Hi! I have a variety of experience working with different ages, couples, and families. Some areas we focus on are managing depression and/or anxiety and developing healthier communication skills. My goal with clients is to help guide them into a more balanced experience on this journey of life while also empowering them to recognize the strengths that were already within them. Lastly, I'm also bilingual so I provide therapy in English and in Spanish!

Living in a world of endless flux can make it difficult to reach out and seek help. I assess the forces that shape our psychological distress and consider how building upon empathy and connection can lead to a healthier state of being. My approach focuses on issues of identity, relationships, race, gender, class, and post-human development.

First responders and their families serve a great purpose in our society, but often times that service comes with its share of challenges. For more than 10 years, I’ve worked side by side with first responders, having the privilege to learn their stories. In my practice, I focus on first responders as well as their families. This can include a focus on the individual-their strengths, their struggles and their overall health and mental wellness, and also a focus on the role of the system-family, friends, work or community with a common goal to create support for success.

Sometimes it helps to talk about life's struggles and pain with someone who listens and understands. Sometimes we have become distant from the people most important to us and need help repairing relationships. Sometimes the people we needed to care for us have hurt us and we need help healing. Sometimes we have done things we regret and need help moving forward. Everyone desires to be known and accepted, but sometimes things happen to cause us to withdraw and give up on connecting with others. I would like to help you find healing, hope, and connection in your life.

I believe therapy is one way we can start to unpack all that life has thrown at you. If you're feeling stuck, lost, or at wits' end, or if you're relationally or professionally dissatisfied, therapy may be a source of great help to you.

This kind of depth-oriented treatment is well suited for those interested in both symptom relief and greater self-understanding. My hope is that our work together will bring lasting and meaningful change to your life.

Sometimes, for me, it can feel like an impossible act to balance life as a father, husband, son, brother, friend, colleague, and working professional. There are days I feel insufficient, inadequate, guilty, as if I could have done more…or less. There are times I feel like an imposter, like I don’t deserve the things that come my way. I ruminate. I overthink. And I wrestle with negative judgments and lowered self-esteem. If you relate to these issues, then know I see you; and, you are not alone. My hope is that through this process you start to feel rested, heard, understood, and as if you deserve what you’ve earned.

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.
