You have been juggling it all: work, relationships, family, life. Yet, in the middle of the night, you find yourself wide awake with worry, your mind racing wondering how you will get through the next day. Maybe you feel stuck and overwhelmed at this point in your life and believe you “should” feel happy and grateful but can’t figure out what is at the root of your unhappiness. Perhaps an inner critic has you questioning yourself, and you're ready to see yourself in a kinder, more accepting way. You might be here because a significant event like losing a loved one, divorce, or medical diagnosis has you feeling lost and alone.

I work with women wanting healthy relationships and a renewed sense of vitality and life satisfaction. If you struggle with chronic anxiety, depression, or unfulfilling relationships, I provide a warm and safe space to share your experience and work through issues. Two of the greatest gifts therapy can offer is resolving unfinished business and experiencing a sense of 'okayness' even in the midst of life's challenges. I will invite you to explore your 'stuck or wounded' places, and uncover options for moving forward, as well as healing old hurts and new, to create the life you want for yourself and rewarding relationships.

Change and life transitions can be difficult and scary. You don't have to go through them alone. COVID has affected everyone and their emotions. We have all been challenged to live our lives differently. Are there more family members living at home? Has your job changed? Are your children learning virtually now? Do you have a family member in hospital or nursing home that you can't visit as often as you would like? You may find yourself anxious or depressed. Your self esteem may be wavering. You may feel lonely. You don't have to be alone with any of this. I can help.

As a therapist, I take a collaborative approach with patients to relieve distress, improve well-being, and develop new insights. Together, we will identify patterns in living that you want to change, and discover how prior experiences have shaped your emotional life, relationships, and behavior, perhaps in ways that are outside of your awareness. I treat patients who experience anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, challenges related to work and career, and stress that is related to life transitions. I work with adults of all ages, and I have special expertise in working with parents of children with disabilities.

You may be here because your life is feeling pretty messy right now, overwhelming, and hard. Or maybe you’re feeling stuck and you don’t know how to get unstuck. Or past experiences and past trauma affect your daily life and your relationships. Or perhaps your relationship is not where you want it to be, and you long for it to be better..but you don’t know what to do next. Would you like to finally feel less overwhelmed and actually experience getting unstuck, so that you can see yourself in a different light? With a clearer perspective, that feels empowering, accepting and self-loving, with more calmness, balance and ease?

Counseling gives you an opportunity to manifest the life you deserve. It can be difficult to see beyond the behaviors and patterns holding you back when you’re stuck in unproductive cycles. In therapy, you can begin the process of healing so that you can effectively open yourself up to the right kind of relationships that will meet your needs. Throughout counseling, I will gently challenge you to dig deeper into your history and past wounds so that you can begin to see where certain obstacles originated. By untangling some of these elements, you can clarify what you want and need out of life.

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.
