I am a deeply empathic person who will offer you the safety to explore and know your experience, and then will structure your helping process around a holistic understanding of where you are now. Our work together focuses on your goals to get you to your version of personal wellness. Please call or email so we can talk more!

When you’re suffering from anxiety, depression, or other mental health concerns it can be difficult to get out of bed, let alone build the life of your dreams. To others, you may appear lazy, or without motivation when in truth you have goals and dreams, but your mental health keeps you from reaching for them. You want to improve your mental health so you can get out of this rut and enjoy the life you’re meant to live.

Currently accepting clients interested in EMDR. I am a trauma-informed therapist trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR is a structured psychotherapy that primarily focuses on treating individuals who have experienced distressing, traumatic events. These experiences, when unprocessed, can become “stuck” in the brain, leading to a wide array of emotional and psychological difficulties. I have seen firsthand the transformative power of this modality and am thankful to have the knowledge and training to guide people on their healing journey.

An ideal client for my practice will be someone older than 30 y/o who is dealing with anxiety, depression and any trauma related issues (mistrust, PTSD, somatic complaints, nightmares, sexual dysfunction, low self-esteem just to mention a few). Potential clients should be committed to change as they have realized that avoidance has not gotten them anywhere. This person values the therapeutic relationship, is looking for someone that not only listen but also and most importantly, helps them to overcome their problems in a collaborative effort. Recognizing the importance of the mind-body connection in the healing process is a plus.

Starting therapy takes courage, especially if it is new to you or if you have heard negative things about the topic of mental health. Often, my clients are considering therapy for the first time or they are returning to therapy after many years. It is usually when something very difficult or unexpected is happening in their life and they just do not know where to start, are feeling alone, or confused. You are taking an important step toward finding the support you need. I appreciate how uncomfortable beginning this process can be, and together we will figure it out.

I bring a down-to-earth approach to what can be a difficult, but rewarding, process. I have been practicing since 1999 and have learned, without a doubt, that people heal and grow when they feel safe, not judged and understood. So, that is exactly what you can expect. I work deeply and emphasize teaching clients about their emotional lives. Psychological difficulties are often rooted in barriers to knowing, understanding or supporting ones feelings and needs. This leads to emotional distress and is at the root of anxiety, depression, and the impact of trauma. This is often the emphasis of therapy.

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.
