How long has it been since you truly felt like yourself? Like anxiety didn’t influence everything that you say or do? Since you didn’t feel chronically exhausted from constantly worrying about everyone else? You may have intrusive thoughts, have always considered yourself a perfectionist (even to a fault) or a people pleaser, spend hours on WebMD, Google, or worrying that your child will get hurt, or avoid more and more until your world feels small and scary. The things that once brought you joy and fulfillment have vanished from most of your waking hours until you don't even recognize yourself or your life anymore.

People seek out therapy for a wide variety of reasons. Sometimes, the issues they are struggling with start out minor and they want help before the issues become too difficult. On other occasions, the problems have become unmanageable and dealing with them alone becomes too daunting. Some of those personal issues include anxiety, depression, stress at home, school and/or work, emotional dysregulation, among others. Therapy can help get a handle on any of those issues to help people carry on with every day living in a more productive fashion.

Relationships can get tricky at times, and when it becomes too difficult to figure out how to resolve it, seeing a professional trained to help couples and families can be very helpful. Trauma from our past can also affect present romantic, platonic and/or professional relationships. I believe that I am the counselor to help you address those issues and/or concerns if you are ready. It is important for me to let you to know that I will never force an issue to be discussed that you do not feel comfortable discussing.

I believe we are all inherently capable of change, especially when we acknowledge where we're falling short with our core values. I help guide people to make positive life changes by examining values and setting realistic goals for self-improvement. If you're not looking to set many goals, therapy is also just a safe space to process feelings you wouldn't otherwise process. I have done extensive work with general adult mental health and substance abuse, and I enjoy an integration of various holistic approaches to therapy. I value and respect all walks of life and take a culturally-sensitive approach.

I am here for you to show up as you are. We work together to figure out what you need to meet your goals or release the pressure. Everyone knows what is best for themself and their family. My belief about children (and the rest of us) is that behavior is communication. Being triggered means our brain is telling us there is more healing to be done. Tuning into our bodies and listening to our authentic selves is vital to living a healthy life. I am also a huge supporter of harm reduction, exploring how society impacts us (because we don’t live in a vacuum), radical self-acceptance, and nurturing our inner child.

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.
