I believe in the healing power of safe relationships. I believe this because I have experienced being healed through therapeutic relationships. So many of us face the daily pain of being wounded by others, losing people we love, divorce, hating ourselves, feeling ashamed, alone, confused, or numb. We go to great lengths to manage the pain or anxiety we experience and often make wrecks of our lives and those around us. It is my desire to come along side hurting people and foster lasting growth and change. If you can relate to this, Welcome!

Only one thing is certain....Change. But change is hard, no matter where it comes from. Unexpected changes like breakups, injuries, tragic news, and traumatic events can cause emotional struggles, anger and anxiety. You may feel that you don't know who to trust, where to go, or what to feel. Expected changes in life can also be difficult. Having children, dealing with death, divorce, life or aging transitions, or job changes, can also be difficult. Finally, sometimes we desire change, but don't know how to get there! When life changes happen, or need to happen, therapy can help. I would love to help you in this journey.

There are challenges in everyone’s life that can seem daunting. At such times, an experienced guide to assist us in identifying the thoughts and feelings associated with our current difficulties can be beneficial. We all have within us the capacity to be our best selves and live fulfilling lives. We carry with us our unique combination of genetics, upbringing, and life experiences which impact our interactions with ourselves and others. While employing efforts to get our needs met, attain happiness, and create satisfying connections with others, we may find ourselves engaging in ineffective and counterproductive behaviors.

With my background in Child and Adolescent counseling I have found my purpose in help children to learn the necessary skills, gain insight, and give the encouragement needed to grow in this ever changing fast paced thing we call life. Some need a voice while others need an ear to hear their problems and find solutions they can use throughout their lives. I hope to work alongside parents and the child to find the best solutions for whatever is going on in lives of the individuals I hope to serve.

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.
