Career Counseling, Depression/Anxiety are primary specializations. I believe the client is his/her own best therapist and already possesses the necessary wisdom for healing to begin. I can facilitate this process by providing a safe, non-intrusive, supportive environment. I prefer to acknowledge, build and reinforce the client's strengths rather than focus on old negative beliefs. 25+ years experience.

Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, MA, AMFT
When life presents you with more questions than answers, it can be hard to know which way to turn or how to reach a cool calm when you need it most. Finding your next move can be especially challenging when you are faced with so many stressors on a daily basis, not to mention the constantly changing state of the outside world. I get it. As a therapist, I am here to help you find and maintain your center of balance even when things are unclear, unstable, or especially difficult.
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
The experiences and interactions we have throughout our lifetime can have an impact on our well-being, thoughts, emotions, relationships and decision making. As we begin to understand our thoughts, emotions and behaviors we may be able to face life challenges in more effective ways. At times, attempting to understand ourselves without any support can feel confusing or exhausting. In therapy sessions I will provide you with support in a collaborative and safe space as you discuss past challenges or current stressors. Sessions are individually tailored to meet your therapy goals.
We all have experienced times of overwhelm, sadness, and worry, or simply just finding ourselves at a crossroad. These situations can leave us feeling uncertain about how to move forward successfully in our lives. Psychotherapy can help you discover your innate strengths and resources to cope with while also facilitating the process of growth.
Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, SEP, LPCC
I believe in an active process between client and therapist where you can attain new perspectives on your life's challenges and transitions. Sometimes we are aware of difficulties we face, but need a safe environment to create the changes necessary. Our work will include unveiling the valuable gifts that your unconscious holds for you and looking at how your beliefs may be restricting you. I utilize different therapeutic approaches and tools to help you see and experience situations through different lenses. This enables you to make new and healthier decisions and live a more vital and fulfilling life.
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
One of the strongest choices you can make is to ask for help when you really need it. Connecting with an objective, non-judgmental person can help you from feeling stuck as you find answers to questions like: How do I deal with a complicated relationship? What is my true calling? How do I navigate my way through anxiety, stress, depression and addiction? Why do I keep making the same old choices? What do I need to do to feel better? Therapy is a profound step in creating the clarity you're seeking to lead a more stable, sustainable life.

Are you a gay male finding that the life you have cultivated for yourself is unfulfilling? Do you sometimes feel you have no idea what you are doing or where to even begin? How about navigating through life in a committed gay relationship, but finding that you and your partner just can't seem to get on the same page? You may also be in your early twenties and thirties feeling like you don't fit in with those you have held close relationships with your entire life or adult life. Even with increased acceptance and representation, some gay men find that they are experiencing even more mental health issues than before.
Sandra J Brim
With many years of experience, I facilitate client's growth through techniques designed to take people deeply into their "shadow" side while acknowledging that therapy is a relationship where healing can take place by assisting the individual in being seen for who they really are, freeing them up to be who they are, whether they have felt excluded or have been traumatized or struggling to find healthy relationships. Experience with all ages allows me to help clients with whatever issue they bring to our relationship. My ideal client has suffered a loss or failure. The pain from this motivates them to want change and growth.
Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, AMFT
I am hoping to find people who need some help negotiating this wild world of ours (CBT, EMDR). I prefer to work with people over 18, individuals and couples (Gottman Couple's Therapy). Unresolved trauma can make living a happy and fulfilling life seem out of reach. It isn't. Everyone is capable of living a happy, joyous, and free life. I am currently adding private pay clients.
Psychologist, PsyD, NSCA
Do you have an autoimmune disorder, hormonal dysregulation, GI problems, imbalanced eating or weight, brain or cardiac issue, or other chronic / complex health condition? You should've received support and resources to deal with or heal from your diagnosis, but it's likely you haven't gotten what you deserve from the healthcare system. Maybe just more trauma. Even worse, this issue is pulling apart your self-esteem, peace of mind, and relationships, which are priceless and irreplaceable. If you feel frustrated and exhausted trying to manage your overwhelming situation, I am here to help.
Dr. Traci Bank Cohen
If you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or inadequate, I can help you. If you find yourself making the same choices despite wanting different outcomes, I can help you. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental space so that you can better understand yourself, your relationships, and your patterns of behavior. Together, we will discover root causes to current problems and directly address the underlying source of distress, so that change is effective and long-lasting.
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LPCC, LMFT
Are you feeling overwhelmed and stressed? These can be symptoms of your life being impacted by past events. I specialize in the treatment of sexual trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, PTSD and addiction with individuals, couples and families. Together we will create a safe space where you can feel and be heard. As we explore and reprocess past traumas, we begin to lighten the emotional burden we’ve carried, and sense of relief is experienced. I utilize EMDR, CBT, mindfulness and other approaches to assist adolescents and adults with developing insight and feeling empowered to change behaviors and thoughts that no longer serve them.
Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, AMFT, C-RYT
My aim as a clinician is to treat the soul, not the symptoms. As a depth-focused psychotherapist I strive to focus on the individual, not their diagnosis or symptomology. My ideal clients are people who not only wish to address their mental health, but develop a deeper understanding of oneself. I have worked alongside clients to address Anxiety Disorders, including Social Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Mood Disorders, Attachment Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Addiction. My goal is to help clients achieve relief from their mental health by working to heal the wounded aspects of themselves.

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.
