The suffering we experience is so personal we tend not to want to share it. How can we open up about something that shakes us so? How can we bring someone into our pain? Psychotherapy, as I practice, is a gentle and respectful way that you can begin to approach changing those things that burden you. I provide a safe, trusting relationship where you are able to learn to comfortably live life again.

Developing a healthy lifestyle approach is the best way to create a harmonious balance. Integrating multiple therapeutic techniques are powerful to implement and incorporate in everyday living. When a person is emotionally "stuck", it can be absolutely emotionally devastating.

I want to congratulate you on taking the first step towards healing, change and acceptance. Choosing a therapist can feel like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be that way. As a prospective client I want to partner with you in your journey of self- reflection; affirming and knowing that you have made the best possible investment into yourself. I work with individuals (adults and teenagers), as well as couples. During therapy I work with clients collaboratively to build healthy coping mechanisms, learning how to deal with life’s stressors.

My clients want to work with me to achieve their goals and resolve any conflict they are experiencing in their life. I enjoy working with clients experiencing depression and anxiety, OCD, addictive behaviors, eating disorders (specialize), difficult life experiences, trauma, ASD, medically compromised family issues, chronic mental health issues. I truly enjoy helping my clients with grief and loss so that they can move on from grief while holding onto their loved ones/or things. I like family involvement or family work because I look at barriers as a family of origin issue and a family goal, not just the “identified patient”.

I provide an empathetic and safe space where my clients can reveal anything without fear of judgement. I specialize in treating anxiety and depression and I do this by helping my clients to reframe negative thoughts. I also provide suggestions on a variety of tools and coping skills that may be beneficial. In addition, I have experience working with clients with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. This requires a bit of a different approach than other anxiety disorders, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) where you stay present in the moment and allow the thoughts rather than avoid or fight them.

It's hard. I know it is. Feeling so anxious that you cannot function at school, work or with friends. Feeling depressed that it's just numbing. Feeling like you are fighting with everyone and no one gets you! Maybe you feel like you are eating too much or too little. Is meeting a therapist a good idea or can you figure things out on your own? Scrolling through therapist profiles isn't helping either. I have something to share with you.

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.
