As a therapist, my goal is to help individuals, couples, and families help themselves through communication and rebuilding trust, thus building a foundation for growth. This foundation will then aid in the management of daily stresses and the seemingly overwhelming issues we face in life. Through our work together, we can restore love, hope, and peace of mind.

Many people see therapy as a one-sided conversation, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience each other as real people. I want to help you achieve whatever solutions and life changes you are looking for while enjoying the process as much as possible and experiencing yourself in new ways. Simply put, I don’t believe therapy has to always be a painful thing. Calling a counselor can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to call and see how I can help.

Life is full of stress. Whether it is changing a job or dealing with a family member that is battling addiction, life can throw some doozies at you. It's important to have somebody in your corner that will listen without judgement. My goal is to provide a safe space to sort through life's stressors. Sometimes it will help to talk it out, other times we need to learn how to accept our circumstances or to make a commitment to change them.

" What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. " Ralph Waldo Emerson. I believe human beings are remarkably resilient to life circumstances. Each of us face obstacles to happiness that life brings our way. Throughout each human's lifetime he/she will face stress, grief, loss, disappointments, life changes, sadness, and challenges that stretch limits, question our place in this world, and prompt us to seek wisdom and guidance. To reach that goal, I implement Mindfulness, CBT, Boundaries, DBT, Self Esteem, Relaxation techniques, and reading recommendations as part of therapy.

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.

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.
