Whether you are feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, being triggered by past trauma, or battling with chronic pain or illness, we can work together to untangle the things that hold you back, so you can create the life you want and deserve.

Are you serious about EMDR Therapy? Work only with a Certified EMDR Therapist then. I have advanced training and teach other therapists in this approach as well as somatics, attachment, and brainspotting. Do you feel like your past is invading your present? Maybe your body feels like it's in a constant state of stress. Have you experienced recent trauma like a divorce or health scare and feel lost? Or, do you have a longer history of repeated exposure to abuse or traumatic experiences called complex PTSD? Lasting and quicker change can result from brain plus body-based approaches rather than old fashioned talk therapy.

First and foremost, I commend you for taking the most difficult step in therapy- seeing its value and starting the process. The process can be uncomfortable, and I am here to help you make the process as easy as possible. Right from the beginning, it is going to be important to establish a good relationship in which you feel comfortable opening up and allowing me to get to know you. I do this mainly by asking questions, listening, and putting much care into understanding who you are and what you are saying.

There are times in our lives when we feel lost, stuck, and unhappy. Sometimes we’re not sure how or why we feel this way. There are other times when we can pinpoint exactly what's making us feel anxious, pressured, depressed, stressed, angry, or confused, but we don't know what to do about it all, how to fix it, or how to manage our painful feelings. Whether you know what is causing your distress or not, it's impacting your life. If you are uncertain about how to accept, change, move forward, and feel better, I encourage you to seek counseling.

When life becomes too difficult, we often feel like there is something fundamentally wrong within us. We feel invisible, left out, and misunderstood. As women, we are constantly trying to do more while being told by the world around us that we are not good enough. You need to be the perfect student, the caring daughter, and the supportive friend. You need to be the patient mother, loving partner, and an uncompromising independent career woman. You have to do it all- and you carry an unyielding emotional burden because of it.

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.
