I work with folks experiencing symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression using EMDR and parts work (including Ego States and Internal Family Systems). These modalities acknowledge how traumatic experiences can shape our personalities and responses to triggers in ways that are deeply-rooted and challenging to untangle. I strive to help clients see more clearly the direct (or indirect) link between their challenging life experiences and the behaviors they find ineffective for them. If we know the "why" of our responses then we can finally start working toward the "how" of changing it.

You are highly motivated and resilient but find yourself trapped in a cycle of overthinking, self-criticism, or placing the needs of others above your own. Unable to shake the feeling that something is inherently wrong with you or that certain parts of you are unacceptable, you try to numb and hide. Today, you find yourself unable to cope with even the small things. Waking up tired, anxious throughout the day, lying awake at night. Endless workaholism, incessantly consuming self-help content, even engaging in unhealthy but addictive behaviors and relationships. You are seeking healing that is personal, deep, and lasting.

I love couples work! To me, there is no greater fulfillment than helping two individuals reignite what was lost, and create new behaviors that have the ability to create a whole new relationship that both individuals may have lost hope for. Alternatively, couples counseling may also look like learning how to say goodbye, and doing so in the most productive and least painful way possible. The most painful option is to stay stagnant in an unhealthy relationship, having the same conflicts time and time again, and endlessly searching for an answer that isn’t appearing. You and your partner do not have to navigate these waters alone.

Life rarely turns out how we think it will, so when a deeply distressing or disturbing experience occurs, we often struggle to find our next steps. Hope and purpose can become a distant reality. Sometimes, the traumatic event occurs to just one person, but often times, these experiences happen within the context of the family and everyone is impacted. Despite our best efforts to continue on our own, we may need the assistance of another person. At Mountain Valley Counseling, I use an integrated blend of evidence-based techniques as well as a warm, authentic approach to provide hope-filled healing and professional guidance.

Who are you? Have you ever felt confident in being that person? We all struggle to varying degrees to “be ourselves.” Mental illnesses can actually be our subconscious's way of telling us that we are not living authentically. That some part of us feels repressed or underrepresented. I use a systemic approach which means that everything you are makes sense in the context of the life you have lived. We will examine your life from your relationships, and lived experiences, to your personality, and passions. It’s less about changing you, than it is about creating an awareness so that you can make decisions about who you want to be.

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.
