If you are a female over 30, and experiencing chronic stress or unhealed trauma it's likely affecting your mood, relationships, mind and body. Your mind, body and heart might feel out of synch. It is really common to find unresolved trauma as a major cause of depression or anxiety. That can shift! I offer approaches to unwind stress, and learn to decode your own body's alarm system, so that you have room to naturally feel more ease, a sense of aliveness, and joy. Being in a female body, you also have cycles and hormone shifts that shouldn't be ignored, and change over time. Your whole experience is relevant and included in therapy.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or constantly overthinking? Are you someone who tends to get lost in work, caregiving, or the fast pace rate of life that you forget to focus on yourself? Does taking time for yourself feel like a foreign activity? Do you desire to find your sense of purpose again? To learn to slow down and exist in the here and now for a while. Perhaps you are ready to process the loss of a loved one, to find peace with grief or unexpected news. Perhaps seek support in your own end of life journey, to explore the process of death and dying and the thoughts and emotions that may come.

Most of the kids, teens, families and adults I have helped over the years have felt stuck, unsure, lost, angry, anxious and pained by what has happened to them in their life. I have helped people that have experienced intimate partner violence, family violence, sexual abuse, neglect, and many other experiences in early childhood/adulthood. I can help you or your child find relief in current symptoms, understanding the many layers of hard experiences, making those feelings and experiences smaller, find peace, and feel safe and okay in life again. We all need a space to feel heard, seen, and noticed.

I want you to know what an important step you are taking to make changes in your life. Counseling can be amazing and scary at times but well worth the effort you put into it. Choosing a counselor is the first step in taking charge of your emotional health. I believe that our mind, body, and soul are connected and when one is out of step, the others are too. Life can be rough at times but I would love to help you through it. I also conduct speaking engagements to educate different groups on mental health topics.

On the outside it seems like you have it all together, but inside it feels like you are falling apart. You’re tired of lacking confidence in yourself and feeling alone in your struggles. You feel guilty about the frustration and overwhelm you feel each day. It’s like you’re the one carrying all the weight. You’ve worked hard for success, but you aren't living the authentic life you hoped for, and you’ve basically resigned yourself to the idea that you may never find the fulfillment in relationships that you’ve found in your career.

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.
