Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
As a therapist my desire is to help others find wholeness in their relationships with themselves and others through an approach of genuine acceptance, respect, and empathy. I believe meeting people where they are at in life and hearing their unique life stories is an important part of the therapy process. I am also a certified EMDR therapist who works with clients to find a path to healing past traumas or hurts when needed.

If you’re reading this, this is a sign that YES, now IS a good time to start working on YOU! You may be feeling stuck, going through a major life transition or perhaps a recent grad, asking yourself “now what?” You may be feeling guilt, shame, or anger about things in your past or present, and wish you could just talk about it without fear of being judged! The anxiety and/or depression (feelings of sadness, irritability, anger outbursts, constant worry, social withdrawal etc) you’re experiencing may be getting in the way of you living your life, causing you to ask questions like “Why am I like this? Will I ever feel happy? Why

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.
What type of therapist is right for me?
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.
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 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.
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.
