ONLINE SESSIONS NOW AVAILABLE. I help adults recover from childhood and adult trauma with the use of body centered therapies. Unresolved trauma often negatively affects our relationships, careers, and physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual health. People who have experienced trauma are often doing the very best they know how to deal with the emotional and physiological response to what has happened to them. People often don't realize the struggles they are having in their lives can be linked to things that have happened in the past. They try to change their behavior with little to no success, or easily fall back into old habits.

I work with chronic dieters, binge eating disorder, and poor body image. Your body does not determine your value. However, you're surrounded by a culture that tells you it's YOUR fault. You've dieted until you don't even recognize your relationship with food anymore. You can't hear your body, let alone trust it. Your concept of your body and your relationship with it are damaged. You just know you're not what you're supposed to be, not valuable or acceptable.You're binging one moment and dieting the next. We weren't designed to live this way. I can help! I’ve been there. If you’re tired of the weight cycling, let’s work to end it!

You are unhappy, you don't like it, you're willing to take action to change that reality.. That is what a Therapist said to me long before I became a therapist myself. Now I encourage you, Good for you! Willingness is the key to the gate of awakening! Courage is not the absence of fear, it is evolving while being afraid..versus revolving with the same behaviors you've been taught. Time to get better teachers. Time to get to know you, what you want, how to ask for that, from yourself and others. "And the day came when the risk to stay tight in a bud was greater than the risk it took to blossom". Call me. Invest in you, who better?

There are times in all of our lives when we find it difficult to find the answers we've been searching for, when our external world becomes so loud we can't hear that internal voice of wisdom. It can be during those times that a focused hour of introspection, conversation, and reflection can be helpful in finding the answers we've been unable to access by ourselves. My goal is to facilitate that search, whether the focus is relationships, life direction, grieving, or how to make life rewarding.

The fact that you are reading these words tells us you have been attempting to overcome some type of life adversity. We often do not seek this type of help, mostly because of the many negative judgments that have influenced us since our childhood. It is these vary experiences, along with our own perception of them, that has caused and exacerbated the very symptoms we seek help for. It has been my experience that this history needs to be revisited, reviewed, and re-addressed so that we can overcome many of the chronic conditions that affect far too many in this world. “There is no birth of consciousness without pain”, Carl Jung

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.
