Life has thrown you yet another curve ball. The rug has once again been pulled out from under you. You confide in your friends, family, or co-workers, but their advice only leaves you feeling more alone. If you could just get past the past, or feel less, life would be so much easier, right? Adult children of emotional neglectful or immature parents, often suffer from common feelings of disconnection and depression, fears of rejection or abandonment, overwhelming anxiety and anger, struggles with boundaries and co-dependency or enmeshment. These wounds can be healed and you CAN move forward in your life.

Ongoing frustration, worry, sadness, tension, relationship conflict, or disinterest in things that used to give you joy are signs that your life really wants your attention! Distress may drive you to seek relief, but may also indicate your readiness for change.

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.

People come to a counselor for a myriad of reasons, but usually not without having tried to solve their problems or resolve their conflicts on their own. It can be difficult to admit that you need help and even harder still to ask for it. If the way forward seems unclear, then counseling may be the next step on your pathway to healing. My clients come with issues ranging from mood disorders (i.e. anxiety, depression) to trauma. They have personal and/or relationship struggles.

Relationships are hard! The drama and emotional roller coaster are exhausting. After trying diligently to give all that you can, you end up dumped, rejected, or betrayed again. Beating yourself up, inevitably feeling unlovable. So you hide your emotions and stay busy to protect yourself. But inside, it's impossible to ignore that sadness and loneliness are growing. All you want is someone who cares and who can be there for you. But it's hard to attract the right person. Your friends are moving on with their lives, while you wonder if happiness just wasn't meant for you. You're so tired of trying that you feel resentful and empty.

Thank you for your interest in my practice. Choosing the right therapist is an important decision. Research shows that the therapeutic relationship is one of the strongest predictors of successful treatment, more so than the techniques or modalities utilized. There is bravery in seeking support, and a critical component in growth is being honest with ourselves about strengths, struggles, and goals. Many clients seek therapy with me to work on issues relating to anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, relationship conflicts, communication, boundary setting, emotional expression, and general life difficulties.

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.
