I believe that one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. You might find that you become anxious in relationships, making them difficult to navigate. Even a minor stressor can lead to overwhelming emotional reactivity (sadness, fear, anger) that leaves you feeling like there is something terribly wrong with you. Because you experience difficulty connecting with yourself and others at times, you feel empty and unfulfilled in life. It’s hard to think flexibly in complex situations because of the intensity of your emotional experience. I'm here to tell you that you do not have to feel this way forever.

You are that women who everyone looks to because you "have it all together". You talk the talk, do all the things that are expected of you but you still find your self with that stinking thinking. You show up but the shit is surfacing even with the mask on. That little voice inside keeps telling you "I'm not good enough" "I don't deserve it", "I am not worthy". The messages you received growing up and even now from family, society and institutions are still there making you play small in your life, love and work. You are meant to be a force to be reckoned with Sis! The time has come to truly show up for yourself!

Tell me if any of this sounds like you: you're relentlessly hard on yourself. You might feel uncomfy in your own skin and struggle with body image or disordered eating. Maybe you're burnt out on dating/relationships and wonder if you'll ever find what you're looking for. On the surface, it might seem like you have it all together, but in reality, you overthink, have a hard time speaking your mind, and run through "what ifs" endlessly. You're goal-oriented and hard-working, but regardless of your achievements, nothing feels like it translates to truly feeling good enough. If this resonates with you, you're in the right place!

It is a process that you control in my solution-focused problem solving therapy practice method. For 30 plus years, I have provided new insights and skills to help clients create the life they want.

My goal for private practice is to support others to find peace and wholeness within their lives and relationships. Throughout my time working as a therapist, I have assisted clients with transforming their lives from desperation and overwhelming anxiety to a life filled with hope and serenity. I have watched families who were broken by addiction who grew to live a chaotic-free life with the tools to navigate their communication and let go of codependent behaviors. I have had the pleasure of coaching couples on the verge of divorce to grow together and build a stronger relationship.

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.
