You thought your hard work and training would be enough to make you excel but here you are, once again, underwhelmed by your results. You've tried putting in more effort; working harder than before to improve but let's face it - it's not doing the trick. The anxiety and self-doubt creeps in: "Am I actually good enough?", "Should I just quit?", "Will this ever get better?". The uncertainty continues to grow and you feel like you're underwater, choking at the most unideal times.

Whatever your goals might be, being in therapy forever is not one of them! As an experienced therapist, with a directive and compassionate style, we will work together so that you can get the most out of your time in therapy. I view my clients as individuals and not a number or a diagnosis, each with a unique set of circumstances and challenges. Using an evidence based foundation, I tailor my approach to these specific needs and identities. I enjoy working with individuals who are ready to move past trauma, grief, mood disorders or relationship issues in a collaborative and pragmatic process.

Do you ever feel like you’re knee deep in…stuff? Now you’re here, shopping for a therapist, which is probably not how you’d like to be spending your time (that Netflix won’t watch itself). Let's be honest, seeing all those letters after someone's name looks impressive but what good is alphabet soup if that person doesn’t “get” you. You need someone who you can be real with, who'll be there with you through "the suck." I'm an AF veteran who's been through “the suck” many times before and am now here to help guide you through this journey.

I am passionate about working with professionals in safety sensitive occupations to prioritize their own healthcare by removing internal and external barriers to achieve mental health and recovery. For the last several years, I have focused my practice on treating healthcare professionals, first responders, and executives. In busy careers, it is easy to place others before ourselves. Therapy is a brave step in learning to find balance in all our identities.

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.
