As you begin your search for a therapist, you may have thought something like, “How am I supposed to find the best therapist for me?” Perhaps you were told to look for a certain certification, a set of initials, or a particular theory on a website or bio. But perhaps you are still afraid of making the “wrong choice.” Here’s the piece of advice I give young people and their parents who are in situations just like yours– “Find someone you like.” Studies have shown that the biggest indicator of success is the connection made between the counselor and client rather than the theory or certification.

Do you feel lost, disconnected, or out of touch from yourself or the energy you once had? It’s been a rough year that has impacted people’s relationships, careers, and motivation. Are you feeling empowered or anxious as we move towards “normal” life?

Do you feel that the path you are on is not leading you to where you want to go? Do you feel misunderstood in your relationship? Is it difficult to explain why you feel the way you do? Do you struggle with the loss of a loved one due to immigration difficulties? Do you feel your children don't understand their roots? Living in a new and different culture and community can be very difficult for families, especially children living in both worlds. I would be honored to join you on your journey to understanding and definition.

Life is made up of shaping experiences. Some of those events shape us for the better and other incidents leave scars that are hard to walk away from. As you consider whether counseling is for you, my hope would be that you know that you matter and deserve to be cared for. You do not have to face those experiences alone. For whichever reason has you on this page reading therapy bios, I hope you will see myself and this team at Rally Point Counseling as advocates that will partner with you in pursuing changes that will help you successfully get to your desired outcomes.

Coming to therapy can be an intimidating process. I do my best to make my clients feel comfortable whether we are meeting online or in person. The last thing people want is an uptight, professional that makes them feel like they need to censor themselves. I am conversational, warm, and look forward to developing a therapeutic relationship with adolescent and adult clientele. I pride myself on being non-judgmental and create a safe space where clients can be vulnerable to share anything they may need to - expletives and all.

Our world has changed radically in a very short time. The pandemic has created new problems and magnified existing ones. Our interactions with others, even within our families, have changed out of necessity. We live with uncertainty, fear, and anxiety. The "normal" that we knew before, has changed. Stress has taken on bigger proportions. Our mental health, our sense of security may be severely taxed. For this reason, I provide telehealth sessions through Zoom No need to come to an office for counseling when we can still "meet" face-to-face. Call to set up an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you!

Therapy can be a big step for someone who is experiencing intense feelings of stress and life's challenges. My focus is to help you feel comfortable and heard so that you can focus on achieving your goals. I believe that therapy can help anyone through the process of developing improved habits and skills. Learning how to use these can improve our ability to be independent and more adaptable to life's changes. I understand life transitions and problem solving can be difficult when a lot is thrown at us at once. My goal is to help you be able to tackle those events piece by piece in a more manageable way.

Therapy is about gathering and understanding the pieces of your story. The themes of our story, the characters we've encountered, the obstacles we've faced, and the meaning we've made from our experiences, these are all complex things. It's my job (and joy!) to sort through these pieces and provide a new lens in order to challenge you, push you, and help you grow into the most healthy, authentic version of you. I love helping people understand themselves better and find courage to connect more with those around them.

Life is complicated and it often leaves us feeling out of control. This feeling of being powerless can lead to suffering, and forces us to make changes in order to go on. That's what I do; I help people with making changes, whether they are trying to change their thoughts, feelings or behavior. I utilize an integrative approach to therapy focused on the personal needs and strengths of my clients. The work is rooted in building a strong relationship based on trust, understanding, and respect, that challenges individuals to learn about themselves, and to use that knowledge to implement meaningful changes in their lives.

All people have THAT moment. The big one, where we question if we are with the right person. We find ourselves loving someone, but falling into a pattern that we can't find our way out of. Communication, betrayals, falling out of sync, the fights that lead nowhere, someone shutting down, lack of emotional or physical intimacy, or not seeing eye to eye on important issues are all reasons people can benefit from an intensive look into their relationship. You want your person to be "your" person again. To love openly with affection, but also with the ability to resolve conflicts is what I wish for each couple I work with.

Congratulations. You might not know it but you have taken the first big step in your mental health journey. By researching Mental Health Professionals you have made a conscious decision to heal your mind and have acknowledged that you are worth that healing. You may be asking yourself, “How do I know what therapist is best for me? Where do I even start in finding the right fit?” The answers to those questions are simple. Find a Counselor that is like minded. Pick someone that you feel will connect with you. I advise prospective clients that success in the therapy room comes when people connect-not through degrees and certifications.

I have had the opportunity to work with individuals of all ages for over 51 years. I approach everyone I see with a lifetime of experience about countless others but see the uniqueness of each individual. I meet people on the road where they are and assist them in taking life changing steps toward where they want to be. I see myself as a "midwife", helping each person give birth to a better life. Ultimately I see "my job is to put myself out of a job...but I need your help."

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

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.

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.

What type of therapist is right for me?

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.

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 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.

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.
