I am a licensed psychotherapist studying psychology, psychotherapy, and its intersection with spirituality for almost a decade. We all experience anxiety and depression, and life loses meaning at different times, leaving us feeling stuck and without direction. All these symptoms are our soul's way of calling us back home to ourselves when we are astray too far and/or too long from our true selves. Psychotherapy is one of the first steps to finding our way back home. Only when we are at home within ourselves, we begin to feel at home in the world.

I love working with individual clients of all ages. I worked with children as a teacher for years, using humor and play, but I realized the relationship is really what I valued about the work; so I left teaching and became a counselor! Through humor and compassion, my style is up front, working side-by-side with clients of all ages. In addition to talk therapy, we might also use expressive arts, play, or incorporation of other activities based on whatever the client needs.

Asking for help is an act of courage and an important step in the process of healing. As a therapist that has worked with teens and young adults for years, I have witnessed the power of therapy at a critical time of development. At this age when we are trying to find ourselves, it can be very challenging to navigate emotions, relationships, and stressors of everyday life. This period of development can also be a rich time for self-discovery, excitement, and growth. I would love to collaborate with you or your loved one to connect with your innate wisdom and values to foster healing, identity development, and resilience.

Wow! Covid.... My life and yours have changed so much in the last year and are hopefully returning to some normalcy soon. In the meantime old issues may have resurfaced or new ones developed. Relationships have grown stronger or become more problematic as we spend more time with our loved ones. In any case talking with someone who can understand where you are coming from is so helpful!! We can untangle some of the knots that are holding you in place and preventing growth. You can make new connections in your own brain to challenge and love yourself more. We will start our work wherever you are and find our path from there.

Recovery DOESN'T have to include 100% sobriety. But, you're starting to question your relationship with alcohol. It's not like you're missing work or blacking out every weekend - but you're wondering if your drinking is crossing into "problem" territory. Yet, NEVER having a cocktail or two at happy hour or enjoying a tailgate beer isn't an appealing alternative. When it comes to recovery, most people think in black or white terms when it comes to alcohol use - you're either sober or not. However, there is a middle ground - a place to challenge or change your relationship with alcohol and turn it into something that works for you!

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.
