Is it possible to have a really good, satisfying relationship? I believe it is. Having a partnership that is growing, nurturing and fulfilling is not only possible - it is a skill that can be learned. As a Couple and Family Therapist, I have the latest training in relationship systems with an inclusive lens covering all types of relationships. Along with this evidence-based theory I bring a lifetime of psychological study and practice tested over time in my own partnership relationship. We never fight. Good communication skills and clear boundaries serve us well. Helping others find joy in their relationships is my highest calling.

About Louisa Gould, LICSW: People seem to find me when they are supposed to in life. Clients who come to see me, often feel as though they need support with something in life. Mainly I find that most of us experience some sort of interruption in our lives. These interruptions can be addictions, losses, toxic relationships, difficult decisions, traumatic situations or can take many other shapes and forms throughout life. It is my belief that it is through these interruptions, that people often seek counseling and support. No one should have to travel through life alone.

I don't have any evening or late afternoon appointments available. Changes and transitions in life, whether positive or negative, can be overwhelming. At some time in our lives, we can find ourselves facing depression, life circumstances, or navigating life’s transitions like aging. We can become overwhelmed with being a caregiver to children or a loved one with an illness. It’s important to learn how to cope with life’s variety of stressors.

I have found that when someone is truly heard and understood that an internal shift occurs. This shift allows for greater flexibility, coping, and decision making. I work with people to clarify what they want, the options available to them, and the course of action that works best for them. This may mean working with thoughts, feelings, and/or behaviors that inhibit the desired changes or learning new skills and attitudes that promote bringing about these changes. I work to support the inherent human capacity for adaptability which becomes worn down by daily stressors and/or stressful life events.

Life feels like it's spinning uncontrollably; where every task is overwhelming. Even if you're able to go to work and be productive, this feeling inside doesn't stop. The thoughts keep coming, you get stomach aches, head aches, you have trouble sleeping. You've tried everything. Drinking too much or abusing other substances becomes a coping method. There's no way things can change. Often, adults and teens feel this way and it can be scary and frustrating. If your a parent, it can be agonizing to watch your teen go through this. Feeling helpless and alone. I so often hear, "I know I need something different, but what?"

Life can be hard but with the right support, nothing is impossible. At different times in life we all become terrified, triggered, overwhelmed, or just realize things are not working.

I believe that if you are seeking help now, then you have made the first step onto the road of recovery. The process of change can be very different for everyone, and I tailor my approach to wherever you are in your journey. My approach is goal directed, yet patient and empathic. I strive to help those motivated for change begin to find their true path in life. I also identify a more holistic/integrative approach to therapy, by looking at how mental health impacts the whole person (mind, body, soul). My practice will eventually expand to offer behavioral health with holistic wellness techniques and services.

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.
