Therapy, at its core is about self-discovery. Through a process of curious and compassionate inquiry into the truth of our situation, we gain insights that open space to unencumber ourselves. Often, what we had initially seen as problems can dissolve altogether. I like working with people whose lives have reached an impasse where they need to generate new options to untangle their dilemma. What we need to realize is that the predicament is, ultimately, the doorway to a greater understanding and fulfillment of our lives, both inner and outer. (I now have the capacity to do insurance-based secure video sessions online.)

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 14 years, I have collaborated with individuals and their supports to regain control from the devastating impact of trauma, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, grief, low self-esteem and transitional issues.

To me, psychotherapy is a conversation people have because they are suffering from something and because they want their lives to be better in some way. I work with people who are interested in improving their relationships with their partner or family, with parents, with children, or with their peers. I work with people who want to be more effective at work or at school, or in their creative pursuits. And I work with people who struggle with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, grief and loss, loneliness, and emotional, physical, and sexual trauma.

I am a Jungian-oriented psychoanalyst in Western NY. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy can help get to the root of your problems instead of creating temporary fixes. We will use dreams, archetypes and synchronicities in your life to help create your own unique path toward healing. If you have made your life decisions based on what others want for you, that may have lead you astray from your own innate purpose in the world. When we become awakened to this insight, change becomes possible and your symptoms begin to subside.

People often ask me how therapy works. There is no absolute answer. I will tell you that I believe there is tremendous power in the act of speaking our truths aloud. Therein lies the rub – our truths so often fill us with shame, terror, guilt, self-disgust … all the things we work so hard to push down and ignore. How in the world are we supposed to speak them out loud? That is where I come in. I provide a compassionate and non-judgmental space, a container for long suppressed, hard to express suffering to reveal itself. You tell your story and my listening helps take the sting out of it.

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.
