We are living in a difficult & confusing time. Anxiety from being alone or staying in place can make you feel crazy or see things in our relationships that concern us. Do you feel like you need to make some changes with your life & relationships? Many factors can contribute and affect our lives that we may not realize. When we make changes to ourselves it affects those around us. Identifying these factors can help bring clarity to you & your family and develop strength for all involved. Changes and transitions in life can be tough & can cause depression, anxiety and questions. Working through this can help with overall recovery.

How can you find the therapist that's right for you? You might consider calling a few people to see if you connect well on the phone. I'd be glad to talk with you, even meet briefly in person if that would help you make a decision. In the meantime, here are a few things that you might want to know about me as they have influenced the way I do therapy.

Counseling can be a responsive process, providing support and facilitating insight as the client explores and moves through past and present challenges. It can also be a preventive process, allowing clients to clarify and build on internal strengths that promote wellness and resiliency. My treatment approach is both cognitive-behavioral (focused on the connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors) and psychoeducational (promoting the building of social and emotional skills). From a foundation of self-awareness, we can help you to expand your coping strategies and improve your relationships.

As a therapist I partner with each client helping them to identify patterns of thought and behavior that are no longer effective and guide them in discovering new, more rewarding ways of relating and connecting with others.

Are you and your child having a difficult time understanding and communicating with one another? Maybe you don't know what to do anymore. Counseling can help you, your child, and/or your family get the support you need. Being in a safe environment can help your child/family gain insight, change irrational thinking and negative behaviors, and gain skills that lead to a healthier life.

My ideal client is an individual who either has been contemplating change or is ready to make changes in their life and would like to have someone objective to talk with. I am open minded and love to learn from my clients. I think that continuing education is vital and that mental health is as important as physical health. My ideal client would be someone who would take what they think is beneficial from our session and practice it in their everyday life. Then we would discuss in future sessions how the practice went and what needs to be adjusted-if anything!

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.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Rochester, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

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.
