Psychotherapy is at its best when a client and therapist work as a collaborative team. Together with my clients, I work to create an environment that facilitates an understanding not only of their struggles, but also of their strengths as they move toward their goals. My approach is both direct and open, and compassionate and flexible. I have an appreciation of the whole person in the context of their relationships, and bring these ideas to my work. Each client is unique and I strive to provide a therapy experience that is designed for the unique qualities and situation that each person brings.

Feeling stuck? Wishing for change? Fear of the future? We go through struggles that test our ability to find joy and experience pleasure. It is often our relationships with friends, family and especially our partners that take the brunt of these taxing times. It is common that our intimate relationships get tagged as the reason for our hurt and pain or are the most negatively impacted. Blame can drive a wedge and damage intimacy. Ironically, it is within our intimate relationships that we find the majority of our most meaningful experiences. Experiences that result in feeling that joy and pleasure we so desperately desire.

You want to live more freely, more wholly, more in touch with who you really are. You want to find your way to wholeness and freedom. You may be looking to share and explore things that have never felt safe to open up before. You may have tried and benefited from other kinds of therapy, and are interested now in treatment that is focused on real, embodied experience now, in the present, rather than endlessly re-telling the same stories. You may have realized how the past has affected you, and you would rather define yourself than being bound by it. You are ready above all to reclaim your own innate goodness, wholeness, and strength.

Imagine having everything you need to be the "best" you, but not knowing how to fully access it. This word "resilience" has become such a popular term and it can be amazing to help us cope with life, if we know how it truly works and how to access it. I specialize in youth and adult anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma and much more. Although most of these issues can cause problems in daily life. These problems are manageable and I am willing to help you create the narrative of your best self.

A Licensed Social Worker with 13 years of experience in mental health counseling, crisis management and mental health assessments.

I use a generalist practice approach, while incorporating solution focused therapy, client-centered therapy, cognitive behavior therapy and spiritual therapy. I believe, at least for most people, a deep-seated sense of meaning and purpose in life, together with a sense of belonging, is of foundational importance to psychological well-being and wholeness.

I work with individuals, couples, and families who are experiencing changes and life transitions. Coming from a systemic background, I encourage those with whom I work to examine how these changes will impact the relationships they have with others as well as themselves. These transitions, while they may seem difficult at the time, are opportunities for growth. I also believe that lasting happiness in our relationships comes from focusing on enhancement and prevention as opposed to waiting for a problem to arise before one seeks help.

It's vitally important to find someone you can trust, who 'gets' you; someone who respects your values, the meaning of your most important relationships, and helps you understand the context of the problems you face. You also want a therapist who will be straightforward with you about your role in problems, and what steps you need to take. You want a person with solid credentials and experience, yet who is open and willing to listen, and who will consider a variety of treatment options with you. You need someone who is going to help you be curious about yourself, and explore what a better quality of life means to you.

Thank you for taking time to read by profile. For the last 13 years I have worked in an outpatient mental health setting meeting with adults dealing with a wide range of mental health symptoms using a variety of interventions. I am a licensed mental health counselor, a nationally certified counselor, and a CASAC (certified alcohol and substance abuse counselor). I know there are times when everyday life can be challenging and overwhelming. Sometimes we need someone to listen and hear what we have to say in a caring, non-judgmental way.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Rochester?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
