Throughout his 37 years of experience, Dr. Ferguson has had a broad range of experience in the field of clinical social work. This has encompassed work in intensive psychiatric hospital units, the position of Clinical Supervisor at a residential psychiatric facility, therapy and consultation for a college prep boarding school, and individual and couples therapy. He has considerable experience working with addictions, anxiety, depression, personality disorders, trauma – including sexual assault – eating disorders, and the many-faceted issues facing the LGBTQ+ community.

Nota bene: In light of the recent escalation of attention to racial issues throughout our country, I would like to express my commitment to working with clients in a way that takes into consideration the particulars and complexities of their identities. I am aggrieved by the anger and mistrust that has developed as a result of systemic oppression of minorities and am firmly committed to shedding light on the impact that these issues have on mental health.
