Whether it was your decision or your spouse’s, experiencing divorce leads to confusion, anger, resentment, and anxiety. You’re feeling grief over the pending loss of the marriage and at times wonder if the entire marriage had been a waste. Was it all for nothing? You once loved and trusted each other. Now, the legal proceedings can suddenly make your spouse seem like an adversary. Complications abound including lawyers, court dates and disputes over child visitation. After the divorce is over, your life is nothing like what you had planned...it seems as if your mind is hampered by a heavy fog. How can you sort things out?

Psychological hinderances such as the inner critic, negative self talk, painful past experiences, or bodily sensations such as heaviness or body tension can all hinder us from the life we want. We all want something in life and there will be a obstacle on that journey. I can help you on your journey.

My counseling approach is client-centered and goal-oriented. By definition, this allows individuals to experience "growth and fulfillment" by actively participating in his or her own therapy in order to create change. Often, we lose hope at thinking that things could ever be different. We try and struggle and sometimes fail. But, you have an opportunity to think differently, relate differently, and transition from negativity to positive behaviors which will result in a powerful sense of self and promote strong interpersonal relationships.

Couples! How did things get this bad? There was a time when you both could talk about anything. You connected so profoundly that the thought of having trouble communicating was laughable. But things have changed, and you're at an impasse. Now, every attempt at communication about what matters most leads to useless fighting or icy silences. When you’re together, you still feel desperately alone. You don’t recognize the person your partner has become. Even worse, you don’t like who this relationship has made you become. You aren’t ready to give up, but you know that things can't continue like this. You’re ready for help.

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.
