Marriage can be Joyful or Disappointing - I find it's usually not the Marriage, but the Two People in it! As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I have worked with couples for over 40 years to restore their marriage & to meet their own individual needs. Trauma, infidelity, arguments, in-laws, parenting, depression, grief, chronic illness, substance abuse takes its toll. With a focused interview of the couple & each spouse I quickly analyze and discover where the Real Issues lie. With a collaborative approach, we can unwind years of wounds & scars and begin to rebuild a mutually secure and satisfying relationship for you.

When patients ask, “What can you tell me about your practice?" I say I am very comfortable working with adults-18 and older, couples, children and families. The patients I see in my practice are wanting help with issues of anger and stress; anxiety, panic and phobias; grief and depression; life-cycle changes; relationship issues; career challenges; and self-esteem. Coordination of care with other medical professionals is an important part of my practice and allows for opportunities to develop a comprehensive care approach to your treatment.

As a therapist, I believe our lives are made up of relationships - relationship with others, with the world around us, and with ourselves. When we feel "out of whack," this is one sign that at least one of these relationships needs our attention. Therapy is an excellent avenue to examine and explore these connections. My practice is rooted in client-centered approaches. While I use cognitive behavioral, motivational, and mindfulness-based techniques - each session is tailored to meet you right where you are that day. My hope is that you feel safe and affirmed during all interactions.

Feeling disconnected can happen in any loving relationship. Sometimes couples find themselves in patterns that leave them feeling stuck, frustrated, and unsure of what to do next. Through EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), couples can restructure their bond by learning to reach and respond in new ways. While experiencing relationship distress, couples often struggle to turn toward one another and utilize each other as a resource for strength and healing. Couple therapy can be the perfect place to find your way back to your partner.

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.
