Have you ever found yourself asking “are things always going to feel this hard?” From the moment we are born, our life experiences and relational connections are integral to creating the neural pathways that control how we think, act and feel. Every conversation, relationship, success, and rejection contribute to paving the roadmap of our brain. The good news is that due to the brain’s plasticity, new pathways can always be created. My hope is to be an avenue that God uses to help you navigate this healing, self-discovery, and growth through a person-centered, empathetic style of treatment.

A therapy session is a judgment-free space for someone to share what they’ve been struggling with. It’s a collaborative experience with a counselor who is there to listen and empower you to reach your goals. Everyone runs into some challenges over the course of their life, and counseling is a fantastic chance to raise their awareness of roadblocks to living the life they want to be living. Throughout counseling, you can expect to grow in awareness and perspective, work towards the goals you have for your life, and do it all in a safe, judgment-free environment.

Relationships can be so rewarding, but they can also be so hard! When our relationships are hurting, it affects all other aspects of our lives. You may feel overwhelmed, sad, anxious, and alone--even when others are with you. Sometimes the arguments get on a cycle, and we can't figure out how to stop them. You do not feel heard and you cannot get your partner to understand you. You ask yourself, why is it so hard to communicate? If your relationship is causing you distress, feels overwhelming, and you do not know how to stop the arguments, then I am here for you!

Children often do not have the words and vocabulary to fully express everything that has happened or how it has impacted them. When given a safe and nurturing environment in which a child can feel comfortable expressing feelings and working through life's obstacles, so much can be positively accomplished regardless of what a child may be going through. I am passionate about meeting each child where he or she is at emotionally by providing a warm, caring, and non-judgmental atmosphere in order to allow the therapeutic agents of change to naturally take place through play.

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.
