With all that's going on in the world today, it is easy to lose track of our balance and our priorities. Also, it often happens that many of us spend a lot of our energy tending to others, making sure those we love are okay- but we neglect to check in with ourselves. This can leave us feeling empty, lost, hopeless, and overwhelmed. Facing the challenges of day-to-day life doesn't have to feel so hard. When we take the time to pay attention to our own needs, when we fill up our own cup, we can not only improve our lives, but we can begin to see the positive impact we have on others as well.

In my practice, we hold the premise that every person has an innate capacity for healing and unique qualities that have helped them navigate or even survive life. These qualities are called "creative adjustments." However, there can come a time when these creative adjustments become less effective or ineffective. It is here, that we aim to help one achieve healing and relief from pain and discomfort. Our primary work is with children aged 0-18 years and their parents. Individual adults and parents to be are welcome!

I specialize in working with a variety of different age groups and backgrounds. In the therapist role, I believe in meeting the client where they are at, and transparency. When working with younger clients I believe that it is important to also work with the family. I have experience working with families in order to work towards understanding and strengthen the overall family unit. The key to making progress is building and maintaining a trusting and empathetic relationship with the client. For the past 11 years I have primarily worked in the school system as a licensed school counselor.

What would it be like to be able to say no and not have it come with a side of guilt? A life where you only say yes to the tasks, responsibilities, and people that matter most to you? I’ve been there and I can help. I work to help people who struggle to set healthy boundaries with people in their lives, or often need to feel angry or frustrated before they are able to say “no”. This process of learning often feels difficult and one of my passions is helping people identify what is keeping them stuck in the old patterns, discover what they value and who they want to be, then commit to achieving a life that feels worth living.

So here you are...looking for a counselor. You've been considering it, you've got some things you want to work through, but-you're just not sure. Hey...I can't blame you! The idea of counseling, either going for the first time or trying again after a terrible experience can be SCARY! Well, that's not how it's supposed to be-when you meet with me, my one and only goal is to help you feel accepted just how you are, no matter what you're bringing through my door. Are your kids driving you crazy? Is your husband on your last nerve? Memories or old trauma preventing you from moving forward? I can help!

Sometimes life gets complicated and our "go-to" fixes don't work as well. Sometimes we struggle with overwhelming emotions or maintaining successful relationships. Perhaps it's a new problem you're experiencing and you want to learn more about it. Or maybe it's even a probation officer requiring you to do it. Whatever the issue is new or old, finding a therapist is a courageous step to take! I'd be happy to offer you a free phone consultation to help you in finding the right fit.

I believe that each person has the capacity to discover the tools and resources within themselves that they need to heal. When I envision the human person, I consider all aspects of that person, the whole person. My approach in therapy is person centered and through deep listening and compassion I offer clients the opportunity to feel seen and heard. When we feel stuck and alone, a sense of connection can aid us in moving from existing to living. Dr. Peter Levine stated, “Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness”. I hope to be that empathic witness for clients.

Life comes with inevitable changes that can be difficult whether they are planned and wanted, or unplanned and dreadful. With these changes can come emotional issues such as depression, anxiety, or grief, just to name a few. The way we deal with these changes has a lot to do with our past experiences and perception. Our sense of self-worth influences almost every aspect of our lives, and when it's less than healthy, we can miss out on fulfilling our true potential or outright sabotaging ourselves.

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.
