I believe in wellness from a holistic perspective-emotional, psychological, social, spiritual, and cultural. When life affects these domains, imbalance, and discord exist. I recognize our unique experiences, which influence our values, beliefs, worldview, and perceptions of ourselves and our environment. I believe in autonomy and eliciting innate strengths to navigate the uncertainties of life. The human spirit is resilient. I view therapy through a family systems lens. My foundation is Experiential, and my approach is Integrative, which ties systems theories to the unique needs of each individual and family.

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 find yourself feeling more exhausted than normal? Noticing yourself on the brink of tears and finding the smallest things can push you past your limit? Do you experience pain in your body that has been growing, yet you can’t seem to figure out where it’s coming from? If any of these questions seem to resonate with you, you may be experiencing stress or anxiety that has become too big to carry on your own.

There are many changes in the ebbs and flows of life that can bring us to a place where we realize we’re stuck and don’t know how to move forward. Part of the reason I became a therapist was my own experience needing help to gain perspective and grow when I felt like I couldn’t see where else to go. Now I seek to connect with the clients I serve to help them feel seen and explore new paths together. I specialize in helping you recognize emotional patterns that you may be struggling with and providing inspiration to build new ones.

I've worked with clients addressing stressful life transitions, relationship challenges, domestic or intimate partner abuse, and grief. Clients have approached therapy with different levels of experience, including newcomers, returning after a break, or those mandated by court. Throughout these interactions, compassion, kindness, and self-acceptance have been consistent elements. I collaborate with clients right from the start, providing 15 to 30 minutes of consultation to listen to your concerns, address any questions, and offer referrals if I'm not the best match for your needs.

Mental health is just as crucial to your overall health and well being as is physical health, but often times you may not know how to “exercise” your mind in the same way that you do your body. Sometimes you may keep negative experiences, feelings, or thoughts to yourself because you worry you may burden a close friend or family member with your problems. Or perhaps, you don’t feel comfortable sharing these things with someone close to you. This may impact you in ways that you may not be consciously aware of in your daily life, or even later on in 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.
