My approach to counseling closely mirrors my view of life: there is no one-size-fits-all answer. I use a multifaceted approach to counseling, pulling from the core theoretical approaches of CBT, Person-Centered, and DBT. I believe that as humans, we were created for connection with others. We all experience unexpected circumstances that make life challenging, and attempting to balance life's challenges on our own can be confusing and frustrating. I focus on helping my clients discover their self-worth and core values in order to help them build a life they are proud of.

During this pandemic/quarantine, so many people have been affected by loss and grief. My main focus lately has been helping people who are grieving loss. Grief is often a lonely journey, and those who are not grieving wonder why you aren't "over it" yet. People grieve in many ways and heal on their own timetable. I help clients in their grief journey in a way that makes sense to them without judgment or trying to rush them along.

We all have aspects of our personalities that have been repressed, ignored, or unrealized, and this can cause painful psychological distress. When these aspects are brought to the surface in a safe, caring therapeutic environment, they can be addressed and integrated, resulting in a more fully realized human. This is what I do.

It is an honor and a privilege to witness the healing process as it unfolds within individuals who enter psychotherapy. I truly believe that each of us have the power to reach our full potential. When we care for ourselves, we are able to have much deeper and more meaningful relationships with others. I work with people who have chronic mental illness and those who have experienced trauma or need support in stressful situations. I also help people who want to get to know themselves better or have a deeper understanding of self. I often refer to the unconscious and attachment relationships to help people gain insight.

I believe that we are created with potential for balance and harmony, however, life is not always easy, we may struggle at times to reach this balance. When we get "stuck" or face difficult challenges, we must first identify which areas of life need adjusting or strengthening, and then, we set out to make the necessary changes. Whether it is physical, emotional, spiritual or mental unbalance, we can positively impact our lives by starting to work in one area, and, since they are all connected, the rest will follow. The mind-body connection is undeniable, research and science favor an integrated approach to behavioral health.

One of the greatest things about life is the opportunity we have to truly discover ourselves whether it is alone or through close relationships. However, sometimes we get lost and we may feel alone, anxious, depressed, stressed, unimportant, alone or feel disconnected from the world. As much as we try to reach for life it can sometimes feel strange to feel or explain what is going on with us but counseling gives you the opportunity to feel safe. Seeking out help makes you strong, and gives you power to face your fears. This process may feel intimidating, but I strive to make counseling fit each persons unique experience.

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.
