My passion is inspiring people to maximize their life potential by helping them release the ties that are binding them to unhappiness and suffering. The heart of counseling is not to give advice or to fix, the heart of counseling is to create the natural conditions for growth wherein the client (that's you!) evolves beyond the problems they are experiencing and discovers the depths of their own personal power that they can bring to any life challenge.

I am a psychotherapist specializing in growth-oriented counseling with adults & couples. My clients typically work to increase emotional awareness of their present choices or patterns which lead to various forms of distress. This pain often causes significant disruption in their social, work, physical lives or intimate relationships. Early childhood experiences influence how we all experience our lives today. Insights and associations during talk therapy often bring previously unseen options to light that lead to healthier choices and decreased stress and pain. These sessions take place weekly over the course of many months or more to provide the foundation of lasting growth.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Rochester, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Rochester listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer HIPAA tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Rochester are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Rochester

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Rochester you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Rochester and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Rochester or family therapy in Rochester.
