Welcome to the Couch!

I’m Despina Mitchell, a seasoned licensed marriage and family therapist and sex therapist with over two decades of experience right here in the heart of Rochester. This blog is your personal invitation to explore the intricate tapestry of mental health, wellness, relationships, and everything in between. Consider it an extension of my therapy office, where I’m excited to share insights, tips, and engaging discussions inspired by the diverse themes that emerge in my practice.

From offering relationship advice to unraveling the threads of personal well-being, this space is a dynamic hub for anyone seeking guidance or a fresh perspective. As a therapist, specializing in both marriage and family dynamics as well as sexual health, I understand the importance of talking about these topics without shame. This blog embraces open conversations on vital aspects of our lives, fostering a community where insights and support flourish.

Whether you’re navigating relationships, seeking mental wellness tips, exploring sexual health, or tackling individual challenges, let’s embark on this journey together. Your well-being deserves a spotlight, and this blog is here to illuminate the path forward with understanding, compassion, and, most importantly, without judgment.

My hope is to dismantle judgments or shame around engaging in therapy. It’s a courageous step towards personal and relational growth. Therapy provides a safe space to explore, heal, and grow without fear of judgment. Healthy and helpful, it’s a transformative tool for individuals and couples alike. If you’re hesitant, let’s start the conversation about the positive impact therapy can have on your life. Have questions or interested in learning more about appointments? Feel free to call or text 585-387-0008 or email me at I welcome your inquiries and look forward to connecting to see if we’re a good fit for your journey towards wellness.
