Feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, or at your breaking point? With all of the challenges life throws at us, it can be easy to feel like this. It can seem like there is not enough time in the day to get everything done. Sometimes we freeze, shut down, and retreat to our shell. Sometimes we lash out in anger. And sometimes we run away from our responsibilities by distracting ourselves in a variety of ways. These may be natural responses. Yet, we will benefit learning ways to strengthen ourselves to overcome these unproductive responses and break what seems like a never ending cycle.

The world can be a frightening place, often causing us to have self-doubt and lose our way. I have been in the human services field for over 28 years because it is my belief that everyone can find their way again and sometimes it requires a little help from someone who genuinely cares. I chose this profession because helping others live their best life is what I am most passionate about. I provide a safe, compassionate, relaxed, and non-judgmental space for you to find your way and rediscover hope and purpose in your life.

Trauma can be difficult and complex. The path to healing can be as well. Clients who have experienced trauma, but who have a strong desire to overcome their obstacles and strive for a healthy, balanced way of life, relieved of the mounting weight of the experience, are the clients that instill enthusiasm and drive in me. Their needs may range from help processing underlying emotions, dismantling unhelpful thought patterns, or creating goals that align with their strengths. These values and motives make up my ideal client. They want freedom from a negative experience because they know the potential joy of being their fullest self.

The human experience is interesting to say the least - the suffering, joy, compassion, anger that we experience. Although all of us have our individual journeys and unique experiences, we're able to find connection with one another. As a therapist being able to connect with my clients and helping them navigate through the struggles in their journey, as well as celebrate their accomplishments, is something I consider to be special.

I’ve been in clinical practice for over seven years, and have worked as a social worker since 2010. I work with all ages because I believe we all need a little support from time to time, no matter our phase of life. I strive to create a collaborative, safe space to explore openly and engage genuinely. Individuals may seek therapy with me for many reasons, and no reason is “more valid” than any other. Some of these might be: self-esteem, anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, major life changes, parenting, fertility challenges and/or pregnancy loss, postpartum adjustments, relationship challenges, personal development and growth.

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.
