As a clinical counselor and pastor I value creating space for intentional listening to discover and discern how personal uniqueness can find expression within the contours of life. I work collaboratively with individuals, families and adolescents to grow awareness around the stories we tell ourselves. Sometimes these are strong, positively thick stories, and I enjoy celebrating progression with another when this occurs. More often than not in counseling, I find that our normal human experiences bring with them the challenge of embracing life as it actually is.

You’re discouraged that life isn’t measuring up to what you had hoped. You fake it so it seems like you have it all together, but you feel dissatisfied, hopeless, and empty. Feeling disconnected from the most important people in your life, and even from yourself has really taken its toll. I’m here to help. Life's hard and it’s easy to get caught up in the busyness, losing sight of what really matters. It becomes more characterized by depression, anxiety, conflict, loneliness, and addiction; more so than the peace and fulfillment that is desired. Distressing feelings like these is likely what brought you here, hoping for help!

Life can be overwhelming for many of us and things can become out of balance in our lives. When this happens you may need to connect with another human being, a professional who can really listen, provide perspective and honor you in your journey. Which may include resolving difficulty in relationships, healing from trauma, stabilizing and enhancing mental health and wellbeing, strengthening a sense of identity and finding an overall sense of "wholeness", growth and peace. As a clinician my goal is to connect with the strengths already within my clients, to facilitate change and to provide expertise that is meaningful.

You've just found out your partner has betrayed you and you feel shocked and heartbroken. Research and reading countless articles and books to try and make sense out of it hasn’t worked and you're still hurting. It’s lonely and feels hopeless. You see your friends and wonder if you are the only one that's been betrayed. On the outside, no one would ever know, but on the inside, you fear your relationship never be the same and it has to be something you learn to accept. The frustrating part is that you had no idea and were completely blindsided. You thought you knew who your partner is, but now you're questioning everything.

Life’s challenges and breached relationships often leave us feeling weighed down. Layers of experiences leave us wondering if there is potential to feel something other than “stuck” or “lost”. It is easily overwhelming to wade through relational issues, life transitions or traumatic experiences. My hope and focus is to provide a safe environment that empowers you to a place of knowing that you already have the tools needed to begin to lift the weight. I collaborate with clients with a peaceful, authentic, and nonjudgmental approach as we seek to journey through these numerous concerns.

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.
