Psychotherapy can be a powerful vehicle for change, for both individuals and couples. I work to create a trusting and collaborative relationship in therapy from which we can together identify or clarify your difficulties and begin to envision and create new possibilities.

Hi. Call when you are ready to start to have the life that you want. Each client is treated in a way that is specific to that individual. Even though many people share similar issues the way the issues are experienced is unique to the person who is experiencing it. Anyone can have a better existence through the exploration of their inner dynamics and the purpose that the style of functioning serves. People can get what they want out of life if they allow themselves to do that. No obstacle is too big to overcome. Things can be different if you want them to be.

I see individuals, couples, and others in non-traditional relationships virtually and in person. For analysis, I offer more frequent sessions—two, three, and four times per week—to support deeper work. People that seek me out as a therapist are often exploring questions related to gender, sexuality, or relationship matters. I also work with people experiencing anxiety and depression, working through trauma, and those who simply want to know themselves better or work through a persistent feeling that something’s not right. I have limited in-person availability.

As a psychodynamic therapist, I believe that developing an understanding of and respectful appreciation for the origins of one’s difficulties can make space for new, more flexible and fulfilling ways of being to emerge. I strive to cultivate a safe environment wherein individuals can explore unformulated experiences and lesser known parts of themselves. My therapeutic style is warm, collaborative, and responsive to the specific needs and goals of each person. I also hold that a strong therapeutic relationship can powerfully facilitate psychological growth and change.

I'm curious about you; there is no judgment about your past, your perceptions, or your feelings. My foundation is in trauma work & attachment theory, where we look at relationships and experiences and how they may affect you today: the social and cultural settings we're in, how the way we identify ourselves and the way others identify us impacts your sense of safety, how we are perceived, and what opportunities we have.

A good therapist helps clarify what we already do well and separates out what's useful from what's not. Therapy is about expanding your repertoire, spotting better choices, and enhancing communication skills. When insecurities worm their way into everyday life, and you're more or less "stuck" at an unsatisfying plateau, that's exactly when therapy makes a meaningful difference. On the road from confusion to clarity: a good place to be.

There is hope! Life is a series of ups and downs, but when the downs seem to dominate, it is time to get emotional support. The good news is that challenges can be a catalyst to life-enhancing solutions. Chronic issues can lead to hopelessness, loneliness, and problems in family, romantic, and professional relationships. A crisis such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or other loss can be devastating. Whether the issue is acute or chronic, psychotherapy can make all the difference in the world. A therapeutic alliance can support emotional well-being and assist in the healing process.

Do you feel you're at an inflection point in 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.
