I understand life may be challenging! Through personal life experiences and faith, I have realized that there was/is a wide-spread need to aid the hurting within our communities. While we can rejoice, and we can also experience days of sorrow. Such days lend themselves to one experiencing anger, sadness, despair, anxiety, and pain. Learning and effectively being able to implement coping, grounding, self-regulation, and de-escalation skills will be important to live a healthy life.

Effective therapy looks different for each person, whether it is having a safe space to express things you have long held inside, building insight into destructive patterns in your life, or learning specific skills to improve your mood or navigate daily stressors. My goal is to meet my clients where they are now and work together toward improving their quality of life, addressing past traumas and adverse experiences that continue to affect their life in the present, and helping them identify and take steps toward their goals. I have found therapy to be hugely healing in my own life, and I hope always to do the same for my clients.

The infancy and early childhood period is critical for emotional and behavioral development. Both ordinary and challenging events such as sleep and eating routines, school entry, family separations and conflict, illness, or trauma can push development and relationships off track, leading to worrisome problems at home and school. Young children speak their own language-- one that is not always easy to decode. I work with children ages 0 to 10 and their caregivers to understand the meaning of behavior problems and symptoms and help caregivers work with child and with one another to get development back on track.

I provide affirming and trauma-informed care which conceptualizes individual mental health within a sociopolitical and cultural context. This is particularly important to understanding the experiences of individuals within invalidating and discriminatory environments. I know the impacts of minority-based stress and trauma cannot be addressed merely through changing your thinking. My aim is to help you develop coping skills, insight, and resiliency to thrive in our challenging world. Additionally, as a queer therapist, I aspire to offer a safe space for LGBTQIA+ identity exploration. I specialize in PTSD and gender dysphoria.

It is very easy to be overwhelmed by stressors when you do not have the tools to manage them. Many people never had the opportunity to learn how to understand their emotions, manage distressing situations or communicate their needs to others. Without the necessary tools even a small task can feel almost impossible. My goal is to provide you with a safe and non-judgemental environment where we can work together to help you gain the tools and confidence you need to navigate your life more effectively.

I have been in private practice for over 30 years and believe that people can truly change their lives. People can take very difficult experiences in their lives and use them to develop a more meaningful life. I draw from my own experiences while I work with my clients and believe that change can happen at any age. People can use grief, loss, trauma and life's most difficult experiences to develop meaning that they may never have had. Finding your own spirituality and your own style of coping is what makes it unique.

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.

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.

What type of therapist is right for me?

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.

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 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.

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.
