Openings available! Hello there! Many times the chaos life throws at us leaves us processing difficult things on our own, without a community to walk alongside, which leaves us unsure how to proceed. Before long, the anxieties, depressions, and traumas of the human experience will haunt us in one way or another. Individuals who have recently embarked upon the decision to change some part of their story inspire me with their desire to discover life anew. If you are hungry to grow into the awareness of how we end up belonging with ourselves, our pasts, and with those alongside us, I might be the resource you have been looking for.

Many people experience mental health concerns that feel isolating, like anxiety, grief, depression, loneliness, and more. Some have a traumatic or difficult past that can surge to the surface unexpectedly, making your day difficult. Nobody is too far gone, crazy, or unreasonable for experiencing these things. I like to jump in with you and figure it out together! I fit my services to you, rather than expecting you to fit to me. I like to learn what makes you grow, change, and be motivated, and then go from there.

Trying to manage life alone can have devastating results. My desire is to help connect people back to the Father and to therefore see them thrive in such a way that they become healthy, healed positive agents for change in their families and communities. My goal is to help people thrive in their spiritual, social, mental, emotional and practical lives. While enjoying individual therapy, I also offer couples counseling, alongside my Bride of 20+ years, Te Anna, a licensed therapist. We have noticed that when we counsel couples together it provides more of a balanced kingdom perspective for the relationship. Telehealth also available.

I view our life journey as a collection of experiences that influence who we are and how we see the world. We often experience (and can expect) to deal with hurdles and roadblocks that can make some days unbearable. This is where counseling comes in. I love joining alongside others and empowering them to keep making steps when they don’t think they can. I will always admit to any client that counseling is hard and applaud anyone who takes the step to reflect inward and grow. My hope and main priority are to create a space where ALL individuals feel safe enough to be their authentic selves.

When viewing therapy as a journey, clients are the one who take the steps and therapists are there to walk alongside them. While on their own journeys, children, adolescents and young adults are striving to develop their distinct sense of self and establish meaningful relationships with those around them. Supporting your child/teen comes with its own set of stressors that can lead you to feel unsure of what to do next. I believe that our childhood experiences impact how we connect and relate with others as adults. Trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, grief and other life stressors can deeply impact how we make meaning.

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.
