Located in Peosta behind Jumble Coffee. Life and relationships can be challenging. Sometimes it takes new ideas and perspectives to feel empowered to change. In addition to adverse life events, falsely believing we are not good enough, feeling out of control and the fear rejection are common causes of anxiety. We get caught up in reaction of negative thoughts, feeling overwhelmed in addition to uncomfortable body sensations which cause us to overreact (anger) or underreact (avoidance). Whether individually or as a couple, taking that first step to healing is a step you don't have to take on your own.

I promise you there is something worse out there than being sad and that is being alone and being sad. Ain't nobody in this room alone. -Ted Lasso. We are born with all the emotions, but no idea how to manage those emotions. We learn ways to deal with them through life experiences; some helpful ways, some hurtful ways. With every new life experience comes bigger, more complex emotions; pretty soon we feel anxious, overwhelmed, or out of control. Then what the heck do we do? Through our therapeutic relationship, we can work to explore and integrate emotions, and help you to live the life you want to live.

Do you find yourself staring at the mirror comparing yourself to others, questioning the decisions you’re making, and experiencing fearful thinking about how to make change or the idea of change itself? Your world is full of chaos that whirls more out of control each day and the more you try to hold on the more difficult it seems to keep your grip. Like your body isn’t able to support you or keep up with you- creating fear, anxiety, and other feelings you can’t even begin to describe. Like the mirror in front of you is cracking in a million directions and you don’t know how to fix the image of the person standing in front of you.

As the mama of young kiddos, who is also coping with life’s transitions, I’ve made it my mission to help mamas thrive throughout their pregnancy and postpartum journey, ensuring a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle for years to come. During my first maternity leave, I thought to myself, if I can help mamas manage their mental health and wellbeing (so they don't have to feel like I do right now), I can prevent kiddos from ever needing to come to see me. So, with that epiphany, I became fully trained to work with Perinatal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International & have since added Brainspotting to best treat Mama Trauma.

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.
