Hi there! As a therapist, I have an empathetic and direct communication style. I will listen thoughtfully and approach you with curiosity as you share who you are with me. I use talk therapy and art therapy techniques to visualize and process past experiences. I strive to remain steadfast in grace, truth, and compassion as we develop our shared understanding of your past and present. I will gently challenge harmful thinking/patterns and offer support as we process painful emotions and experiences. I also provide a Christian faith-based, Biblical approach to those who want to include that perspective in our process.

The thought of going to therapy can be overwhelming and scary, but it doesn't have to be. As your therapist, I will hold a safe space for you, free from judgement and provide plenty of support. This will be a place where you can heal from past traumas and/or present issues that are making you feel stuck. I will meet you where you are and only take you where you want to go. I have over eight years of experience in both mental health and hospital settings. I started my career as an ER Social Worker at CHOC and most recently was with the County of Orange providing psychological evaluations for suicidal and homicidal minors.

Everyone is experiencing unique challenges right now. Some are considering therapy for the first time. Reach out. Get the support you need. Times of stress can bring out ways of coping that are not useful or helpful, they can surface old wounds and patterns that are painful. Take the time and space you need to take care of yourself. Whether you just need to work on the anxiety related to your life right now or you want to finally get to the roots of "stuck" patterns, this is a good time to start.

I believe that it is through the relationship with a caring and competent psychotherapist that clients experience emotional recovery and growth. I focus on the "here and now" in helping clients develop strategies to solve problems. Some clients come to therapy because they want to make significant and long-lasting changes in their lives; they want to change patterns of behavior that have not met their needs well in the past. I work to help these clients identify difficulties in how they cope with and solve problems and to develop new coping skills.

As a Therapist, I work with a deep sense of compassion and curiosity to provide the best support in a sacred- therapeutic space processing thoughts, feelings, emotions, and beliefs. The process usually entails asking difficult questions about the perpetual positioning and interpretations of past/ current situations. I'm curious to see what will emerge during our sessions and how the shift in perspective will create a more empowering version of yourself.

Helping children, adolescents, and their families is important to me. Having spent 17 years working with children in educational settings, I understand the struggles families face when dealing with behavioral and social issues, poor academic performance, learning disabilities, and mental health issues. Families may be faced with unexpected challenges such as loss of a loved one, loss of a job, or divorce. Not being able to help your child or teen with problems they face, or not being able to bring your family together as a loving unit can be frustrating and disheartening as a parent.

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.
