Relationships can be the most important things in our lives and they can also be our greatest struggles. Sex is another important topic-our own sexual selves as well as our sexual relationships with others. But we don't always have a lot of places to talk about these important issues. This is why I specialize in relationship and sex therapy. I am a Certified Sex Therapist through AASECT and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I also offer online classes for couples and individuals at classes.laurarademacher.com.

Hi! I’m Emma - I’m a licensed therapist for teens and adults. My aim in therapy is to build a warm relationship that welcomes you to bring your full authentic self into our sessions; yes, even the big feelings, jokes, special interests, and unfiltered thoughts. Together, we might find some tools to help navigate change, mental health challenges or process hurtful experiences from the past. I feel passionate about taking a holistic approach that supports individuals who feel burnt out and want to restore a sense of balance and contentment. My practice is trauma- informed and LGBTQ+ & Neurodivergent affirming.

I imagine you're seeking a psychotherapist for counseling because you hope to make some important changes. Success working with a psychologist depends on you feeling comfortable engaging in a collaborative manner with her. Some therapy sessions may be difficult as you ask important questions about yourself, how you function in the world. As you proceed, you may experience frustration, confusion, anxiety, self-doubt and/or conflicted feelings, but at the end of your psychotherapy you'll most likely have learned something new to help you with the concerns that brought you in to seek psychological treatment.

Have you been feeling dissatisfied or discouraged in your day-to-day life? Do you feel like what you are doing falls short of what you want to accomplish? This can be pretty demoralizing, and it is not uncommon to keep doing what you are doing in the hopes that things will change or get better. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Hoping for change is not enough for most people, and while there is comfort in knowing what to expect, it doesn’t get you any closer to the life that you deserve.

Parenting is hard and when your little one is struggling it is hard to know what to do or where to go. I approach working with kids and families in a gentle and playful way. My style is to work with parents and kids to create meaning and understanding behind behaviors. I predominately use play with kids under 11 to help them tell their stories. Parents are collaborators in children's therapy, as they are agents of change and are their child's biggest advocates.

Unleash your inner mermaid. Like a mermaid, you were born wondrous and whole, with awe-inspiring potential. Perhaps, like her, trauma hides your power, voice, and sense of magic; tries to cut you off from true self, body, community, and nature’s rhythms; tells oppressive stories that serve to keep you “in your place,” lost, lonely, ashamed, fearful, unfulfilled, or hating your body. The mermaid reclaims her birthright and returns to her community– stronger and more magnificent than ever. You, too, can lay that colonizing fear “am I enough?” in its watery grave, re-discover your voice, step into your wild power, and trust yourself.

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.
