I see you. You are fighting the internal battle of your thoughts and emotions but no one else seems to see it or notice it. You feel alone or sometimes isolated because you appear to be happy and functioning to your loved ones or co-workers. It can feel very overwhelming and cause you to ask yourself “what is wrong with me?” Just because some of us have “battle wounds” that are invisible to others, doesn’t mean they aren’t there. If you are reading this right now, you are at the point of your journey where you are ready to allow someone else to carry some of those heavy feelings with you.

Philosophy is often seen as a dry, esoteric academic field with no connection to everyday life and its problems. This is simply untrue. For millennia, philosophers have asked and given meaningful answers to the deepest, most enduring questions of all: Who are we? What is our purpose? What are truth, freedom, justice, beauty? What is the good life? What is real? What is 'nature' and our relationship to it? In short, philosophers think about what we take for granted when we think about anything else. Together, we will strive to awaken your own philosopher within and, in the words of Nietzsche, help you to become who you are.

Life is messy and difficult. Sometimes you experience deep pain. But you never have to struggle alone. Maybe your life has been turned upside down by loss, a change in your family, or chronic illness. Maybe the life you're living isn't the life you pictured. You're exhausted, depressed, stuck. You want more - more connection, meaning, hope, and purpose. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I am trained to help individuals, couples and families work through the sources of their struggles and to develop healthier and more fulfilling relationships.

Growing up as a child, with a parent being diagnosed with a mental health disorder, I experienced at first hand some of the problems that both individuals and family members are faced with. I watched as my parent was admitted over and over into mental health facilities. Not understanding why so many. I only knew that it was affecting my parent in a bad way as well as the family. This experience lead me into the field with the hope of lending a helping hand and a caring heart to help individuals like my parent obtain a sense of wellness.

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.
