If you were a drop of water and you dropped into the ocean it would cause a ripple effect. Or, if you dropped onto land the surface would rearrange. This is what we do every day. We connect and interact with each other causing changes. We are not alone on this planet. We have purpose. We might think we are islands but an island is still connected to the main land, the connection is just covered by a mass of water. Understanding we are not alone creates hope, hope empowers, and power fuels transformation.

Hi, I’m Tim. I’m so glad you’re here. I work with people exclusively using teletherapy. If you are open to that, then let’s work collaboratively to address obstacles impeding your journey toward a fulfilling life. In the realm of human existence and relationships, we encounter both challenges and opportunities for growth. By exploring these complexities and delving into our inner selves through the wisdom gained from contemplative analysis (mindfulness), we can better understand and resolve conflicts, mend broken connections, and heal from past traumas.

I firmly believe that healing comes from a place of deep understanding and insight. I approach counseling from a strengths-based and person-centered framework, meaning I believe that clients already possess the resources necessary to heal and grow, they have just yet to identify them. I strive to be a sounding board for my clients to assist them in building upon their strengths, gain confidence, and improve their overall well-being. I see and value the uniqueness of each person and therefore draw from several different therapeutic modalities to tailor my therapeutic approach to the individual needs of my client.

The most helpful thing I can do is guide you to your own wisdom and help you trust your inner-voice as the highest authority. I believe anyone who steps into a therapeutic space exhibits strength and courage, and is taking responsibility over their life. We all have times where it is beneficial to talk with someone who isn't part of our daily life, who doesn't judge and where we can feel safe and supported. I am warm, direct and interactive. I use both humor and empathy to connect and help clients grow, change and live the lives they want. I believe there is no limit to our ability to change and evolve throughout our lifetime.

Knowing where to begin when seeking help with our personal struggles is, for most, a challenge in itself. Finding comfort in the familiarity of solitude and unhealthy means of managing our struggles is what we become accustomed to and feel a sense of security. Change and the uncertainty that creates, is where belief comes into play. Belief that life can be different, and that we ourselves are capable of taking the steps to change. I believe in individuals being their own greatest advocate and strive to create a safe space for them to navigate the challenges that have clouded their path.

Confronting & coping with challenges can be extremely difficult in this culture filled with pretension. You ever feel like you aren’t allowed to hurt, experience weakness or failure? Feeling trapped & stagnated by your fear? Worried & stressed out? Your confidence seems non-existent? Maybe, you're feeling defeated & overcome by what seems like unending pain. You’re not alone. I have been there too. One great thing about hurt, weakness & failure is that they are a part of the human experience & they can be limited. Instead of allowing challenges to paralyze your life, what if you could heal, grow & capitalize on them?

Anxiety and depression can be suffocating and often restrict you from engaging in life in the ways you want to. They are quite successful at creating a cycle of disappointment and desperation that convince you you’re alone and helpless. While that inner voice of yours may be wreaking havoc and demanding that you rethink that situation or decision for the umpteenth time, let me remind you that you are not broken nor are you alone. Everyone has an inherent ability to achieve personal growth and overcome the ravages of anxiety — we just need some guidance at times.

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.
