Mental Health Challenges and Trauma can change every aspect of our life and we may wonder will there EVER be a "normal" life for ME again? The answer is YES! Although things will be different, with commitment and the willingness to move THROUGH the challenges, there is LIFE & HEALING. Mental Health and Trauma are both taboo words in our society and are often stigmatized by our families, our friends, and most unfortunately even by ourselves. Although an estimated 26% of Americans ages 18 and up -- 1 in 4 adults--live with a diagnosable mental health issue in a given year. YES, you read that correctly; 1 in 4 adults!

Healing begins to take place when we have a space to truly feel heard, understood, and seen. I seek to create this space where you feel safe to be you. Healing is a not a linear, one-size-fits-all experience, and I welcome multiple perspectives. I work with individuals and couples on a variety of topics including relationship difficulties, trauma, overwhelming thoughts & emotions, low self-esteem, and life transitions. I enjoy being emotionally present and journeying with people to discover their unique way to healing their lives and living a more joyful life.

My counseling approach is Person-Centered, focusing on building a therapeutic relationship by being warm, genuine, and understanding. I also adhere to many aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and seeking development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems. I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) which is a comprehensive, evidence-based treatment for borderline personality disorder and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy as a treatment for Post Traumatic Stress.

Life is fast paced and often overwhelming. We are expected to keep up with our busy lives, overlook our emotions and move through our daily obligations. Often, we do this without examining what is truly important to us. This may leave us feeling trapped or uncertain how to improve our situation. I offer a support to truly become aware of our needs and how to lead with self-energy.

Have you found yourself in a place where you have followed all of the rules, done the things that you were taught to do, and found yourself in the reality of not feeling happy or fulfilled? Have you strived for the best and achieved a family, home, job—and yet there is still something that is not good enough? You have made the decision to begin looking into these discrepancies, and that little nudge is your inner knowing that something is off. You’re ready to listen to your needs, wants, and desires but putting them into action is daunting. I believe that by getting quiet and tapping into our inner wisdom, healing and growth occur.

Sometimes we just need a little help figuring out life's challenges-----help sorting out how to make some of "those" big decisions...or how to pick up the pieces after a fallout, breakup or death of a loved one. Maybe drugs and alcohol have taken over you and the lifestyle you once knew; recovery may be a frightening thing to explore. Sometimes we are caught up in someone else's mess; a loved one with a substance abuse, alcohol or gambling problem. Finances may be causing conflict with others and within ourselves.Sometimes we need help because someone /something may be needing more

Your relationship is hurting. You are hurting. You’re not happy and you’re not sure where things went wrong, but the relationship doesn’t feel like it used to. What happened to the fun, the connection, the passion, the intimacy and the love? You’ve tried to fix things, but you and the relationship need help. You’ve gone through hard and traumatic experiences in your life. You’ve tried and tried to move on, to push through – to not let it affect you, but it feels like you’re still fighting each day to not let it drag you down. You’re in the right place for hope and to point your life and your relationships in a new better direction.

I help people who are stuck become free so they can get back in making progress in the journey of their lives. I take a non-pathologic approach because focusing upon personal dysfunction is de- motivating. Deep and lasting change, on the other hand, comes from experiencing profound emotional encounters that are either come from encounter aspects of ourselves and integrating them or in guided interactions with those we are emotionally attached to. I seek to facilitate acceptance of aspects of self, becoming clear of and being guided by one's values and in growing in the ability to be emotionally accessible and emotionally responsive

Therapy is an interactive journey of gaining insights into one's patterns of thinking and behavior. It is necessary to resolve issues from the past and understand how the past or past traumas have shaped your life. These insights can then help you develop new, healthy coping skills. The focus of therapy is to offer hope, clarity, healing and change through a strong therapeutic relationship. I am a psychologist who will be actively involved in helping you achieve your goals and life aspirations. I am excited about working with people who are ready for lifelong positive change!

I have faith in the idea that people can, and do change. In my experience, change is not always a linear process. Often, when trying to change a situation or behavior, people fall short or stumble. Being able to truly evaluate an individual's strengths and building upon those, allows for the needed empowerment to overcome our barriers. I am passionate about helping individuals to overcome various behavioral health concerns. Whether you are facing addiction, anxiety, anger issues, grief, stress, depression or trauma, I use a strengths based approach, coupled with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to build upon your inherit resiliency to affect change.

What type of Rochester mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Rochester?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
