When we are lost or realize things are not working, there is a path to a more hopeful future. For some, reaching out to a therapy for the first time may be intimidating, but seeking help and support to deal with life's challenges is the first step toward a more positive and purposeful life. I bring honest and genuine intention to work with you as a unique whole individual-one that is not defined by diagnosis. Our environment will be empathetic and warm, free of judgement to explore your experiences and struggles in a safe and confidential setting.

Many athletes struggle with the mental aspect of sports, yet it's often the most overlooked part of an athlete's training. Elite athletes must focus as much on their mindset as their physical abilities. Mental toughness is not just for some people. Having a mental game coach to guide you through some of your personal mental and emotional obstacles could be the game changer you've been seeking for years. Maybe you're a young athlete looking to play at the next level? Perhaps you're just trying to perform better in your local league? A mental game coach can pinpoint your blocks and move you beyond them to play with confidence.

It is essential that therapists are competent and have evidence-based ideas on how to get from A to B, but therapy at its best is a collaborative relationship. A safe space of non-judgment and curiosity. My stance is non-pathologizing. One of profound respect for every person and a belief that they already hold, and have always held, the key to their own growth and well-being. Personal experience with non-ordinary states and Internal Family Systems therapy has deepened my commitment to assist my clients in accessing this intrinsic inner-healing wisdom and ultimately live more courageously and authentically.

Do you know what you want and can't get there? Or perhaps you know what you DON'T want, but continue to experience it?

If you are tired of this rollercoaster of confusion, and want to experience the joy that arises when you heal young, hurt parts of yourself, I can help. Ultimately this is about cultivating a healthy relationship with yourself. This is where your power lies.

Chilmark, MA 02535  (Online Only)
Death and/or abandonment of a primary caregiver early in life often lays the foundation for anxiety and depression. Untimely losses can resonate both in the body and the mind creating a fear of moving forward. In therapy we explore attachment issues from the perspective of early development. I also see patients struggling with other losses, including cognitive decline in themselves or their family member. I have an in-depth and empathic understanding of how families and individuals live with the intense stresses of not only of personal loss, but everyday life.

Steps to feeling better includes engaging in a process of self-discovery, learning and growing. Negative patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving are changeable. Some patterns are counter intuitive to living a healthy and happy life. I enjoy guiding clients in their own journey of self-discovery, via identifying barriers and opportunities in reaching personal goals. The therapeutic process is not always a linear path, there are twists and turns. However, there are evidenced-based strategies that can help you. My goal is to present them to you, show you how to use them until one or several provide meaningful results.

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.
