We are not meant to do life alone. As a therapist, I care deeply about creating a space where people can be seen, heard, and accepted. I value the transformative power that relationships have to offer – a sense of presence in the midst of life’s difficulties, and the opportunity to discover new ways of being.

I have designed a practice to be responsive to your contemporary needs in your life - through VIRTUAL interactive therapy appointments that effectively utilize the natural setting you are in. I have found that therapy can be even more useful by meeting you in the context you are in. Meeting you while you are parenting can better tackle your parenting goals. Mind-body health goals can be achieved even better when we use therapy virtually while you’re on a walk. Teaching you to take valuable breaks in your day, is a therapy approach that can be even more helpful as you reset from your office. This is not your average teletherapy.

Have you looked at your life lately and thought that maybe your life hasn’t turned out the way you thought it would be? Or maybe you’ve “checked all the boxes” but you still feel numb, disconnected, anxious or depressed? Maybe you are growing your family, and no one told you becoming a mother would be so difficult. But the fact is, life can be hard. Really hard. And sometimes we need help navigating our thoughts, feelings and experiences.

Are you concerned about your child/teen? Is their behavior related to mental health or are the changes you are observing a normal part of development? You may be noticing behaviors such as withdrawal, sadness, irritability, loss of interest in activities they previously enjoyed. Or they may be anxious, overwhelmed, moody, fearful or having difficulty focusing in school. It can be hard to start the conversation with your child/teen or get them to open up? As a parent it can be overwhelming to watch kids struggle and not know how to intervene or offer support. You don't have to do it alone.

I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to address long-term problems and patterns. It is through this kind of personal exploration that a deeper understanding can be attained and the sense-of-self can be strengthened. A psychodynamic approach can go below the surface to address problems, improve personal relationships, and stop self-destructive behavior. So often, past experiences can interfere with our present lives and we find ourselves suffering through repeated ongoing pain.

Our past experiences can have a very lasting effect on our lives & unfortunately don't magically disappear once we remove ourselves from the people or environment inflicting pain. The impact of these experiences can follow us for the rest of our lives if we don't take the necessary action to release ourselves & ensure a brighter present & future. These painful experiences can cause many issues if not addressed: relationships, depression, anxiety, anger, difficulty at work, etc. Often times trauma and health issues go hand in hand, or sometimes it hard to know which came first, the physical pain or the emotional pain.

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.
