You want to stop living in fear/worry. You've had enough of doubting and criticizing yourself every single day questioning your skills at work or at interpersonal relationships with friends or your partner or the idea of dating is terrifying..the good news is you're in the right place and you're not alone! It's exhausting not being able to enjoy things that used to matter to you and over-thinking every single detail in a negative way. It's infuriating to want to socialize but being afraid of how people will "judge" or "view" you just because you don't feel like yourself. It's draining to not wanting to go to work or start your day.

Seeking out therapy is a very heroic action in and of itself, perhaps your first proactive step into redefining your sense of self, creating a new life story, and taking a leap into the direction of self-care. If you are reading this, you may be in a state of uncertainty, or perhaps connected more deeply than you would like to be to the effects of depression, anxiety, or your daily life situations. Maybe, you are wrestling in a relationship with someone you love; perhaps, finding the words to communicate who you are and how you feel may seem unattainable and challenging at best.

Hi! I'm Bree and I'm a peer counselor rooted in fat liberation, community psychology, and feminist therapy. I mostly work with rad fat folx who strive for fat positivity and/or body neutrality. I work with others who aren't fat, but they're anti-diet and striving for body liberation, too. I also work with fellow neurodivergent folx who want to work with (instead of against) their unique circumstances. I love working with people who are collaborative, solution-oriented, open to feedback, and open to using tarot for additional feedback. If you're looking for empowerment and unconditional support, I've got lots of it to give! :)

There's a lot of talk about "survival mode" and being "stuck". Many of us are moving, often, between these two extremes. Many of us are surviving or trying to get unstuck from our bodies, our jobs, our families, coming out, college transitions, gender transitions, a relationship in a tough spot, loss, an existential or identity crisis, or coming from a place of certainty to find ourselves in these life challenges. Listen, I won't ever call you out on a place I've never been myself. I believe, fully, that there is so much life after survival. You don't have to believe that too, but I'm so glad you've arrived here.

STUCK. You're not sure exactly why, but there's a nagging sense that something's off. You might call it an existential crisis. Maybe it feels like a depression, or being lost and anxious. Whatever it is, I see it a CROSS-ROADS: a chance to choose a different, more fulfilling life. I believe that the uncomfortable things you're feeling - worry, fear, frustration, or no motivation or excitement about life - are a signal from the wisdom of your deeper, truest self that something needs to CHANGE. Will you answer the call?

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.
