To grow, to change, and to learn about oneself and those we are close to is a challenge we all face. At times this challenge can feel overwhelming and difficult. There are times in life when engaging in therapy is truly beneficial. Loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties occur. Life transitions can call upon us in ways that are truly unexpected and create disruptioins we are unprepared for. Trained as a clinical psychologist, I have been in practice 30+ years and have worked with individuals, couples, and families looking to change, searching for relief, and open to their own healing.

My practice is based in decades of direct psychotherapy with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families; the teaching of counseling, race, class, gender and the wide range of social identity dynamics; consultation; supervision; research; and publication. I look forward to working with clients eager to explore life challenges in the context of a professional relationship that is supportive, compassionately challenging, well-informed by theory, egalitarian, and appreciative of humor and irony as keys to coping. Severe addiction and severe cognitive or psychiatric challenges are beyond the scope of my practice at present. Private pay only; no medical insurance payments.

When children experience challenges learning, paying attention, interacting socially, or struggling emotionally, parents often need support to better understand these challenges. Neuropsychological testing provides information about how a child is growing, identifying areas of strength and possible challenge so that parents are in a better position to support their child's development. I work collaboratively with parents to tailor an assessment to understand the nuances and unique context of each child's experience. From the assessment, recommendations are offered to develop a specific plan to address the child's particular needs.

I am a psychologist with 25 years of experience working with adults and adolescents. At times, people seek therapy because their needs feel urgent and immediate: They are acutely sad, are dealing with loss, or are confronted with a challenging decision. At other times, the quest for treatment reflects a subtle but persistent experience that something in a person's life is missing or imbalanced. The demands and intricacies of daily life intensify these challenges. I can help you to become clearer about who you are and what you want in the midst of them.

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.
