I believe healing happens when you make a connection with another person where you can be yourself, feel valued, listened to, and cared for. Working with a therapist can be a way to access the healing you desire and deserve. In our work together we can look at ALL the aspects of you, without judgement (even the parts you don't LOVE). When the totality of you is allowed to be seen, heard and cared for, a shift happens--that's where the healing happens. While you don't need to do a "Big Dig" to examine your past, you CAN change the way the past impacts the present. If you're up for making art, that's great--and it's not required.

If you have faced trauma in your life, you know that self-doubt, relationship struggles, and a fear of abandonment can follow you. Feeling alone, disconnected, and stuck is most often traced back to our past. My role as your therapist is to be your guide through this despair. Motivation is the hardest aspect of making changes in your mental health, so I use an approach that combines trauma treatment with a "coaching" mindset. You are ready to leave a lack of self-worth behind, and instead find confidence in your body, in your relationships, and in your future. We will find your resilience & pave a path forward for a better future.

Are you overwhelmed by the number of things you "have to do" when you don't "want to do" any of them? Some days, you might feel stuck in a rut and can’t get out. You might feel like are holding everything together, but you aren’t enjoying your life. You may question the direction of your life. When you stop to think about it, you may realize don't like the path you are on. Yet, you aren’t sure whether it's scarier that you don’t often question the path or how often you continue to march down the path knowing how you feel. Yes, it’s a scary place to be, but you gathered up the courage to take the first step. Most people don't.

It has been said that all sickness is home-sickness. Your one true life is calling and therapy is a pathway home. Having a trusted companion on the journey is invaluable in the unfolding. A good therapist is a sounding board, a guide, a coach, a compassionate ear and an excellent compass. Someone who not only creates a safe space for exploration but joins you in the weeds, helps comb through the confusions, and acts, at the same time, as a referee, an archivist and a witness. A good therapist stands out of the way when the work is moving along & gently encourages when the work is stuck or sidelined.

Choosing to begin psychotherapy opens yourself to the experience of self-discovery, reflection, and growth. This decision may feel exhilarating or scary, as self-work often requires courage and a willingness to examine aspects of life which may have gone unattended for some time. But truly, beginning psychotherapy reflects an inner desire and commitment to enhance the parts of yourself and your life which are working well, and to explore, and ultimately make changes in the parts you would like to be different.

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.
