Now offering telehealth services for children, adolescents, and adults. We live in a fast-paced society that fosters stress, anxiety, and perfectionism, often at the expense of balance and well-being. As a psychologist, I work with clients to help them increase healthy functioning and create the balance they are seeking in their lives, behaviors and relationships. Unfortunately, many of the stressors of modern life begin to be felt early. I work with not only adults, but children and adolescents to help them learn healthy ways of managing the demands they face.

When life gets difficult, talk often isn't enough. With creative strategies, compassionate support, and cutting-edge tools, you can get past your past, feel more connected, and experience confidence, clarity, and joy. I am fascinated by the latest evidence on how we can bring about lasting change. I listen intently & share my thoughts. We'll get to the heart of the matter and connect the dots. Sure, we will talk. But we will do much more. Many find that talking to a therapist may produce some results, but that gains are often temporary. I specialize in approaches specifically geared toward deep and long-lasting change.

If you are looking at this page, you are most likely trying to get help. Finding a good match is essential to successful therapy. I connect with clients by listening and exploring without judgement. Clients have told me they appreciate my compassion, finding it easy to talk with me about difficult issues. Psychotherapy is a process of self-discovery where you learn why you do what you do, as well as how to change behaviors. Many hide their authentic self, conforming to the expectations of others. Psychotherapy can assist you in becoming reacquainted with yourself.

I have had particular success and joy treating twenty-somethings and teens. I approach the younger audience with an easy and open manner creating a relatable and accepting atmosphere. As a result, young people gravitate to me as they sense I attune to their experience with genuine care. As a mother of three young adult women–as well as an uncanny memory of the adventures of my own formative years–I understand this demographic, and the need for the confident guidance of a capable clinician to offer support and empowerment through this unique life stage.

You smile and try to be helpfully nice, you are really trying and failing. Though you try your best to be there for others, it feels as if no one is really there for you or for those you love. No one is listening, no one sees you, or understands you. You are at a dead end and in dire need of tender care. Peace and quiet, love and laughter. Bonds that unite and relationships that matter. Imagine such a life? Suffering is a part of living but only to a point, not this jagged line tearing you and those you care about apart. Despair lurks in your bedroom at night and at dawn. You awaken to another doomsday, another struggle session.

I see individuals, couples and children and treat a wide range of issues such as relational problems, self-sabotage, pregnancy and post-partum difficulties, and parenting challenges. I use a psychodynamic perspective, working with my clients in a collaborative and insightful process. Problems are understood within a context of past interpersonal experiences which often help provide understanding to the client's current situation. I am also well prepared to help clients of faith effectively integrate spiritual convictions and concerns with psychological understandings and emotional health.

**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Like many moms, you wear numerous hats in your life, and trying to manage them all successfully can be emotionally exhausting. Too often, you tell yourself that you ARE FAILING; failing at being a mom, failing at being a partner, failing at being a friend, failing at being an employee or student, etc etc...leaving you feeling helpless, hopeless, anxious, and depressed. One voice tells you that you CAN do this while the louder voice tells you that you CAN'T, so you isolate in the silence of shame and put on a brave face hoping to make it through the day. You want to feel better, but you're unsure how.

Despite your hard work, does it seem like problems continue to pop up for you? You might consider your family disorganized or even chaotic. You have noticed a shift in your child or children and are concerned, it may be caused by divorce or a loss in the family, or other events that cause stress. You are worried about their socialization and they seem to just not be themselves. Friends, family and maybe even teachers are expressing their own concerns regarding your child. You are not sure if it's your parenting or what more you can provide your child. This is scary, overwhelming and it takes courage to admit it isn't working.

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.
