Do you ever feel like everything is in place, yet something deep within remains unsettled? You have what you hoped for; the career, relationships, material possessions, stability, and the opportunities. Though it all looks good, it keeps you up at night, disrupts relationships, breeds unfulfillment, and manifests physically. All you want is to live authentically where your inner and outer worlds align. Your journey shapes your ideal life, and I'm here to support you in defining and achieving it. Together, we may tackle negative thoughts, heal attachments, regulate emotions, improve communication, or explore subconscious influence.

Parent who seems to be worried about their child? Teenager that seems to be angry most of the time or "doesn't care" about anything? Families with conflict? Or just someone striving to make life a little better? I can definitely provide the support needed to bring light to your situation. Not support that a friend, parent, or spouse can give but a deeper support that will encourage you to journey through difficulties of many kinds and eventually reach a place of understanding and light. I also specialize in consulting and counseling for student-athletes from middle school through college.

If you are seeking therapy, you've most likely identified patterns in your life that you'd like to change. Do you feel overwhelmed by what seems too large of a mountain to scale? Have you attempted to do the work alone, but often feel hopeless in your pursuit of stability? You may find it comforting to secure a knowledgeable supportive passenger in your journey to reach the destination of growth and healing. The path to this recognition is unique to each person, as is the process of therapy itself.

#1 You are courageous. It is not easy to ask for help or be willing to look at coping strategies or attachment styles that are no longer serving you. I strive to provide an open unbiased environment to develop a comfortable therapist/client dynamic in order to begin processing past or current issues with a focus on goal setting and starting where you're at. Change happens when you believe it can happen and the only failure is in not trying. I strongly believe that there is no destination, only the journey and in focusing on the process and being mindful, you can achieve anything.

Living with Autism, Depression, ADHD, or Anxiety can be incredibly challenging and isolating. Finding the right support and guidance to navigate these complex conditions is difficult. Traditional therapy approaches often fall short of addressing the unique needs and challenges associated with these conditions, leaving individuals and families feeling frustrated and overwhelmed.

Life may feel out of control for you right now. You may be using unhealthy coping skills - like drinking too much, or over eating - and perhaps you are beating yourself up about it. You have no time or space to figure out how to do things differently and don't feel good about how your relationships are going. The pandemic has really highlighted areas in your life that you need to make changes in but you feel stuck. Perhaps you are moving from crisis to crisis and the same cycle keeps repeating itself and you don't know why. Perhaps the ghosts of your past keep sabotaging your present. But there is help and a way out - you can do it!

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.
