I provide individual psychotherapy to adults age 21 and over. My interests and expertise center around enhancing self-awareness, self-regard, confidence, and assertiveness; exploring and directly experiencing difficult or painful feelings, and increasing the capacity to accept, understand, and work them through; improving troubled relationships, including fears about, and barriers to, deeper emotional closeness; clarifying what one most fundamentally values and wants in life, and creates and finds meaning; working with loss, grief, and mourning; and managing stress and anxiety, drawing on mindfulness approaches when appropriate.

It can be a hard decision to make to decide that you need to talk with someone, and be just as daunting to actually make that first appointment. You want someone who will be understanding and insightful, as well as challenging. You want someone who will be empathic and knowledgeable, with whom you can feel comfortable to talk, and know that you're speaking in confidence. I work with a wide range of challenges, including: Tension and stress, depression and mood disorders, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, life changes, difficulties coping, panic, phobia, sleep problems, social phobia, and family stressors.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who graduated from Nazareth College with my master's in social work in 2013. I have served in the human service field for 10+ years in a number of different settings from schools to hospitals and public non-for-profit agencies.  In 2020 I became certified in Perinatal Mental Health. During my own motherhood journey, I felt pulled to find a way to support other moms in their journey. Motherhood is complex and complicated, and women deserve to feel like there is someone in their corner.

Reaching out for support can be hard, but you are not alone. Everyone has experienced their own life journey which can involve grief/loss, relational ruptures, parenting struggles or trauma. Sometimes this journey can leave adults in a place where it is hard to find the motivation to complete everyday tasks, manage life stress or have patience with our loved ones. This can be true for children too, which may cause them to struggle in school, have emotional outbursts or display signs of anxiety. No matter what is bringing you, your child, or family to this moment in time, I am honored to be a part of your journey.

As a clinical psychologist specializing in relationship difficulties, I have worked with many individuals who struggle with conflict in their intimate relationships, experience fears about closeness or intimacy, feel anxiety about relating to others, and those who have trouble feeling generally satisfied in their relationships. I believe that dissatisfying relationships contribute to emotional stress and pain, and that promoting stronger, healthier relationships can lead to people experiencing happier and more productive lives. I work with individuals to explore these struggles and develop understanding or insight about their patterns in relationships, with the ultimate goal of helping people have a different experience in their current relationships.

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.
