Every person has an inherent need to feel seen, heard, and understood. When these critical needs aren't met, it's common for coping mechanisms that are both ineffective and self-destructive to take shape, which can then lead to feelings of frustration, isolation, and a sense of being "stuck." Whether your negative feelings manifest themselves as anxiety, depression, impulsive behaviors, addiction, or the inability to connect with others, navigating these struggles alone can be overwhelming. No matter how helpless you may feel, it's important to know that you're not alone. Finding healing and freedom is possible!

If you or someone you love is looking for professional help in dealing with anxiety, depression, or serious mental illness, I am pleased to offer my years of experience as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I provide therapy that can ease the burden of emotional stress that adults from all walks of life are struggling through. Often, my clients feel significant change in a shorter time than clinical approaches that depend on years of therapy. I work together with people so they learn to master different ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving in life's stressful situations.

While gaining seniority is an accomplishment, it comes with many obstacles we don't often consider. When senior loved ones encounter health challenges it impacts the whole family. Understanding, navigating, and adapting to those changes requires more than patience; it requires the support and guidance of someone who not only comprehends the complexities of such transitions but also approaches them with a deep sense of empathy and compassion.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and as a counselor, it's my passion to come alongside individuals who seek to deepen their self-awareness and cultivate healthier long-lasting relationships. A foundational belief I hold is that we are created for relationships, and those relationships can shape or break us. With that being said, I believe the sacred relationship between client and therapist has the ability to offer profound opportunities for both healing and transformation. My primary goal in treatment is to make sure every person walks away from session feeling seen, heard, and felt.

I help people cultivate connection and live an authentic life. When we are living a life directed by core beliefs that no longer align with our values or our current reality, we experience relationship, physical, & cognitive difficulties, mood swings, anxiety, depression, obsessive thoughts, and compulsive behaviors. We lash out and act out, or isolate and shut down to cope. It doesn't have to be this way. I can teach you how to live a life that allows you to honor your values while maintaining your important relationships and alleviating your concerns. You can achieve this through Core Belief Therapy.

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.
