About

If you are reading this I imagine you are struggling right now. You might be feeling anxious or depressed. Or maybe you're having difficulty communicating or resolving conflict with your significant other. Trying to find the "right" therapist can be an overwhelming task. I am told I am easy to talk to, down to earth and bring my authentic self to sessions. Couples have told me that EFT (emotionally focused therapy) saved their relationship, where other therapies had failed. I encourage you to contact me for a free 10-15 minute phone consultation to learn if we are a good fit.
My style is warm, relational and I focus on your strengths. I provide individual, couples and family therapy. I am also fond of working with adolescents and young adults. I am a good listener, but I am also interactive, offer feedback, coach and direct new ways of interacting. I partner with you to achieve your therapeutic goals.
I am one of the few therapists in Rochester who has extensive training as an EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) therapist. EFT is considered one of the most empirically validated forms of couples therapy. Through EFT I help individuals and couples decrease conflict, improve communication, and strengthen relationships with others.
