Hello there! My name is Tina and I aim to be a warm, authentic, and comforting presence in your life. As a therapist, I'm asking you to be vulnerable and you deserve a soft place to land. Free from judgment. Therapy is about being curious. Exploring thoughts, feelings, and experiences and how they intersect. From which you may feel a more grounded sense of self. I will sit in those heavy emotions with you without trying to immediately fix, solve, or change you. Just accept and validate and be with you before we do any change talk. My goal is for you to attain a sense of self efficacy. I want to see you believe in yourself again.

Being a human can be quite painful at times. We have complex feelings and thoughts some conscious, some unconscious. Trying to navigate life and our relationships can be hard. The beauty of therapy is we don’t have to navigate it alone. Together we can examine what has been coming to mind for you. I offer a calm presence and non judgemental space for you to talk things out. As we talk my hopes are you will embody a greater self awareness, resolve inner conflicts, experience symptom relief, improve relationships, and enhance your self esteem. Through this personal development my clients experience self acceptance.

We all have things in our lives that we want to change, making adjustments starts to happen when we feel we are listened to, cared about and respected. Having a safe place to look at our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and habits in a non-judgmental therapeutic relationship can help us start this journey. I can offer you my years of experience and education to help you begin or even continue your growth. My approach to therapy is to build a relationship with you and get to know what things you like (strengths based) and also what things you want to change.

I am committed to creating a caring, accepting and non-judgmental environment in which clients feel understood, valued, and safe to open up, explore and express their thoughts and feelings. I work with symptoms of anxiety disorders including panic, OCD and phobias using the most effective evidence-based, shorter-term cognitive behavioral and mindfulness based therapies which help reduce acute symptoms within weeks. For people seeking to overcome longer term depression, anger, low self-esteem and self-defeating habits that keep them from living life more fully, I use longer term insight-oriented psychotherapy.

Welcome! If you are here, chances are that you are looking for help. That's okay! Everyone needs help sometimes. In my experience, it's better to ask for it and get it than to struggle and continue to beat yourself up over things. Even for people who don't believe they need counseling/therapy, there are many things they could work on to improve themselves. Whether it's relationships, school or career performance, problem solving or just wanting to become a better person, I believe I can help. Don't you deserve a better, happier life?

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
