It has been my privilege to help people of all ages and backgrounds live their preferred story - to feel, think, and experience life the way they want. You’ve already started seeking it out. I truly believe it is the well part of someone that seeks and shows up to therapy, that knows and wants something better. Whether you are a young person, a parent, or simply a fellow human being, you can grow, learn, change & heal. It is all possible. And I see therapy not just as a way to decrease what you aren’t wanting but also a chance to increase what you’d like to experience in yourself, your life, & your family.

For many people, the daily experience of anxiety and depression can feel like "just the way things are." Sometimes, we've lived for so long with it, we don't remember what it's like to live without it. The stress caused by depression and anxiety can affect nearly every part of our lives, including our physical health, our relationships, our careers. Traumatic events or recurring "micro traumas" like bullying or emotional abuse can feel overwhelming. Things can feel even worse if we've been to doctors and therapists before, and nothing seems to have worked.

Are you suffering from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and/or an eating disorder? Are these issues affecting your relationships? Within the therapeutic relationship, I want to be able to provide a level of comfort that will allow you to be able to explore unwanted thoughts. These thoughts may be affecting your emotional state, and ultimately intruding on your day to day performances. Because these feelings can be difficult to understand and even express to others, many individuals from all ages can feel alone in the process.

They say time heals all wounds; this simply is not true. Unresolved trauma isn't left in the past where or when you might have experienced it. It sticks with us everywhere we go in the form of sadness, anxiety or possibly anger. Just as if we were physically injured in a car accident or maybe a slip and fall we would see a physician so that our bodies may heal properly. The same approach is needed when dealing with emotional pain (trauma). You need a therapist to work alongside you so the trauma may begin to heal. That is where I come in…..

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.
