I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who has worked with youths, adults, the elderly, veterans , church groups, and families as they struggled with conflicts, life transitions, mental health, and substance use related issues.
On life’s journey we are constantly growing and developing. Whether young or old, life is a journey that usually entail efforts of trying to understand divine will. We often question our purpose in life, especially during challenging times. To keep it real, in many cultures/communities, such as the African American (Black) community, we might have been taught to either “pray” about our situations, issues, and emotions or “suck it up and keep it moving.” This can create negative energies such as anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, and other mental health issues that need to be addressed in a healthy manner.

I have 12 years experience working with anxiety, depression and PTSD in women and veterans .
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.

My greatest joy as a therapist is helping people find the courage to speak the unspeakable and “grow stronger in the broken places” following childhood, adulthood, and/or military /combat-related traumas. I know both the struggle of moving forward from a lifetime of traumas and the indescribable gifts of learning to trust others again, learning the joys of feeling attached and connected to others, and learning that you can thrive after incredibly distressing experiences. I believe that you are worthy of and have the capacity for such growth.

I specialize in working with trauma survivors, PTSD, veterans , anxiety, depression, relationships, adjustment issues, and communication issues.
Have you been wondering why life or relationships just do not seem to be working out the way you'd like them to? Are you feeling overly stressed, too often? These, and other struggles too, are what many of my clients feel when seeking therapy. We are all part of a larger system in which we influence and are influenced by our surroundings. This can lead to happiness, and at times, distress. Throughout our sessions, I will work with you to process through struggles within the context of your larger system and to implement lasting changes to prevent struggles from repeating.

I have spent the last 14 years working with young adults, college students, and veterans /first responders facing major trauma, grief, depression, and anxiety.
The difficulties of life grip us in ways both obvious and unseen. Life has a way of happening at inconvenient times and counseling can assist in navigating the emotional difficulties and consequences with someone who is non-judgmental and supportive. I strive to view the world through your lens while helping you recognize your strengths and build resiliency through proven techniques so that you can lead a successful and comfortable life. I hope to have the opportunity to support you through this difficult time.

Only offering Friday afternoon/Saturday appointments at this time. Life can feel overwhelming and confusing when we are met with expectations that do not align with authentic self. I believe positive and effective change can happen once we become more confident and empowered within ourselves. I work with individuals to become more empowered to take charge within their life in order to feel connected with their authentic self and meet future goals. I have experience working with complex trauma, specifically childhood trauma, sexual trauma, and issues around attachment within the family system.

I have been working with individuals and couples and walking with them on their journey to healing for over 12 years. Meeting people where they are, listening to their goals, and building upon their strengths and life experience is the most important part of this work. Together, we can rediscover your strengths and explore how you prefer to see yourself moving forward.

I believe that everyone has a natural inclination toward positive growth and development, but that life's challenges can block forward movement. These challenges can take the form of depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, transitions, anger, and difficult relationships. I provide a comfortable, supportive, and accepting environment in which to explore obstacles and strengths in order to make positive change. I have experience working with people adjusting to serious medical conditions, brain injury, physical disabilities, and those adjusting to pregnancy, raising children, and child loss.

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.

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.
