Please email for a quicker response. Therapy is a collaborative endeavor that requires a deep sense of safety if clients are to risk creating the change they long for. I believe it is very important to cultivate a secure relationship. I use evidence-based therapies and use an eclectic blend of person-centered approaches to meet the needs of each individual. My goal is to meet each client where they are at, help them identify their innate assets and apply them to the areas of their lives where they are struggling. I believe that our mental and emotional health is just as important as our physical health.

I love working with people to understand their own patterns of thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationships. All of these patterns have a root cause, and have served you in some way at some time—even if they are now proving to be unhelpful or harmful. In our work together, we will come to better understand the problems you face, develop a plan to make a change, and then put that plan into action. I specialize in working with pre-teens, teens, and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, BPD, ADHD, patterns of difficulty regulating emotions, and pervasive isolation/interpersonal conflict.

Perhaps you have the things you always thought would bring you happiness, such as family, friends, and a good job, but you still feel like something is missing; that you are not as happy as you “should be.” Life can be challenging at times, resulting in feelings of sadness, anxiety, and stress. We can start to feel like we have lost control of our lives, or that we do not have the power to make positive changes. Genuine happiness feels out of reach, leaving us with a sense of emptiness or lack of social connection. Tackling these issues can be scary, leaving us feeling vulnerable and exposed.

I believe successful counseling experiences begin through relationship. Prior to transitioning to the field of counseling I worked extensively within the criminal justice system. I thought that I might have an opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals who have faced various challenges in life. I use individually tailored counseling tools such as brief psychodynamic exploration, mindfulness training, emotional freedom techniques (EFT), narrative, breathwork, goal setting, and solution focus to offer clients an opportunity to look deep within themselves for answers to life’s questions.

Helping people help themselves. Adults and couples. Anxiety, depression, dependency, uncertain fears and specific symptoms. Conflict, school and job stress, trauma, bereavement. I draw on decades of experience (and was the Clinical Unit Administrator for two agencies). With empathy, time, and care, I help people to draw on their strengths to learn to be good communicators and effective problem-solvers and to gain a sense of control, meaning, and wholesome relatedness.

Life feeling hard is normal, but there are times when it feels like too much. Grieving, worrying, connecting, differentiating, feeling stuck, relationship challenges, self doubt, fear, entrenched patterns that we can’t seem to change. It can feel impossible to figure out on your own where things are stuck and what might help.

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.
