I began my career working with caregivers of adults living with dementia. This prepared me for moving into work with children and adults with autism and other similar diagnoses. I currently also enjoy working with school-aged children, their families, and individuals looking to do the work to make meaningful change in their life.

Being a highly sensitive person, struggling with self-esteem and feeling overwhelmed can be draining. Maybe you are struggling with anxiety or negative thoughts about yourself and are feeling ready for therapy. Turning to family and friends can be great, but therapy is a place where the focus is all on you. Reaching out for help is courageous and caring towards yourself. To find clarity, it helps to have someone truly listen to you. When you are heard, you find what it is you value and need. Having support in therapy can lead you towards empowerment and confidence.

Welcome! Starting therapy takes courage, but you are worth it! We often get stuck in negative thought patterns, communication breakdown, or navigating a difficult stage of life. These can prevent us from moving forward and living the life we desire. Present problems frequently have their roots in past experiences. Understanding this connection allows us to create awareness and facilitate acceptance and healing. A client once told me that "therapy is like creating a painting of all my experiences, thoughts and feelings. It was then that I could see the beauty and the struggle - my strengths and areas where I needed to grow."

Too often it seems like we can't talk about the hardest experiences in life, leading to isolation and loneliness. I believe we need to shine a light on and normalize the hard things in life. The journey to parenthood is one of those hard things few talk about honestly. We are told it will be easy and joyful, when it may actually feel scary, challenging, or look differently than you imagined. It might even seem impossible to achieve, unfair, or heartbreaking. No matter your journey, I will provide you with a safe space to find hope and healing during this time of transition.

I have been a psychologist in practice for over 30 years. I work in a collaborative style with clients. I am active in that I ask questions, make specific suggestions or assignments and may suggest monitoring moods or behavior. Although I am eclectic in that I will use whatever therapeutic approaches will be most effective in helping clients reach their goals, I primarily work from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. Cognitive-behavioral treatment is best for helping change negative thought patterns and beliefs that underlie problem moods and behaviors. It is focused on the here and now and has been found effective with many problems.

The last few years have brought loss and uncertainty for many of us. If you feel stressed, overwhelmed, or just stuck, you're not alone. Sometimes people need extra support and a safe space to let it all out, process what’s happened, and reflect on unhelpful patterns. Maybe you’re a people-pleaser. Maybe you want to set boundaries and say “no.” Maybe you’re navigating a transition or relationship. Perhaps you tend to spiral. Maybe you just want to better understand yourself. If this sounds like you, I can help.

FAQs - About Therapy and Counseling

How can I find a therapist in Lansing?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

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.
