I see both first responders as well as non first responders in my practice. I find that one of the most important elements to good therapy is a good match between the therapist and client. I encourage anyone looking into therapy to schedule a free consultation call to ensure that we are a good match! It may also help to listen to a few of my podcast episodes to get a feel for my personality and approaches to treatment. I work with young adults (16 and up) as well as adults to help process trauma, anxiety, depression, and social and relational issues.

I provide a strengths-based approach to therapy and enjoy collaborating with clients in identifying ways in which they are resilient and can promote healthy strategies to improve their lives. The goal is to help clients increase awareness and increase coping skills to manage symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and trauma. What is important to me is that I provide a safe and welcoming therapeutic environment in which clients can feel comfortable in exploring their thoughts, feelings, and life challenges.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and work with adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationships, or adjusting to changes in life. At its core, I believe psychotherapy is a journey back home; a feeling and sense of authenticity, meaning and fulfillment. I help my client's to address and resolve what brings them into therapy by teaching them new ways to cope with difficult emotions and stress, and helping them to develop greater self-awareness and deeper insight into themselves in order to facilitate change.

I am a psychoanalyst, certified EMDR therapist, and IMAGO couple's therapist. I work with individuals and couples (gay and straight) on everything from complex trauma stemming from childhood and PTSD, to relationship ruptures both personally and professionally. Couples' work allows couples to move from blame and reactivity to understanding and empathy, so they can create a deeper and more loving connection with each other. I also work with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, and career challenges. As a former TV anchor and journalist, I understand the inner workings of the entertainment/news industry.

Do you ever feel alone, lonely, confused, angry, and don't know why or how to cope with these emotions? Complex emotions can hijack our day-to-day lives leaving us feeling defeated. Sometimes we are not taught adaptive ways to cope at an early age making it hard to manage our stressors. Our stressors can affect our emotions and how we behave due to those feelings, which can create tension in our interpersonal relationships and how we view ourselves. I believe in having a trusting, genuine, and collaborative relationship with my clients to show them trust, acceptance, and healing can be attainable.

Dr. Erin Haven believes that relationships are central to the human experience. Our early interactions "“ combined with our biology and learning experiences "“ set the foundation for how we view ourselves and the world. And while those early relationships and experiences shape us, they do not have to define us. She finds it rewarding to support youth and young adults (ages 6-24) as they develop their identity and foster independence.

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.
