Welcome! I use a relational, holistic, and integrative approach to facilitate healing and change. Informed by my education, training, and personal life experiences, I dedicate myself to your best interest and a nonjudgmental space, where you will receive genuine support and gentle guidance. I work with a range of mental health concerns from anxiety and depression, autism and ADHD, to deeper issues with meaning, identity, purpose, and motivation. While I take mental health seriously, I enjoy incorporating humor, lightheartedness, and celebration along the way.

As I see it, the goal of therapy is to help people live more meaningful, integrated, and satisfying lives. Life is endlessly complex and it can be overwhelming to try to understand one's place in the world. Pain and suffering are an ongoing part of life, and unfortunately they often become barriers to engaging with the many wonderful things in life such as love, friendship, fun, work, and play. It is my belief that pain and suffering can offer unique insight into what makes life meaningful to us, and that the discovery of meaning will allow us to live full and satisfying lives.

My greatest reward as a therapist is helping my clients explore ways to make the changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope. I believe that we all need someone to talk to who will listen and accept us as we are, without judgment. I provide my clients with a warm non-judgmental environment which creates a safe place to explore their issues that may be preventing them from living the life that they want.

Each individual experience is a unique one. Whether you are dealing with daily challenges or a challenging season of life, know that you have already taken the hardest step and reached out for help. Most of our mental health symptoms were born with the intention to protect us in some way. Over time, those symptoms have become unmanageable. When our lives feel unmanageable, we lose confidence in our ability to make choices and assert our sense of free will. My goal is to help you understand yourself and find confidence and hope in your ability to move forward and find contentment.

My clients would describe me as “warm, open, non-judgmental, and client focused”. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to hear someone’s story, and meet them on their journey. I spent the past four years in community health specializing in substance use and co-occurring mental health treatment. I am intrigued by trauma and how unresolved trauma affects the body. I am EMDR trained and use this modality to allow the natural healing powers of the brain move toward adaptive resolution of trauma. I also specialize in anxiety, depression, addiction, body awareness, brain spotting, and gender identity.

The unpredictability of emotions we experience when facing uncertainty and change can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed and unsure of how to manage things. At times, feelings related to depression, overwhelming anxiety, loneliness, and overall confusion can just stop us in our tracks. Our identity and roles in career and businesses may change or need improvement. Our relationships can sometimes become strained struggling with communication and connection to the people and groups we must find solutions with to maintain healthy connections. My job is to help in these areas.

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.
