I use various therapeutic modalities; primarily CBT, DBT and motivational interviewing to help clients learn and practice skills to cope with their everyday stress.
I look forward to hearing how I can assist you in finding real solutions to the challenges you are facing. If you are feeling stressed, down or a bit disconnected from your emotions please know therapy can help. I work with clients to identify what issues they are seeking to address while working together to implement change. I have over 8 years of experience helping adults, adolescents and families learn techniques to help manage a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, as well as life challenges such as relationship dynamics, parent-child conflict, professional and academic stress.

I'm trained in EMDR, CBT, DBT , and SFBT.
It takes immense courage to embrace therapy; you should be proud of taking this step. There are as many reasons to seek help as there are challenges in life. Perhaps you are noticing recurring tension, pain, or unpleasant sensations in your body? Or are you functioning well at work, but noticing that it’s difficult to connect to a deeper sense of belonging and meaning? Do traumatic memories keep lingering at the surface despite your efforts to put them behind you? Have you already sought help, spent many sessions venting about your worries and traumas, but wound up more frustrated and triggered than you were before?

Through working with these groups, I've learned to utilize a number of modalities such as CBT, MI, DBT , ABA, etc.
Let me tell you a secret, therapy is not a one size fits all type of thing! I wish it were as it would make life so much easier, but the fact is every person is different and requires sessions catered to their own unique backgrounds, environments, and goals. As a psychotherapist, my aim is to work with you on getting to wherever you want to be in life, so I invite you to reach out if you are interested in taking a bumpy ride through the road of self-discovery.

I've been honored to guide others through their process by using different therapeutic approaches, such as, DBT , CBT, Trauma-Focused, and more.
We often forget we are human. We experience various emotions linked to powerlessness and loss of control. It can be extremely difficult navigating these emotions alone and feeling stuck not knowing what steps to take. Words can become inaccessible but that doesn't last for long. Warm welcome, I'm Pourcher and I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I'm a Bronx, NY, native with a passion for holding space for others.

Because we do our best when we live our lives on purpose, my educational and personal pursuits have focused on mindfulness modalities; Hakomi, body-centered psychotherapy, EMDR, Internal Family Systems and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
Therapy is about exploring where you are and where you want to go. It's about envisioning the life you want and understanding what's holding you back. Sometimes we get so caught up in our stories, we forget that we can change. Yet we are so resilient! I love helping people befriend themselves and celebrate all of who they are. Together we can face your most trying moments with grace and integrity. We can identify obstacles, and explore practical solutions. I value giving you the support and perspective you need to feel grounded and whole.

What type of Ithaca 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 Ithaca?
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.
