Being hurt is a part of life. None of us are free of pain. Sometimes, the troubles of life, the losses you have experienced, the pain and hurt other people have caused, your fears about the future, and your regrets about your past create a life of torment. By taking responsibility for your life, accepting, and allowing what happens to you rather than resisting the pain, you can move forward with your life. You are worthy to live your life with joy, love, clarity, and dignity. Let me be your friend and fellow traveler on your journey.

My patients come to me because they are stuck - maybe you and your partner keep having the same argument over and over; you can’t seem to shake certain thoughts, feelings, or habits; or your heart and life have broken open in a way you can’t seem to make sense of alone. Many of the people I work with experienced trauma in their past. These experiences can create barriers to fulfillment in relationships and life more broadly - often unknowingly. By remaining curious about what lies beneath the surface, and exploring new ways of relating to self and others, we will work together to create, and claim, a space that is truly your own.

Your marriage is unraveling-fast. The cycle of fighting and arguing is endless. What starts as a small request quickly escalates to include everything you have ever done wrong. Name-calling, scorekeeping, finger-pointing, and threatening are all active participants in the arguments. Then comes the avoidance, the silence, the uncomfortable awkwardness. Eventually, one of you breaks the silence, but it’s not to talk about how you hurt each other. It’s as if the conflict never happened. You go on with your life, walking on eggshells, building a bigger wall of resentment, knowing that the next big blowup is right around the corner.

Navigating through life can be brutal at times. The price of admission on this journey is often great pain, deep loss, and profound confusion, and many of us believe the measure of strength is how much of it we can navigate alone. But connection and support are often the greatest access points to healing. So our work together will be centered around more compassion and less comparison, more acceptance and less fixing, and more normalizing and less shame. I hope to help create peace within your relationships, encourage empowerment in your choices and gently guide you back home to yourself.

Does it ever feel like you can talk and talk but it doesn’t lead to lasting change? While some types of therapy focus on gaining insight by analyzing the endless stories that run through your head, a growing body of research shows that effective therapy needs to include the mind and the body.

Parenting can test our limits and fill our hearts so full, all at the same time. When our limits are tested, it is hard to know where to turn with the endless questions we ask ourselves: Am I doing this the "right" way? Why are my kids acting this way? With so much conflicting information out there, it can feel hard to know what direction to take for your unique family. And often, as parents, there are expectations to do it alone or follow in the footsteps of what we know, even if that does not fit with our current beliefs and values.

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.
