Our emotions have a tremendous impact on our health and sense of well-being. Some people go through life feeling lost or stuck, struggling in their relationships and careers, not understanding what is happening or why they feel the way they do. Whether clients are feeling distressed, overwhelmed or discouraged from a current situation or a chronic problem that never seems to get resolved, I help them find the courage and confidence to overcome challenges and reach for their goals.

It's the end of another long "day in paradise" at your job. You're burned out, and when you get home, so is your spouse. You get in to a fight, and afterwards you feel angry, like there's something wrong with you, and that you're completely alone. I know what it's like to struggle in life, and feel alone. You sense that something in you is broken, that no one can help, that no one cares. I get it, I want to help, and I will help. I work with adults who are exhausted from doing it on their own, desperate to get unstuck and want to achieve the best version of themselves, but have no clue about how to do it.

I believe that while therapeutic work often covers some of the most difficult issues the human experience has to offer, it is crucial to provide an atmosphere that is experienced as positive towards healing. Often times, growth and healing seem overwhelming, but there is beauty to be found in it. I am always drawn to the line in a poem by Rumi that states, "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there." It is a summation of what therapy should be. Healing and growth are best found in places beyond judgement. It is truly an honor when you have the opportunity to meet someone in this space.

Is your teen or young adult struggling with the challenges of everyday life? Has academic pressure, stress, relationship challenges, or trauma led to anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, low-self esteem/self-confidence, or negative patterns of behavior? As a parent, do you feel frustrated and defeated because you can’t find answers? You feel like you have tried everything, yet nothing seems to be working. All you desire is for your child to feel better and to be successful. We cannot control the things that happen to us, but we can control how we respond. Expressing feelings and emotions is the first step in taking control.

You hurt when your child hurts. As their parent, you just want to ease their pain. Being unable to do this can be heart-breaking but also frustrating and exhausting. Communication can require so much energy. Sometimes those efforts even cause conflict between you and your child. These times are confusing and difficult for everyone in the home. Children, teens, and adults face a variety of challenges. Peer interactions, school/life transitions, developmental changes, increased stressors, navigating emotions, and responsibilities are all a part of the growing up process, but can place significant tension on the family unit.

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.
