Life can be a tumultuous journey, full of ups, downs, and unpredictable twists and turns. Even when life begins to settle, our own minds can create upheaval and send us spinning into chaos once again. It can be like this for all of us, and no one should have to trudge through it on their own. At it's worst, we can feel completely broken, stuck, ashamed, lost, and we suffer. You are not alone, and you no longer need to feel alone in your struggle. Whether it is life transitions, relationships, the past, depression, anxieties, or whatever has you stuck or spiraling at this time, you have come to the right place.

Creative approaches to mental health treatment can effectively engage children and teens, as well as adults, in this important work. I believe in customizing therapy to each unique individual and family, to bring about the shared discovery of methods that will best suit their needs and support the achievement of their personal goals. Within a therapeutic partnership, my clients build strength and skills for identifying, tolerating, expressing, and addressing what words alone often fail to, so they may better manage through all of life's challenges independently.

Being human comes with complexities of great loss, love, curiosities and questions. We may reach a point in their experience where they feel like they are not living as their best and most authentic self. This can leave some feeling depressed, anxious, angry and fearful. As well as having ruminating thoughts, social withdrawal and being overwhelmed by it all. While working alongside a therapist, I believe that you can create a healthier and deeper understanding of the self, learn/practice communication skills, and process trauma to navigate and gain depth and perspective on the complexities of life.

If you are struggling right now, working together with a trained, caring, an objective person can be very helpful. You may not be sure how to choose a therapist you can work with and begin the process of feeling better. That makes sense because it is difficult to open up to a stranger about the challenges in life. You may have tried therapy before, and it did not help, or you did not "click" with the therapist you had chosen. If this sounds familiar to you, you are not alone.

Therapy can be a scary thing to start especially with the fear of vulnerability. Taking that leap, and pushing yourself to process topics such as unresolved trauma, regulating emotions, increasing healthy skills, substance use or on-going day to day stressors is something I would like to help you with. Life can throw you sudden and unexpected challenges that we as humans can be completely unprepared for. I would like to work with you to understand the difficulties surrounding change and the anxiety that occurs in our unknown future.

Everyone deserves time and space to explore and better understand their thoughts, feelings, reactions and behaviors, and to experience inner peace and joy. It is an honor to share space with someone interested in growth and healing. Once we can better understand our past experiences and how they affect us in the present, we have more choices and can make adjustments in our life as we see fit. I believe that you know what is best and have the answers. Through the therapy process, and safely delving into those hurt places, those answers will come to light and help you figure out the best way to care for yourself.

Worry, sadness, and uncertainty are natural responses to feeling you can't control parts of your life. Often regaining control feels like it requires giving up something else, whether it is time with family and friends, your passions, or last night's sleep. While dark humor, caffeine, and willpower may get you far, you shouldn’t have to give up the best parts of your life to just survive. No matter how you got here, you are the expert on yourself. My responsibility is to create a supportive and attentive space where you can gain perspective and resume growth.

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.
