I approach each therapeutic relationship with curiosity and compassion. I believe that therapy can be a space to give voice to the innermost parts of yourself, navigate and make meaning of difficult and painful experiences, and disentangle yourself from narratives and patterns that are no longer serving you. Through this process you may grow to experience deeper and more authentic relationships with yourself and others. I will center your strengths, wisdom, and innate intuition as we collaborate on your goals for our work together.

Trauma is often narrowly associated with experiences of overt violence; I work with a much broader understanding. Trauma can emerge from experiences that negatively impact and interfere with daily functioning, and I believe everyone deserves opportunities to heal from visible and invisible wounds. Utilizing an intensive trauma therapy model, I help clients rebuild from life’s most vulnerable moments. I center and honor my clients’ experiential knowledge and, as a mixed-race therapist, recognize the value of creating a safe, non-judgmental space for people who carry intersecting marginalized identities.

People often seek therapy during times of crisis, when they’re feeling particularly vulnerable and raw. Many people turn to psychotherapy to work through anxiety, depression, or trauma, or because they want to establish, repair, or deepen their relationships. Sometimes they want support adjusting to life transitions, or help developing personal insight and self-awareness. There may be clearly identifiable short-term goals that rise to the top during a crisis and are resolved in a relatively short period of time, but some people also like the process of self-exploration and growth that comes with the practice of more in-depth work.

Our emotions and how we make sense of them can change dramatically over time. You may find yourself having new feelings about something that happened a long time ago; wanting to more deeply engage with an experience you have been carrying for many years; or struggling to adapt to a new circumstance in your life. We can sometimes get stuck relying on the solutions we developed to cope in earlier parts of our lives in ways that are no longer working well for us. In my work, I seek to support you in learning about your experiences, responses, and needs in a way that fosters growth and a greater understanding of yourself.

Life can be difficult--sometimes, unnecessarily hard. People cope in a variety of ways to deal with what life throws at them, but sometimes these strategies are unhealthy and act as a barrier to a meaningful life. Through empathy and deep listening, I can help you find yourself. The power of being truly heard is immensely powerful--without someone seeing and understanding who we are, it is easy to feel lost. I can help you rediscover yourself and find a meaningful path forward.

My clinical background involves working with young professionals pursuing their degree or who are in their first years in the workforce. I also specialize in working with the LGBTQ community and help folks navigate the stressors of dating, relationship issues, loneliness, and issues around emotional intimacy.

I have a warm, calm and accepting presence and enjoy examining the work from multiple perspectives. I believe clinical work should help increase insight by finding connections between past experiences, the present moment and expectations of the future. My practice is informed by psychodynamic approaches, creating an open and flexible space that is responsive to changing needs. I incorporate metaphor, analogy, art, music, play, mindfulness and relaxation to more fully explore the self in moving toward expression and authenticity.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
