I hope to be that warm connection to a therapist that you have been seeking. Welcome! Congratulations on taking that first step towards personal growth and transformation - let's take the next part of your journey together. I can help you tackle those issues that have been keeping you stuck, to help you to move toward clarity, just by helping you discover the internal resources that you already possess.

My intention as a therapist is to be your guide on your journey to healing. I believe everyone has the ability to heal and create the life they have always dreamed of. Many times we have unconscious blocks that keep us from living the life we want. These "blocks" are often unhealed wounds that cause individuals to have negative beliefs, anxiety, depression, and even physical symptoms. I can assist you in identifying these blocks and restoring the natural balance with your mind, body, and spirit.

Do you feel burdened or like you are not able to live life with freedom, joy and peace? Whether we have hurts from the past or anxiety and depression that seem overwhelming; it can be helpful to have someone there who understands and provides non-judgmental, supportive feedback. When we experience challenges, crisis and difficult circumstances; important goals in therapy are learning to identify how our thoughts trigger our emotions and developing coping skills to process them.

Sometimes when life throws us a curve ball, or when we are dealing with a more chronic, ongoing challenge, talking to a therapist can help us see our inner strengths and abilities which can help us successfully navigate through these challenging times. A good therapeutic relationship, one that allows us to be fully ourselves while recognizing our unique potential, creates the optimal conditions for healing. I provide a place where you can feel safe to explore your most difficult feelings, to resolve grief and loss, heal childhood wounds, improve communication, increase self-esteem and develop more satisfying relationships.

I believe that therapy can be effective in helping those that suffer from addiction. I have worked in in detox, outpatient and residential treatment. It is essential in treating people affected by this malady to understand the nature of the problem involved in treating this condition. Addiction does not exist in a vacuum. Recognizing and treating other problems, trauma, anxiety and depression, and the relationship between those problems and addiction, is necessary for successful treatment. I am extensively trained in trauma therapies, including Accelerated Resolution Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.

In these very challenging and demanding times, people are confronted with feelings of anger, depression, and anxiety. Tension and frustration have become the norm but many lack the proper tools to manage them. Struggling and confused as to what course of action to take, they often revert to old and often destructive habit patterns in a desperate attempt to find relief. Finding it difficult to discover a sense of true or lasting meaning and purpose, they become embroiled in conflicts at home or at work leaving them feeling alone and isolated, disconnected from themselves and the world around them.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

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, 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.
