Dr. Michael Rocco


About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been doing psychotherapy since 1999. I have worked with both individuals and couples, from a NICU setting to hospice:across the life span.

My style is warm and interactive, using a variety of methods, whatever it takes to help you achieve your goals. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is probably the best description of my theoretical orientation. Starting therapy is not an easy task, and my goal is to help you weather the storm, and get you to where you want to be.

This is my first therapy experience that I have done online. I am very pleased with the results that I am getting with Dr. Rocco. He asks me the right questions to get me thinking about the root of my problems, I would highly recommend him as a therapist with BetterHelp.

Written by L.A. on May 04, 2022 after therapy with Michael for 2 months

Dr. Rocco is kind, gentle and understanding. He has guided me toward becoming the person I want to be. Time with him passes quickly and while I have shed tears and expressed frustrations, I have truly enjoyed my time talking to Dr. Rocco. It's been very helpful and a successful journey with his help.

Dr Rocco is very kind and comforting and listens. I also talk a lot but it probably goes at the pace each individual needs, so in my case just listens. He’s already given me a couple of tools I’ve been using to help through some anxiety attacks and helped me understand why I might be having them.

Written by S.I. on Dec 29, 2021 after therapy with Michael for 2 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, and relationship issues

Dr. Rocco is helpful and respectful of boundaries. He is respectful of my pace and progress. Couldn’t ask for a better therapist.

Work with me!
