People often face difficulties in their interactions with their spouse/partner, children, parents, and friends. I help individuals to reach their goals of greater hope, joy, contentment, and connection!

Congratulations! You’ve made the first step. You are seeking to make a change. The next steps are the most difficult ones. I am here to walk you through those steps. Sometimes, our past hurts and traumas can affect how we see ourselves, other people, and the world around us. They can affect our thoughts, feelings, and actions. They can cause us to act in ways that hurt the ones we love and go against our values, morals, and principles. You don't have to go through life's challenges alone or carry the burden of having to figure it all out on your own.

You feel stuck. As far as others know you are doing just fine, but inside you are bombarded by feelings of fear, shame, and sadness. Even though you are able to function enough to get by, you're exhausted by the thoughts about not getting it "right". Would it help to have a safe place to share your concerns, ideas and dreams? And when you are ready to move with courageous action, would it help to have someone by your side? What you want is to believe that you matter, that it’s possible to feel grounded and find joy in life. You need to feel safe to be yourself.

Often people seek therapy because they have an idea of what is wrong and what they want to change in their life. Other people don’t know, yet they know that something could be better or is missing. If you haven’t been successful in what you seek, it doesn’t mean that you are weak or that it is not possible, or that there is anything wrong with you. Sometimes we know what the barriers are. Sometimes we don’t. Sometimes it is just a matter of looking in the right place.

You're wondering how life reached this current state. Gathering the energy to face another day seems almost insurmountable. The person you used to be feels distant, and this disconnection is affecting not just your relationship with yourself, but also with the people who matter most—your spouse, children, friends, and family. You might notice yourself retreating in frustration or exhaustion, while also worrying that others are distancing themselves from you. Even your faith, once a reliable source of hope, has felt increasingly remote.

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.
