At our core, we all seek to feel acceptance, love, and competence. When these basic needs are not being met in our life we often begin to feel lost, stuck, or alone. My compassionate, relationally informed practice allows me to join with you to understand what life looks and feels like through your lens. Together we will examine early attachments and relationships to discover learned core beliefs and how they impact the way you see yourself and relate to the world around you.

I offer guidance in your journey of rediscovering unconditional love for self and the world. I help you have compassion for challenging feelings by acknowledging how these feelings are separate from our inner spirit and thus don’t define our worth. It becomes easier to accept these feelings by also acknowledging that they have a purpose of self protection and therefore come from a place of love. Acceptance of feelings allows us to return to nurturing our bodies through somatic practices and reach a state of joy in the present moment for our blessings. I hope I can reignite the light already in you so it can shine brighter

You know that feeling of disconnection between your head and your heart? When you're struggling and know that the feedback you're getting from trusted loved ones is logical, but for some reason it just isn't making you feel better? If you could just "think" or "do" your way out of pain, you probably wouldn't be here. Emotions always show up for good reason - even when they don't seem to fit. God created the spectrum of emotions to be felt, seen, heard, and understood. When we don't have a safe place to explore them, they get ignored, buried, stuck, and confusing, and they can no longer do their job. This creates disconnection.

I see psychotherapy as a journey in which two individuals, therapist and patient, co-create the story of the patient's life. In doing so, together they connect disconnected parts of the self, acknowledge and resolve internal conflicts, work through old losses, and discover new options for leading a more purposeful and meaningful life. For parents, I provide consultation and parenting support when children are struggling. I also provide psychoanalytic clinical supervision focusing on helping clinicians deepen and strengthen the therapeutic relationship with their clients with the aim of reaching more meaningful growth and change.

Prioritizing your emotional and mental needs is empowering, but takes courage - often taking the first step is the most challenging part. While there is no 'one size fits all' when it comes to therapy, it's meaningful to feel heard and accepted when pursuing healing, development and personal growth. Feeling trapped, powerless, anxious, depressed and/or stuck can lead to frustration and isolation. When looking for someone to help you identify, assess and articulate your feelings, needs and goals, I can provide an empathetic, supportive and solution-oriented approach to you on your therapeutic journey. You are not alone!

During my 40+ years 0f practice here in Chatham my approach to psychological treatment has come to be informed by a number of modalities -- psychodynamic therapy, family systems therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness meditative practice, and, most of all, by my experience working with the people who have come to me for help. Life is challenging and it is certainly not easy to be a person. We are all born with a profound need for a sense of belonging/connection and of significance/substance. Those yearnings drive us to find fulfilling love and meaningful work, which demands constant effort and exposes us to uncertainty and loss. When losses and disappointments come in the realms of love and work and health, we are commonly subjected to debilitating, dispiriting feelings of insecurity, anxiety, and depression. If we do not handle these unbidden feelings wisely,, we may become angry in destructive ways, or we may withdraw from our responsibilities and our loves, or seek solace in drinking or drugs, or other escapist distractions that only make our lives and our painful feelings worse.

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.
