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.

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.

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.

For change to continue, this awareness needs to inspire the willingness to leave unhelpful beliefs and actions behind and build new strengths and supports.

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.

A major life change may be impacting you more than you thought, feelings of depression and loneliness are becoming unmanageable. Stress may be overwhelming and impacting many areas of your life.

Feeling emotions is one of the greatest, yet challenging abilities we as humans have. Trying to master them when the chaos of life seems more chaotic can be overwhelming. This can be especially true when you are caring for an ailing loved one and are struggling to attend to your own needs. You may feel that you are unable to turn your thoughts off which can cause you to feel that your sensations are heightened. Maybe you feel empty or numb. You may wonder why you are feeling this way and may continuously over analyze this body-mind process. You're probably feeling stuck with where you are in life, and the path ahead looks fuzzy.

Families provide our first and often most important experiences with social connection. As children we pick up ways of interacting based on our relationships with those around us. In this way, I believe that every family member has a significant impact on each other and that many of our individual challenges can be traced back to our experiences within the family structure. When children don’t have the coping and interpersonal communication skills to navigate conflict it can result in emotional outbursts, avoidance, or increased anxiety/depression. If left untreated this can lead to difficulty in daily functioning as an adult.

Engaging in therapy is a vulnerable and sometimes scary process. I specialize in working with couples either in a committed relationship or marriage. Working on relationships I often find the thing that brings couples together initially, gets lost after the "honeymoon" period is over. It is easy to get complacent with all of life's stressors. Being a strength-based therapist, I believe that anything is possible if both people are willing to work. And to be honest, therapy is work! I view my clients as the experts in their life and work together with them to create positive change.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Rochester Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Rochester.
