Are you a 20 or 30 something looking to make sense of the confusing changes life so often throws our way? Like a musician, I'll teach you how to 'read the 'chord changes' of your life story to create more interesting music. I specialize in working with artists and show how deepening your personal work expands your craft. Similarly, I love showing non-artists how their psychological work can increase and open up creativity they didn't realize was right in front of them!

Working with diverse communities in the Rivertowns, women, couples, students and people of all ages are my specialties. I believe in a warm, compassionate and professional approach to counseling where client and counselor are able to work together. Assessing the strengths of each individual, and helping that person achieve their life goals despite the many obstacles in their way, or the losses they may be suffering is what I strive for as a therapist. As Carl Rogers says best "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."

I view therapy as a collaboration between patient and therapist. We are a team with a common objective. When you come in, we will first complete a thorough intake, and then put together a treatment plan that meets your individual needs. During therapy you will learn skills and techniques which you will practice in between sessions, and implement in your everyday life. I believe that if people understand what we are doing, why we are doing it, and how it is going to help them, then they are more likely to engage in treatment, and benefit more from therapy. When you are ready to end therapy, you will take these skills with you.

There’s a button that hangs on the bulletin board above my desk. It reads: It’s not easy being. No matter how well you’ve planned, how hard you’ve tried and despite all your best intentions, life is just hard sometimes. We all suffer at some point. That doesn’t mean we can’t live rich and meaningful lives and be the people we want to be. Past experiences, current circumstances, relationship difficulties, and old patterns of thinking and reacting can sometimes get in the way and keep us stuck and struggling. If this is happening with you, it makes sense to seek help.

I believe that compassion for oneself is the key to feeling better. When we can stop idealizing and stop trying to be what we're not, we can learn to have compassion and acceptance of who we really are. Accepting our human condition with its limitations, leads to self-knowledge, which leads to growth and ultimately to comfort within ourselves.

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.
