I specialize in helping couples communicate effectively and individuals with anxiety find ways to manage their symptoms and improve their overall well-being. Communication is the foundation of any healthy relationship, and my goal is to empower couples with the tools they need to effectively express their feelings and needs to one another. In addition to my work with couples, I also have a particular interest in helping individuals who struggle with anxiety. I understand that anxiety can be overwhelming and debilitating, and I work with my clients to develop personalized strategies that can help them manage their symptoms.

Do you want to take your athletic performance to a higher level? Then, get mentally prepared before taking on your next big game! Mental Training is NOT just another form of therapy for athletes, and if you underperform in your sport, it is not a sign of a mental disorder. When we face a challenge in sports, there is a cascade of mental and physiological reactions that can help or hurt our athletic performance. Mental Training is about identifying how you respond when the pressure is ON and training the new responses.

Therapy can feel scary. It’s difficult not knowing what to expect and to share personal parts of your life with someone you don’t know. I recognize taking the steps to research and contact a potential therapist is perhaps not an easy one, though I believe it signifies your hope and willingness to work on and address your problems. I work mostly with adult females and focus on anxiety, grief/loss, relationship issues, stress management, life adjustments, and workplace challenges.

Finding the right therapist can be overwhelming. I understand it takes courage to be vulnerable, so I’ll meet you with compassion and a non-judgmental space for healing. A safe space for exploring your thoughts and feelings while being heard and understood. Our lived experiences can often burden us with feelings of hopelessness, worry, fear, shame, and guilt, or sometimes have us questioning our self-worth or purpose in life. You have worth and your needs matter and are deserving of individualized attention. Together, I will support you in processing what has you feeling stuck or in pain and interfering with your daily life.

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.
