I delight in working with people who are deep feeling, passionate, and long for more time in soulful community and nature. Life may have been tough on you and let you down many times, but you refuse to give up, you keep moving forward, because deep down you know you are meant for more and life should not feel this overwhelming. I want to help you live a life that you love and feels authentic to you! If you have a vision for yourself or the world, if you have ideas, dreams, or passions, a desire for a better future, I want to hear about it! Even if those dreams seem out of reach right now, together we can work to make them a reality.

I may be a good fit for you if you find yourself experiencing moments of intense emotion, such as frustration, anger, rage, sadness, emptiness, and overwhelm. You may be misappropriating your intense feelings at your friends/family/significant others and may be at risk of losing important relationships. You might also be struggling to function at work, calling off sick more than you would like. You might also be trying to soothe yourself in ways that ultimately don't fix the problem and might also make you feel worse, guilty, or ashamed.

Worry, stress, and poor sleep have become all too familiar. Maybe a sense of hopelessness, helplessness or just feeling stuck are common thoughts. You may be in a marriage or relationship that has become increasingly more difficult, more conflicted, less loving and passionate, and you are wondering if you should stay, go, or if anything can change. You’ve set goals, you’ve given yourself pep talks, you’ve promised yourself you’ll change, but it’s not working. Usually, you can snap out of it, but this feels different. Often these challenges feel all consuming, and having a trusted and qualified person walk alongside you is helpful.

School curriculum doesn't teach us how to be happy or to cope with life's stressors. Often times people turn to unhealthy coping skills, or fall into the same old pattern. One of the bravest things you can do is to admit you don't have all the answers, and ask for help. You don't have to settle for a mundane life filled with anxiety, frustration, and sadness. When you could be growing and thriving. If you are reading this than chances are you or a loved one are ready to make a change.

I have over 20 years of experience in helping individuals, couples and families move through the anger, hurt and fear often associated with difficult life transitions. I believe that while we cannot directly change events that happen in our lives, most of us can learn to change our perceptions about these issues.

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.
