I am currently accepting new clients. I work with a diverse population of adults and young adults. We all experience major life transitions and can use support during stressful times. Some of us have also been traumatized by events/situations in our lives yet, we may not recognize the negative impact it’s having on our relationships and overall well being. Many of us simply go into auto pilot, fight or flight mode, become overwhelmed and struggle to cope.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by your emotions – or perhaps not feeling anything at all? Are you consumed with self-defeating thoughts? Are your coping skills causing more problems than helping? Are your relationships suffering? I believe that the person we were intended to be can become buried under life circumstances (both past and present), trauma, mental health challenges and substance abuse. Gaining insight to problematic thoughts and behaviors, learning healthy coping skills, and processing overwhelming feelings are just some of the ways therapy can help.

There is hope, even when we navigate life without an owner’s manual. We can learn how to understand our experiences and let go of anxiety, depression, trauma, and interpersonal troubles. A bottom-up approach to integrating body, mind, and soul is necessary to tackle a new way of thinking, being, and doing. We start by gently befriending our body sensations and emotions because we don’t do as we think, we do as we feel. In that way, we learn to connect to our inner wisdom, inherent power, and resilience and move towards our best selves. These potential lives in you. Connection and inner safety are our birthrights.

Sometimes in life we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed, stuck, confused and alone. Have you been trying to handle it all on your own but feel like you've reached a breaking point? Are you feeling that you just keep going in circles? Do you feel like no one understands you? Emotional suffering can come from a significant loss, trauma, struggles with relationships, or chronic high stress. Sometimes we may feel confused about what is actually causing our distressing feelings. These struggles are common and resolvable. Seeking caring support is a difficult and courageous decision. Therapy can be challenging but incredibly rewarding.

I believe each of us is on a path to fulfilling our highest potential. Sometimes along this path we are faced with very difficult circumstances with which we may not be well-equipped to cope. Sometimes unfortunate messages we received during childhood prevent us from taking bold action; interactions with others have been difficult and hurtful, preventing us from optimally relating to others; or we may have experienced horrific events that shake our confidence in ourselves. For these and many other potential reasons, we sometimes lose our way on becoming our highest and best selves.

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.
