Its a big step to decide to seek out support. All of us struggle with different aspects of our lives and therapy is a way to make sense of these struggles, past and present. My hope is that through this process, you can develop a better understanding of, and relationship with yourself. That may mean developing skills to manage emotions, improve communication or navigate interpersonal issues. That could mean building insight around family dynamics and experiences from the past that still cause pain. Maybe you notice things about yourself that you would like to improve upon. My role is to make space for what is important to you.

I believe that people have an inherent capacity for growth, especially in our most challenging periods of life. One significant way that this growth can be discovered is through psychotherapy. Whether you feel stuck in your past, present, or anticipated future, therapy can not only build awareness, but also offer solutions to ease emotional strife, develop healthier behaviors, and build better connections with yourself and others.

I believe counseling is a collaborative process, and progress in counseling looks different for every individual. I work with my clients to define their goals, and we discuss how we are going to work together to reach those goals. At times, this might involve trying new skills in between sessions, and I enjoy working with clients who are willing to try new strategies to be more effective in their lives. Not every skill works for every person or in every situation, and learning what what works is part of the process. My goal is to support my clients as they figure out ways to be the best versions of themselves.

Do you feel sad, anxious, depressed or lonely? Are you struggling to manage the stressors of daily life? One of the bravest things you can do is to take the time to heal and to move toward your goals. Life can be very difficult. It takes time to truly understand your own story and the impact that it has on us emotionally. Although anxiety, depression, and trauma can often make us feel numb or stuck, you do not have to stay that way.

Trauma affects many, if not all of us, and recovery from the impact of these experiences is a journey. In therapy, my focus is to establish a strong therapeutic relationship where healing can take place. Once trust is developed, the goal is to empower individuals to increase their sense of safety and control, and to cope with traumatic experiences. My wish is for individuals to be able to reengage in their lives and pursue their greatest hopes for themselves, without the traumatic experiences hindering their ability to do so.

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.
