Hello, beautiful soul. I know you may not be feeling so great right now. Life has a way of showing up in a very real way at the most unexpected times, knocking the wind right out of us. In the ever-changing cycles and transitions of life, sometimes, we say goodbye to people we never thought we would, we separate from familiar places and things whether we’re ready or not, and we face the unknown with lingering uncertainty, not quite sure where to go, what to do, or to whom we can turn. Surviving comes at a cost to our overall health. Let's address the root causes in your virtual wellness sessions from the comfort of your own space.

My ideal client realizes that they are the change that needs to happen in their life. We will work together to develop goals that will create the change that they wish to make. If a client already has goals- awesome! If a client does not have goals, but just sits in a general sense of unease that "something is wrong and I am ready to change," that works too. I am also comfortable and familiar with working with the unique needs of first responders.

Do you sometimes become frustrated and angry because your feelings are constantly not being validated? You have attempted to address the issue but with very little success. When our feelings are constantly ignored, resentment sets in which eventually progresses to emotional issues including early signs of depression and/or anxiety. Throughout my years in practice I have helped many individuals successfully get the acknowledgement and acceptance from others, simply by recognizing and assessing their own emotional reactions.

I became a social worker for two reasons; I have a natural propensity to talk with people therapeutically and I enjoy helping people. Traditionally, social workers help people to get where they want to go in their lives and assist them in becoming more resourceful in dealing with stresses in their life. I provide supportive counseling, which assists in the process of clients leaning how to support themselves and offer them the tools they need to become more proficient at navigating the environment we live in.

Your story matters, and I'm here to listen. I help clients who, like me, have faced their fair share of struggles and setbacks. They may be battling anxiety, depression, or the weight of past traumas, but beneath it all, they possess a resilience. They crave a safe space to explore their emotions, validate their experiences, and uncover the tools needed to navigate life's complexities with grace. Their goal is not just to survive, but to thrive—to rediscover joy, reclaim their sense of self-worth, and forge genuine connections rooted in vulnerability & authenticity, breaking generational cycles of hardship and foster strength.

Let's be real. It's a very challenging time to be alive. I operate from a philosphy that emphasizes the power of our environment in determining how we feel and, in turn, how well we are able to function. If you feel overwhelmed, cynical, anxious, or just plain fed up, then it's probably a good time to check in with someone who can offer an objective take on things. Together, we can address things like racing thoughts, depression, anxiety, or just the sense that "something just isn't right."

Life brings many challenges and hardships. You may be burdened by insecurities, fears, anger, or resentment. Relationships or work may be unsatisfying. Most likely you have tried to feel better on your own; some things may have helped, but not always fully or lasting. The source of some problems can be identified, while other problems are vague and unclear. In the end, you come with your own set of difficulties and life circumstances. I believe psychotherapy enhances our natural tendency to understand ourselves as we strive to realize our hopes and aspirations.

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.
