Taking who you are as an individual, I use different tools and theoretical approaches to empower my clients to use their gifts and abilities towards creating a healthier life.

Since 2012 I have worked with teens, adults, couples and families. My primary areas of focus include: teenagers who struggle with anxiety, depression and overall life stressors; families in relationship conflict; young adults; individuals processing through divorce, loss or grief as well as parents who are working to find a good co-parenting space whether they are under the same roof or not. I coordinate care with my fellow colleagues who may be working with different members of a family as well as the legal community working on behalf of parents and their children.

For the last ten years, I've worked with people who faced a traumatic event and with adults experiencing anxiety and depression due to circumstances, economic pressures, hatred, bullying, unhealthy relationships, just to mention a few. Today, I also apply therapy to people who encountered an unusual phenomena with lasting results such as a near death experience, after death communication, paranormal activity, or a UFO sighting. And since these experiences can generate deep change-positive or negative-I offer you the space for your own spiritual or mystical awakening.

My approach is to provide holistic care that focuses on three components of good health—the mind, body, and spirit. Instead of simply tolerating, slowing the progression of, or treating the symptoms of an illness, the purpose of therapy is to promote healing by treating the root causes. Through education, skills, connection, and lifestyle changes, I believe people can reclaim their health and regain control over their own wellbeing, and my goal is for you to leave therapy feeling self-empowered and resilient.

Have you ever known what you wanted but you just couldn’t figure out how to get there? I have had many moments in life where I felt stuck and could not seem to get past it on my own. Being in the client’s seat gave me the opportunity to realize just how much power and potential I hold, but needed help removing the obstacles in my path. I recognize that the client is the driver on their journey through life, but that I can come along and hold the map. I love meeting new people and being given the opportunity to help others realize their power and capability of living a fulfilled and positive life.

The challenges of life can be overwhelming, with anxiety, depression, stress, anger, abuse, hurt relationships, wounds from childhood experiences…. The list of the harms that we experience can feel endless. Relationship stress, with family and couple conflict is common. To counter this, communication, listening skills, and conflict resolution can be learned in therapy. Disagreements can become invitations to step into someone else’s shoes to gain their perspective, and for them to step into yours. Understanding and caring can deepen. The heart-changing gift of working through forgiveness and healing can lead to personal freedom.

Life can be a difficult journey at times, and during those times it can be helpful to have someone who can help by sharing the load. Regardless of what type of struggle or transition you are dealing with, we can work together to help you learn new ways of managing those tough times, which will allow you to develop skills for future reference as you continue to travel through life. Since I was a young child in Southeast Asia I have helped others, and it continues to be a passion of mine to this day. As a nurse and a counselor I have experience working with individuals from all walks of life including children through mature adults.

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.
