We will focus on building your confidence and finding your inner shine. Hopefully leading to taking charge of your life and making your own path.

Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. We believe that we all desire to be healthy, healed, and whole, but life can get in the way. At times, events can overwhelm us with happiness and hope or sorrow and hopelessness or just lead us to want to numb our feelings in any way we can find. Life can be beautifully messy and sometimes we just need some help to sort it all out. We can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.

We all want intimacy and intimacy is a risky endeavor. Navigating risk in relationship shakes us to the core and can be made more complicated by the reactions of our loved ones. In therapy we’ll pay attention to the treasure trove of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that occur as we risk growth and connection with others. We’ll pay attention to being good recipients of our loved ones efforts to grow and connect. And we’ll find strategies to remain grounded in slow steady progress towards a fulfilled and powerful self. Counseling will be challenging and raw and fun and I promise to bring my full self to session

My heart and approach. My heart: We were created to know others and be known by others – the desire is just hardwired into us. Why is such an innate desire often so difficult to fulfill? We are all broken and flawed in some ways and that can get in the way of having the secure relationships we long for. I feel honored when people allow me to see their brokenness and flaws, to bear witness to the way they have been hurt and have hurt others. Somehow, when people’s vulnerability is met with acceptance, over time a secure relationship is built.

Life can be hard, painful, confusing, scary, and challenging. Events happen that leave us reeling with brokenness, grief, disbelief, guilt, fear, insecurity, and shame. We don't know what to do or which way to turn or how we got here in the first place. We may hold onto false beliefs about our self-worth, negative thoughts that tear us apart, relationships that are toxic, and behaviors that are destructive. All in an attempt to somehow alleviate how we are feeling. I am here to partner with you in working towards wholeness and healing and to empower you to move forward, happily and confidently.

Navigating life's bumps in the road, whether big or small, can be overwhelming. I enjoy working with adults (18+) who are ready for a change but aren't sure where to start. I have experience working with adults experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety, stress, life transitions, self-esteem, and relationship issues. I also have experience working with adults who want to be the best version of themselves. I have received feedback from previous clients that having a safe space to share their inner most thoughts and feelings and to feel heard yet challenged on irrational thoughts, were key in their journey to wellbeing.

Connection is why we are here. Too often we focus on what we don't have, what we don't want, and how we don't measure up. This leaves us feeling depressed, disconnected, and isolated.

Not a single one of our lives has escaped pain, hurt, rejection, loss, or other traumatic events. It’s a part of the world we live in; a part we cannot evade. Each generation, the trauma becomes more complex, as it builds on the previous generation’s unresolved trauma. It presents itself as depression, anxiety, fatigue, sleeplessness, trouble concentrating, self-destructive behaviors (including addiction), physical illness, overwhelming guilt or shame, and the inability to form healthy relationships. But it doesn’t have to continue. You can loosen the hold that it has on your life. You can end the cycle of generational trauma.

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.
