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.

If you’re a teenager or a parent of a teenager, it goes without saying that your relationship with each other is far from perfect. You think, “I can’t trust them,” or “Why don’t they understand my side of this situation?” Maybe you’ve even mustered up the courage to talk with each other about the problem; but what you’d hoped would be a productive, heart-felt conversation resulted only in yelling, tears, or both. You need a space where you can express your thoughts and feelings with support from a caring professional who’s trained to treat mental health disorders as well as the day-to-day challenges faced by teens and families.

Relationships are blessings in our lives but often a source of deep pain. I see so many children, families, and couples distressed with life: unable to experience the blessings; and unable to find peace and satisfaction. In those situations, communication patterns are often marked with defensiveness, criticism, and sometimes even contempt. Sometimes families and couples have stopped talking altogether, unable to find the caring and understanding that once filled their relationships. My practice specializes in Couples/Family relationships and communication challenges - helping folks learn to listen, understand, and love.

The journey of therapy should be something you are drawn toward, not something you have to convince yourself to do. I want my clients to look forward to coming to their sessions, especially when what we're working through is tough. Therapy is a serious and powerful undertaking, but it doesn't have to be ominous. I think being down-to-earth and as lighthearted as possible about the institution of therapy helps to make it feel more accessible and fight any stigma attached to it. I look forward to working with you, you and your partner, or your family!

As your therapist, I will assist you in discovering or uncovering yourself. This might mean realizing some difficult truths about your personality and behavior patterns, tapping into your strengths, and identifying what coping skills work for you. Or, it might mean working through emotional pain, trauma, or barriers that prevent you from being your best self. In my years of experience, I have found that once a person’s authentic identity has been discovered through therapy, clients can accept who they are, confidently speak up for themselves and understand themselves with greater perspective.

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.
