Someone once told me, everything takes work. Do you want to do the work of marriage, or the work of divorce? I help clients who want to do the work of marriage, either in couples sessions or individual sessions for those whose spouse won't attend couples sessions. Dr. Edith Eger observed that the issues that we face in a marriage don't dissolve with a divorce; we simply carry them into our next relationships until we look inward and heal ourselves. In doing so, we can better understand our part in the dynamic and learn to relate in a more effective way to build connection and fulfillment in our marriage.

I specialize in treating individuals who suffer from chronic, persistent depression or difficulty regulating emotions, and find themselves using substance abuse or other unhealthy behaviors to manage their symptoms. I join with my clients to uncover what is maintaining those unhealthy patterns and learn new skills to cope. I also work with clients to identify how developmental trauma from childhood influences their coping style, and help them develop self-compassion and acceptance as a part of healing.

My name is Katherine and I am a licensed therapist. I have a deep passion for this work as I too, have endured my own personal struggles related to trauma, anxiety and depression. Growing up, I had a strong will, often feeling that I needed to hold in my feelings and handle life on my own. After I endured various traumatic events in my life, I sought out therapy. Reaching out to a therapist was a terrifying first step for me. It was hard for me to imagine that I could trust a stranger to hold my pain. Being vulnerable was my greatest fear.

I am a trauma informed therapist who works from an intersectional lens to support my clients, especially those who have traditionally been misunderstood or pathologized by the mental healthcare system. I specialize in working with clients who are queer, non-monogamous, or kinky and desire a brave space to explore these parts of their identity. I also work with people who are questioning their own religious beliefs and identity and may be unpacking religious trauma. I enjoy working with adults, teenagers, and couples navigating major life transitions or who seek to understand themselves better.

We are each born with the capacity to live a full, joyous and productive life. Through the natural events of our less than perfect world, this capacity is diminished. In some way we know that this is possible and at the same time realize that we are limited. The area of limitation may be in our relationship to ourselves - somehow being unable to experience compassion or appreciation for our own beings. These limitations create pain and unnecessary suffering. Just as we have the capacity for living full and productive lives, I believe that we all have the capacity for healing.

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.
