Therapy should be more than telling yourself that things are okay when they're not. Therapy can bring healing to wounds that have lasted for years, and finding the right therapist for you is an important first step in that process. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, trauma, difficult relationships, and identity challenges. As a trauma survivor myself, I understand both the depths of despair and the struggle to find yourself amid all your pain and loss. Don't give up on therapy if you've had bad or less-than-ideal experiences with therapy in the past. Each therapist is different, and you can find the right one for you.

Positive change is possible when a person is provided the tailored support needed to draw upon their own strengths and insight. There is value in knowing and treating the whole person and I focus on the diverse set of characteristics and circumstances that can both create life challenges and be better understood to overcome personal obstacles. Skill building to address mental health needs, increasing confidence and self-esteem, and creating targeted goals are primary elements of my practice.

My goal is to provide affordable counseling in an informal, friendly and confidential atmosphere-to create a safe place to talk about any concern-including topics such as stress, worry, sadness, loss, relationship difficulties, adjustment challenges, troublesome behavior patterns, life crises or trauma experiences. Some people seek help because they need a neutral sounding board. Others feel stuck or face issues that interfere with their ability to feel happy and productive. I believe in helping through a compassionate, strengths-based approach so that individuals can find solutions to their problems and develop a deeper understanding of themselves.

I have practiced psychotherapy since 1971, with a special interest in the emotional and relationship problems of adults and couples. I work with adults in acute distress as well as those with persisting difficulties that interfere with effective functioning and the full enjoyment of adult life. I ESPECIALLY WORK WITH COUPLES WHO ARE UNHAPPY IN THEIR MARRIAGE. In my view, emotionally committed relationships tend to be A HOTBED FOR REACTIVATION OF UNFINISHED BUSINESS from the past that can produce unexpected misery.

I am passionate about the work that I do: helping others enhance their lives in meaningful and lasting ways. You might feel stuck--maybe exhausted--from a struggle with anxiety, stress, and/or depression, leading to a less fulfilling and smaller world around you. Many of us never learned what to do with emotionally or physically distressing experiences; in fact, we're often told to "get over it", "don't worry," or "just do it," which is rarely helpful. It is possible, however, that despite your best efforts, the ways that you are reacting to painful thoughts, emotions, or sensations could actually be increasing your suffering.

I believe that when we understand the layers and unfolding of our own complex stories, we can find compassion, empathy, and inner peace more easily. In my practice, I aim to create a safe, trusting space for every client, where we can work towards identifying and facing your concerns; discovering and cultivating your strengths; and ultimately, developing deeper empathy for yourself and others. Our work together could be brief, and focus on a few distinct concerns; alternatively, it could be longer-term, and focus on uncovering and processing the underlying causes of several issues.

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.
