I empathize for today's youth and adults with depression, anxiety, substance use, & autism with the ever-changing world. We are faced with immediate decision-making & strain, which is not fair when we're trying to figure who we are, much less what they want to become in our adulthood. We typically feel lost, confused, misunderstood, or having challenges communicating to others their needs struggle and could benefit with supports in and outside our homes and schools. Also, as adults, we are not sure if we are being "the best parent." I want to help those with depression, anxiety, & ASD build connectivity within themselves and others.

I enjoy working with adults that have unresolved issues that often stem from their childhood experiences. Many of us often feel stuck or on repeat, often making the same "mistakes" or choices that leave us feeling empty and unfulfilled. Gaining insight to past experiences and working through past traumas can provide us with emotional freedom and clarity, which can lead us to living a more fulfilling life.

Many of us are navigating change beyond what we prepared for. When our relationships become a source of stress, rather than the calming connection we seek out, our nervous systems protest, using coping styles designed for combat, not for love. We can push our partner away at the very same moment we need them the most. Are you worn from repeating negative patterns, longing for a clearer map to communicating needs? Marriages are healthiest when couples become shelter for each other, removing blocks to a satisfying bond. Using 30 years experience, I provide couples with personalized tools for more effective, satisfyiing relationships.

When our relationships shift towards dysfunctional, they can become more stressful than comforting. I work with adults in individual, couple, and family therapy to create more comforting relationships with themselves and others. Together we explore issues related to intergenerational trauma, dysfunctional relationship patterns, family issues, and attachment. This often looks like exploring disconnection, unresolvable issues, work-life balance, and setting boundaries. My clients often identify has Highly Sensitive People (HSP) or as therapists and healers. If this sounds like you, let's chat!

You don't have to feel alone. Seeking counseling can feel intimidating. I specialize in working with members of the autism and LGBTQ+ communities (I am autistic and queer myself). If you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, gender nonconforming, or identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, it's important that you find someone with lived experience. I delight in partnering with clients who are exploring their identity and working through the human process of self-acceptance and self-love.

Finding time to focus on taking care of ourselves can be difficult. With the demands of loved-ones, work, and life in general, we may not always be aware of how well we are actually managing our day-to-day lives. It can take a while to pay attention to the fact that the demands of everyday life are taking a toll on us. Or perhaps there is something from the past or present that you or a loved one is having a hard time moving forward from. Whatever the concern, there may have been a change in areas like behavior, appetite, sleep schedule, and/or work performance, just to name a few.

Life is hard, people are imperfect, and circumstances oftentimes just don't seem fair. Many of my clients describe having undergone a significant trauma or series of difficult events in their lives. This tends to create feelings of worthlessness and defectiveness, even despair. They may blame themselves and try to push down their thoughts, feelings, and memories and focus on other things. They may even try to reinvent (or perfect) themselves, but somehow end up reenacting their old struggles in a way that seems to be self-sabotaging. There is often chronic fearfulness as well as sadness and emptiness.

The folks I work with are those who are struggling with feeling connected to themselves and others. Often my clients have difficulty being in the present moment, instead finding themselves lost inside their mind, imagination, or in the past or future. There's often a deep longing to be connected to others but feel as if there's something in the way. Sometimes my clients feel usure of or inconsistent in who they are, uncertain of what they want and have struggled to find happiness and contentment in life. For my clients, life can often feel blurry or fuzzy with difficulty remembering the recent or distant past.

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.
