As a bilingual therapist I am committed to help clients feel comfortable in therapy to reflect on issues and help them make positive changes. I provide individual psychotherapy to adults who are feeling depressed, anxious, grieving because of life transitions. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (I have had extensive training "evidence-based" therapy: "Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Late-Life Depression" developed at Stanford University School of Medicine.) CBT focuses on changing thoughts and behaviors to improve mood.

My name is Cynthia Thomas, LMFT. I am a trauma therapist who typically works with individuals who are adults that are ready to take a look at how the past influences current challenges in life. Trauma shows up in different ways for different people. It could look like feeling anxious, depressed, having relationship issues, or just not having a solid sense of who I am. I work on a few different aspects including the connection between our minds and bodies, our thoughts, different parts of ourselves, and EMDR so you can walk towards healing.

I believe it is completely normal to feel nervous about going to therapy. I've been in therapy before to help me process some unknown feelings when I moved to a new city and went through a divorce. It was helpful to learn how to name and process those emotions. Later on, while I was pursuing my education, I found myself pregnant and alone. Although it was difficult to face, the skills I learned in therapy helped me manage my anger and sadness. I understood that those feelings were completely normal and that everything would eventually "be okay".

I have experience working with many adults, young adults, and children struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, addiction, and life transitions. By allowing me to help you trust the process of therapy we can work on what your needs may be. When we listen wholeheartedly without judgment, we can become aware and attempt to understand what someone may be feeling. The value of helping others can also give someone hope that there is something to look forward to. That's what drives me toward empathy and compassion.

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.
