A healthy outside starts from the Inside. My specialty is relationships. Not just the relationships you have with those around you, but the relationship you have with yourself. Life should not be a struggle; it should be an adventure you enjoy. Therapy can help you whether you are trapped in a routine that's no longer serving you, facing a new difficulty, or simply seeking to improve the general quality of your life.

Pregnancy, birthing, and early parenting are physically and emotionally life altering transitions. For many families they can be a mix of immense joy and overwhelming suffering. If you are struggling with infertility or loss, the road to parenthood is even more emotionally burdensome. Trained in maternal mental health, I help women and couples work through the challenges of difficulty conceiving, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and early parenting. I help the whole family to develop resources, make meaning out of your experiences, transform your identity, and forge supportive and loving relationships within your family unit.

I specialize in the release of depression, anxiety, negativity, jealousy, lack of motivation, weight issues, perfectionism, anger problems and anything that is a result of low self-esteem. If you would like to move through the world with more confidence and ease, you must be willing to see yourself in a different way, and with Rapid Transformational Therapy and hypnotherapy, I can help you achieve that.

The client I like most to work with are those who because of developmental woundedness are not reaching the goals they have set for themselves both personally and professionally. They may be experiencing symptoms such as depression, anxiety, or guilt related to where they are at in life. These symptoms may be more current because of present situations that exacerbate issues of the unresolved conflict of chronic parental disregard, traumatic experience, and, or, the result of stifling defensive measures they have used to stay safe and get what they can from new relationships and experiences,

I treat several types of people: those with Depression (especially the treatment-resistant type); Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); Substance Use Disorder (SUD); and those engaged with existential considerations (meaning, purpose, drive). In many cases - even including those with SUD - the addition of Ketamine can bring about successful changes many have found elusive.

So much of our happiness boils down to the relationships in our lives; it brings us our greatest joys or our most painful sorrows. Life transitions, both developmental (adolescence, young adults, mid-life) and experiential (cohabitating, marriage, parenting, divorce) can cause unexpected emotional and relational challenges and getting support through these transitions can be hugely beneficial. We all suffer from moments of shame, sadness, loss, confusion, anxiety, insecurity, and fear as we try to move through these developmental stages and life transitions, but you don't have to do it alone.

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.
