I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), National Certified Counselor (NCC), and Registered Play Therapist (RPT). I am skilled at working with the most challenging of children, ages 3 - 12. Their needs vary from trauma, anxiety, anger outbursts, adjustment problems, to grief/loss. Play Therapy is a researched approach that allows your child to take the lead in the session, while the therapist follows and interprets his/her play. Their self-paced process allows your child to work through issues without fear or trepidation. When he/she is ready to reconnect, the process is complete.

Hi, I'm Amy. Therapy is a way to honor and care for yourself and I'm glad that you are doing so. Whether you are going through a difficult time or your daily life has you unsettled, I am here to help. If you are "just getting through" each day and feeling overwhelmed, please know that I understand how that feels. If you are grieving a loss and finding it hard to cope, I have been there too. Life's inevitable difficulties brought me to a place that eventually inspired me to help others going through similar circumstances. My goal is to help you get through the hard stuff and find more peace and harmony in your life.

The overwhelming feeling of self-doubt, low self-esteem and concerns of failure are making you feel like you are drowning and have no way out. The simple tasks of daily life become hard to handle, getting out of bed is impossible and the constant worry, the inability to relax and the gut wrenching fear in your stomach seem to shatter your identity. You desperately want to feel better but you're afraid. Will you be able to trust someone without feeling judged? Will someone even be able to help?

I was struggling to cope with a disability, depression, and anger between the ages 16 to 23. I was in a car accident in 1999 that severely damaged my spinal cord and caused me to rely on the use of a wheelchair for the rest of my life. Building a relationship with God helped me to overcome my disability, depression and anger. It also gave me what I needed to live through my daily struggles. The spiritual exercises that have helped me during my process were prayer, meditation, reading scriptures, faith building, forgiveness, gratitude, and discussing my concerns with Christian counselors.

Hi! I'm Laura Joplin, LMSW, and my foundational therapeutic philosophy is that we don’t need to be fixed, but seen. I believe that the integration of somatic tools like yoga and meditation with classical talk therapy gives us room to understand this key truth. Sessions with me are a place to land amidst the swirl of life, develop skills for self-regulation and empowerment, form goals and intentions, and receive kind accountability around it all. I show up to session relaxed (comfy pants and flowy clothes!), warm and personable, humorous and acutely aware of the challenging environmental and structural circumstances we all face.

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.
