Feeling trapped? Swamped? Confused? Life can often seem like a whirlwind, with many things beyond our grasp. Dedicating time to prioritize personal growth, altering negative behaviors and thought processes, and enhancing skills to embrace what you cannot change is a valuable investment. An investment that paves the way for a more balanced, tranquil, and liberated life. I specialize in mindfulness, expressive exercises like writing and drawing, and nature-based work. No art experience required. Expressing yourself creatively is a powerful method to bridge your emotions and thoughts.

There is an ever-fluctuating flow of experience. -3 Basic Truths from Buddha Can you imagine having a trained professional support and guide you through the ups and downs of life? I see myself as a skills-based teacher that will support and encourage you to “create a life worth living (-Marsha Linehan).” Anxiety, depression, mood dysregulation, and feeling stuck can hinder us in our journey to be the best versions of ourselves.

I'm a counselor and ADHD coach, specializing in the treatment of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD) for adults and couples. I also help adults overcome the lingering effects of childhood trauma (a.k.a. developmental trauma). Most of my clients have both. I also have experience with Autism Spectrum Disorder, another commonly co-occurring condition. I do not work with children. You may find counseling with me to be different than what you’ve experienced in the past. I use techniques that go beyond talk therapy, including EMDR, EFT/Tapping, and Ego State / Parts Work. Because sometimes, talking about it isn't enough.

I enjoy working with people to help them reach their potential in life. Many people live through difficult experiences which tend to negatively impact them and stunt their ability to move forward. My goal is to help you overcome these obstacles to help you flourish. Whether it is anxiety, depression, anger or fear, I will work on determining what the underlying cause of the distress is. Counseling does not have to be long term. Many of my clients have had success over a short period of time in counseling while others have needed long term support.

The quality of the therapeutic alliance is a well-established factor for successful therapy outcomes. Part of what creates a strong therapeutic alliance is conveying to another human being that every part of that whole person is important and worthy; every part of them. Part of what builds a strong therapeutic alliance is showing the person that you can tolerate and hold their pain and suffering. I've worked extensively with individuals experiencing history of trauma, homelessness, chronic mental illness, domestic, violence, and substance abuse. I take a heartfelt and impassioned approach to the clinical work I do.

"I have walked through many lives, some of them my own, and I am not who I was, though some principle of being abides, from which I struggle not to stray." These lines, from "The Layers", by Stanley Kunitz, hint at the themes we will explore if you decide to enter psychotherapy with me: Who have you been, and who are you now? What principle of being has shaped your life's journey thus far? Where and when did you disregard this principle? And how may I support you in your effort to recognize and honor your most authentic self?

Only accepting holistic & energy-coaching clients at the moment. Life is full of transitions and awakenings to deeper levels of who you are, but sometimes these transitions are bumpy and we can get stuck in sensations, emotions, stories, or reliving past trauma. I have navigated several life-altering transitions and have, over time, discovered ways to move through these changes using techniques grounded in mindfulness and the body. Discovering oneself is an ongoing process, one that I am engaged in, and I'm ready to share with you techniques and strategies to support your journey.

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.
