Effective Counseling and Therapy in Henrietta, New York

Do you feel stuck? Are you living out of a place of true purpose and strength? How are your relationships with those closest to you? Are you feeling overwhelmed by your circumstances and hope for some direction and peace?

It would be a privilege for me to walk this road with you! As a therapist with 20 years in the counseling field, I use a multi-faceted approach with all of my clients as no two of us are the same!

We all come to the table with unique gifts, but sometimes get so overwhelmed by our struggles that we need someone to point the way back! Individuals, couples, and more, I help my clients see what’s “getting in the way” and develop an individualized plan to get their life back on track.

Mental Health Assessments and Evaluations

DOT/SAP Assessments

A positive drug screening can be a cause for a Department of Transportation Substance Abuse Professional (DOT SAP) Assessment. I provide employers and employees compliant, professional assessments with a quick turn around.

OASAS Certified DWI Assessments

New York state mandates DWI and drug-related charges to be assessed by an OASAS provider. I am licensed by the state to provide such assessments and can help you navigate the process.
