Available for virtual therapy. My main goal as a therapist is to get to know you and your specific needs. It is important to discuss common goals and the specifics you want out of therapy. Please do not worry about judgement here, this is a safe space where we can work together to get you back into the mental space you desire. When I started this journey to become a counselor, my path was in addictions to help those struggling with substance abuse. I started as an intern and later landed in a long term care facility where I helped clients achieve their goals of sobriety.

Change is an intrinsic part of life. It is inevitable, often painful even when it is a change that we desire to make. At other times it is thrust upon us. Much of my focus is about navigating change and understanding the forces that have brought us to the point of change or the need to change. Symptoms of depression and anxiety or addiction, for example, are often signs to tell us that something needs to change in our lives. My practice is science based, non-judgemental, collaborative, and my style quickly puts my clients at ease.

Life involves constant changes, and is not always easy. Change is necessary for growth, but can cause confusion and discomfort, which may impair our ability to move towards the fulfilling lives we envision. Feelings of hopelessness and isolation often lead to unhelpful means of coping, which create a new set of problems. No matter what your struggle, you don't have to do this alone. I believe that a supportive, therapeutic relationship, with you in the driver's seat, can provide clarity and direction. My person-centered approach can help you feel more secure as you navigate your own path. I look forward to walking it with you.

Accepting new clients who live anywhere in CT. I am a trauma and anxiety specialist who can help you learn how to regulate your nervous system. Trauma isn't always about what happened to you but rather how your body responded to it. Self regulation depends on having a friendly relationship with your body. Without it we rely on external regulation (meds, drugs/alcohol, food, etc). Together we can ensure you stop repeating the same patterns, improve self-worth, and improve your relationships with others.

I believe that every person has the ability to heal their emotional pain, and this ability is already within. Love, joy, inner peace, belonging, and connection to self and others, are elements that form one's foundation for a meaningful life. This is something we all strive for and sometimes have difficulty attaining. My goal as a therapist is to help individuals find the answers within and to provide them with the guidance, support and encouragement needed to promote healthy change. I work from a strength based, interpersonal, and compassionate approach to empower my clients toward a healthier life.

I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life. Over the past 20 plus years I have seen thousands of clients with a variety of issues. I still am amazed by the resiliency of the human spirit and our ability to make shifts that create major results in our lives. Often people come overwhelmed thinking they need to make major changes, yet I have found that it is usually minor adjustments in our work together that lead to major changes in our daily life.

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.
