ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS and I accept medicaid Navigating through life can sometimes feel overwhelming. Life can kick us in the gut and making it hard to catch our breath. Sometimes feelings are overwhelming without a reason. Reaching out for help seems like one more thing. It sometimes feels like you are shattered into a billion pieces. I get it, we've all been there. I work mostly with teens, having been a troubled and angry depressed teen myself. I have seen people take the broken pieces of their lives and create beauty. I can walk with you on that journey to healing.

I am an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Addiction Counselor. Currently I am working telehealth only using the Zoom format. Due to reduced office costs, I am able to offer sessions reasonably priced at $75. I work with the male and female adult population, primarily on an individual basis. I also work with couples in certain situations. In general, I believe couples are better served meeting with a therapist in person. I will be happy to meet with you briefly in consultation, usually 15 or 20 minutes by phone or zoom to discuss your needs and answer any questions.

One of my professional strengths is helping others build confidence, communication skills, and resiliency. I primarily work with youth, but serve all ages and backgrounds. By providing psychoeducation on the body and mind connection and it's responses to stress (eg: brain development, role of hormones, etc.) along with skill development, we can learn to regulate our emotions ,and how to communicate more effectively. Once we understand the Why behind our feelings and reactions we can begin to control the How in our reactions.

If you feel like you’re fairly self aware but still feel stuck in patterns you don’t want and your awareness is characterized by self criticism and harshness, I encourage you to reach out and see if we’d be a good fit to work together. The root of so many mental health challenges can be found in your relationship with yourself, in the capacity to be attuned to yourself while moving through life and in the ability to be with difficult emotions without getting stuck in them. Trauma is an adaptation to a specific set of circumstances that were not ideal and often results in an impairment in your relationship with yourself.

We are not really taught what it takes to be in a healthy relationship. Honestly, most of us are winging it based the function or dysfunction that we saw from our parents without even realizing that is what we are doing. While most of us are doing our best in our relationships, without intentions or tools we can create habits and behaviors that end up causing disconnect and dissatisfaction with our partners. What if you could learn new tools to be able to feel connected? What if working through conflict didn't have to be a traumatic experience every time it came up?

Life comes with great potential for joy, growth, and connection. However, life also brings with it the opportunity for painful or traumatic experiences which can make connecting to joyful emotions, feeling safe within relationships, or experiencing trust difficult-if not impossible. This might make you feel stuck, powerless to intense emotions, or believing that unlovable or broken. I want to work with you to help re-establish a sense of safety, harmony with emotions, and let go of past experiences which may keep you stuck in emotional states that are no longer serving you.

You deserve a full and meaningful life. The voice that says otherwise is often born of dysfunctional family conditions and traumatic events. The resulting coping habits cause so much suffering. In an attempt to find relief, you act in counterproductive ways to avoid the pain: denial, isolation, screens, self-medicating, dysfunctional relationships, etc... Sadly, this tends to worsen things. Your confidence and self-esteem are diminished. Your life, relationships, and career suffer. Then toxic self-reliance shames you into believing you're a failure for not fixing yourself. The situation can feel hopeless. But you can find relief.

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.
