Life can be challenging and remaining on a unproductive path can make us "stuck". I believe in the power of hope as a central factor in providing the motivation necessary for change that can propel individuals and families towards the future of their dreams. Shared hope for a positive future is the underpinning of all that I do. I am devoted to helping individuals and families fulfill their hopes for the future. It is known that positive expectations promote psychological and physical well-being. I focus on developing hope-inspiring strategies that mobilize internal and external resources for sustaining healthy change.

It’s a fact…life and the relationships we forge in it can be challenging, difficult, and just downright hard. At times, the struggle of trying to cope with intense emotions such as anger or sadness, or life stressors, can make it feel like there are more bad days than good. Still, even on the good days, you somehow feel undeserving of the joy you so desperately long for because you are overwhelmed by the internal struggle of negative thoughts of fear, doubt, and/or shame. You feel stuck, and you just want to get to the root of things to experience the genuine peace, joy, and contentment you desire. Rest assured…you are not alone.

Part of being human means facing stressful and frightening situations. Most of the time we can tolerate and cope with these. Other times our problems become unmanageable. Situations, problems, relationships, work, school and other life experiences produce thoughts, feelings and unhelpful behaviors that become so overwhelming we begin to believe that we will "never" find a way to get through it. If your feelings and thoughts seem too big for you to manage at this time then I would be honored to join you and assist you to find new strategies and information that will help you cope more effectively now and in the future.

There's a quote by Dr. Russell Barkley that says, "The kids who need the most love will ask for it in the most unloving ways." Because I'm a mother of 5 that has 11 years of experience with adoption issues, I know this to be true. Developmental trauma has a huge impact on children, whether it is a result of inconsistent early caregiving (adoption/foster/difficult home life), a difficult pregnancy or delivery, early hospitalization, abuse, or neglect. These are the kids that desperately need to feel loved and secure, but will act out in many ways to test their caregivers' resolve.

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.
