Nicole Bondi, LCSW-R (585) 642-1709

Welcome! I specialize in treating issues of older adulthood, aging, grief, loss, depression, anxiety, and caregiver stress.


Services & Pricing

As you consider making the call to start therapy, you may be feeling overwhelmed, stuck, afraid, or anxious. I want to reassure you that your call to me will be answered with warmth and kindness. 

Our first contact will be a free 15-minute phone call to identify what brings you to therapy, answer any of your questions, and to make sure you are ready to schedule your first appointment. Please leave me a detailed message with your name and call back number on my confidential voicemail:  585-642-1709

Our first scheduled appointment is a 60-minute session where we will clarify your needs and begin to process what you'd like to achieve in our work together. 

Our regularly scheduled individual psychotherapy appointments are 50-minutes sessions.

After many years working in an outpatient mental health clinic where patients had had to wait months until their next appointment, I have made it my private practice priority to keep weekly availability a possibility to all of my patients. How often we meet is based on your needs. I can see you within a week.

I accept HSA, FSA, credit cards, check, or cash. You will need to pay for the session at the time of the appointment. I am an out-of-network provider. If you have out-of-network benefits, I can provide you with a receipt you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement based on your health plan.

First Intake Session- $180

Psychotherapy Sessions - $140 

About Me

I graduated from San Diego State University with a Master's in Social Work in 2006. I've worked as a Behavioral Coach throughout San Diego County with families and youth in their homes. I was a School Social Worker in Coronado, CA before moving to Rochester, NY.

I moved to Rochester in 2010 and began my work as an individual and group psychotherapist at the University of Rochester's Strong Behavioral Health Older Adults Clinic. I earned my Clinical License and "R" Privilege (LCSW-R) which allows my services to be reimbursed by insurance companies. With eight years of experience leading the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Anxiety Management Groups at that clinic, I earned the Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP) credential.

In 2017, I accepted the opportunity to lead Trauma Groups in a school. I am trained and certified as a Mindful Schools Educator which aligns with my style as a therapist. I am a certified HeartMath Coach and I use these evidence-based techniques within the school to provide group interventions that support teachers.

I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and a member of the American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA).


Rising Up

I believe that with each struggle, we can find strength. We are never really alone, even when we feel lonely. There is a purpose for our suffering. I will hear your heart. I will listen deeply. I will start where you are. This is your journey.
