I am Dr. LaVern Cole-Ristuccia. I received my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Nova-Southeastern University (NSU). I am a NY State Licensed Psychologist and have been in the field for over 20 years. I completed my internship at the University of Rochester Department of Psychiatry in 1990. I specialize in working with Adolescents, Adults, Couples & Families. I am experienced in treating depression, anxiety, marital/relationship issues, divorce, sexual dysfunction, anger management & parenting strategies. I do a great deal of work with blended families. Therapy is goal oriented/insight oriented, utilizing a cognitive-behavioral approach with a psycho-educational emphasis.

I am a member of American Psychological Association, NY State Psychological Association, & Genesee Valley Psychological Association. I do a great deal of work with divorce, visitation, & custody/psychological evaluations. I am a consulting psychologist for the Montessori School in the Rochester/ Canandaigua areas.

My practice is located in Linden Oaks Office Park, centrally located for all areas of Rochester on the ground floor of a handicapped accessible building. I have email, cell phone availability and a 24 hour paging service in case of an emergency. Call 585.385.1950 to schedule an appointment.
