Are you struggling with difficult life challenges which result in feeling alone and misunderstood? Before my own personal counseling journey, I felt this way, too. As a counselor, it’s my primary goal to walk along side my clients so each one will not feel alone or misunderstood. I commit to safely processing emotional pain with the ultimate goal of helping clients discover their own best resolutions. I always want to place myself within the unique world of each client to provide unconditional understanding and support. I welcome anyone who is ready to share and process in a safe and comfortable place.

Life is an adventure with rocky roads, potholes, cliffs and smoother roads. You are worthy of taking control of the wheel and I am here to help guide you through the adventure. I adapt my therapeutic style to the needs of my clients by going as quickly or as slow as you need. Some days you may just need an ear and not be able to, or willing to, do anything else. Other days you may be ready and willing to move forward toward your goals. Either is perfectly okay.

I work best with clients who know what it's like to struggle - whether the struggle is emotional, physical, financial, or spiritual in nature. My clients typically want a place where they have the room and safety to work through hard topics without judgment on their character, but also someone who will challenge them and assist them in pushing themselves in their growth. They want these things because they truly desire growth in their lives, and they know they can't achieve it with a "yes man" as their therapeutic partner.

As a therapist on staff at Synergy Executive, an RTC for men, I specialize in treating adults who are struggling with addiction. My therapeutic approach is rooted in respect for the individuality of each client and a true sense of empathy for the emotional pain that often underlies substance abuse. While fostering an atmosphere of acceptance, free of moral judgment, I attempt to meet my clients "where they're at" in terms of their degree of motivation for change. Despite the emotional and social chaos that often inhabits my clients' lives, I believe strongly in each individual's capacity for regaining stability and finding meaning.

Maybe you are about to get married. Maybe you are in a relationship and haven't yet considered marriage. Maybe you've been married for 5, 13, even 35 years. Every relationship at some point experiences hardship and difficulty. It takes a lot of effort and energy to make a relationship succeed and stay close connected and intimate. Sometimes, it can be very difficult to find the energy, the will, or the motivation to truly give your heart to your partner. Whenever there is brokenness, my goal is to take those broken parts and bring them back together to make a whole relationship again.

There's no "Just snap out of it!" this time... You've come to realize that you need some help. In the past you have successfully stuffed down troubling memories and emotions but this time it’s different. You're tired of the anxious feelings, disturbing dreams, flashbacks, overwhelm, fatigue(!), and daily mental cloudiness taking its toll. And the impact on your relationships and peace of mind is maddening! Add in well-intentioned friends and family who just seem to make you feel worse - ugh! You're desperate to feel better but don't even know where to begin.

You've arrived in your life, but something is still missing. You've gotten the good job, met that special someone, and maybe you've even started a family. By all accounts, life should feel great, but something is missing. You don't feel excited or passionate about life anymore. Things don't feel bad, but they don't feel truly good either. You feel stuck, complacent, like you're just going through the motions of life, every day exactly the same as the last.

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.
