I enjoy what I do and helping people figure out what they want and where they want to be — or get through what they have to! My clients tell me they've appreciate that I "don't give up" on people and I put energy and focus in our work because I want to see you get better. Some people know exactly what they want - anxiety management skills or how to cope with depression or trauma. Some people know that something isn't right but they're not sure where to start. The question is what do you want to change about your life - what's not working now. I’m ND affirmative, nonjudgmental, and see couples in all types of relationships

You deserve a full and meaningful life. The voice that says otherwise is often born of dysfunctional family conditions and traumatic events. The resulting coping habits cause so much suffering. In an attempt to find relief, you act in counterproductive ways to avoid the pain: denial, isolation, screens, self-medicating, dysfunctional relationships, etc... Sadly, this tends to worsen things. Your confidence and self-esteem are diminished. Your life, relationships, and career suffer. Then toxic self-reliance shames you into believing you're a failure for not fixing yourself. The situation can feel hopeless. But you can find relief.

Life rarely turns out how we think it will, so when a deeply distressing or disturbing experience occurs, we often struggle to find our next steps. Hope and purpose can become a distant reality. Sometimes, the traumatic event occurs to just one person, but often times, these experiences happen within the context of the family and everyone is impacted. Despite our best efforts to continue on our own, we may need the assistance of another person. At Mountain Valley Counseling, I use an integrated blend of evidence-based techniques as well as a warm, authentic approach to provide hope-filled healing and professional guidance.

First, I want to welcome you. I know it's not a club you wished to be a part of, but you are not alone here. Grief can feel like a beast and it can be incredibly lonely. You may feel like you're on the cusp of a never-ending black hole. I know firsthand how deeply painful, disorienting, and overwhelming this time can be. And as hard as it may be to fathom it right now, it can also be a time of transformation. We grieve as deeply as we love so to grieve is to honor our loss, our person, our pet, or our potential.

We are not really taught what it takes to be in a healthy relationship. Honestly, most of us are winging it based the function or dysfunction that we saw from our parents without even realizing that is what we are doing. While most of us are doing our best in our relationships, without intentions or tools we can create habits and behaviors that end up causing disconnect and dissatisfaction with our partners. What if you could learn new tools to be able to feel connected? What if working through conflict didn't have to be a traumatic experience every time it came up?

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.
