Family Therapy

Play therapy helps children to explore feelings, learn new coping skills, and build healthy relationships using art, puppets, sand, costumes, and games. Usually, play involves parents, too!

Brockport Marriage & Family Therapy is a private psychotherapy practice located in the village of Brockport, New York. The practice serves clients from Monroe County, Genesee County, and Orleans County.

As a licensed couple and family therapist, I treat children, adolescents, and adults within the context of their unique family history, life circumstances, and dynamics.

Psychotherapy can help you and your loved ones achieve a more fulfilling level of functioning so that you can derive greater enjoyment in life.

Marriage and family therapists are licensed mental health practitioners trained to treat a wide range of mental, emotional, and behavioral difficulties, including depression, anxiety, parent-child conflict, marital strife, and most adjustment disorders.

Collaborative in nature, couple and family therapy helps to identify and make the best use of our strengths, resources, and relationships. This takes courage and hard work. In my office, you and your loved ones are the experts on your life experience. As your therapist, I invite you to give the process a try and reap its many longstanding benefits.
Philosophy of Care
My approach to therapy is influenced by my life as a mother of four and my experience of growing up overseas. I believe therapy is most effective when it is solution-focused and collaborative.

At Brockport Marriage & Family Therapy treatment is designed to meet specific needs and achieve mutually-established goals. The following treatment modalities are frequently used to achieve the best possible outcome: cognitive-behavioral (CBT), narrative, emotion-focused, play-centered, experiential, and psycho-educational.
