Are you looking for counseling in Rochester, NH?

Are you struggling with feeling depressed and exhausted all the time?

Does your heart race every time you are faced with a stressful event or thought?

Do you go into a full-blown panic every time you think about your trauma?

Or are you struggling to balance caring for an aging parent while taking care of your own home and finding YOU get lost in the shuffle? Do you sometimes feel like you never even make it into the shuffle at all?

If you are finding less time for self-care, and feel like you can never catch your breath, then let's take a look at your values and see where you place yourself in the long list of responsibilities.

The situations above are all reasons why it might be time to reach out for some help and support from a therapist. I can help you learn the skills needed to manage the stress in your life, while setting priorities based on your values that allow you to find balance again.

I can help you find ways to take better care of yourself so you can continue to care for those you love. It's time to make yourself a priority.

My Approach

I believe therapy is a journey. That journey has the power to heal. It can also help you become your true self based on your core values. My approach is two-pronged - I help you identify and clarify your core values to help guide you in becoming the best version of yourself. I also emphasize the importance of our therapeutic relationship. I work collaboratively with you to identify old patterns of relating to others that no longer serve you. We then work to help move you towards new and healthier ways of being.
I work with adults seeking help with trauma  and those experiencing difficulty with a new life transition.  I also have a passion working with transgender clients looking at their choices for living a more congruent life.  Whether you are looking for healing, understanding, or growth, I would love to talk with you to see if we would be a good fit.  Call me for a free 15-minute consultation to talk about how I might be able to help you live with more ease.  If you have a history of trauma, be sure to click on my EMDR page for more helpful information on trauma.

A little bit about my background

I graduated from Columbia University School of Social Work in 1998.  I always knew I wanted to help others feel better about themselves.  My BA in Sociology gave me a wonderful overall view of society, and the pressures and messages we get from our culture.  In my work with clients, I try to be mindful of the negative messages and beliefs we have about ourselves, and teach tools to challenge those beliefs.  Before opening up my own practice, I worked primarily for community mental health clinics, as a supervisor and a clinician.
