I enjoy working with motivated and ambitious couples and individuals who are willing to put in the time and effort that it takes to work on themselves. I believe that starting therapy takes courage; it shows that a person wants more for themselves, their relationship, and their partner. You may have struggled with expressing your needs or advocating for yourself in the past – I can help you to better understand your needs and learn to set boundaries when stress feels unbearable.

Do you sometimes feel ruled by your past? Like there’s a story you've been telling yourself that doesn’t quite fit anymore, but is tough to deprogram. Perhaps you've begun exploring your own identity/ies in various ways, differentiating from your family’s expectations, and asking yourself the big question “Who am I?” and could really use a guide and witness to help make space for your evolution (renaissance). It is normal to feel stuck and not have a clue about how to move forward. Change in life is really hard, and you do not need to go through it alone.

We humans are wired for connection – we need it on the most basic level. But humans are the worst! And the best! Let’s just say: humans are complicated. We need each other, but we hurt each other, so we create these little ways to keep ourselves safe…but those ways might not be working anymore. That’s where we come in - we work with people who are experiencing distress within themselves and in their relationships. Therapy with us focuses on identifying and unpacking the unhelpful beliefs and patterns that keep you stuck, and then learning new ways of relating to yourself and others that make you feel ….. happy!?! It’s possible.

Hello! Thank you for visiting! Families, couples, and individuals typically come to see me due to stress, trauma, and grief, all of which end up impacting connection to self and others. My therapeutic efforts aim to enhance relational attunement and secure attachment. I find, building internal and external resources, managing stress, grieving losses, and increasing tolerance for big emotions as primary ways to be helpful. Individual work can often be very fruitful, however, I conceptualize relationally and often encourage you to extend our efforts into more connection within the relationships valuable to you, including pets!

Being in poly/ENM relationships can be incredibly healing. But, come to find out, healing is hard work! Sharing your loved one with other romantic interests can bring up a shit load of feelings and touch on our deepest attachment wounds. While you may be totally committed to ENM in your brain, your heart is throwing an adult sized temper tantrum and screaming at you to stop the pain. You feel stuck in a loop made of big, uncomfortable feels and unresolved conflict. You're anxious, jealous, scared, and exhausted. You want nothing more than to get out of the cycle and find the connection that brought y’all together in the first place.

Coming from a mixed background is incredible! But sometimes it can feel like you are not enough or you’re doing too much at the same. damn. time! No matter what you do, someone isn’t going to like it. It's as if all your different parts are kept separate and it's hard to feel like anyone can see or know the whole you. This feeling keeps you closed off from others - and yourself. You’re constantly regulating yourself and “acting right” but that shit is painful. You don’t ever feel fully free.

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.
