Do you desire deep and meaningful relationships? Are you looking for genuine closeness and connection but being held back by the fear of rejection? It's normal to want to feel safe and understood in relationships if you're a human. I know how daunting and disheartening it can be to navigate relationships when past experiences have left you feeling wounded and distrustful. I work with clients who feel "lost," lonely, or even resentful on their journeys through life, be it new parenthood, loss of a loved one, new job, memories from past trauma, or significant life adjustment.

I think the ideal client is one who would enjoy working with me and who shares the same values, beliefs, and goals, who would feel comfortable working with me, and who would benefit from my services. Some of their issues could be one of many, for example, they have anxiety and anger that's taken over in every area of their life. They need to have a vision for freedom that keeps them out of bondage. To have a safe place to express their feelings. This involves having understanding, empathy, and support of one another. They want someone who can enhance their potential and have a healthy life, with less anxiety. Nothing is impossible.

There is very little in this world worth having that will not cause us to struggle and struggling does not mean that there is anything wrong with us. I believe that there is nothing more fulfilling than making a connection that costs us a little bit of vulnerability but leaves both of us feeling a brighter sense of hope. I also believe that our agency can carry us out of whatever rut that other forces might have left us in and that persisting in simple changes can help us get unstuck. If you feel stressed, overwhelmed, confused, alone, sad, or frustrated, there may be things about yourself that you can learn from and resolve.

Let's face it, therapy sucks. It's uncomfortable, it's confronting, and it can dredge up emotions we'd rather keep buried. But amidst the discomfort lies an opportunity for profound growth and healing. Therapy isn't about wallowing in misery; it's about bravely facing the demons that hold us back and emerging stronger on the other side. It's a journey of self-discovery, guided by a compassionate professional who offers insight, support, and tools to navigate life's challenges. So, while it may not always be easy, the rewards of therapy are immeasurable – a clearer mind, a lighter heart, and the freedom to live authentically.

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.
