Research has shown that people don't learn from people they don't like. Effective therapy evolves if the person seeking help likes the helper and experiences the helper as empathic, humble, competent, humorous and caring. Therapy is a respectful, mutually active endeavor between the helper and the patient in which the client feels comfortable, safe, and confident. Constructive therapy gives clients hope: that they will experience increasing well-being; that they will enhance their quality of life; that their social relationships will improve; and they will feel greater congruence between their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.

Although I'm not personally taking new clients, you may contact me to be on the waiting list for one of the trauma therapists I supervise/oversee in my practice! As a clinical psychologist, I specialize in working with individuals, couples, and families who have been impacted by trauma. We are shaped most profoundly by our earliest and closest relationships, and when those relationships have been fraught with chronic adversity – either due to neglect and abuse, or due to unintentional or unavoidable life adversity – we tend to struggle emotionally, behaviorally, and interpersonally with the impact of early life trauma exposure.

I am here to help you! You may be feeling overwhelmed or are having difficulty reflecting back on things that have happened to you in the past. You might find yourself feeling distracted and stuck and that it has started to affect your relationships, your job, your sleep, everything! You may be thinking, "Can therapy really help me? Talking to a complete stranger?" I believe sometimes people simply need a little help to learn better coping tools to manage stress and whatever else life might throw their way. Unfortunately, we are not often taught these tools growing up.

In my 30 years of experience as a therapist, clinical supervisor, researcher, educator and writer on complex trauma, I have come to believe that we are shaped as much by the good things that went missing from our lives as the bad things that happened to us. My clients have often endured severe abuse, neglect, oppression, and other forms of life adversity. They have learned to cope and survive in ways that get misunderstood and misdiagnosed, and that can cause profound stigma, shame and social rejection. Their courage and resilience inspires awe. Finding a therapist who can see and accept all parts of them is one key to recovery.

I believe that attending to inner experience in the presence of a caring, well-trained, and interested therapist can lead to tangible life improvements. I'd like to work with you to improve your mood, outlook, and relationships. Therapy offers a rich and warm environment to get to know yourself and what it is you would most deeply like to have in your life. Equally importantly, therapy can then help you build the tools and resources (both internal and external) to transform your life.

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.
