Currently working with adolescents (ages 10+) and adults of all ages
I typically provide 50 minute individual sessions. We can determine the length and frequency of sessions together. We will initially need to meet weekly or bi-weekly to assess, establish goals and work on skills. We can later meet tri-weekly or monthly for continued support and maintenance of skills.
I offer multiple group therapy options in the Rochester area. You can check out my current group options listed below.
