When learning difficulties, and/or emotional/behavioral issues negatively impact social, academic, or work performance, it may signal the need for formal psychological testing. I conduct the following types of assessments, including but not limited to: Giftedness, Learning Disorders, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and Testing for Accommodations (e.g., Extended Time). I have over 25 years experience performing psychological evaluations in many different settings, including schools (elementary, middle, high school, college), inpatient/outpatient psychiatric clinics, forensic settings, and in my private practice.

As a therapist, I aim to create a safe emotional space where you will feel increasingly comfortable expressing your feelings and thoughts. I imagine therapy as a journey, a process of transformation from a place of suffering to a place of healing and see my role as that of a fellow traveler and a guide who listens to your experience and helps you create your own story. Being able to find words to match your experience and have someone witness that moment is a deeply freeing process, that leads to symptom relief, greater self-awareness and a more meaningful life.

We all turn a blind eye to parts of ourselves that are too painful to experience. In an accepting, nonjudgmental environment, together we will explore the difficulties with which you are struggling, slowly recognizing the parts which you are unaware of, but which influence your experiences, the way you feel, and the way you act or react. Getting to know yourself in a deeper way can lead to a sense of truth, creativity, ownership of experiences, and life choices. I am a psychoanalyst and a psychotherapist, a member at the Contemporary Freudian Society.

My guiding principle as a therapist is deep listening without judgment (acknowledgement plus acceptance) so that people can feel the freedom to express themselves, explore their experiences and create authentic connection. I believe that listening is an essential tool in healing and feeling valued. My approach is trauma-informed and client-centered, with an anti-oppression lens. I am committed to the lifelong unlearning of colonial structures that are deeply rooted in mental health, and to holding space for others to unpack how societal and institutional structures have impacted their mental health and wellness.

Most of us don't welcome difficult emotions; we try to disregard them, because we perceive them as our enemy. In fact, all of our emotions are signals that inform us about ourselves and the world around us, if we can learn to listen to them. When we accept all sides of ourselves and all of our feelings without discriminating against the negative ones, we are able to feel emotionally alive and connected. Psychological suffering occurs not because of our painful emotions, but because we try to erase them, and don't know what to do with them.

Hypnotherapy is a proven method to help smokers become non-smokers and people who suffer from many phobias such as fear of flying or elevators become people who are unafraid. With over a decade experience using the most up-to-date and non-directive hypnotic techniques, I have an excellent track record helping people -- usually in two or three sessions.

I work with people who are curious about their own lives and are interested in knowing themselves better, often in the hope of increasing self-esteem and gaining more control over the choices they make. The work of therapy can be invaluable in findng new ways of living and relating especially when anxiety and fear cut off possibilities and keep a person feeling stuck. While I don't believe in cookie cutter approaches to therapy, I find than many clients benefit from challenging negative self-talk, learning to listen to their bodies, and investigating unwanted patterns that persist in their lives. I've trauma training including EMDR.

I believe that treatment is most effective when the individual seeking therapy is willing to delve not only her/his conscious but unconscious thoughts and feelings. One must be as honest as possible and collaborate with me to determine what is helpful to him and what is not helpful. Psychotherapy is a process, often a long process. A willingness to persevere, in spite of difficult sessions and periods, is critical. Change is hard.

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.
