I am a certified EMDR Therapist and Approved Consultant in EMDR Therapy. I help adults get through difficult life transitions and recover from traumatic experiences. Trauma can trigger overwhelming stress, anxiety, grief, fear, confusion, depression, anger, nightmares, and other sleep problems. Intrusive thoughts of traumatic experiences (including flashbacks) can greatly interfere with a person's ability to function in relationships, at home, and at work. I help people get over these lingering effects of trauma to resume or renew a sense of their own life's purpose and direction.

In the 21st century, it is common knowledge that adolescence can be an extremely trying time filled with struggles of self-exploration, changing social norms, budding sexuality, and academic stressors. It can be a shock to learn of a time back before the 20th century where the concept of the teenage years did not exist and youth were expected to act and respond as adults as soon as signs of childhood waned. Fortunately, modern science and psychology in particular have been instrumental in recognizing and standing up for the unique needs of this essential growing period of milestones and distinctive struggles.

You are exhausted. You and your partner have the same arguments over and over again, without any resolution. Sometimes you forget what it is you are even arguing about. You wish that you and your partner could magically improve your communication and get back to a time and space when you loved talking to each other or just being in the same room together. You look at your partner almost daily and wonder how you got to this place and  what it will take to return to “the good times”. You miss laughing at each other’s jokes, holding hands, and sharing intimate moments.

"A humble knowledge of oneself is a surer road to God than a deep searching of the sciences." Thomas a' Kempis I have been a practitioner since 1988. Over the last 22 years of practice, my approach to therapy has become very eclectic. I have come to understand that no one style can possibly meet the needs of everyone that comes to me for assistance. However, the one variable that is always necessary for a successful therapeutic experience is the positive and trusting bond that is formed between me and those I work wit.

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." This Emerson quote resonates with me because although people have endured very painful events in their lives and may face difficult days ahead, the strength of the human spirit never ceases to amaze me with its resiliency. When people enter into treatment, I consider it a privilege to help them through difficult times in their lives. Whether the problem is a personal, marital, or parenting difficulty, I meet them where they are at and work alongside them to increase awareness, personal empowerment, and life satisfaction.

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.
