Reaching out to a therapist can feel overwhelming and incredibly vulnerable - I’ve been there too. I remember the anxiety and self-doubt in asking for help. I also remember the therapist who helped me through some of the most difficult seasons of my life. Healing happens through relationships. When we can share all parts of ourselves with another and be truly seen. Witnessed. Understood. The messy, the dark, the confusing and the seemingly unlovable. All parts of you are welcome here. You don’t have to do it alone, I would be honored and humbled to join you.

Life can become challenging, with or without a mental disorder. Regardless of the severity of your struggle, having professional support can be essential. I believe that the best way to get through the difficulties of life require selfempowerment. You may need an objective person with whom to process the curveballs life has thrown at you. You may need guidance and life skills (relaxation, coping, etc) to better handle overwhelming challenges. You may need directed professional care to help with symptoms associated with mental disorders. My job is to help get you back on the path to the life you want.

I am a licensed psychologist with over 20 years of experience with teens and adults. I have worked with patients to be more focused and efficient and unlock more of their minds' potential. At times, this has included diagnosis of ADHD. Some of my patients avoided others due to social anxiety, or struggled with free-floating anxious thoughts of any type. A majority of these patients found ways to live and interact with others in ways they had only dreamed of. Through mindful acceptance, patients have been able to recruit their own power for self-healing and enjoy a life based on gratitude and being of help to others.

Sometimes our lives can seem out of balance. Our relationships may feel strained or stuck. We may notice our thoughts racing. Maybe we are confused about who we are and where we fit in. When this happens, we may turn to unhealthy ways of coping.

I understand why there has been a recent rise in anxiety and depressive symptoms for many people of all ages. Major events and unexpected life changes can cause a significant amount of stress and anxiety. Stress can make us feel out of control and overwhelmed physically, mentally and emotionally. Things from our past can start to impact us more in our present. Relationships can seem more challenging and trusting ourselves almost impossible. Every person is different and when you take a closer look at every aspect of your life with help from an objective support it can help you see things more clearly and offer ways to cope.

The human experience can be filled with joy but also suffering, this chapter of your life is causing turmoil but you are resilient. Bouts of depression, negative self talk, daily anxieties and struggling with low self esteem no longer serve you, allow yourself to work alongside a trained professional to guide you through the process of healing. Therapy can help you increase confidence, empower you to create boundaries and aid in your conscious understanding of the interconnectedness of your mind, body and spirit.

Clinically, any potential client of mine should know that I have an eclectic framework for practicing psychotherapy. I conduct CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), TF-CBT (trauma-focused CBT), ABA (applied behavioral analysis), solution-focused therapy, and structural and strategic family therapy. I love learning about neurobiology and the effects that stress has on the brain. Interpersonally, a client coming into session with me can expect to encounter a warm, compassionate, and encouraging soul who has a dry sense of humor and tends to address problems in a straightforward manner.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. It is often hard for us to accept help due to society’s belief that we should “handle it” on our own. These unhelpful thinking patterns impact how we interact in our relationships, as well as how we process things as they are happening. I strive to work with clients through the hard times while making the process as enjoyable as possible. We can get caught in bad relationships, trauma cycles, grudges, and anger.

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.
