It is easy to feel stuck in relationships, personal and professional pursuits and with ourselves. We become frustrated and discouraged when our efforts don't bring us the desired results. How we think, how we feel and what we do can reveal how we are holding ourselves back and what will help us move forward. I would like to help you learn more about the internal obstacles that get in the way of achieving your desired goals and discover how to move through them successfully.

I care deeply about supporting mothers in the perinatal time period and throughout the parenting journey. Bringing a child into the world is a wonderous thing and can also be deeply challenging. I work with clients to manage this new role of parenthood while also taking care of themselves and honoring the other important non-parent parts of themselves. The intensity of the perinatal time period can sometimes trigger past struggles to resurface or become exacerbated. I work with mothers to navigate challenges in order to lead more fulfilling lives not only for themselves, but also so they can show up as calm and connected parents.

You're a new parent and this isn’t what you expected. You don’t recognize yourself anymore. You’re exhausted and struggling. You were promised “a village” of support; that you would be “glowing”; that these would be some of the happiest moments of your life. But instead, you’re feeling overwhelmed, alone - even angry. You’re juggling so much, and there’s so much pressure. You wonder how you’re possibly going to get through this. Please know, you are not alone. 1 in 7 people who give birth experience depression and/or anxiety during pregnancy or postpartum.

The insight, understanding and perspectives that can be gained through therapy can be invaluable to our sense of well being, personal autonomy, and fulfillment. Although I have a generalist clinical practice--meaning I work with men and women who come to treatment for a variety of reasons---I have a special interest in treatment issues related to depression, loss, grief, life cycle transitions, and women's mental health. Other areas of interest include: diminished self esteem, abuse--sexual, physical and emotional, alcohol abuse, and issues related to individuals living with a terminally ill family member.

Maybe you’re feeling alone and disconnected from the world, like you have to hide your true self. You’ve forgotten what it’s like to be happy, are in the middle of a major transition, or need to cope with something really painful but are not sure how. You oscillate between numbness and overwhelming emotions, it’s difficult to set and maintain boundaries, or your relationships are not what you want them to be. You know you want things to be different, and you are ready to take a step toward healing with the support of a therapist who will see, hear, and understand you as a whole person (not just a bunch of symptoms) without judgment.

I believe that depression and anxiety emerge from patterns of emotion, thought, and behavior that we learned in order to survive. So therapy begins with a faith that you came by your struggles honestly, in an effort to protect yourself and make sense of your world. From there, the first step is to recognize how these patterns function now in your life and your mind, and to believe in the possibility that you can feel different--freer, safer, calmer, more lovable.

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.
