Anxiety and stress are overwhelming, and keeping your emotions in check seems like a constant struggle. You feel like you should be able to handle these things- it seems like other people can. Deep down you know that you're smart, so what gives? You push yourself harder and over-think in an attempt to find a solution. You end up irritated, tense, and mad at yourself. Ever since you were a kid, people have told you how sensitive you are. You're a deep thinker, and it's hard to stop and fall asleep, which keeps that cycle going day after day. You're tired, & want to let go of anxious thoughts, relax, & stop being so hard on yourself.

Happiness can be difficult to achieve. Many times, we are in situations in which we need to make changes in our lives to promote mental wellness. Making changes in our lives can feel difficult and complicated. We can feel stuck at certain times of our lives, realizing we've been avoiding chronic problems, or needing to make changes in relationships. If we don't use these opportunities for self reflection and change, we can find ourselves with increased depression and anxiety. I really like to work with clients that are working through their stuck points and help them make changes to improve their quality of life.

I thoroughly enjoy helping clients to be authentically themselves within a safe and comfortable space. Each person is unique in their own way, and because of this they may need a unique approach in therapy. I look at the therapeutic relationship as a team, we can collaborate together to work on any issues that may be troublesome. Transparency is an important part of the therapeutic relationship, and I encourage it on both sides in order to create a non-judgmental space.

Everything has patterns; the way we think, behave and feel. Most of us developed these in childhood and continue them throughout our lives. Sometimes they are helpful and sometimes they cause us suffering and pain. Learning to identify these patterns and distinguish which are healthy and unhealthy can help to build a more enriching and engaging life. I focus on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory and Mindfulness to help client's process through their patterns, emotions and relationships in a safe and relaxed environment. Change can only happen when there is trust and respect.

I enjoy working with a variety of issues: including (but not limited to) anxiety, depression, self harm, eating disorders, and suicidality. I also love the tough cases; the cases others are afraid to touch. You AREN’T too much for me. You won’t freak me out or scare me off. I like leaning into "all of it" and dissecting ways to better approach life’s challenges. Sometimes we just need to know that we are going to be alright. And other times, we might just need someone to share the silence. Regardless of the issues, we will figure this out together.

Welcome! My passion as a therapist is rooted in helping others recognize and fulfill their potential, while navigating life’s inevitable challenges. I view going to therapy as a chance to be “selfish” in a world where we are often consumed with fulfilling obligations outside of ourselves. Therapy is an opportunity for clients to invest in themselves, take time to process their feelings, and reflect upon events in their lives. My approach as a therapist leans heavily on evidence based practices, and is tailored towards the individual needs of each client.

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.
