We are living in a difficult & confusing time. Anxiety from being alone or staying in place can make you feel crazy or see things in our relationships that concern us. Do you feel like you need to make some changes with your life & relationships? Many factors can contribute and affect our lives that we may not realize. When we make changes to ourselves it affects those around us. Identifying these factors can help bring clarity to you & your family and develop strength for all involved. Changes and transitions in life can be tough & can cause depression, anxiety and questions. Working through this can help with overall recovery.

The decision to begin therapy can be an isolating and anxious time, especially in these current crazy times that seem to have no end. Am I the only one who feels this way? These feelings may even at times shut you down. You may be experiencing losses and transitions of all kinds, or have weight and eating concerns, gambling concerns, relationship problems or who just want career counseling. We can explore these together. I work with men, women, and adolescents of diverse backgrounds, who might not believe that counseling can be sensitive to their needs. We can either meet in person or online.

**During this time I am still working with patients through phone and zoom/FaceTime sessions** My therapeutic approach is to make each person I work with feel comfortable and safe. Engagement and the therapeutic relationship is everything. I hope to help the people I work with identify their goals and develop a plan to make them happen. Often this means facing shame, vulnerability, and fear. However, with my support and some courage we can help you take the necessary first steps to recovery.

How can you find the therapist that's right for you? You might consider calling a few people to see if you connect well on the phone. I'd be glad to talk with you, even meet briefly in person if that would help you make a decision. In the meantime, here are a few things that you might want to know about me as they have influenced the way I do therapy.

Over thirty years of experience partnering with clients of all ages, from a wide variety of backgrounds, has confirmed for me each person has within themselves the resources and ability to become the person they wish to be and to improve their satisfaction in life. As a therapist I partner with each client helping them to identify patterns of thought and behavior that are no longer effective and guide them in discovering new, more rewarding ways of relating and connecting with others. I work collaboratively with clients to solve problems, connect with strengths, and reach their personal and professional goals.

Taking the first steps towards emotional recovery and wellness are the most courageous ones you can take. Everyone has a different perspective on what emotional wellness looks like. No matter the circumstances, everyone is deserving of making positive changes without feeling hurried. I hope to be a part of your journey of identifying and foster those personal strengths that have provided you with the resilience to keep you moving forward. This will you help you develop the safety, trust, self-compassion, and hope to begin to heal.

I've worked in the mental health field since 2000 with various populations (individuals, couples and families), however, my specialties include men's studies, pornography/sexual addiction, relationship health for married couples & EMDR. I especially find men experience challenges in life and lack the means or opportunities to be supported, validated heard. I strive to be practical and direct, yet effective in fostering change. Whether guiding couples in marriage prep or in marital strain, I develop understanding of relationships, creating an open, honest and safe communication style which fosters intimacy through challenges.

Highly sensitive hearts, introverts, deep feelers, the socially anxious, and those with emotionally intense personalities are welcome here. You feel ALL the feels. All the time. Sometimes your emotions seem so powerful that you feel out of control or that it is unbearable. You form strong attachments to people, pets, places, and things but struggle with stability and security in your relationships. You are fed up with being told that you are 'too emotional', 'too needy', 'too clingy', or 'too sensitive'. Maybe you use alcohol, drugs, food, or suicidal thoughts to cope with your overwhelming emotions.

Have you been wondering why life or relationships just do not seem to be working out the way you'd like them to? Are you feeling overly stressed, too often? These, and other struggles too, are what many of my clients feel when seeking therapy. We are all part of a larger system in which we influence and are influenced by our surroundings. This can lead to happiness, and at times, distress. Throughout our sessions, I will work with you to process through struggles within the context of your larger system and to implement lasting changes to prevent struggles from repeating.

My ideal client is an individual who either has been contemplating change or is ready to make changes in their life and would like to have someone objective to talk with. I am open minded and love to learn from my clients. I think that continuing education is vital and that mental health is as important as physical health. My ideal client would be someone who would take what they think is beneficial from our session and practice it in their everyday life. Then we would discuss in future sessions how the practice went and what needs to be adjusted-if anything!

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Rochester using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Rochester are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Rochester

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Rochester you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Rochester and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Rochester or family therapy in Rochester.
