"Over the past few years, the demand for mental health services has increased. The field of mental health, in efforts to meet this demand, has caused the technique of counseling to become commercialized. When I created Harris & Harris my mission was to create a business practice that was ethically driven to get back to the basics of counseling. Customer volume should never be a measurement of success within a business, but providing consistent quality service should always be a measurement standard."

Is your child anxious, easily angered, or struggles to focus at school? Maybe your child has difficulties with friends, everyday emotions and seems to not express emotions in a healthy way? Please rest easy. You're in the right place. So many children have similar difficulties and it's extremely frustrating as a caregiver when you just don't know how to help. Because children's brains are developmentally wired differently, they don't often express emotions easily with words. Since traditional talk therapy isn't generally effective with little ones, I use play therapy to help my young clients.

Change can happen the moment you decide to move toward it, as you may be doing right now. My role is to help you find your personal power and express it, while releasing beliefs, emotions, and habits that do not serve your true self. I want to help you develop your creative and productive skills to create the life you want, while providing emotional support through your journey. I work with many clients learning they are neurodivergent later in life, many that struggle adapting to college, and clients working toward body acceptance.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired? Most people want to change, but don't know what steps to take. "Be transformed through the renewing of your mind." I believe that most people make choices based on their emotions. What happens when these emotions don't reflect the reality of your circumstances? The idea is, to change how you feel you must first change how you think. I love working with individuals who are motivated to change how they see themselves and the world around them.

I believe therapy is about growth, healing and relationship. We all carry burdens which weigh on us daily. Some heavier than others. At Mercer Counseling Center, therapy is not approached as a method of "fixing" people. Therapy is viewed as a path which leads to shifts and changes in one's life which can provide more peace, personal growth and healing for both the mind and body. I utilize a systemic approach in order to allow individuals and families to view problematic issues from a larger, more holistic perspective in hopes of capturing more opportunities for change, healing and relationship.

It takes such courage to begin therapy, congratulations on taking the first step! I believe therapy can benefit us all, and I love seeing the positive changes in my client's lives and families as they process trauma, learn new skills and come to understand things in new, healthier ways. I see clients of all ages, but I most enjoy working with teens and tweens, the quirkier and messier the better. Together we can build an alliance that allows them to feel safe and heard, and develop skills that will have life long benefit.

I am particularly interested in working with clients who are hoping to overcome perfectionism, self-doubt, and uncertainty in order to live the lives they dream for themselves. These challenges often show up as frequent worry, difficulty making decisions, persistent self-criticism, and taking on excessive responsibility for others. I also find fulfillment in supporting those who are navigating life transitions, whether this be a new career or becoming a parent, or a less expected transition such as grief or divorce. Additionally, I have extensive experience working with those who are recovering from traumatic experiences.

We all protect ourselves to survive. When faced with overwhelming distress, people cope in the best way they know at the time. We avoid. We distract, perhaps throwing ourselves into work or activities that force the distress out of mind. We try to lessen our pain with addictions or obsessive behaviors. We bottle it up. These are understandable ways of managing our hurt. But over time we become stuck in our protections, and we lose that most vulnerable part of ourselves that allows us to fully engage with life and deeply connect with others. We focus so much on surviving that we neglect to live.

Se dice que las familias son la base de la sociedad, pero también son objeto de constante agresión que busca derribar su estructura. Cada año somos testigos de cómo las familias/individuos se destruyen y lastiman a través de divorcios, adicciones, abandono de hogar, y violencia doméstica entre otros. Estos ataques producen diferentes tipos de resultados negativos que tienen que ser atendidos con sus respectivas características y peculiaridades. Cada caso es distinto, ejemplo: una pareja que se pelea y piensa en el divorcio requiere cierto tipo de atención, un joven que amenaza con irse de la casa es otro caso distinto.

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.
