My undergraduate studies gave me an exposure to the mental health component of sports performance. It wasn’t until my graduate studies that I realized mental health was equally important for athletes. This realization was my ‘light bulb’ moment that athletes should have access to trained professional counselors to assist them as they face mental health challenges. An athlete’s mental health is often overlooked and can impact their ability to compete. My goal is to provide tools that foster positive mental health in sport and in life.

When you're tired of arguing, feeling unappreciated, misunderstood or drifting too far apart, it's time to get some help for your relationship. Contrary to myths about therapy, it's a relationship strength to reach out for support when you’re stuck in negative patterns with those you love. Research shows that many couples wait years beyond when they should get help, & this makes the task much more difficult. As someone who has been a client & a therapist, I know it can be so daunting to start therapy, & I am here to help you navigate the process that so many couples wish they would have started sooner. Your relationship is worth it!

Many of us don’t grow up in environments where it’s okay to have or express a range of feelings. That can lead to problems later in life when you need to understand and process what you’re experiencing. You may find yourself struggling with anxiety, anger management, relationships, and family conflicts. For men in particular, that could lead to sexually addictive behaviors and related issues. While it might seem you’re alone in this, roughly 10% of men say they struggle with pornography use. I specialize in helping those in the military, veterans, first responders and others deal with these and related challenges.

You are a woman who feels anxious constantly. Your heart pounds, your mind races and you walk into a room and forget why you are there. You have too much on your plate and there is not enough time in the day to accomplish everything. Your relationships suffer because you are irritable, and you find yourself asking over and over again for help that you never seem to receive. Your sleep isn’t great and you find that the coping skills that once worked just don’t have the same impact anymore. Your anxiety is overwhelming and endless. With so many people relying on you, it’s time that you slow down and invest in yourself.

I am a trained professional and fellow human being who respects and values the power of a healing relationship.

Or perhaps you've been dealing with this for a while and you feel stuck; you still can't trust or forgive, can't stop thinking about what happened, and worry about it happening again? I understand how you feel and am so deeply sorry that you're going through this.

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.
