Where To Find Us

Lakes Counseling and Wellness Center is located at 207 E. Court St., Room 7, Ithaca, NY 14850.

Contact Us

You may contact me by phone at (607) 229-2533. Since I am often in session with clients throughout the day, you will likely receive a voicemail message when you call me. I check my messages several times a day, so you should receive a call back the same day.

*If you are in crisis, you may call the local crisis service at (607) 272-1616. If your situation is life threatening, you should call 911 or go immediately to the nearest hospital ER.*


Sessions are available by appointment. Please call to reserve a convenient time.
