Life can be overwhelming and sometimes challenging to handle on our own. Often healing is needed to help us navigate the things beyond our control. In therapy, I hope to create a sense of belonging. I believe every life has intrinsic worth and deserves a sense of belonging. Creating a place where this is felt and believed, where one is seen and heard, is a place where healing can begin. I utilize a relational approach in therapy, as I believe an authentic therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is key. I strive to provide a warm space in which clients feel safe, valued, and heard.

Now is the time to establish a therapeutic relationship to help navigate these challenging times. The world can feel chaotic; our lives need not mirror this tumult. Feelings of irritation, sadness, fear, and emptiness are normal in times of change and uncertainty. When these feelings become overpowering or they are negatively impacting your life: change is critical. I believe exploring your ideal personal philosophy is critical to (re) establish life balance.

With more than a decade of experience in hospitals, clinics, and private practice, I am guided by the belief that there is more that’s right with people, than is wrong with people. There is much about the way we live that contributes to the feeling of disconnection and destabilization that so many of us feel. And yet, few of us were ever taught the skills to navigate the seemingly simple (but actually pretty complex) worlds that we live in.

I work with clients who live with intense emotions. Deep depression, constant anxiety, intense anger, and other clients—who want to avoid feeling all together. Emotions often drive my client's choices—how they choose to behave or speak (or bow out of engaging/speaking) depends on how they are feeling. This tends to create chaos and damage relationships. My clients become aware of their thoughts and emotions without being ruled by them. My style is warm, highly curious, non-judgmental, and collaborative. It is important to me that you feel comfortable, with me, and in my space.

My approach is to listen to what you say in order to get a sense of what is bothering you, and of your life as you see it and as you long for it to be, and, I will note what you don't say in order to discover patterns that may keep you stuck. I will work with you to understand your particular problem, to get at what it is about, but ultimately to understand you, because no one problem can be truly understood outside of the context that is your life.

I work with people who want better relationships with others and better relationships with themselves. Couples, families, and individuals I see are bright, curious, motivated people who find their lives disrupted somehow - by the intrusion of traumatic experiences, life transitions, or persistent struggles with mental health that don't resolve on their own. I have a deep understanding of the unique therapy needs of therapists and doctors and their partners and families, and I enjoy working with folks anywhere on the gender and sexuality spectra. I also work with torture and war trauma survivors, refugees, and asylum seekers.

We never stop growing and evolving as people, but sometimes we all need help knowing the best way to move forward. I believe that one of the most important aspects of our evolution is to learn how to be in relationship with ourselves and those around us. Consequently, my therapeutic perspective is deeply based in thinking about the systems and context that my clients are in currently, as well as those that they have come from, and that shape their experiences. I am committed to supporting individuals, couples, and families in this process, and in learning more about themselves.

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.
