There are times when unexpected challenges, loss and seemingly ever-higher expectations overwhelm us. Unwanted repetitive thoughts may disrupt our sleep. We may isolate from friends and activities we previously enjoyed. We may experience dullness and a lack of energy. Counseling can help to ease the burden of life's painful and challenging circumstances. As a counselor, I appreciate the courage it takes to ask for help.

In working with clients, I hope to help individual's discover their uniqueness. However, over my 15 years of working with people as a psychologist, I have also come to appreciate the many similarities inherent in being a human being. Often people come to therapy because they feel, "Something is wrong with me." I have found it to be healing when a patient realizes, "Oh, that's a normal response," given what has happened. They can then be open to learn ways to work with their symptoms, to work on their goals, and to begin living a satisfying life with the ability to find the inherent joys, along with the challenges, in life.

Helping You Find Your Freedom. You have been overwhelmed by life. Your emotions have been hijacking your day. You can't seem to find yourself or your way in life. It’s interfering with relationships, work, and how you treat yourself. Thoughts race in your mind; “Will I ever be enough?” "Why can't I just stop my anxiety? " "What will people think ?" "What if I don't succeed?" This spirals you to insecurity, more anxiety, and hopelessness. You see things getting worse, but what if you saw yourself getting help and feeling better? What if you could learn to cope and find healing and confidence? This is possible for you!

Hi I’m Rebecca. I have extensive experience working with people who are struggling with anxiety and depression, as well as with adolescents and family conflict. I don’t believe that there is a “one size fits all” approach to getting well. I have spent many years doing intense family therapy. I’ve done work with couples and families helping them to get along better, effectively communicate and improve their relationships. I’ve also done a lot of work helping parents target and address problem areas with their children to empower them to manage their child’s high-risk behaviors.

To explore the deeper stories, you must abandon contempt for compassion. And from this compassionate stance, curiously and courageously engage your own heart while holding the same open stance toward others. It is in this tilled ground that true growth and change occur. Here is where creativity and connection are born, and the once solitary protagonist discovers that they are fighting in the company of a great multitude of heroes, each with their own story, each digging deeper.

Everyone experiences trauma at some point in their lives. Anxiety, anger, forgetfulness, fear, sadness, survivor’s guilt, a diminished sense of self and feelings of helplessness are just some of the emotions experienced after a disturbing life-altering event . Rather than trauma, maybe you’re just feeling overwhelmed and stifled. Perhaps the joy you once felt has diminished, and you feel like it’s a struggle to get through a day. Maybe you’ve tried to make changes but find yourself falling back into the same old patterns. Are you going through a challenging transition and needing emotional support and guidance?

My journey to becoming a therapist was anything but linear & evolved out of my personal commitment to holistic healing. Basically, I’ve spent my time on the couch as well & recognized in a profound way this “psychobabble” really does work! I believe healing happens when we are able to step out of our comfort zones & hold curiosity about ourselves from a bio-psycho-social-spiritual perspective within a safe supportive relationship(ok, humor is essential too). Client’s often say they feel “seen” by me at a depth others do not & I help put the puzzle pieces of experience together to “make sense" of their histories.

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.
