A wise prophet once said "life as a shorty shouldn't be so rough". Considering the turmoil that we face in our world today, I'd say those sentiments still resonate. From Inflation to war; mass shootings to racial injustice, It seems that the list of problems are endless. Combine those issues with family drama, church hurt, marriage conflict, and challenges at work...well, you my friend have a recipe for an implosion! You've seen the signs, that's why you're here. The irritability, ghosting, distance from family and friends, racing thoughts, anxiousness. You know that you have to do something before you explode!

Are you having moments of feeling unlike yourself lately? Unable to focus long enough to complete a task and not enough time for anything. At this moment, breastfeeding is not working in your favor and perhaps you're feeling inadequate as a mother overall. Chronic fatigue and sleep deprivation is real and being new to motherhood can place the best of us under pressure to get everything right, right? I hear that you're dealing with a lot of competing demands; caring for your children, balancing work obligations and all while attempting to fill your own cup too.

Overall, I consider therapy to be a beginning point for personal change. My counseling philosophy is built around the principle that understanding a patient in the context of the surroundings that influenced their development is elemental to the therapeutic process. I utilize an integrative approach, combining Behavioral, Interpersonal, and Psychodynamic techniques. During sessions, I will assist in identifying and challenging self-limiting patterns, healing from past experiences, and gaining insight into how the unconscious influences behavior.

If you have found yourself seeking out a therapist it may be fair to believe you've experienced moments when you've found yourself struggling with stress related to family, finances or relationships? Struggling to find a work/life balance? Feeling "stuck" after a big life change? Or notice things from your past continue to get in the way for you?

Maybe you go to the grocery store and it’s so people-y that you feel like you’re going to have a panic attack because you’re still not quite used to being around so many people at once. Or maybe you are struggling with grief and you don’t know how to live without the person you lost. Maybe you don’t enjoy things anymore and the people you love keep asking you what’s wrong and you don’t know how to answer them.

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.
