When things are difficult, it can isolate us, drain our emotional reserves, and limit our ability to look at things in new ways. I work to help clients appreciate the depth of their experience, and support them toward personal strength and healthier relationships. My style is open, collaborative, direct, and supportive. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years in private practice. I also served as adjunct faculty at the University of Rochester's Counseling Center for many years.

Change can be difficult - but with support it becomes possible. You might be struggling with difficult thoughts like "what if my family never accepts my life choices - will they ever accept me?" Perhaps you're battling indecisiveness and fear about whether you're "good enough" to succeed, preventing you from reaching your aspirations and goals? Or maybe you feel confident and successful at times, but at other moments as if your shield for taking on the world is paper-thin? I utilize methods including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help resolve these concerns.

I trust that change happens in relationships, whether it's with a therapist, a partner, or family members. I strive to create a safe environment for you and your loved ones so that you can share your most intimate thoughts and feelings, without fear of judgement. Those in my care will benefit from a relational approach in which I temper connection and compassion with openness, transparency, and honesty.

When you find someone you can work well with, therapy is an amazing process. Whether I'm that person for you shouldn't be too difficult to determine, but we do need to at least speak on the phone, and perhaps meet a few times. I know taking that next step can be a little anxiety provoking.

Surviving a painful event may feel like a life sentence. You may feel broken and battered, like it has permanently left scar tissue on your soul. People have the amazing ability to heal even the deepest of wounds. You may experience change that feels drastic and out of control. You may feel shaken to your core, wondering how to glue the pieces back together again. Do you ever find that you keep trying a particular way to solve a problem, only to experience mounting frustration and fear that what used to be effective is no longer working?

It provides a springboard into a positive and fulfilling life. Teaming with my clients, I reach to solve current and/or long-standing challenges. Having overcome an eating disorder decades ago, I know what being the client is like. I am not a know-it-all, but rather a guide. Without question, we all have the capacity to change our lives!

I am a supportive and kink-affirming therapist and my goal is to help couples address concerns with their communication, create intimacy and connection, reignite chemistry and yes, provide sex education, because life should be pleasure-filled. I've helped countless clients become comfortable within their own skin: learning how to ask for what they want to get their needs met both in life and the bedroom too. I am an LCSW-R and I specialize in both couples counseling, behavioral intervention and sex therapy. There is nothing taboo or off limits when it comes to therapy: I want you to bring your WHOLE self when meeting with me.

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.
