I thrive in my work with creative, compassionate adults who are experiencing anxiety, burnout, or relationship stress. We may be a fit to work together if you are looking for a safer space to examine feelings of dissatisfaction or disconnect, and are curious about how to foster a greater sense of self-esteem and worthiness. I particularly enjoy working with self-described high achievers, and women in historically male-dominated industries. If you're ready to navigate your life more comfortably, gain confidence in communicating your needs, and build skills to better cope with your feelings - I look forward to supporting you in that.

Hopeless, lost, depressed, overwhelmed, anxious? Maybe you feel like it's all your fault. It's easy to feel like there's something wrong with us when we need help, that we're not supposed to be vulnerable, that we're supposed to tough it out. Sometimes the bravest thing we can do is ask for help. There may be no perfect point where we can land on spectrums of intelligence, sexuality, gender, personality, or any of the identities we use to define ourselves. But our ability to move across these spectrums may make the difference between us feeling stuck in our day-to-day lives and being able to grow and change when we need to the most.

In a society with high standards, caregiving challenges, and demanding work environments, it is easy to forget about our own well-being. It can even appear more convenient to put our mental health on the back-burner, but if we disregard self-care it can lead to a burnout. Burnout can lead to mental exhaustion, cynicism, detachment, and depression. Furthermore, when we are burnt out, the light we shine on and for others is diminished. I can assist and support you in working through hardships that may cause you frustration, have you in a burnout state, and/or make it difficult for you to manage daily tasks.

Yes, parenting feels hard, because it is hard. You are probably here because of your concerns for your child’s intense emotions and behaviors. It may be the tantrums that never seem to stop, or the biting and the hitting that feel too intense. It may be the rising anxiety and worries that your child is struggling with. Perhaps you feel depleted and lost from sifting through strategy after strategy while struggling to balance family life, relationships, work, and day-to-day chores. Has it been challenging for you to simply enjoy your child because you feel consumed by guilt, frustration, and worry as a parent? You are not alone.

If you're anything like me, you've struggled to shape your identity. You've challenged societal expectations, rejected toxic dynamics, and forged a path that truly reflects who you are. But despite your progress, there's still a sense of incompleteness. Many people don't understand you, and there's a continuous journey of self-discovery and education, which can be exhausting. Sometimes, it feels like you're just going through the motions, struggling to maintain hope in the face of life's unpredictability. It might be time to consider having a mental health partner by your side, someone to navigate these challenges with you.

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.
