I see a client as a caterpillar in a cocoon, searching to find themselves, growing within, wanting to break free, cracking the shell, spreading their wings, and taking flight into enlightment. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of my client's journey through the therapeutic process. When a client commit's themselves to being vulnerable and exploring new and heathier ways to function, they can experience transformation of self. Each person is a unique individual who possesses the ability to discover their true self that is capable of love, peace, and success.

If you are miserable in your relationship(s), whether with loved ones or yourself, I can help. Folks who benefit most from my help are at a life transition point or at the brink of a new growth stage: in themselves, in their primary relationship, in their family, or in their career – sometimes all at once. Often times these folks feel held back by one key factor, and that key factor is either a challenge in self-knowledge and self-acceptance or an area of past trauma that is unresolved and is therefore blocked from normal growth.

I believe everyone can benefit from therapy. Therapy provides a space that allows one to talk freely without judgment. Therapy can be hard work and with that, it should be a stress-free environment and made enjoyable to attend. I also advocate for physical exercise to help alleviate symptoms of mental health. In my experience, I have seen how talking alone can help. As therapists, we are trained to listen and not just hear what you are saying. Sometimes it takes being heard for the first time for a client to have a breakthrough.

My ideal clients are people who are interested in working on themselves and value personal growth; who share a passion for removing the blocks to intimate connections with themselves and others. I like working with people who have a hard time yielding into connection—who are often excellent givers but have a more difficult time receiving. I enjoy working with individuals who are successful, powerful, or workaholics who struggle with intimacy and connection and who have found external solutions such as achievement, sex, alcohol, exercise, etc. to be lacking in providing a sense of ease, meaning and comfort to their lives.

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.
