Thank you for viewing my profile.I am Raymond C. Zito,LCSW,SAP.I am highly experienced in providing psychotherapeutic services  to individuals, groups and families.I have served in the role of teacher, supervisor and practicing psychotherapist. I would like to see myself as intelligent, kind and direct in my treatment approach.I blend humor and wit with a strong theoretical background. I am especially helpful to couples in distress and to people struggling with crippling anxiety.

I utilize my training, experience and intuition to evaluate the presenting issues and develop a plan for treatment. A free telephone consultation is set up to see if a mutually satisfying therapeutic relationship is possible.

I have had significant experience as a practicing jazz saxophonist. I have been helpful to the issues of the creative personality. I work equally well with both individuals and couples. I have also been able to connect well with teens of both sexes.I am  a DOT certified Substance Abuse Professional.
