I strive to provide a place of help, hope and healing. I enjoy working with clients who are struggling with all life's challenges - whether it is having (or wanting to have) a baby, emerging as an adult, relationship crisis, or the completely unexpected. These adjustments, the hope, the loss, the exhaustion is not easy. Expectations can often be far different from reality leading to anxiety, depression and other mental health issues.

As a therapist, I'm eager to walk alongside highly motivated individuals and couples in their journey towards success. For some, success means gaining an improved sense of self-esteem and value. Others may be looking to successfully navigate a challenging season of life. Over the last 22 years, it has been a joy to supportively listen to men, women and adolescents, offer meaningful insight, and enjoy the satisfaction of my clients meeting their goals for therapy. It would be my joy to help you in this way as well.

I have a heart for people who are overwhelmed with life's experiences and struggling to cope and move forward to a healthier place. I feel people need to know there is someone in their corner, willing to listen, and help them find a place of feeling stronger, more in control and capable of managing life's difficulties. In my experience I have found that, in most situations, by the time someone reaches out to a counselor, they have already tried to self-heal and are in a place where they can only see one thing: the problem. I find great value in helping people learn ways to cope, regain their perspective, and feel worthy again.

My greatest reward as a therapist has been helping individuals gain self-awareness and self-confidence to make changes and overcome life's challenges. I believe we can all benefit from having someone to talk to, who listens, without judgment. Taking the initial step to engage in therapy can be difficult. I attempt to provide a laid back and safe environment for clients to begin addressing issues preventing them from living the life they deserve. I pride myself on establishing rapport with my clients, at the onset of sessions, with a strong, collaborative, and therapeutic relationship, based on honesty and trust, to reach identified goals.

Why bother telling anyone, they won't believe you or won't care. People would think it was your fault, after all, you did not say "no". There is no way that your physical health issues could be related to what happened to you, after all, it was so long ago and you don't even think about it anymore. It becomes easier to wear a mask then reveal the pain of what you cannot speak about. Being strong all the time becomes harder as the days, weeks, and months go by.

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.
