I get it, finding the right therapist can be hard! Maybe you've tried a handful or two over the past few years. I know change can be scary, stress is overwhelming, transitions through life can be difficult, and some people are just jerks! I provide a warm, inviting, comfortable space where you're able to relax, say exactly what you're feeling, and believe you have someone who's actually "listening" to you. Though I can't guarantee everything will end up perfectly, I can guarantee you will feel heard, understood, and be provided skills and tools to manage life and the specific circumstances you're facing.

Many of us seek to enhance our quality of life and well-being. However, life has a way of throwing us pitfalls at times. There are moments when a trained professional is beneficial to help address issues, needs, and goals for the future. You may be struggling with family issues and could use some direction on coping with family dynamics due to stressors, mental health issues, substance abuse, or an adolescent who is oppositional. Your goal may be to learn effective coping strategies, repair a broken relationship, pull yourself out of depression, or to simply work on being happy.

Effective psychotherapy includes building rapport, trust, and achieving awareness through a collaborative process where patient and therapist work together to achieve stated goals. It includes evidence-based methods, learning about the issue or disorder, applying solutions and developing skills and strategies to manage emotions and realize your incredible strength and ability to persevere in the face of adversity and find acceptance in loss/grief and life's uncertainties. Initially, therapy can be challenging, but it does become easier over time. To reduce your anxiety, I created a safe, professional, nonjudgmental environment.

You realize that you have given everything to your relationships, but you struggle to lean into them because you don’t feel supported. You know that you want to do things differently and be different, but you are unsure of what that even looks like.

Hey there! Are you identifying as someone with trauma and anxiety (medical, complex, neglect, attachment, deployment, rape, accidents, caregivers, etc.)? I'm a trauma-informed/trauma-trained therapist who understands not all memories are stored in your brain. Physical aches/pains, that desire to duck out on social events, and your short temper all come from trying to keep yourself safe. Others call you “controlling” or “manipulative”. They don’t understand that order and predictability equals safety to a trauma survivor. But I do. “They” see the behavior as being the problem. I see the unmet need that is causing the behavior.

Hello, my name is Dale. My journey to counseling came about a little differently than some. My background was in the medical field as a radiologic technologist where I had the privilege of working with hurting people every day. Then through a difficult journey of my own, I saw hurting people in a way that I had never seen. They were hurting from the inside, the hidden place holding wounds and experiences from loss, grief, and pain. I am a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor with a degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

These days there is so much more to lose. People are expecting so much, and it's hard keeping it together. One minute I can handle it, and then something happens? It's not intended to go that far, Blink once, blink twice – and there it is. Blink once, blink twice – damn! The vicious cycle is exhausting. getting sick of hiding it from family. If anyone found out, It is a lonely, empty place to be in. Could anyone understand the prison that feeling has become?

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.
