I approach my work with the family system is wholistic and humanistic focused. I work with each member to the family to capitalize on strengths to acknowledge, explore, and ultimately address presenting challenges. Families take many forms. Every family's story is different. Family members may feel isolated and misunderstood. It is our need for connection, understanding, guidance, support, and empowerment that is universal.

I assist my clients in their quest to move forward in their lives. My approach is both empathic and empowering. I provide a safe environment for my clients to work through the issues that are the basis for why they are seeking counseling. I believe that so much of what we deal with is rooted in past negative beliefs we have adopted over the years, beginning with childhood. Using a variety of tools and techniques, I help my clients create healthier ways of relating to themselves and the world around them.

Are you able to accept yourself as you are right now, while also committing to change? While you may be seeking therapy to get rid of a problem, what if we turn toward that problem, listen to it, and even notice how it is taking care of you? Ironically, this is how problems seem to shift. You may struggle with your capacity to feel present and authentic in your relationships. These struggles may have roots in what you first learned about love and closeness as a little person. In our work you can learn to embrace, understand, and take good care of this early imprint in your adult relationships.

My sincere apologies, I am not taking new clients at this time. I wish you the best in finding a good fit therapist. You may be looking for a therapist because of a crisis of some kind; a depression, a loss, anxiety, or trauma symptoms. I see crisis as an opportunity for growth and love being there for people in their time of greatest need. Crisis can be seen as an invitation to go inward and reflect on what is not working. As a trauma informed psychotherapist with a relational approach, I work collaboratively with clients to identify what is keeping you from living more fully so you can live a more integrated and healthier life.

Why psychoanalysis? In a world demanding of standards, success, happiness, etc. -or else you're dysfunctional-, psychoanalysis offers a space where adaptation is not the goal, it does not aim at 'making you normal', the main focus is desire. Causing the ability to respond to desire in a singular manner, yours, constitutes the core of the discipline, the cure happens in addition. A life where desire is present is worth living, analysis is a unique approach to get and stay there.

Are you struggling with chronic anxious thoughts, low self-esteem, difficulty sleeping, or chronic pain syndromes? If you have been feeling stuck in physical or emotional pain, it is important to know that you are not alone in this, and that there is support available. I understand the interconnectedness of trauma, anxiety, and chronic pain. I know that these experiences can cause anger, resentment, and hopelessness, and hinder the joy and quality of life. However, they are temporary and treatable. I know this because I have been there myself.

It feels heavy a burden to bear alone, and you wonder whether the understanding and connection you crave is within reach. “This can’t be all there is for me/us.” Hey… I promise, it’s not. There is more, there is different, there is “lighter.” But there’s no need to take my word for it. I'm here to help you experience this growth for yourself, with encouragement, empathy and humor.

Much of the human experience is spent on autopilot, operating from habit. We can feel lost, anxious, and unhappy, disconnected with ourselves, not knowing our values or purpose. Automatic negative thinking, old family patterns and triggers can be on repeat. We often work, love, parent, and engage in relationships from this rather unconscious, unfulfilling place. Happiness can feel allusive here. Together, we can explore the process of waking up, to what's inside and discovering how to ground from a place of purpose. Come get curious! Please NOTE: I am an eco-therapist, I see clients in-person outside, or via tele-therapy.

Through growth and development you will experience a fuller life and feelings will start to be manageable and you can imagine going through life with a clear sense of self.

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.
