The reality is that life places obstacles in our way, but how we manage and cope with them affects their impact on our mental and physical health. Sometimes, the scale between struggling and coping tips towards struggling and we need support.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I provide psychotherapy or psycho-educational therapy for those with or without ADHD, serving individuals, couples and families seeking treatment. People get tired of feeling frustrated and stuck in ways difficult to explain, yet can feel motivated by an empathic approach that helps develop ways to support cognitive, emotional and behavioral factors that impact their decisions. When stress becomes easier to manage, the hope for a more balanced and manageable life can begin to materialize.

In helping children, teens, and their families, I employ a combination of compassion, creativity, understanding, and humor with clinically proven treatment methods. During my 15+ years of experience I have found that a good collaborative therapeutic relationship combined with skill-based strategies and techniques results in positive and lasting changes. I typically begin treatment with a thorough assessment and treatment plan. Treatment incorporates both parent and child interventions. I routinely communicate with pediatricians, teachers and school personnel to assist in resolving the issues of children and teens, with parental permission.

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.

I believe in working cooperatively with people to help them achieve balance, personal growth, and to reach their personal goals. Many people feel isolated and their anxiety or depression prevent them from being their best self. We all have the ability to learn, grow and reach our highest potential, and we cannot do it alone. Together we can identify strengths, work through challenges, and develop the skills to achieve a higher level of peace and contentment.

There is no set age in which transitions and meaningful events start happening in one's life, and it is my job to be there to support each person throughout these difficult transitions. Everyone has experienced a crisis before, and it means something different to each individual. It is important to be able to encourage a thought process to allow each person to explore their experiences and how to cope with them in a healthy way. Sometimes people are unsure of what their exact presenting problem is, but they just know they need someone to help them navigate it.

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.
