I believe that life is a balancing act. People seek balance in relationships, in happy versus sad days, in work time and home life, and in the influence of the past versus looking toward the future. Balance looks different to everyone, but we know it when we have it and miss it when it's gone. Life transitions such as graduation, career changes, the end of a relationship, a loss, or new parenthood can throw off our balance. Whether these changes are a part of our plan or outside of our control, we will learn from them. I love to walk alongside people in transition to help them find their own balance and build a life they love.

With over thirty years of experience in private practice, I have noticed how sometimes long-standing behaviors can actually create personal problems, cause relationship difficulties, and undermine the achievement of life goals. Working together, we can explore and identify these behaviors and change them. Individual Therapy helps to build confidence as you begin to understand and take steps to modify personal challenges. Couples Therapy identifies and builds upon personal and relationships strengths to repair interpersonal distress. Group Psychotherapy enhances and deepens personal awareness so you improve your connections with others.

I work with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, addictions, extreme emotionality and fears of abandonment. After 24 years as a counselor it’s clear to me that many symptoms originally seen as “ personality disorders “ or “mental health issues “ come from varying degrees of childhood trauma.I use Internal Family Systems to assist individuals and couples in being able to understand and be mindful of the past intruding on the present. I have a fairly direct approach. I also believe in healing body and mind, and as a RYT I’m able to address both.

When beginning therapy one should understand that the first session is utilized by both clinician and client to determine if the match is a good one. Also, new clients should not worry about sharing enough details. All that is required will come out naturally. Whether you are on welfare, drive a truck, or are a lawyer; in therapy everyone is the same. We all find ourselves, at times, facing problems we just can't resolve. Often the key lies in the subconscious mind. The structured nature of authentic psychotherapy leads to awareness and the opportunity to change one's life.

People seek therapy for a broad range of reasons, from dealing with anxiety or depression, coping with childhood trauma, managing stress, dealing with major life challenges, or simply wanting to achieve greater self-knowledge and personal growth. Regardless of the reasons, people want therapeutic intervention that is compassionate and non-judgmental. People want a provider who actively listens, appreciates a person's right to self-determination, and understands the importance of collaboration throughout the treatment process. Therapy is not about fixing what is broken, but about healing that which has been bruised and scarred.

I believe that as people become more accepting of themselves, they are more capable of finding happiness and contentment in their lives.

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.
