Currently, I have availability for two clients. I am a state-licensed, nationally board-certified professional counselor with 32 years of experience. As a psychotherapist, my focus is holistic; treating the whole person and focusing on clients' gifts and skills, not just the so-called presenting problem. I believe all of us have answers within and need an objective, caring professional to help us discern what those answers are.

Trauma can be defined as our emotional and psychological response to a distressing event. It can be difficult to resolve traumatic memories when the event and emotional response validate a negative core belief we hold about ourselves. I am an EMDR trained therapist and I believe strongly in the efficacy of EMDR in resolving trauma and negative core beliefs. I also use existential philosophy to inform my practice, meaning I focus on self-awareness, relationships, personal power, free will, and self-determined choices.

There are many reasons people start using substances and typically one commonality to stop using: the desire to be healthy and find a "new normal". I've seen many lives changed for the better when recovery becomes a part of life's routine. COVID 19 is sending our communities towards a new normal and as a counselor, I’m ready to help people develop a new, drug free normal.

Greetings. I imagine that you may be struggling with many difficult emotions, behaviors, and/or situations at this time. Clients who work with me find themselves encouraged to become active problem-solvers within their own lives, while also receiving the validation, support, and guidance needed to navigate the challenges they are facing. Our work together may mean processing and working through difficult material from your past, and/or it may mean a focus on more current concerns and then engaging together in problem-solving/stress management.

Now Accepting New Clients - There’s no denying it, sometimes life can be really hard. And in addition to the many things happening outside ourselves, we all tend to get in our own way as well. We all sometimes think, feel, or do things that aren’t consistent with the person we want to be. This is completely normal, but it doesn’t have to be that way, and I’d like to help you make it better.

Therapy is an interactive process where we explore solutions and experience ourselves in new ways. Sometimes we feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, and depressed. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), a proven approach to treating numerous problems. I believe memories shape the way we feel about ourselves, others, and the world, and EMDR can help neutralize the negative energy we hold in the body.

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.
