Not accepting new clients
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!

Whether you are a tired parent, an anxious teen, or a college student feeling lost in the world...mental health affects us all. Often times, life starts to feel like it is swirling around us instead of us making conscious and fulfilling decisions each day. Your internal compass brought you here; it's gently nudging you to admit that things feel "off" or harder than they should at times. Creating safety and space to express your thoughts, feelings and wants without judgement is something sacred that we all can benefit from.

I love working with people during the "family building" stage of life: pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting young kids. Many new parents feel: sadness, hopelessness, worry, irritability, panic and/or sleep disruptions. In therapy, clients tell me they feel overwhelmed, stressed out, and in "survival mode." They need more support from their family, and they are afraid of what's to come. Some are going through the most painful time in their lives. Above all else, these parents need someone to listen to them, to SEE them, and to support them in all their complexity. People don't want to be judged, they want to be understood.

I am passionate about working with adults who are suffering from anxiety disorders (OCD, social anxiety and panic) and Insomnia. Anxiety can be so interfering in people's lives whether it be work, relationships or leisure activities. There are effective treatment options which help people live the lives they want to be living without engaging in compulsions, experiencing panic, or feeling stuck worrying. Similarly, when we can't sleep, we do not feel or function our best. Learning strategies to get a good nights sleep can be incredibly impactful. Together, we can work towards reducing anxiety and feeling more rested.

I am honored to walk with you. I believe that we can all move towards healthier lives, if that is what we truly desire. The difficulties we face are not who we are and can be used as opportunities to reclaim more pieces of ourselves. By removing barriers, we can see clearer and make decisions that will allow us to live more authentically. My goal is to provide a warm, safe environment to explore difficult issues. This will make the healing process easier and can create a space to find solutions that previously seemed impossible.

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.
