Not currently accepting new clients. My approach to counseling is "It is much easier to move a couch into an upstairs apartment with someone on the other end of it." What I mean by this is that we experience situations that can be very challenging to deal with on our own. We often struggle with wanting to be our authentic selves, in finding our individual purpose, and in healing from our past traumas. We want to improve our self concept, our daily functioning and our relationships. Most issues become much more manageable with someone there to “help carry some of the weight.” This is what I attempt to do as a therapist.

I am an affirming, sex positive, tattooed, feminist therapist, who specializes in working within the LGBTQIA+ community- allies always welcome as well! I am also working toward becoming specialized in working with women during pregnancy and postpartum. Being vulnerable with a complete stranger is WEIRD at first, but I am here to meet you exactly where you are, as exactly who you are, to help navigate through all of life's bullshit. You can expect me to be very casual in approach, style, and language, so seriously, come as you are. Think therapy with a little cursing, infinite acceptance, and a leather jacket rather than a cardigan.

Therapy can be a daunting task. It is my goal to help you address the issues you are seeking help for and give you real life techniques to use in your therapeutic process. I tend toward cognitive behavioral and solution focused therapies but recognize that everyone is unique and may require different approaches. I have significant experience working with emotionally/behaviorally disturbed children, abused children/adolescents and adult survivors of trauma. I tend to view therapy as a process. I believe it is important to meet people where they are so they can fully embrace the changes they seek to make.

Are you seeking change? What would your life look like if your magic wand was working? What is in the way of living the most effective life possible? Is it your belief system, your behavior? Is it a situation, a relationship or an unmet need? Building a strong relationship with yourself is the foundation for effective living. Self esteem is a result of knowing yourself, growing yourself and accepting your true self. It requires honesty, willingness and discomfort. The most effective way to change someone else's behavior is to change your own. Nothing changes if nothing changes.

Having a hard time trusting yourself or feeling confident? It can be extremely difficult in a world full of opinions and pressures of your family, friends, society, and don’t forgot social media. It may leave you feeling like the universe is against you, like you think you’re doing everything “right” but everything feels so “wrong.” Imagine a life with freedom from the opinions and judgements of others. It can be a painful and daunting task to separate your beliefs/values from those around you, this is called healthy detachment. This is not a selfish endeavor as many may think; it is the path to self-love and inner peace.

I enjoy supporting folks who are struggling with issues around life direction and finding meaning. In this late stage of capitalism, many people are suffering the consequences of understandable responses to negative life situations and the burdens imposed by modern society. As a therapist, I see myself not as a distant expert but as a fellow human who has also experienced existential anxiety and fear. I strive to guide others through the difficult process of accepting and living with the inevitabilities of human life. Ultimately, I believe lasting health and wholeness come from living an embodied and authentic life.

Despite our strengths we can feel stuck, unable to move forward with a life that aligns with our goals and values. We often continue using coping skills that were once helpful but now no longer help move us through the more challenging and unexpected issues in our lives. Together we identify these familiar yet unproductive styles of coping with compassion. I use techniques that approach difficult thoughts and feelings without fearing, fighting or running from them while being able to address them with acceptance.

The bravery it takes to begin therapy is often underestimated. So is the pain. That pain is often a symptom of a psychological wound that needs to be treated with care and attentiveness. Working with me feels similar to physical therapy: soothing at times and challenging at others, but ultimately, healing.

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.
