You are lying in your bed at 3:00am and you're not sure what went wrong or how things in your life got so derailed. It seems like there is no end to your worrying, stress and fear. This isn’t how you thought life would unfold for you. You can't connect the dots to how you got here, and you certainly can't envision where to go next for things to feel better. Or maybe you're part of a couple, and you don’t recognize the person lying next to you anymore, and you don’t know what happened in your relationship: you think you loved this person - you know you did love this person - but you have no idea how things got so disconnected.

As a counselor for over 20 years, I get how overwhelming life can be. You might be wondering, "How can I go forward? Who am I now?" It might be hard to imagine you'll ever feel normal or happy again. You might wonder if it is even worth it. We'll look at your history to make sense of what happened, and how you got through it. Looking at how you've changed, and what you want now can be overwhelming. Together we can sort it out. As a cancer survivor I offer insight into navigating significant life changes, and options for growth. Figuring out who to lean on, and options to strengthen your spirituality can help with trauma, as well.

Sometimes we all need to talk to someone, to get feedback, direction, or just to sort things out. Sometimes things build up and it can be difficult to figure out the next direction. It can feel overwhelming to try to navigate through life and to know how to handle things, whether it is stress, anxiety, depression, family issues or multiple other things that weigh us down or keep us up at night. We can feel like we might be judged for how we have handled things, but the truth is that we all need help to figure things out at some point.

Are you feeling stuck, angry, anxious, or finding little pleasure in life? Are you having trouble "getting over it"? Feeling unsatisfied or frustrated in your relationships? There is hope. Hurts can be healed, past or present. While I work with many different issues, I specialize in working with people with trauma, those who are grieving or struggling with any kind of loss, couples and relationship issues, and compassion fatigue for those who care for others. While therapy is not easy, I believe change and healing are possible, regardless of your circumstances, hurts, or issues you are facing.

I conceptualize people's lives as being like a recipe. If you (or I) put the ingredients into the bowl, we get a predictable final product- either good, bad or mixed. If you work with me we will figure out the good and the bad ingredients of your recipe. Some ingredients are beyond your control, some are not. We will then figure out how you can keep the bad ingredients out and the good ingredients in your life. What do you want your life to look like? Are you willing to pay the price to achieve that recipe?

Additionally, I work to promote healing within badly damaged intimate relationships. Initially, I aim to help clients gain immediate relief from the feelings of overwhelm and distress that brought them to counseling to begin with. Subsequently, I collaborate with clients to diagnose and heal the deeper sources and causes of their suffering and addiction.

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.
