It is magical thinking to keep doing the same thing over and over and expect a different outcome. Often this is what we do in our relationships. Therapy is like pushing a pause button on what isn’t working well–a pause to examine the thought patterns and behaviors that may be keeping us from a more satisfying life. Therapy is a unique way to search for a kinder way to view yourself and to build on that to improve your relationships. This means I meet you where you are and we collaboratively map a path forward.

My work is built on the belief that people naturally want to heal and grow; sometimes we just need someone to help us channel those instincts for change. We need a space to hear our thoughts outside of our heads, a space to observe and examine our feelings and what we hold true about ourselves. You are the expert in your life, and the question I ask myself as a therapist is how can I provide a space and relationship that you can use for personal growth. Some of the most important values that I focus on bringing to that relationship are trust, openness, and curiosity.

You’re ready to feel more confident in navigating life’s stressors and your relationships. Let’s break this cycle and create your new way of living, by design.

I am currently accepting clients for teletherapy. I believe people enter psychotherapy because the ways they have been managing their pain are no longer working, they have become disconnected from their true sense of self, and no longer feel authentic. My goal is to help you to claim a deeper level of self-understanding, genuine intimacy with others, and a sense of purpose and agency in life. Change can be difficult, simply because we fear the unknown. A relationship with a therapist can provide a place of acceptance and safety from which to explore new ways of thinking and behaving.

It’s not just that you don’t rock the boat, it’s that you steady the boat while it's being rocked by others. And you are nothing if not determined. So why that unsettled panicky flutter in bed? You know the one.... mild nausea and critical thoughts on loop while sleep escapes you. The truth is, steadying the boat gives you a perception of control. A sense that everything will be okay if you keep up the façade of okay. But these days the exhaustion is obvious and bone deep. At this point you have tried everything from meditation to medication, & whitewashed therapy filled with worksheets and more pressure to preform. Well screw that.

You may not know that psychotherapy is an effective treatment for a number of medical conditions. As a clinical health psychologist, I specialize in chronic illness, chronic pain, disorders of brain-gut interaction (DGBIs), health anxiety, insomnia, and stress related to navigating the health care system. Therapy can help you to quiet the brain’s natural threat response to symptoms, foster resilience, and embrace life once again.

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.
