"The opportunity to help you broaden your ideas of who you are and what you can be is undeniably my greatest reward. Twenty eight years of practice has taught me a great deal about people and how to help them. Feelings of unworthiness, hopelessness, shame or incompetence literally can begin to steal away your ability to recognize yourself and see your own strength, resilience, courage and competence. I know that you can experience your life as successful. It is my absolute belief that you can. Where I come in is to help you regain your own healthy, change-producing abilities.

Therapy can feel hard. That’s ok. The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone. My goal is to create a safe space where you can be yourself–a place where you won’t have to struggle with your thoughts and feelings in isolation. You may be here because you’re looking for symptom relief–you want to be comfortable in your own skin, feel better about your life. We’ll talk about your goals for therapy and explore creative ways to help you reach them. Because no one person is the same, there’s no one-size-fits-all therapy approach. You have unique needs, and we’ll collaborate so that your therapy journey feels tailored to you.

The most important aspect of therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. Having a good fit with a therapist creates comfort and safety. It is an incredible privilege to be a therapist and to be trusted with another’s private thoughts and feelings. I work with adults who struggle with anxiety, work stress, parenting, navigating relationships, and a host of life’s difficulties. My goal is to be a partner with those who recognize the need for help and want to make changes. I try to find those areas where people feel “stuck” and support them in taking risks to become “unstuck.”

These days people have more difficulties to face and fewer resources to assist in making sense of what is going on around them. Depression, anxiety, and addiction are all on the rise, which effect one's career, family life, and relationships. Constant demands of modern life often clouds the dreams and aspirations we once had. Our personal goals are hindered by our own demons or the damage of situations surrounded by hurt and disappointment outside of our control. Perhaps you are one of the many people in this country today dealing with debt, divorce, substance abuse, relational and family struggles.

Grief and loss are intrinsic in changes of life.

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.
