Life gives curve balls, cliff hangers, and tragedies. At times one needs a judgment-free witness to dust off and make sense of what has happened, then to find the courage within to rebuild with new insight. Some need to quickly process traumatic experiences from military service or first responder work. Trauma comes in many forms including from childhood, accidents, betrayal, relationships and loss. Perhaps the whole world changed upon discovery of infidelity, when faced with divorce or death, or having seen the unspeakable. I am honored to walk along side as you process your experiences, accept what is, and live your own values.

Since 2007, I have helped families who experience intense conflict around parenting, religious differences, relationship commitment, and sexual intimacy concerns. My clients ages range from 18 months old to 70+ years old. Whether you are an individual, couple, or family I always work from a systemic lens. This means I am always considering the context from which your struggles arise. Be prepared to include the entire context in the therapeutic process. For instance, for defiant children, I'm working with all active parents, and the school. And for couples, I'm ensuring both partners are heard and understood in therapy.

It is my honor to work with those who desire to show up confidently as the unique individuals they are and to work with couples and families desirous of creating authentic relationships with honest communication. In today's world, we often feel pressured to present a perfect image of ourselves to our community, work colleagues, family members, and even our spouses. The effort this takes can cause a great deal of exhaustion and anxiety. Even if there is a desire to show our more true, vulnerable self to others, there comes with it a fear that we may be seen as "not enough" and ultimately be rejected.

Since that time I have had a wealth of experiences that have confirmed that being a counselor is simply what I am meant to do. Winston Churchill once said, "If you're going through hell, keep going."

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.
