My approach to therapy includes listening with compassion and without judgment and then helping clients to find the best way for them to move forward. Sometimes just talking about things helps a person to gain insight. Other times the individual may need to learn some new skills or make some changes in their thought process or behavior.

Do you feel like you’re carrying the weight of the world and just need a breath of fresh air? We all have times when we feel as though life is a drain and have trouble finding our purpose and living in true happiness. Sometimes we simply exist instead of discovering the real joy in our journey. Our relationships suffer because we’re not even happy with ourselves. So, how could we possibly be happy with others? How do we reach beyond the trauma in our past, pull through the pain in our present, and reach towards the hope of our future?

Drawing on my previous experience as a youth pastor, I enjoy working with children, teenagers, and young adults. As a play therapist, I have worked extensively with children who are struggling with ADHD and trauma. I also enjoy working with couples and families, and individuals who struggle with addiction, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues and PTSD. The challenge of parenting sparks my interest and I enjoy using humor, emotion coaching, and intergenerational systemic family theories to illuminate and strengthen the resources that parents already have to offer. I believe that solutions can be found by viewing obstacles as opportunities for repair.

Maybe you're over-functioning, or maybe you can hardly get out of bed in the morning. Your past seems to have this unshakable hold on you—leaving you feeling anxious, down, angry, guilty, shameful, numb, or hopeless. There's a sense of disappointment and embarrassment that you haven't figured this out on your own. Those dark humor memes on social media are super relatable. Ever think that maybe feeling terrible shouldn't be relatable?

Many people have to choose between safety and living their lives authentically. Maybe you can relate; you hide parts of who you are to protect yourself from invalidation, discrimination, or rejection. We all need safe places and safe people. Therapy can provide that sense of safety to allow you to be who you truly are and empower you to move towards the life you want to live. It can be scary reaching out to a new therapist, and it can be a wonderful gift to yourself. I believe that you deserve kindness, peace of mind and support. Therapy can be the first step in your journey of self-acceptance and being your authentic self.

I am trauma trained with a certification in play and sand tray therapy. Every child has a need to express emotion. I believe children work through events, stories and presenting problems. The playroom is an opportunity for a child to explore, reflect and/or process life experiences. My favorite quote is "When you are free you can play-and when you're playing you become free."

Stressful situations can cause anxious or depressive thoughts, irritation, or a negative view of self, which can impact your outlook and how you are interacting with others. You may feel overwhelmed and need assistance in working things out. Reaching out can be difficult, however, taking that step can lead to real opportunities for growth and acceptance. Therapy can be helpful in dealing with many issues, such as: low self-esteem, relationships and emotional boundaries, grief and loss, career changes, or caregiver burnout.

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.
