Are you tired of anxiety controlling your life? Constant racing thoughts, turning something over and over in your mind and never getting clarity, body tension, difficulty staying present and enjoying your life... all of that is truly exhausting. Anxiety impacts not only the relationship with ourselves but also the relationships we have with others. Anxiety creates a disconnect and makes it feel impossible to live in the present moment and feel connected to others. It doesn't have to be this way. There's a path towards freedom from the constraints of your own mind and I'm happy to walk with you on that path.

Usually, the thing that brings us to therapy has us feeling stuck. We might feel paralyzed with indecision as parts of our internal selves compete with one another for attention. We might experience recurring conflict with people we care about. We might feel that our identity - our internal self-knowing - is somehow being prevented from fully expressing itself because of messages we receive from family or society. Most often, the reason we seek therapy is some combination of the above, and as a result of our “stuckness” we may feel sadness, despair, anxiety, anger, or an unnerving lack of feeling altogether.

I am passionate about supporting women as they navigate the perinatal period - pregnancy, birth and postpartum. This is a period of transformation, where we may experience changes emotionally, physically, interpersonally, and in identity. The experience surrounding pregnancy and birth, especially when one or both don’t go as planned, can increase feelings of distress, isolation, and overwhelm - adding challenge to an already intense life transition. We tend to have a lot of judgements about how we "should" feel during this time, and it can be quite upsetting when that doesn't match our experience.

Issues like trauma, anxiety, stress, depression, relationship concerns, self-worth, disordered eating, and grief are hard to navigate on our own sometimes. My job is not to tell you what to do or what you want to hear. Instead, I aim to create a compassionate and collaborative space to explore unresolved traumatic experiences that are negatively impacting you and excavate problematic patterns - while identifying solutions to current problems, fostering your resilience, and unearthing your potential.

We all get stuck in behavior patterns that aren’t necessarily what we want for ourselves. Really, if we could choose, none of us would struggle with worries, fears, doubts, sadness, or loneliness. We wouldn’t need to try to push away these difficult emotions by engaging in avoidant or even destructive behavior patterns. It’s natural to try and protect ourselves from emotional pain, but the cost is high. Our lives get smaller, more inflexible, less meaningful, and less vital. My goal in working with individuals is to help people open up, live in the present moment, and make choices that are driven by values, rather than fear.

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.
