Hardships and life circumstances often create suffering and obstacles that may appear to be insurmountable on our personal journey to health and happiness. These challenges often blind us to new opportunities, dim the joy and activity in our day-to-day experience, and ultimately can make us feel like a completely different person. However, this same adversity can be the stimulus for incredible growth. When we identify our strength and resiliency, we will rediscover our purpose and create confidence that even future challenges will be met with success.

You feel tired and disconnected. Big chunks are missing from your memory. Sometimes it feels like you’re watching yourself walk through life, like you would watch a movie. You know that you’ve been through trauma but it’s hard to feel it. When big emotions do come, they seem to come out of nowhere, and are triggered by the littlest things. You can’t turn off your brain while trying to fall asleep, even though you are exhausted. You are hypervigilant and never feel truly safe. You tell yourself that what happened to you isn’t “big deal”. You should just “get over it” and use mind over matter—but that’s not how trauma works.

My ideal clients are adults experiencing burnout in helping professions, or who are at a transitional time in life. You know there is more out there, but you are stuck in a routine of your own making that doesn’t match what you know is possible. My clients are most often highly intelligent, self aware, and marginalized people who have a history of trauma and have struggled with perfectionism and over-achieving their entire lives. You may people please, feel overly empathetic and drained by others’ problems and emotions, or wonder why others don’t notice the larger, systemic issues at work or in society that seem so obvious to you.

You've heard of PTSD. You think you might have it. You don't know what to do about it. Your sleep is an issue because you have nightmares. Even when you don't have nightmares, you don't feel rested in the morning. You avoid pieces and parts of your life because you fear being triggered by past trauma. When the stress increases in your life, you notice higher anxiety and scarier thoughts. You want to let go of the abuse and trauma of the past. Maybe you've heard about EMDR, but you don't know where to start. When you're ready to deal with trauma, you want to start as soon as possible.

Each one of us is capable of living a life of authenticity, connection, meaning, and joy. Yet so much can get in the way. Early on, we're taught to believe that something is wrong with us - we're the wrong size, the wrong gender/sexuality/race, have the wrong talents/goals. We're taught to strive for a limited vision of success. On top of these cultural pressures, many of us experience trauma such as emotional/physical abuse. Is it any wonder that so many people suffer from unhappiness, depression, anxiety, self-criticism, and disempowerment?

I have never liked the thought of the "ideal client" because I always like a challenge and, even more than that, a good story. I like listening to people's stories and helping them to look at them from different angles to get a more total, meaningful, and healthy view of themselves and their experiences. In that sense, I guess my ideal client is one ready to do such a deep exploration of themselves and their experiences with the goal of giving even the worst circumstances meaning and gaining the best of their lives.

The times when stress and traumas overwhelm us, we can forget our strengths, skills, and insight.

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.
