Hello! If you struggle with thoughts that keep "recycling" and emotions (or emotional numbness) that keep you stuck in old patterns and unsatisfying relationships, you are not alone. Most of us have never learned how to deal with painful, insistent thoughts, memories and feelings. I have over 17 years of experience helping my clients learn and integrate ways to move beyond depression, anxiety, anger, shame, and trauma. You bring your longings, and I bring deep respect for your experience and values, as well as abiding hope (and a touch of humor). Together, we open a path to a life full of meaning and fulfilling relationships.

Everyone has challenges in life and sometimes having the support of a therapist can provide extra support, knowledge, and tools that can help ease the struggle. I think every person and every family is their own expert and I would like to partner with you to share what I've learned about approaching problems in ways that can feel more tolerable. Collaborating (with permission) with medical, school, community, family, and other supports ideally provides information and wisdom to support a child and family through change or challenge.

In the heart of every problem lies its solution. We spend enormous amounts of time and energy searching for answers outside ourselves, when the answers lie within. Heartwork is a creative process, which teaches one to find fundamental solutions to both everyday problems and the more difficult life questions, transforming "problems" into doorways to compassion, insight and joy. My award-winning book, "Heartwork: How To Get What You Really, REALLY Want" gives one my orientation and the primary tools for working through one's issues. The e-book version can be downloaded at my website: www.awakentheheart.org.

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.

You will find me to be caring, direct and sensitive, and very client centered. I have a strong listening skill, empathy towards one’s pain, and an uplifting spirit that sets me apart from other counselors.

There are many complexities that can make the therapy processes overwhelming. This can be a challenge to navigate, and my goal as a therapist is to help you through authenticity and open communication/dialogue. Whether you're looking for processing, skills work, evaluations, problem-solving for everyday stress, or are experiencing major life events, trauma or any combination, we can explore your goals collaboratively. I believe in utilizing an integrative, client-centered approach that's informed through elements of systems theory, anti-oppressive theory, gender theory, intersectional feminism, and trauma-informed care.

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.

Life can hand us painful, unexpected or challenging experiences. We often end up going through the motions of day to day life until we feel stuck, anxious, exhausted and even unable to function. I believe that one of the most courageous things we can do is try to more deeply understand ourselves. Making the decision to begin therapy can be a daunting one! It can be scary to entrust someone with the details of your life, and even more so, to face things that can be easier to avoid. Creating lasting change often requires addressing burdens we carry and patterns we have developed and I am here to be alongside you in that journey.

Perhaps you're going through a transition or quarter life crisis and trying to cope with hard things that have happened in your life. You have tried everything you can think of to try to feel better and it is just not working. Are you overwhelmed and feeling stuck? Does your mind race? Are anxiety and sadness causing you to lose sleep and feel unmotivated? You may be saying to yourself "something has to change" but feel unsure of what to do. Some days you find it hard to function. Your relationships may suffer. And you long for healthier ways to cope with life.

Are you grappling with themes of meaning and purpose? Feeling defined by your past, destined to repeat the same unfulfilling cycles for the unforeseeable future? Maybe it feels like the issue is your career, your relationship, or the city you’re living in. You may also be thinking that if you just lose some weight, get more sleep, make a little more money, or find some adventure, surely then you’d be happy. The truth is that you are not doomed to this kind of unending disconnection and dissatisfaction, nor are you destined to perpetuate the cycles of generations before you.

Are you struggling with everyday life stressors? Perhaps you have anxiety, depression, or just not feeling like your usual self. Do you have racing thoughts, loss of sleep, lack of motivation? Maybe you are telling yourself "life has been more overwhelming than usual, I just want things to be different." You might say you are ok but you feel like you are wearing a mask, and you have a hard time functioning. Are your relationships suffering? Are you feeling like you don't want to get out of bed or go to work? Lost that spiritual connection? Maybe, you want to learn healthier ways to cope. Today you take back your life!

Hello, I’ve been a counselor for much of my adult life. It took a while for me to realize that counseling was my true passion. I learned a lot about how it feels to know that something is off. I’ve never forgotten how it felt to be struggling to figure myself out. I know that it is not easy to take that first step to seek therapy. I admire and honor those people who decide that things can be better and that they are worth the effort. We can work together to make that effort worthwhile.

We all have thoughts about who we want to be or things in our lives that we want to be different. Often times though, past events or current factors leave us feeling stuck and struggling to turn our thoughts into action. My primary goal is to provide you an environment of safety, the opportunity to lighten the weight you carry and to support and guide you in your journey to optimal wellbeing.

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.
