Struggling with the past intruding into the present? Trauma, whether we’ve lived with it for decades or days, tends to reverberate through our lives in powerful and often unpredictable ways. Feeling worn down by a society where your humanity is a matter of public debate? It’s tough for queer and trans people to find time to be vulnerable when our identities are under attack. Are you an activist running low on steam? Collective liberation is critical to changing the social conditions that cause our suffering, but caring for our individual mental health needs allows us to challenge those conditions with clear eyes and open hearts.

My goal is to provide a non-judgmental, safe place for us to collaboratively work towards you being the healthiest, happiest version of yourself. Together, we can improve your quality of life, resilience, and sense of empowerment.

Why does it always feel like my fault? Why can't I let go of the past? What does making a difference even mean when there's so much suffering in the world? These are some of the most difficult questions that plague us; that drive the tightness in our chest, the tension our jaw, the churning in our stomach. However, our minds, bodies, and communities also have incredibly resilient ways of adapting. In therapy, I help clients understand and leverage the ways their minds and bodies react to regain control of their lives.

Are you experiencing mind-body disconnection? Perhaps you are feeling emotionally numb and detached from physical sensations and present experiences. Trauma disrupts the foundation of the body as a safe place, affecting the trust in self needed to establish and maintain healthy relationships. As a yoga instructor and therapist who specializes in trauma, I help survivors rebuild a sense of trust and safety in the body by incorporating somatic exercises, breathwork and relational skills. Through this holistic approach clients are able to tolerate sensory/emotional experiences to cultivate a compassionate relationship with their body.

Do you find yourself wanting more out of life and relationships? Wanting to feel more understood, connected, alive? We're so often taught that it's not OK to be sad, angry, overwhelmed, or dissatisfied. Shame about these feelings keeps us quiet and alone. True strength is having the courage to show up as our authentic, imperfect self. And only when we let others see us can we experience real connection and live wholeheartedly. Whatever your story, it deserves to be heard. When we share our story in a safe space, it becomes easier to own its painful parts so we can gain freedom through letting go--and find healing, meaning, and joy.

You may find attending therapy to be difficult or scary. I deeply admire the courage it takes to seek therapy and begin the journey of self-exploration and healing. It is not always easy to show up for ourselves, especially when we are facing difficult emotions or life circumstances. However, it is in these moments of vulnerability that the greatest opportunities for growth and healing arise. My hope is that my clients feel supported and encouraged to continue showing up for themselves, even when it may be challenging, and that together we can work towards creating lasting positive change in their lives.

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.
