Have you been in therapy for years and feel like you are not making progress? Have you been trying to change some maladaptive behaviors like; lashing out at others, giving in/pacifying, avoiding people/situations, or just breaking out of a depressive funk? You are not broken. The discourse may be wrong. We are all shaped by our individual experiences. They represent themselves in the form of memories and they not only define us but often make it hard to change without addressing them directly. If you are ready for change and feel you need to change the discourse, I encourage you to reach out.

I work with people that have discrete, short-term goals as well as those that want to deeply understand their patterns and behaviors. I provide licensure supervision for Ph.D, Psy.D. and LPC.

People I work well with often experience prolonged feelings of sadness or anxiety and want to feel more satisfaction in their lives. They can have behaviors that they can’t seem to rationalize or are counter to their values and goals. My clients often seek help with relationship problems, intense feelings of anger, fear, or shame, traumatic histories, isolation tendencies, or technology issues. Clients with these concerns have found support during my sessions as we build an insight into their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so that they can make informed and conscious decisions as they navigate life's stressors.

I specialize in working with children ages 3 to 6 who are struggling with big feelings, anxieties, and challenging behaviors. While adults find relief in talking over their difficulties with an understanding therapist, children often cannot express their thoughts and feelings in words. Because children often do not have the words to express feelings, they may represent how they feel through acting out. When children have the opportunity to show how they feel through toys, they often feel better because their feelings have been released. You have probably felt something similar when you have been upset and confided in someone caring.

Finding a great therapist is about finding a great fit. My sweet spot is connecting with people in transition following big change; the end of a relationship, career change, adjusting to parenthood, or loss. I also have nearly a decade of experience treating eating disorders, and work with people navigating recovery in the outpatient setting. Finally, I enjoy working with caregivers- those who support loved ones who are struggling with their own mental health.

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.
