While we are capable of managing a lot, sometimes we may feel too sad, too scared, too tired, or too lonely. This can make having a relationship, family, school, work, or just living that much more overwhelming. Life is also full of surprises and you might be going through changes that feel too daunting or even devastating. You might have struggled for a long time or just recently. Despite your best effort, you still feel quite stuck, helpless, confused, or frustrated. You might even know what you need or want to do differently, but not so sure about where or how to start. This is a great start and I am so glad we found each other.

It seems inevitable that at some point in everyone's life, the thread that connects us to our deepest center becomes frayed or lost. We may experience this as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, physical illness, feeling "stuck", and more. These symptoms are messengers of the soul and can lead us to that deep place where healing and transformation can occur. Our psyche also speaks to us through joy, a sense of "calling," intuitions, synchronicities, talents, etc... but often we listen best to pain. Together, we can rediscover your authentic Self and access your own wellspring of healing.

I’m passionate about relationships, parenting, attachment, and how our childhoods shape the way we interact with the world around us. I believe our physical bodies hold the key to much of our mental and spiritual experiences, and learning to hold valuable space for all the parts of us—even the scary ones—is the work I hold dearest. I focus on building a safe and respectful connection with my clients. In our work together I will pull from a trauma-informed, strengths-based approach that often utilizes CBT, Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) techniques.

Congratulations on taking this first step towards improving your health and relationships. Are you feeling stuck, worried, disappointed, or a whole host of difficult emotions right now? I get it. As a working mom, wife, friend, dog lover and self-proclaimed artist, I often find myself overwhelmed with all that's going on around me. It's easy to let that feeling take away your joy and lose sight of what matters most in life. I believe all people just want to feel a sense of belonging and contributing. A true sense of self. I think this is achieved in community with others and I am here to help you get there.

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.
