The world is full of stress and each individual sees the world and their stress uniquely. I believe that there is no one-size-fits all approach to therapy and I prioritize meeting the individual where they are. A client's self-awareness and choices are key to developing self-direction and independence. My techniques will include interventions from Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Narrative, Emotion Focused and other systemic approaches. I believe success in counseling comes from a strong rapport and trustworthy working relationship between counselor and client. I operate from a strengths-based and encouragement-focused approach.

You lay in bed at night wondering if your partner will ever see your pain. You feel alone, unimportant, unappreciated. You do not feel the love you once felt. Now it feels like you are just roommates. You try to talk with your partner about what is bothering you. But your partner either misses your pain or it turns into an argument. The two of you just end up further apart and more alone. You know you cannot do this anymore. The pain is too much.

Maybe we are stuck in our valued relationships, or simply within ourselves, with old stories and emotions we wish could move and change. If you are seeking therapy today, congratulations! You are already moving toward gaining a new perspective toward yourself and your relationships. Maybe you have a specific goal in mind-- perhaps to change a dynamic in your marriage or with your your children. Maybe you want to relieve a symptom-- depression, anxiety or a habit you can't change. Maybe you just have the vague sense that parts of your self got left behind.

I primarily work with young adults, teenagers and children. In session, we work through symptoms of depression, anxiety, and ADHD, among others, while paying attention to trauma history and its impact on current life circumstances. When working with children, it is important for me to involve parents and caregivers in understanding their child's struggles and how best to support, nurture and care for them. Oftentimes, my clients come to session without a full understanding of their negative feelings and how to express them; this is often something we work through together.

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.
