Living your best life, a life that is authentic to you is my goal. Life can be hard with unexpected losses, financial and work pressures, relationship problems and more. Together we will discover your goals and decide on the process that is effective and best for you. Life can be present many challenges and obstacles that we are not always prepared for, causing stress, anxiety, insomnia, low self-esteem, agoraphobia, nightmares, difficultly sleeping, overindulgence, depression, and relationship problems. My approach is to help you become aware of what triggers your negative feelings and thoughts and explore ways to reduce symptoms

Life does not go according to a plan or road map, as much as we would like it to. Sometimes we need a little help in regaining our focus or footing. Do you need someone to help you find your inner strength to be the best possible version of yourself? Are you ready to make a change in your life but not sure how to go about it? Maybe you need to make a change but are not quite ready. If you said yes to any of these or have other concerns, I would like to help you.

I work with women, men, non-binary people in all life stages facing complex struggles with the multitude of roles they may hold- parent, significant other, worker, family member. Does it seem like despite all all you give, peace of mind and happiness seems to allude you? Anxiety, depression, overwhelming frustration, perhaps even a tendency to numb the pain in unhealthy ways, all of it is crippling and inexplicable. Do you know how this feels? Are you ready to face these challenges and learn a better way to do this thing called life?

Entering into a psychotherapeutic relationship tends to be preceded by considerable thought, hopes and expectations- and perhaps fears. As a clinical social worker with over 30 years of experience, I work to collaboratively develop a plan for care that reflects the issues that bring the person into treatment at that particular moment.

We all experience times of feeling disconnected, from ourselves, friends, and family. We may feel a little lost and unmotivated, unsure of the path forward. In my work over the past 20 years, I strive to join with clients, each one of them unique and wise, to explore life’s questions and promote skills to overcome challenges. Many times, these answers already exist within the person and our work in the therapeutic process promotes the individual's ability to uncover 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.
