In the movie of your life, do you play the hero and the villain? Examples would be self-sabotage, counting yourself out, getting angrier than you need to, or adding stress to deal with stress. If being self-aware of these patterns hasn’t been enough to help you make positive changes, the support of a therapist might. Even if I don’t personally get the opportunity to work with you, I want you to know it takes courage to look within to stop being your own worst enemy. If we do work together I’m committed to helping you channel that courage to face what’s getting in the way of the role you want to play in your life.

You deserve a happy, healthy life. Life and relationships can be increasingly painful, yet it is difficult to reach out for help. The longer we put off getting help, the worse things can become. I am here to support your growth and help you make needed changes. It is possible to learn to stop life patterns that keep us in a cycle of unhappiness. I confront in a gentle way so that you can begin to learn how to change those patterns.

Mental health is more than just a healed mind. My patients come to me with common emotional symptoms, like anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and trauma. But in the process of working with me, they also heal their bodily symptoms, like gut issues, chronic fatigue, insomnia, and more. True healing happens in the nervous system through a combination of evidence-based, mind-body interventions (EFT, CBT, mindfulness, and EMDR). Once achieved, you will have increased self-confidence, improved relationships, reduced reactivity and trauma response, and an overall feeling of authenticity and contentment in your life.

You came into a committed partnership knowing there would be peaks and valleys. You shared your dreams about the future together, creating a roadmap. You talked about whether or not you'd have children. You witnessed the differences between your family's of origin and wondered if it would get in the way of your togetherness. You shared some of your past and the wounds you might be carrying. Here you are, years into your partnership feeling disconnected, resentful, struggling with intimacy, and wondering if you will find a deep connection with one another again. What happened to the loving relationship you once had?

Life doesn't always go the way we planned in our heads. Sometimes we are thrown curveballs, presented with a transition we didn't choose, or maybe notice that stress has caught up to us.

You know how even the most talented, well-educated powerful women seem to attract toxic people who gaslight, guilt-trip and emotionally abuse them? This hidden epidemic and rampant soul-sucking costs our female leaders their feminine presence and confidence, peace and passion in relationships, and access to their personal power. We are not broken: we are Old Soul Women, spiritually driven to nurture, help and fix. Unfortunately, we often give until there is little left and we lose ourselves in the process. Breaking the dangerous habit demands that we rediscover WHO we are, and embrace our Divine power so that we can rise again.

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.
