Romantic relationships are one of the hardest things that you will ever do in your life. Communication problems, arguing, bickering can lead you to have the same type of fight day after day. You both could be using attacking or harsh words in these moments of disconnection. This leads you to more hurt and pain. Learning how to work through any problem that exists in your relationship is hardworking but possible. Issues that you might have could be letting your partner down or not meeting their expectations, money issues, parenting disagreements, lack of sex, or even working through an affair.

Life can become overwhelming, making it difficult to maintain important roles or relationships. That the ways you’ve managed to this point seem to have lost their impact or have become a part of the problem. These situations may leave you feeling confused, directionless, or unmotivated. It can begin to feel as if you have no traction as your confidence in who you were recedes and is replaced with pressure to “just do or be this”. The difficulty to find a way to live life on your terms, to be who you want to be, can bring on feelings of hopelessness when facing things alone.

Call now $35 dollars per session. Many people find themselves wondering why their partners do not understand them or wondering why they argue over and over again about the same problems as why their partner does not load the dishwasher right, pick up their clothes, or put the toilet paper roll on the right way (yes, there is a right way). Sometimes issues seem small, and sometimes they escalate to bigger issues. Sometimes we wonder if we are just “two different people” to be together. Sometimes we get busy with life, kids, fur babies, jobs, and we stop making each other the priority.

I studied Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Northwestern University, and currently offer counseling and therapy sessions to diverse individuals, teens, and families who seek to build core strength, and to shift behavioral and thinking patterns that no longer serve them. Clients learn tools to manage anxiety, depression, and trauma related stress. My collaborative, multicultural counseling approach centers on fostering emotional-spiritual safety through an integrative, mindful-somatic lens. Clients seek to elevate their self-understanding and self-acceptance so they may more fully embody their unique gifts, purpose, and calling.

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.
