I specialize in working with people who are noticing how the negative events and memories of the past are affecting their present lives. This may present as addictions, relational strain, anxiety, stress, or depression. Together we will explore these past events in order for you to write a new story decreasing the intensity of emotions attached to those incidents. I connect with those who identify as Third Culture Children or Cross Cultural Individuals. I strongly empathize with those who identify with multiple cultural aspects. I find that developing your identity while processing through all the layers of life can be challenging.

We are never meant to face the challenges of life alone. When facing these overwhelming tidal waves of life, we often times feel sad, painful, and wanting to isolate ourselves. The way we think and our behavior changes and prevents us from becoming the most authentic version of self. I see therapy as a guided journey where the therapist and the client process the client's subjective experience together. And when it is experienced in a safe, compassionate, culturally sensitive, and encouraging environment, client experiences growth in self awareness and level of insight, which prompts genuine, long-lasting changes that are evident.

I wonder what kind of therapists people scroll through psychology profiles to therapist shop for. When people ask me what my ideal client I actually wonder whats people's ideal therapists? I think this is important when thinking about an ideal client and therapists because I see it as a collaborative work. I'm not here to force you what I think is best for you, therapy is something both the client and therapist figure out together to meet the clients' needs and goals.

Chronic illness sufferers! You know how hard life can feel. Sometimes just getting up in the morning can feel like a monumental task and other times you feel ok. The struggle is never knowing which way it’s going to go. I’ll bet your life would feel easier if you could learn how to cope with this uncertainty, while also finding ways to share your experience with your people. So many of us (yes, us!) attempt to hide our struggles for fear of being looked at as “the sick one” and that takes a toll. Working through your own judgements and anger will help to shift the way you walk through life...even on days you feel like crawling.

You said "I do." "I choose you." You vowed to keep choosing them each day for life. Sometimes the disconnection makes it challenging to recall the vision you had for your future. It is not time to give up on your dream. It is time to dig in, do the work, and live the best version of your relationship. If you are both willing, there is no need to remain in that "stuck" place. There is a way to connect again. Allow yourselves to have hope because you truly can be better than ever.

I believe the "fit", or connection, is crucial to successful therapy. I offer a safe, nonjudgmental setting which fosters clarity and insight and creates the conditions for growth and healing. I use an interpersonal and developmental approach but am also able to work from a different perspective when conditions call for one. I am experienced in helping people with their thought processes as they encounter the difficulties and challenges of life. I work with individual adults, adolescents, and elementary school age children and their families.

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.
