I’ve been a psychotherapist for almost twenty years and have worked with individuals, families, and children.  I find my work with adult females to be the most rewarding because I can relate to the issues that women experience. I have traveled my path through childhood trauma to become the expression of my true self, and I continue to learn more every day. With my personal experience and knowledge of psychological theories and therapies, I can help you with your self-discovery and challenges.  This is a lifelong journey, not a race.

My clients live like you do – with a mind that never takes a break. Thoughts running wild during the day and restless dreams at night. Dreams that fill them with longing to explore, to understand, to connect. Their inner self is sending a message, and listening to it leads them to profound empowerment. It's a call for a new beginning – to welcome the real you – the emotional and creative you. Through dream therapy my clients overcome fear and find their calling. They replace anxiety with intuition and trust in themselves. Your dreams can help you reclaim your joyful, imaginative spirit.

Now accepting in person and evening appointments: You have always felt capable but now it is hard to feel motivated. You can't find the energy to care anymore but deep down you really care. You want to get over this. It feels like you are under the weight of a lot of pressure and stress. You no longer feel like the strong person you once saw yourself as. You have always been the person others lean on, which makes it hard to ask for help. You are trying to survive. Managing the emotions and inner criticism can be exhausting.

Life can be challenging and hectic. The day-to-day activities that you engage in often creates a level of stress in which you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed, leading to burn out. The demands and obligations of work, school, and home can overshadow your needs to care for yourself and accomplish your goals. The emotional impact of not being where you want to be in life can determine how you perceive yourself, your outlook on life, and your relationships. You may even feel like that what you desire is unobtainable due to current circumstances and past experiences. You are not alone in how you feel. There is hope.

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.
