What if I told you that you can stop having anxiety, intrusive thoughts or that pit in your stomach feeling? You might think, ‘Doesn’t everyone feel like this? This is just life, right?’ The answer is no! You don’t have to carry this yuck around with you anymore. Change is possible with EMDR therapy. We all have life experiences that impact us in minor and major ways that leave a lasting impression on us. Imagine a life where you have lessened anxiety or depression symptoms. You can have less inner conflict, better decision making, and enhanced self-control.

Life is a journey. At any moment, we can face struggles in our relationships, work, health and wellbeing; or witness these struggles in loved ones. During such times, we may feel unequipped, lost, and alone. I work with adults struggling with issues of adjustment, anxiety, depression, grief, health, identity, relationships, trauma, and work/life balance. Additionally, I help diverse clients navigate issues related to intersectionality, culture-shock, and re-entry.

Challenges occur in everyday life; however, when those challenges seem insurmountable, counseling can be a wonderful way to assist you in moving forward.  I believe there is a power lying within individuals that promotes their ability to draw on their own knowledge and personal strengths to rise above those tough life challenges.

When people ask what I do for a living I often hear things like “oh that must be so hard. I can’t imagine doing what you do”. Not offended but my typical response is, if you genuinely like people and care deeply about their welfare, being a therapist isn’t hard at all. In my experience, being a therapist is exciting and deeply rewarding. For many years I worked in the substance abuse treatment field with an emphasis on trauma therapy. I'm passionate about working with adults who are having difficulty with mood disorders, trauma recovery, and substance abuse problems.

**Flexible evening and weekend appointments available.** Therapy should have lasting impact and help you to create meaningful change in your life, for the long-term. I approach care with humor, compassion, and an open-mind. Change is hard, developing insight can be painful, and avoidance seems like a better idea on paper than it typically is. As a therapist I value your needs, your pace, and your goals. We can get there.

Relationships might be the source of your problems or are being negatively impacted by your stress. Our work together will improve how you feel, increase understanding of yourself, and identify long-term solutions.

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.
