Call for an appointment if you struggle with ADHD, anxiety, chronic illness, surgery preparation, prenatal or postpartum depression, relationship challenges, stress management, life skills, life transitions, insomnia, or want to create a healthier lifestyle. I blend Eastern philosophy with Western psychology in my holistic practice. If you have tried traditional therapy and have not found relief, I'd love the opportunity to help you become the best version of yourself. I regret to inform potential clients that I have been and continue to be on medical leave. I will update you when I can practice again. Thanks

When unspeakable traumas happen - whether in the present or years in the past - people don't know where to turn. My specialties are trauma, particularly sexual assault and abuse; difficult life transitions; and problem relationships. We all face unexpected life challenges. They can look like a move away from family, divorce, estrangement from loved ones or friends, becoming empty nesters, or taking a job we don't like. Dysfunctional relationships may be found in our families, friend groups, work, or other organizations. Suffering in silence isn't the answer. I offer clients techniques in the first session to help relieve suffering.

Humanity thrives through relationships, yet these same relationships often spawn challenges creating various levels and types of mental distress. Mental distress leads to second guessing, criticism of self and others, even hopelessness. As a result, gaining a guide to support personal navigation through the situational dynamics are desired in order to gain insight and skills to be confident in steps forward to a better life.

You feel isolated, alone, and in a constant state of anxiety and dread. You know that masking your true self to fit in can only get you so far. It takes a lot of energy to mask and only leads to more emotional exhaustion. To cope with this burnout and exhaustion, maybe you binge your favorite show on Netflix, or listen to your favorite album on a loop just to reclaim any ounce of mental energy back. Maybe it is other things to numb out the pain, that we have all done, like drinking alcohol. It is that feeling of safety, connectivity, and belonging that we are all searching for, but it can so hard to find on our own.

Hello, welcome to my page; I am the founder of StayWell Counseling. I offer tele-therapy services for both adolescents and adults. The most commonly reported concern I treat is anxiety. I approach both the mind and body when in treatment for anxiety. Learning about your behaviors/reactions and how to rationalize distorted beliefs are vital (cognitive approach), but this is just as important as learning to regulate your nervous system (body approach). Sometimes our fight or flight response is effecting our ability to pump the breaks and re-evaluate our reactions.

I have counseling experience working with a diverse clientele within the adult population. I serve adults in different stages of life, as well as religions backgrounds. I believe that all people have an innate desire to have a fulfilling and purposeful life. Inevitable stress, anxiety, crisis, trauma, and sadness that accompany life can leave unhealed wounds and drive human beings to develop healthy and unhealthy coping mechanisms, as well as perceptions about life that serve to protect them against future hardships. However, unhealthy coping strategies can continue to cause problems in our lives.

When faced with anxiety or depression, you often wonder if there is anything you can do to truly feel better or transform yourself. It seems like you’ve tried everything, and nothing has worked. Mood issues are causing other issues -trouble relating with others, over/under eating, problems with work or family relationships or even more serious issues. At times, relationship struggles leave you wondering "should I stay or go?" but it can be hard to navigate this alone. The "real you" is in there, but hard to find.

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.
