I often work with people who experience anxiety, depression, and unwanted coping behaviors that can come with life transitions, shame, grief, attachment and trauma. These are things that can affect relationships along with performance in work, school, sports or creative outlets.

Empowered therapy for people with big feels: I offer virtual, office, and outdoor psychotherapy services that are tailored specifically for individuals who deeply experience emotions. I see children ages 8+ and adults. You or your child might be feeling out of control (such as engaging in self harm or experiencing intense anxiety), out of place (uncertain about who you are or where you belong), shame, perpetually invalidated by society or relationships, or have a loud inner critic. People are usually a good fit when they're seeking connection, interested in experiencing life outside the box, and open to embracing their unique self.

The population of people who I have been highly successful working with tend to suffer from anxiety, depression, and grief symptoms, AND feel comfortable with virtual counseling. My ability to create a trusting atmosphere that is genuine and caring, as I greatly value each person and see that individual as an expert in their own life, has been a very effective strategy for people who, many times, feel as if they have not been heard or whose voices or views have not been valued.

By looking backward, I can begin to live forward by becoming who I really am. Attachment shapes behavior and thinking. Survival skills from earlier life become maladaptive barriers to growth. Addiction and mental health problems often reflect a False Self. If I have the courage to confront the masking qualities of this False Self, I am ready for change and to allow the True Self, my authentic and spiritual nature, to emerge. While we cannot make these changes alone, readiness is indicated by my willingness to engage beyond therapy in Twelve Step programs or other means of engaging with others.

You may also feel like the tools that used to help you manage everything just aren’t cutting it anymore.

Therapy can be a safe space for you to sort through outside pressure and expectations and help you find new tools to enhance your coping so you can get back to feeling like yourself.

Do you feel powerless over your thoughts & feelings but do not know where to begin to identify the reasons you feel this way? It can feel like you have been dealing with the same issues over & over with no solution. You may have even tried different coping skills but nothing seems to get to that root cause, which I believe must be addressed. As a psychotherapist who specializes in Addiction, Trauma and PTSD I understand that we avoid many memories from the past due to pain, fear, sadness, etc. However, these memories we avoid are the reason we are feeling stuck right now.

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.
