Every client is so unique, it would be impossible for me to describe the “ideal client”. I suppose if I was to have to narrow it down, I would prefer a client be open to communicating and be in a place where they are ready to do the things they need to do to accomplish their goals. Most clients come into therapy knowing what they would like, and many know what they need to do to get to where they want, there just seems to be a gap in knowing what needs to be done and making moves.

My passion is to help clients recognize the true root issues that are occurring, given their specific symptoms, with the goal of addressing these issues in order to lead healthy and hopeful lives. My passion is utilizing techniques from primarily Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy treatment modalities, as well as others that seem best suited for each individual client. I have utilized these approaches to successfully help individuals overcome grief, trauma, loss, and poor self-esteem issues, among other things.

I practice therapy from the premise that our thinking patterns are generally what control our moods. If we want to feel better, we must think better. In order to help clients lead manageable, healthy lives, I teach methods by which to modify or replace problematic thinking, and I foster a supportive environment in which clients may grow within the framework of their own values and goals. If it bothers you, I believe it is worth talking about.

If anybody asks, your life is great. But you know deep down it's chaos. You are exhausted, and you feel like giving in the towel. Life feels like it's a constant mess. Your relationship is falling apart. The family is a wreck. You're probably not satisfied in your job. Literally everything feels like it's a disaster. Luckily, it's not too late. There's still time to restore the pieces and get back to the person you want to be.

Everybody thinks your life is perfect. And you act like everything is wonderful. But deep down, it's a daily struggle just to keep it all together. Something's missing, and it has been for a while. Life isn't fun anymore. It feels like there's no joy left. And if we're being honest, this may be your last-ditch effort before throwing in the towel. When did it get this way? How did a life that was supposed to be happy begin to feel like a prison?

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.
