Maybe you have been told you are morbidly obese and that you need to lose weight, but you don't know where to start or what to do. Maybe you have lived through some very difficult life experiences that have resulted in your making choices that are no longer serving you. Maybe you're a married couple, struggling with communicating effectively or enjoying each other sexually. Maybe you are getting older and feeling betrayed by your body. You want to feel better mentally, physically and spiritually, make better choices, resolve unaddressed stuff and make positive change happen.

Have you or your child been feeling stuck? Have you started to question who you are and what it will take for your circumstances to change? Have difficult memories from the past started to creep back into your mind? Has the voice of outsiders and social media started to make you question your success? Maybe you're in the midst of a major life transition. Holding these thoughts inside while balancing daily tasks can be stressful. Being able to express yourself in a safe space can make all the difference while you begin to view yourself and your circumstances with new lenses.

I am Natasha Louder and not everyone has had access to mental health care. I am a firm believer that we can all use therapy as some point in our lives. No one should have to " just get through" those times and feel alone. Just in living, you may experience racism, racial trauma and stress. We all want the answer to the questions, "Is this normal?", "Why is every day a struggle?" or "Was that a racist comment?" You want to be seen. You want to figure out if you will ever feel good about your life, your loves or career choices.

Are you pregnant or recently had a baby? Perhaps you have toddlers running around and feel frazzled most of the time? Do you feel depressed, stressed, and overwhelmed? Would it be nice to talk with someone without feeling judged? It is perfectly normal to have these thoughts and feelings, especially after birthing a baby. We are taught that this is supposed to be the "happiest time of your life", but the truth is that it can be a very challenging time that can catch us off guard. While postpartum adjustment can be hard and scary, you don't have to go it alone.

A person's natural tendency is to gravitate toward health and wholeness. Sometimes when trying to move toward goals and the most authentic expression of self, we get stuck by internal or external barriers. I enjoy working with clients who are willing to step into vulnerability even when it's scary and who are open to exploring creative approaches to healing. With curiosity, you can discover meaning within emotional pain and grow beyond limits you might have internalized.

Many of our clients look good on the outside, yet feel mildly miserable on the inside. Pain is motivating and when clients are hurting, they call to schedule an appointment. It takes more than intellect to change behavior. Most of our clients are intelligent and know what they "should" do, yet struggle to take action. Our team works with people (or partners) who struggle with substances and behavioral medicators such as alcohol, porn, overeating and codependency. We treat individuals, couples and families that need help with addiction, mental illness, infidelity or simply feeling stuck. It is a relief to not have to do it alone.

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.
