I work with teens and adults, couples and families. I work with people to help them better meet the challenges they face; from traumatic stress, ADHD, anxiety or depression, to building more rewarding relationships and careers. Relationship problems, problems at work, parenting challenges, and a counter-productive relationship with yourself--how you motivate yourself and how you talk to yourself--are all areas in which I have many years of experience. Making healthier lifestyle choices, and sticking with them, coping with health conditions, and compulsions and addictions are also conditions I have extensive experience treating.

I specialize in treating children: preschool through middle school. When appropriate, parents are also included in my sessions. My practice is based on INSIGHTS into Children's Temperament, a program I developed that is available in multiple states. INSIGHTS works by improving children's behavior and by teaching parents to use strategies specifically tailored to their child's unique temperament/personality. The program has scientifically proven to treat children with ADHD and other type of behavior problems --without the use of medication. INSIGHTS also assists children who are anxious cope better with their stressors.

There are times in our lives when responsibility and the stress of life seem to weigh us down. Who understands better than you? Fear and worry, sadness, life transitions and loss rob us of our joy and drain our energy. Although for some it may be somewhat intimidating, the decision to seek counseling is an important step in gaining insight and finding options. Having a trained professional listen without judgement can be a liberating experience. Finding practical ways of dealing with your concerns together with someone who understands provides a level of hope and some initial confidence.

Let's work together to assess what is holding you back, break negative patterns and build a "big picture" of your life that reflects YOU. Yes, change can be difficult and scary at first but on the other side is greatness and peace. Let me be with you in this process. You are worth it.

Most people who come in to see me usually wind up uttering a version of this in the first weeks: “This is not how I thought my life would turn out.” They seem unaware that many of us have felt this way at one time or another. People are hurting when they make a call to a therapist. They’re “stuck,” and yet anxious about the therapy process. They want change. But how to go about making it happen? Llfe is by definition unpredictable. No matter how we plan or adequately prepare for it, it comes down to sorting out the difficult from the more difficult when decisions have to be made.

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.
