Have you ever felt like some parts of life are going well while others need more attention? Sometimes, it can be things that have lingered in the back of our mind for a while that unknowingly, are keeping us stuck and unable to grow. Living a full life is less about will power and more about having the skills to know what you need in any given moment. I primarily work with adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationships, unresolved trauma, and life transitions. EMDR is a great tool that helps process deeper rooted issues to help find resolve.

Anxiety has caused you to experience exhaustion and isolation. You constantly have doubts and worries floating around in your thoughts. It feels like your mind won’t stop thinking about everything at once. You doubt yourself because every little decision feels monumentally consequential. Normal tasks that used to bring you joy no longer do, even your hobbies have fallen by the wayside. Friends try reaching out to you, but you end up withdrawing further away from them. You wish there were a way to go back to when you were happy and sure of yourself, but there seems to be this massive gap that just can't be bridged.

“Every genuinely loving relationship is one of mutual psychotherapy.” So wrote M. Scott Peck in "The Road Less Traveled." I knew Scotty, and he included our 10-yr. correspondence in his final papers. I now teach couples how to become their OWN mutual therapists. Most of us have scars from our childhood or past relationships that deter us from opening our hearts even to those we claim to love. Many couples thus enter into a tacit agreement not to rock the relational boat. But I see relational tension as a thrust for both personal authenticity AND intimacy. A blessing, not a curse, it is the very coin of the mutual-therapeutic realm.

We often seek therapy when we feel overwhelmed, confused, or frustrated by feelings that we can't seem to get past. We begin feeling stuck and worry that maybe something is wrong with us, or that we'll always feel this way. While it can sometimes feel hopeless, this often happens because of interference from ideas, beliefs, or fears that we don't realize we're holding onto. Therapy brings these to light, increasing our understanding of ourselves and our situation, and creating the conditions needed to finally move forward.

Sometimes, life gets so chaotic that it seems hard to keep up or go on. The thought of another day may start to feel like a task that can’t be completed. You may know that something is wrong but find it difficult to pinpoint what exactly is going on. This feeling is scary and often will lead to avoiding what needs to be done in order to start living a life of purpose and enrichment.

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.
