time at Parkside allows Mark to engage in outdoor activities and have a more balanced lifestyle including adequate exercise and other aspects of taking care of himself.
After getting acquainted, Mark would love to work with you to develop a plan for you to follow. The process is very much driven by what you, the customer, want. Individuals and families who have worked with Mark report gaining skills that can be used the rest of their lives.
Originally from New Jersey, trips to the ocean with his family were a favorite event for Mark as a youngster. Nowadays, if he has a free hour, you may find him humming along to his favorite music (he'd love to hear yours), taking a walk around town, or both; he likes to discuss how people spend their free time. But what he likes best is helping people help themselves through difficult challenges or circumstances and grow from their success.
