SERVICES

Working with adolescents (ages 12+) and adults of all ages!

Currently, I am offering all my sessions online.

Individual Therapy

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.

Group Therapy

I offer multiple group therapy options in the Rochester, NY area. You can check out my current group options listed below. 

For more information about any of the groups or to register, please Contact Gem.

Couples or Family Therapy

Working with couples or family typically requires 60 minute 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.

Trainings & Panel Discussions

In the past, I have planned and hosted panels on Intimate Partner Violence. Currently, I offer parent DBT workshops and professional CEU trainings on Gender Dysphoria. If your organization would like a custom workshop, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
