Most of us have learned that “there are no free passes in life.” We are all vulnerable to life’s curveballs. But sometimes we get tired of fielding them by ourselves. That’s where I come in…. Perhaps you, or a loved one, is struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, loss, trauma, or abuse, among other concerns. It does not matter how overwhelming the problem is, healing and growth are always possible. We will work collaboratively by combining your knowledge of the situations you confront, with my professional experience in the healing process of counseling. You’ll see - the possibilities are remarkable.

It is common to face an issue that prevents one from living his or her best life. My goal is to help you identify and change early programming and to remove cognitive and emotional blocks. Such blocks cause one to be stagnant and prevent one from elevating to the next level. In addition to working with high net worth executives and entertainers, I enjoy serving clients struggling with anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, trauma, depression, and chronic medical conditions. I also provide coaching in separation and divorce.

Are you struggling to do what matters to you? Are you triggered by old wounds or perhaps experiencing symptoms that you have never had before? You may feel like your Brain is controlling you with negative messages about yourself and others. It would therefore be helpful to have someone to talk to AND teach you skills that will help you manage these difficult times. Are you a young adult having to live home due to economic and other concerns? You may feel invalidated by your loved ones and need support in order to move forward in your life. Is chronic illness exacerbating your symptoms?

OCD is a heavy burden. And it feels even heavier when nothing seems to help, including therapy. Maybe you feel that OCD is just something you have to tolerate for the rest of your life. I don’t believe that “coping” is your only option. I believe OCD is treatable. And I believe you can make deep-seated and long-lasting change. Together, we’ll look beyond your diagnosis and subtype, and understand the beliefs that maintain the OCD in your life. This can be daunting, but I’ll be there with you every step of the way offering guidance and support.

All of us, over the course of our lives, have found ourselves faced with challenging life events - some small and others so much bigger than ourselves that we become overwhelmed and unable to face them alone. We may experience feelings of grief, loss, depression, anxiety, trauma, family conflicts, marital strife, illness, or addiction to mention a few. However, what is most important is that we not face these alone, and remember there is help and relief. Each one of us has a sense of resiliency to meet our life challenges - even in our worst times. Finding that resiliency is the beginning to healing and living our best lives.

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.
