You are here because you are feeling stuck, afraid, desperate, lost, or engaging in excessive overthinking and negative thoughts. Making the decision to start therapy is one of the toughest, scariest, and most intimidating choices to make in life, so I would like to be the first to congratulate you on taking this “leap of faith” and starting your healing journey. My treatment focuses primarily on treating children (10 years and older), adolescents, young adults, and adults with past trauma, depression, low self-esteem, college/student issues, grief, and women's issues.

As a therapist I believe in coming along side another and providing the support that is needed to move forward and be comfortable with being you. I believe that everyone deserves to have a safe space to process, not be judged, and receive support. I understand how it feels to be misunderstood and to want to move forward and not know the first step.

My passion as a Sexual Addiction Therapist comes from a life-long struggle with my sexual addiction. From a very young age, I entered a highly sexualized world, including sexual abuse by five different men from age five to fourteen. All of these men played a significant and trusting role in my life. When I was eleven years old, losing my father to emphysema forced me to grow up overnight into an overcompensating perfectionist. Perfect student, perfect son, and later a perfect member of the United States Air Force created an unsustainable persona.

Struggling with “living life on life’s terms”? With all the stressors that arise while we are attempting to ‘adult’, sometimes we need a listening ear, fresh ideas, or a push in a new direction. If it’s true that it takes a village to raise a child, then shouldn’t we build a stronger village? If everyday life has you stressed, overwhelmed, confused and hopeless, and in need of a new direction or fresh start, perhaps embarking on a journey of skill building, goal setting and new direction will give you purpose and the energy to improve your current situation.

Feeling lost and overwhelmed by all the decisions and choices you are faced with daily can be stressful and exhausting, and stress can be magnified by the constant changes everyone experiences. These changes in relationships, your roles in school or workplace, family situations, and demands from others can all make you feel anxious, depressed...helpless. For some, the current health crisis has brought about changes that added isolation and loneliness to the mix. An increase in substance use in an effort to feel better is not unusual, but may add even more pressure to strained coping abilities.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

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.

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.

What type of therapist is right for me?

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.

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 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.

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.
