I believe that all people are capable of making changes in their lives, and to be invited into that process as a therapist is an honor for me. My philosophy is that therapy is a partnership that is rooted in trust. My job is not to give advice, but to help you in exploring and finding the answers that are already intrinsically within you. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings, including substance abuse treatment facilities, as a behavioral health consultant at a primary care practice, and as the program director for an integrated dual diagnosis program.

I consider it my personal mission to reduce the divorce rate in the United States, 1 couple at a time. But preventing divorce will only be succesful if, in place of unfulfilling or chronically dysfunctional marriages, couples develop truly thriving marriages & deeply fulfilling relationships. Even in the most hopeless-seeming cases, couples can heal the damage from the past and move forward in a healthier way. Not all marriages can be saved, but when couples do the work to heal the past, their future can be happier, no matter what the outcome for the relationship.

Are you your own worst critic? Do you beat yourself up for mistakes that you wouldn’t think twice about if someone else made them? You lie awake in bed haunted by your inner-critic, thinking about the past, wishing that life was different, or wondering why you can’t break free from patterns that are holding you back. Doing your best to make it through each day, can feel like you’re running a marathon. You’re tired of feeling stuck and ready to truly accept and love yourself. You’re ready to make peace with your inner critic and live in the present.

You’re caught in another thought loop. You try to stop and think about something, anything else. But the harder you fight it, the more stuck you get. You’re lost in endless hypothetical scenarios. What if I lose my job? What if this pain in my side is actually something more serious? You’ve begun to second-guess every decision. Your confidence is at an all-time low. The people in your life have noticed that something is wrong. You don’t know how to tell them that you’re suffocating under the weight of constant fear. That you’re almost ready to give up. You need to make a change, but you don’t know how. It all feels so hopeless.

I believe in the inherent ability of a person to heal and make changes that will help establish a full and meaningful life experience. It is often the messages we learn subtly and hold onto, about what our experiences mean, about ourselves and the world around us, that inhibit this natural process of self acceptance and positive growth. As part of the therapeutic relationship, my hope is to provide a supportive space, and a sense of unconditional positive regard, for one to explore the conflicts that keep us "stuck" today.

What I feel I have to offer people is a helpful relationship based on acceptance and safety. My hope is always that together within this supportive relationship you can feel free to explore your thoughts, feelings, strengths, challenges and choices. I've found that understanding and accepting where we are gives us a strong foundation to sustain positive change. In over 30 years of professional experience, I've never worked with a person whose conditions/situations did not make sense, once these experiences have been understood.

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.
