With all my clients, I start by trying to create a completely safe, private, confidential, accepting, non-judgmental, valuing, understanding, and empowering relationship. I believe that these components alone can often be enough to bring the changes you seek to make in your life. Whatever you are struggling with, I strive to meet you where you are, understand your experience, and help you achieve your goals for change. My clients are frequently experiencing depression, anxiety, or relationship difficulties, and it is my goal to work with them to uncover and heal the underlying driving factors of those symptoms.

Life can be as hard as it is beautiful. We are all chasing the beauty and trying to figure out what to do with the hard stuff. Whether it be relationships, job, family, major shifts, or the personal hurts that we know we should talk about but always seem to keep to ourselves, the hard stuff is part of each of our lives. I am passionate about helping people learn how to move into the hard stuff well so that they can come out the other side stronger and more peaceful.

These problems typically affect the way they are moving through the world, their relationships, their life satisfaction, and their understanding of themselves. My clients are typically searching for answers and understanding. They want to be able to live their lives instead of being trapped by trying to survive.

I once heard that finding a good therapist is like discovering your favorite flavor of ice cream. Counseling is not one size fits all. I focus primarily on the creation of a warm atmosphere to dissolve barriers to a joyful authentic life. In order to see results of therapy, I believe there must be a strong therapeutic relationship. I am a non judgmental advocate for my clients. I believe that having an anchor of strength and support is an aspect of therapy that is life changing. Therapy can be a catalyst to create peace, change, joy, and self awareness. I would love to take this journey with you.

As a therapist, I am dedicated to helping my clients obtain a healthier mindset and overall lifestyle. I believe beginning therapy, whether it be for you or your child, is a brave and sometimes challenging choice. I also understand therapy can be a daunting experience. I aim to make this process as comfortable as possible. Therapy should be a safe place where individuals can identify and express difficult emotions. I believe treatment should be individualized to each client, but I commonly utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and I enjoy incorporating art and other expressive therapies.

FAQs - About Therapy and Counseling

How can I find a therapist in Gainesville?

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.
