Have you ever found yourself saying, "I'm crazy for feeling this way, no one else acts like this."? If so, I assure you that you are not crazy nor are you alone. In fact, you are probably coping the best way you know how. It is my professional experience that no emotional issue is too complex to heal. For 20 years, I have collaborated with individuals and their supports to regain control from the devastating impact of trauma, depression, anxiety, grief , low self-esteem and transitional issues.

Over the past 30 years, I have worked with people struggling with a variety of distressing issues ranging from grief , substance abuse, family members impacted by substance abuse, struggles with mood disorders, men's issues and trauma. These issues are pages of our life story. Many times people feel isolated; the idea of sharing their story with a "stranger" feels too daunting, too personal. I find most clients, in the end, desire to feel more comfortable in their own skin. Identifying behavior patterns and ways we think and feel about ourselves is a huge first step toward making meaningful change.

I have provided psychotherapy to adults experiencing depression, anxiety, grief / loss , family difficulties, and academic struggles, and prefer to take a collaborative approach specific to any concerns that you might have.
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.

I work with adolescents, college students and adults on an individual basis. I specialize in the areas of; stress, anxiety, depression, grief / loss and life transitions. If you have been concerned about an issue that has not improved over a period of time, counseling can be an opportunity for change. Often times, clients will tell me how beneficial it is to talk with an objective person, who is separate from their friends and family. Counseling is an opportunity for you to express yourself, your thoughts and feelings within a safe setting and without judgement.

I feel passionate about working with individuals who are experiencing anxiety, stress management, grief , family or relational issues, and dealing with the impact of negative life experiences.
Life can be challenging. Surviving life’s difficult challenges is a victory, but we are often left feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed and even self-critical. I am a firm believer that we are all doing the best that we can, but as we continue to manage ongoing stressors, we sometimes get stuck. Therapy can be a space to explore those feelings and seek new ways to find balance and healing.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Rochester grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Rochester.
