Licensed Professional Counselor, PhD, LPC
I believe in providing intervention for clients and families that is purposeful. This means the client will be taught to understand what they need to do to reach their goals. This includes understanding the complexity of their emotional distress, obtaining skills and strategies, and getting feedback and support on applying these strategies effectively.
Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
I am interested not only addressing your individual symptoms, but exploring a deeper understanding and awareness of who you are, helping you construct new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving now and in the future. With my 20 years of experience in counseling adults, teens and children with anxiety, depression, mood disorders and behavioral challenges, I can help identify what has and has not worked in the past and help you have a different outcome this time. I can guide you to resource positive ways of coping and relating by accessing your strengths to manage life's changes and challenges.
Counselor, LPC, NCC
I am a therapist who specializes in working with adolescents, young adults, and adults. Life can sometimes look a little different than we want it to, and we don't always manage the way we hope. Anxiety, stress, depression, focus challenges, confusion - are all certainly things we can experience, and at times they can get in the way of feeling and living the way we know we can. Taking the step to engage in therapy can be hard, and I'm here to encourage you in accepting and believing in the support you deserve, and help you remember and believe that we do not have to do everything on our own.

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.
What type of therapist is right for me?
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.
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 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.
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.
