I see the work that I do with my clients as a journey, an inner journey, to help clients discover why they sometimes think, feel, and act in unsatisfying ways. My objective is to encourage them to use their strengths and resources to rediscover the whole and complete person that is their authentic self. Through this journey, I strive to help clients achieve the change required to view things differently and to live a more joyful and peaceful existence with meaning and purpose.

My goal as a therapist is to witness your story and guide you to a place of healing. I believe the most essential part of therapy is the therapeutic bond that occurs as a result of working with an individual over a period of time. There has been no greater reward in my career as a counselor than witnessing a client’s growth and helping them reach their fullest potential. I am non-judgmental in my approach and enjoy the uniqueness in individuals and the learning that takes place from working with clients from various backgrounds.

The ideal client is someone who wants to get a different perspective, who wants to address personal challenges and recognizes that their life's work is defined by how well they manage those challenges. I am interested in working with people who want to live their best lives. Spiritual emergence is the term that best describes the process of self-discovery and self-actualization. Spirituality in this context is the realization of one's potential and the recognition that the things that get in the way are the inevitable hurdles to transformation.

I strive to hold a safe space to navigate the highs and lows of this journey called life! I align with mindfulness-based practice along IFS (Internal Family Systems). Exploring how old patterns developed at a younger age can impact the way we interact in relationships as an adult. We can explore together how past events can impact our present moment and unburden parts that still play a challenging role in your life today. Challenging childhoods, relationships and experiences may have resulted in picking up old belief systems that no longer serve us.

As a writer and counselor, I believe in the power of words and stories for healing. We are exposed to many messages as we journey through life, both from others and ourselves. These messages have a profound impact, influencing our thoughts, emotions and behaviors, and can become detrimental to our mental health. Thus, my goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, affirming atmosphere for you to explore these personal messages, and to walk beside you as you create a more hopeful and meaningful narrative. I believe you already contain the seeds of hope and recovery within you; I would be honored to help you discover and cultivate them.

While experiencing pain is a part of the human experience, long term suffering does not have to be. Life brings with it a rich and vast set of experiences which can include complex and confusing family dynamics, navigating relationships, death of a loved one or an animal, an end of a relationship or friendship and existential questions around who we are, what our purpose(s) are in life and why we matter. For some people these existential questions and the emotions that accompany them have come closer to awareness in the face of climate change.

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.
