Do you feel like you are drowning? Are you struggling with restlessness, feelings of extreme sadness, trouble concentrating or managing your emotions? Maybe you feel all of these. Whether you are facing anxiety, depression, ADHD symptoms, or emotional challenges, you have the ability to regain control of your life. Even when you feel like you can't. It is possible to find meaning in those dark moments, but it can be a scary place doing it alone.

I believe that therapy inspires change by supporting self-awareness, insight, and growth which then impacts and improves one's life. With new insight, clients become aware of better strategies and new solutions when responding to challenges in their life. Goals of therapy can include changing behaviors that are holding you back, healing pain from your past, managing depression and anxiety, building relationship skills, and handling strong emotions such as fear, anger, sadness, and grief, to name just a few.

Welcome! I have 10+ years of experience working as a psychotherapist and tend to focus on childhood trauma, self-acceptance, and the idea that most of our well-being comes from within ourselves. I treat most mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, compulsive behaviors, substance abuse and relationship conflict. I believe that the therapeutic relationship can be the most healing part of therapy and tend to use that as a guide.

Therapy is a collaborative journey of self discovery in that insight is developed and self awareness is increased. Along the journey, ways of becoming unstuck are discovered and life situations become more manageable through the development of new perspectives and life skills. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I approach clients from a nervous system, attachment and trauma informed perspective. I work with individuals who want to live a more embodied, authentic life and have experienced developmental trauma, struggles with self-esteem, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, and sexual and/or gender identity issues.

So many things can pull us away from feeling fully alive and from having meaningful relationships, to ourselves and to others. I enjoy helping people strengthen their belief in themselves and become less alienated. Therapy with me is about bringing awareness to behavior and thought patterns that no longer serve you. Without recognition of these patterns it is impossible to make a conscious decision to be/do something new. You never know what's possible when you bring energy and imagination to the parts of your self that need attention.

As a mostly Adlerian therapist, I will help clients to explore their behavior patterns which may be interfering with attaining their goals. In order to do this, together we will examine each individual's readiness for change, how fear/anxiety plays a role in keeping them from changing behaviors and explore interpersonal/family relationships. To facilitate the most insight and emotional growth as possible for clients, my goal is to create a comfortable, non-judgemental and confidential environment. Through this environment and exploration clients will be better able to set and attain healthy goals and lifestyles.

Peace of mind. It's something we all yearn for, yet life's challenges can make it feel so elusive. Issues like substance use, anxiety, and depression often stand in the way. But that's where therapy comes in. It takes courage to seek help when you need it most. Amidst the struggles, it's difficult to pause and appreciate the small moments when the weight of larger issues looms overhead. Life is full of hurdles and uncertainties, but wherever you are in your journey of healing, I'll be there to walk alongside you. Because even when hope feels distant, it's always within reach.

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.
