In these stressful times you may find yourself struggling with feelings of anxiety or depression that have long been with you or have emerged in response to recent events. You may feel hopeless about the future or plagued about the past feeling a strong sense of disconnection from yourself or others. Even attempts to talk to friends or family fail as they may not know or understand how to help you. Regardless of the specific nature of your difficulties, their impact is palpable, affecting your health, your relationships and self-perception. Whatever the struggle, you are looking for some help.

While therapy is meant to foster growth and personal reflection, I strongly believe that therapy should also cultivate exploration, creativity, curiosity and a sense of empowerment. As a queer woman of color, I cherish environments that affirm and celebrate who I am in all of my complexities. I treasure relationships where I do not have to explain myself or my experiences. Unfortunately, these environments and these relationships can be hard to find, making us feel a pressure to deny parts of ourselves in order to be accepted or seen by others.

From my point of view, therapy is the process of creating a life that feels meaningful to you while dealing with pain in authentic and useful ways. I’ll warmly support you throughout the journey. When you're ready, we’ll begin by developing a therapeutic relationship where every aspect of you feels welcomed, even the parts that feel overwhelming or embarrassing sometimes. I want you to know that you’re connecting with me, a real person, not a blank slate. This might look like shared laughter, ongoing discussions about what feels best for you, and finding small ways to alleviate societal pressures.

Feeding is often times taken for granted. It is something many children acquire and maintain naturally; however, this is not the case for everyone. Children with feeding disorders may eat extremely limited diets, need supplemental nutrition through feeding tubes or specialized formulas, require table foods to be blended or manipulated to a lower texture, and/or depend upon others to feed them. Though feeding disorders can be multifaceted, including having medical, nutritional, and oral-motor components, psychsocial or behavioral difficulties are also at the forefront of many feeding challenges.

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.
