Currently have daytime 9am-3pm openings. Life is full of expected and unexpected challenges that present a roller coaster of emotions. On the one hand there is a desire to openly share all of these thoughts and emotions connected to life's challenges and on the other hand a desire for privacy. Emotions can boil under the surface or they can be obvious at the top; and, we owe it to ourselves to set aside time to share and talk about these emotions to decrease the amount of energy they consume. Life is a treasure and with support, encouragement, empathy and compassion you can have the power to feel this sentiment every day!

I believe that the most rewarding things in life are the relationships that we build with others. As a systemic therapist, I believe that nothing exists in isolation. Healing, therefore, occurs when changes are made at the individual and systemic levels. I believe that there is a reason for every struggle and that our struggles give us purpose. I strive to tailor treatment to meet your needs and so treatment will look a little different for everyone.

Are you feeling stuck? Most people come to therapy because something is not working in their life now. Rarely do we consider that it probably has more to do with our past than our present. It is in discovering the negative mind sets that have become our core beliefs that we are able to gain the insight and wisdom to change what is keeping us stuck. We end up living our life out of the negative beliefs that we have taken as our own and written upon our soul. We take them with us into our relationships; we make life decisions based on them. In essence, those negative mindsets/beliefs become our way of being.

Could your trauma experiences be leaving you with feeling the pressure to be perfect all the time, making sure everyone around you is happy and "good", and you’re physically exhausted from it? Unhealed trauma can result in you second guessing yourself and your decisions, struggling to identify your emotions, finding it hard to rely on others, and feeling like you’re just not good enough. Does this resonate with you? I work with driven, people-pleasing women trauma survivors eager for lasting change who are struggling with the lingering effects of trauma, subsequent relationship anxiety, and painful overwhelm in their body.

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.
