Sorting through our own thoughts and feelings can be a struggle at times. We get bogged down with work, personal life, commitments and events, and we realize that our little ones are struggling too. It's hard enough to work through our own selves, and often even more so when trying to help our little ones work through theirs, with their limited vocab and life experience to categorize and verbalize their thoughts and feelings.

I am a bilingual master's-level counselor working toward licensure and I am currently taking on new clients. I love working with individuals, couples, and teens. One of my favorite things about the process of therapy is getting to know you, your past experiences, and your goals in hopes that you might get to know more about yourself and the attachments we have created with those around us. I offer a warm and safe environment where we can address sensitive topics at a comfortable pace. I believe the client is the expert of their own life and we will work collaboratively to address your goals toward change.

We all have our moments. Whether we are feeling down, stuck, or lost, the human condition calls for a little help sometimes. I aim to provide help in a non-judgmental manner while also providing the accountability and collaborative feedback that helps you make meaningful change. While certain patterns and neurological consistencies between individuals are important and necessary to account for, I believe true and lasting change occurs through understanding the things that make us unique. True change occurs because of potential you already possess and my job is to help unlock the insights and potential that exist inside you.

I recognize that navigating stressors in our current times is more challenging than ever before. Increasing professional, work, family, and other external pressures make it more and more difficult to navigate daily routines and responsibilities. Recognizing past stressors and issues and how they are impacting/limiting us can be an important aspect of therapy that I strive to help people with. Learning tools and skills to help navigate stressors is also essential in therapy to help people feel their happiest and healthiest. Feeling less stressed and less overwhelmed; feeling better about oneself; and feeling happier and less anxious!

My goal in therapy is to offer support as you navigate through some of life’s challenges. I am a systems-thinker and approach therapy with the view that a person is more than just who they are today. I treat every person and their situation unique to any other, knowing that their personal life experiences, values, spiritual beliefs, race, sexual orientation, and other factors helped shape the person they are today and how that person views and interacts with the world.

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.
