About Me


Roxanne Hotchkiss, LCSW

Sometimes the strongest individual, couple or family unit may need extra support to deal with life circumstances and changes. My sessions provide a safe, caring and confidential environment where feelings, beliefs and behaviors can be explored. As a passionate advocate, and natural problem solver, my commitment and compassion can help you to gain the understanding and experience needed to promote change, healing, growth, harmony and peace in your life and the world around you. By helping empower you through challenges, I can help you create dynamic positive change in your life. I employ a holistic approach enabling clients to address core issues, and affect positive healing. In addition to common therapy approaches, my integrative wellness techniques may also include art therapy, music therapy, reiki, mindfulness, body-mind integration. I have been fortunate to work with with individuals, couples, families and children for over 25 years in a myriad of settings, including in private practice, group settings, wellness centers, public schools as well as crisis centers. My current clients describe me as calm, confident, open-minded, encouraging and life-changing.

I typically use a holistic and inclusive approach which may include mindfulness meditation, yoga, Reiki or astrology. I believe that using a broad array of therapeutic options and a comprehensive approach builds trusting relationships with my clients and leads them to create their own wellness integrated lifestyles. I offer couples, family and individual counseling.
Couples attend sessions with me to improve communication, resolve personal conflicts gain an education on the stages of a relationship, break through old patterns and build positive habits. Some types of issues that a couple may seek help with are: parenting, grieving, depression and/or anxiety, LGBTQ issues, domestic violence, infertility, marital conflict and substance abuse. Sometimes the strongest family unit may need extra support in dealing with unexpected circumstances or changes including but not limited to illness, grief or loss, unemployment, parenting challenges.
I have a strong sense of compassion and commitment for helping people gain the necessary qualities for a successful relationship. Using a “wellness” model as opposed to an “illness” one highlights and encourages my clients’ strengths. I work with individuals and families by providing a safe, caring and confidential environment where clients can explore their feelings, beliefs and behaviors.
Clients may seek therapy to work through challenging memories or experiences, set personal goals to promote desired change, cope with major life changes, improve parenting skills and/or family relations, cope with mental health issues, childhood trauma or to greater their self-knowledge. I’m well versed in helping you through common struggles with anxiety, gender identity, addiction and depression as well as any other challenges you are currently facing. We will develop a collaborative relationship in which we decide together what kind of treatment would be best for you. When working with families, I usually start with the homeostasis of the family unit. We first ask the question, “What does the family unit look like when things are going well?” Often symptoms emerge in a family or even with just one member that can alter the ability of the family’s tendency to maintain internal stability. Family therapy is usually short-term and involves family members who are willing to participate. Family therapy can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times.

Written by C.A. on May 28, 2022 after therapy with Roxanne for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and intimacy-related issues

Roxanne is my second therapist here. She fits my needs much better than my last therapist. She's easy to talk to, understood my concerns and made me feel more confident that they are valid and gave me the push I needed to confront them with my partner. Just having someone in your corner who is objective and not a close friend/relative of mine or my partner was very helpful.

Roxanne is calm and bubbly. She listens to me and helps me see multiple sides of my problems. Her out of the traditional box thinking really makes me feel more connected and willing to share.

Roxanne is so incredibly supportive and attentive to my needs. I feel completely comfortable telling her anything. Thankfully we are completely on the same page with some of the most sensitive topics of today's world that are very important to me. She's super great with communication between sessions too. Sometimes there's a bit of confusion with our different time zones when we're working out our next appointment, but that's minor. I would most definitely recommend her.

Roxanne has been amazing to work with- I have only had two sessions but can feel big changes happening with her support. She makes a 30 minute session feel like a weekend retreat! She listens attentively and responds with an incisive viewpoint that brings me to the core of the issue. I am so grateful to be working with her!

Roxanne has a gift for quickly understanding the heart of the matter and lending gentle insight. She clearly has an understanding of what it means to be human. I was looking for a few sessions to help me move past a specific issue, and will definitely reach out to her again for future sessions. Thank you, Rox!

Written by K.A. on Sep 19, 2021 after therapy with Roxanne for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and adhd

I enjoyed talking with Roxanne. I felt like she understood my issues.

Written by M.A. on Sep 12, 2021 after therapy with Roxanne for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I've been so impressed by Roxanne's empathy and understanding! I was able to just kind of muddle my way through describing some of my frustrations and struggles, and she IMMEDIATELY pinpointed and described my overarching issues/concerns that I was struggling to put into words.
I greatly appreciate how she works with my thoughts and feelings. I'm not afraid of being open, because my thoughts and feelings are never 'wrong' -- they're understandable and relatable, which is part of why she seems so invested in exploring different perspectives, or different techniques to work with those energies.
10/10, hands down would, and will, recommend to others.

She understands you in a deep and profound way. She looks past the surface and makes you comfortable to dig deep and really see what you need to work on and the steps to take to get to a place of awareness and understanding. I highly recommend Roxanne!
