First, I want to congratulate you for taking the first step in taking authority over your healing and wholeness journey. The stressors of life is a lot to manage alone at times. It takes a lot of strength to recognize and seek help to not just survive in this thing called life, but to also thrive. As a clinician, I help navigate clients through past and present experiences and assist in crafting a better future by working collectively with individuals (adolescents and adults), couples, and families. I provide my clients with practical coping skills to manage the challenges of life and unlearn unhealthy defense mechanisms.

Wouldn't it be nice to have an eraser for the drawing of life? If it were a map the roads would double back, go in circles for miles, and have multiple dead ends. Most roads would traverse through hills, valleys, caves, and mountain tops. Norman Cousins once said, "Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live". Families and individuals alike can be greatly affected by the transitions of life. Whether it is a deployment, birth, or difficult diagnosis, these are the events that shape us. They make us who we are.

I'm a Licensed Psychologist and enjoy working with adults of all ages. I find that I am most helpful to clients who are interested in reflecting more deeply on what it means to be human, in all of its suffering and all of its beauty. My intention is to provide a relationship in which we can identify and explore the narratives you have about your life and self. And then in the safety of our relationship, I want us to begin the process of deconstructing what has been and start reconstructing what is to come. Through this process, I believe we will find acceptance and healing.

Picking the right therapist isn’t easy. It’s not like some things where you can just google “Best Vacuum” and get a top ten list. If only it worked that way! Then again, maybe it shouldn’t. Therapy is a relationship and like all relationships, not everyone is a good match. We do get a sense when someone is (potentially at least!) right, and trusting that gut feeling is a good place to start. Honestly, I think reading something like this can give you an ok first impression, but nothing beats actually hearing someone’s voice, seeing their face. Then you can really know if you feel safe and are able to be yourself. That's so important.

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.
