I became a therapist because I believe in the power of healing and growth through our personal stories in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space. As a therapist, it is my goal to create a space where I can provide a compassionate and empathetic listening ear while my client navigates through their personal story. I believe that people are experts in their life and each person has their own strengths we can use to implement new strategies for change and growth. Everyone experiences stress, overwhelming emotions, and various forms of trauma throughout life.

I believe that healing is not only an individual journey but also a collective one. My approach to therapy is holistic and transpersonal, which acknowledges the interconnectedness of all things and focuses on mind, body, and energy/spirit together. Sessions are always client-centered - whatever feels most central to you and your life is what we focus on. I often bring in somatic practices to foster self-awareness. This means we may work on identifying signals from your body that can help you with emotional regulation and building resilience in the face of challenges.

Parenthood can be full of wonders and woes. Along the way you could experience infertility, loss, or birth trauma. Sometimes you bypass (or go through) those experiences only to find yourself right smack dab in the middle of postpartum anxiety or depression. I became a therapist to support parents, so they know someone is always in their corner. If you currently experience any of these situations, or if you have in the past and they continue to stick with you, I’d love to help you work through the sticking parts.

My goal is to create a space where clients can feel comfortable and empowered to explore who they are so that they may become their authentic self. I am a strong believer in the relationship between therapist and client being a collaborative one, where you have just as much of a say in your treatment and will always be met from a place of non-judgment and curiosity. As a neurodivergent, queer woman, I understand all too well how difficult it can be to find real affirming care and just how relieving it is to find someone who actually "gets it." I aim to work from an antiracist, intersectional, sex positive, antiableist perspective.

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.
