When I am able to, I offer sliding scale rates to college age adolescents/young adults to help them have access to quality, experienced care.
My goal is to gently lead clients toward discovering their blocks to personal growth and fulfillment. I believe it is vital to develop coping strategies in order to experience relief from painful symptoms while gaining insight into your core beliefs. These beliefs can create blocks to achieving the life you want. They govern the way you walk through the world, your thoughts, feelings and behavior. You are not what happened to you, you are what you choose to become. My specialties include individuals seeking to gain mood regulation, recover from trauma, improve self-esteem and create healthy relationships.

I specialize solely in the psychological testing and assessment of children, adolescents, and adults , providing both traditional and collaborative/ therapeutic assessments focused on the following areas: Learning Disability, Giftedness, Neuropsychological Screening, Developmental Delays, ADHD, Emotional and Interpersonal Functioning, Personality Assessment, Diagnostic Assessment, and Assessment of Thought Process and Disorder.
The clients that I collaborate most effectively with are those who are in a place of thoughtful contemplation-curious about their lives, their symptoms, their struggles and successes, and the impact of their decision making on their everyday experience. Through both traditional "information gathering" assessment and innovative "collaborative/ therapeutic assessment," together we can begin to better understand you within the context of your life experiences, cultural affiliation, and familial background and history, and set the stage for growth. My goal is to make our assessment a positive and useful experience, and to help you create positive therapeutic changes in your life.

How can I find a therapist in Lakewood?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

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.

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.

What type of therapist is right for me?

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.

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 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.

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.
