I specialize in evidence-based mental health care for children, adolescents, and their families. Offering a safe and welcoming space where youth feel supported and accepted is one of my primary goals as a therapist. I believe in forming partnerships that allow personal experiences, knowledge, and skills to help guide and shape our work together. Through positive affirmation, encouragement, and praise my clients work to build self-compassion and acceptance, learn new skills, and embrace progress-one session at a time.

Living with anxiety/OCD/ADHD, feeling as if living "between two worlds" by virtue of all of your intersecting identities, and feeling confused about why your past haunts you (and why your most important relationships are suffering) can culminate in helplessness and despair. By creating a non-judgmental, open, and relational space for both reflection and exploration, I can meet you as you are and help you forge and narrate a path that fits. I help you better understand why you experience yourself and the world as you do and identify how you can be more present and move forward with tools, skills, and greater agency in your life.

Each of us has the right to a safe, warm, environment in which we feel respected, listened to and truly understood. As a therapist, I work hard to provide that environment and to be that person who deeply gets you. When we suffer, whether as children or adults, we often are left with a sense of loss of self. A key purpose of therapy, in my view, is to find, reclaim, or strengthen your authentic self and to let that authentic self take the lead in your life.

In person and virtual availability currently. My goal is to understand what has caused you suffering and pain and to support you in feeling better. One way that I think about what "feeling better" means is to help you literally become better at feeling – better at discerning, accepting, and directing your own feelings. This self understanding can be life changing in facing the human task of surviving everything from everyday to extreme struggles. Shame is commonly the biggest barrier to finding support to resolve our problems, but seeking resolution all alone can feel defeating and leave people lost and without answers.

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.
