As an ally in the healing process I am committed to honoring your uniqueness. Your experiences, emotions and perspectives are uniquely personal to you - and so are your solutions. By focusing on your strengths and inspirations I help you discover, use and "own" the parts of yourself that are most authentic. Whether you come to therapy seeking relief from identifiable pain or distress, or whether you come to discover something new about yourself, I believe that something in you already knows what you need. I can help you recognize and connect to this innately wise part of you.

You feel like you’ve lost a part of yourself, and nobody seems to get it. Maybe you went through a friend “breakup,” and your friends and family don’t understand why you can’t just get over it. Maybe your beloved pet passed away and you were given the advice to get a new pet to replace them, but that doesn’t feel right. Maybe you recently moved to a new place, and the grief you feel for leaving your old home is overwhelming. You’re sad, confused, frustrated, numb, sometimes angry or guilty for not being yourself. You’re exhausted to your core, but you still can’t sleep. You’re worried that you’re doomed to feel like this forever.

Evening appointments available - You move through life feeling misunderstood or that you “don’t belong.” You feel this need to people please, to mask, or maybe even be “perfect” in order to be accepted (even though deep down you know you might be shrinking yourself). You try one thing and then another but nothing’s really working (or if it is, it never really feels good enough). You hold an innate desire to be yourself and to be accepted and loved for who you are. You long to create deep connections with others who celebrate your soul but you aren’t quite sure where to begin or how to get there.

Hi there! I strive to create a warm, humorous, and empathic space to focus on just you. Perhaps it's to reflect on how your history is impacting you now. Perhaps it's to develop skills that you haven't learned yet, or unlearn habits that are holding you back. Perhaps you've talked all you can to the people in your life and need a place to keep processing. Maybe you just need more support.

After developing a treatment protocol at the Intensive Program level that was the first in the nation to integrate mindfulness-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ("ACT") with Exposure Therapy in the treatment of OCD, I am continuing that work in private practice. My focus is on helping people respond differently to the physical sensations of anxiety, get some space from "sticky" thoughts, and to return to the present moment.

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.
