Guiding others has always been a passion of mine from an early age. As I got older, the passion became stronger and pushed me into many different volunteer positions. My desire to help facilitate change crossed paths with my love for volleyball and led me to Costa Rica on mission trips. It was there, in Costa Rica, I knew I was being called to work with people on a more intimate level as my life’s work. Now, I am a Licensed Social Worker. I earned my Masters Degree at New York University. I have worked closely with children, adolescents and adults as dealing with everyday stressors and anxieties to mental health diagnoses.

Do you feel like you’ve lost sense of who you are or want to be? Does daily life sometimes feel relentless? Have anxiety, depression, stress and life changes drained you of your ability to fully connect with yourself, your loved ones, your passions and goals? We all get caught up in life, and the patterns we’re used to, and change can feel so unattainable. Sometimes you feel so stuck in how things have always been, have always felt, and how you “should” be - that you aren't sure how to even start making changes. I can help you unpack some of the weight you're carrying, so you can start to work toward a more satisfying life.

As a clinical psychologist with over 30+ years of experience, I believe the purpose of therapy is to work together to face issues until they are resolved. It is important to feel some relief. As a good listener I have strong empathetic skills. I provide a warm, accepting and non-judgmental setting where a positive alliance can be formed. Therapy is a place to feel understood, to unload, share, but is also result oriented. Therefore, my approach is interactive. I work with children,adolescents, adults, families and couples.

When people think of therapy they tend to imagine a scary place where they have to tap into themselves to open up to strangers. I became a therapist because I wanted to be that safe place for someone to feel comfortable opening up. Everyone has a story. Each person has the right to feel heard, not judged, safe, and understood. My goal is to help them reach that satisfaction in a safe non-judgmental zone.

Maybe you're moving through days questioning yourself and your choices leaving you exhausted. Major life transitions can spike emotions that are hard to make sense of but you do not have to figure any of it out alone. You should never settle for not being your best self! It’s time you find peace while gaining perspective.

My natural focus is on individuals experiencing symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). I believe that making a strong connection right from the start is important and when an individual feels like he or she is understood, he or she is more willing to give the process of change a try. It also helps when those who experience ADHD or ASD are able to accept that what they are living with is not a disability but rather a strength and that it is okay to feel and be different. I say this from experience because I am childhood diagnosed.

With nearly two decades of clinical experience, I understand how overwhelming it may feel to begin the treatment process. Therefore, it is my hope to create a safe and comfortable environment for each of my clients, and to build a trusting therapeutic relationship, to support their healing and growth. I primarily practice from a CBT framework and support my clients in creating an awareness around their limiting beliefs, thoughts and feelings, and reframing those that are not serving them. As both an LCSW and NTP, I also view each of my clients through a holistic lens which places value on the mind-body connection.

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.
