As a therapist, I believe early intervention is key. Children are growing up in this big world we live in and are expected to know how to regulate their emotions, utilize and explore coping skills, and communicate their wants and needs safely. These skills must be taught, explored, and nurtured throughout the entirety of their life. My goal as a therapist is to set my client’s up for future success by assisting them in developing healthy coping strategies and strengthening their communication skills. I wish to provide a safe space for them to make mistakes, grow, and have fun learning new skills.

I believe therapy is most helpful when it combines introspection and self-discovery with planning and action. My goal as a therapist is to assist my client in exploring the "stuff" that seems to be getting in the way in his or her life. Once we know what the roadblocks are, they become easier to navigate or overcome. This work often leads to new personal insights or changes that serve to bring you closer to your personal goals.

Often in adulthood, we gain awareness of the maladaptive patterns and traumatizing experiences which have impacted us since childhood. The first step in post-traumatic growth is seeing that the patterns no longer benefit us, or recognizing that processing trauma can make life more meaningful. If you're here and seeking a guide for your post-trauma growth journey, connecting with a therapist may be the next step for you. When supported, you can connect to your own vision and self-power to create and accomplish your healing goals. Learn more at www.trailheadtherapist.com.

“This world is becoming crazier every day!” While that seems to be true locally to globally, the chaos within does not have to rival that which besieges us. Truth is, we need to learn to manage ourselves in healthful ways despite The Crazy. Optimal mental, emotional, and relational health help us develop into better versions of ourselves. We can improve depression, anxiety, decision-making, goal-setting, and adjusting to change. Identifying resources for growth, enhancing authenticity, honesty, perspective, self-awareness, strengths, & vulnerability may increase confidence, satisfaction, & fulfillment. This is the stuff of therapy.

You've been going through it. Your partner, friends, and family see it too. You just want to move on with your life & do this adulting thing, but don’t know how. It happens to us all at some point, but you're still unsure about talking to someone. Going to therapy is a huge step for yourself because you've felt tired of be tired long enough. For me, therapy goes best as a conversation between people as if over tea and maybe a soothing game of Mario Kart. If this sounds like you, it looks like you're ready for a chat. I’m looking forward to joining your journey.

I specialize in the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). DBT is an evidence-based treatment that helps individuals learn to better manage thoughts, emotions and behaviors that cause problems in living. Examples of problems that DBT effectively treats include mood dysregulation, impulsivity, trouble with relationships, suicidal thoughts and self-harm. Although DBT was originally developed to treat BPD, it is also effective in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD and addiction.

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.
