You want a deeper connection with your partner but it feels so awkward to talk about it or create such fights that you both have accepted it and you're now walking on eggshells. You're not even sure they see you or care about your experience anymore. You feel stuck with a person who will never appreciate you or understand you as a person. Sex too is awkward and now feels like a chore. One of you is pushing for it the other avoiding it. You wish that you felt closer to your partner and more attracted to them. If only sex was interesting and pleasurable...but it's not. It's a chore that at times involves painful sex and avoiding.

Often times we are carrying the mental and emotional weight of issues in our relationships, past experiences, traumas, or day to day stressors. This heaviness can begin to cause issues in other areas of your life and often manifests in a myriad of ways. Do you have the relationships you desire? Are you achieving goals? Or is this heaviness leaving you feeling unfulfilled and stuck in life? Are you dealing with the effects of past trauma you've experienced? Seeking help can be the first step in finding relief from your emotional pain, healing, and changing the habits and patterns you've developed that aren't working for you anymore.

Life can be a struggle because of our internal and interpersonal difficulties. It can also feel daunting to reach out to another for help. The courage it takes to reach out is already the change process in motion in your life. My approach focuses not simply on the shame, guilt, anxieties, doubt and traumas that bring you to psychotherapy, but what is right and where is the glimmer of change in your struggles and traumas. I address traumatic experience, grief, addiction, emotional disturbances, life adjustments, and interpersonal stressors. I specialize in addiction recovery, PTSD and emotional disturbances, and personal growth.

Recognizing internal distress and seeking help from a professional can be an uncomfortable and courageous act. I hope to be a partner in your process of self-discovery, insight, and growth. My style tends to be collaborative, providing warmth and support while also encouraging honest emotional expression. I value personal exploration in a safe environment in order to improve self-understanding and self-acceptance. Fulfilling relationships with others are often a byproduct of this type of therapy, as is improved mood, increased self-confidence, and enhanced life satisfaction.

**Teletherapy Option Available** The decision to come to therapy typically arises when we reach a point where we say "I can't do this alone." The "this" could be anything; maybe you are experiencing significant stressors at work or in your relationship; perhaps you've had years of trying to manage symptoms of trauma, depression or anxiety alone, and you're tired; it could be that your relationship or family has gone through a major change, and you are struggling to adjust. Whatever the issue is, I am happy that you have acknowledged that support is needed, and in that acknowledgment you are on your way to progress already.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

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.

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.
