I have extensive experience working with individuals who are experiencing crisis as a result of life changes and mood disorders, i.e. depression, anxiety and loss. My goal is to treat individuals, couples and parents in a supportive environment where personal responsibility and active decision making are encouraged. I am also a Divorce Mediator and Certified Grief Recovery Therapist. I believe my experience in these areas also contribute to the knowledge base I have regarding life transitions.

I am old enough to know that life does not always lend itself to simplistic answers. At various periods we all find ourselves in difficult circumstances that feel overwhelming, sometimes related to life changing tragedies like death, divorce, new medical diagnosis like cancer, job loss, or catastrophic injury. In these situations your life changes in an instant. There is an avalanche of distressing emotions and life no longer feels solid or stable. As a therapist who has experienced some serious, life changing tragedies, I understand those feelings and am specifically trained in grief and trauma.

My desire as your counselor is to come alongside you and provide the support you need as you gain a deeper understanding of who you are, what core desires you have, and what brought you here. Support looks different for each individual, which is why I allow clients to share their stories at their own pace in a safe atmosphere while equipping them with tools to help manage life stressors. I work with adolescents and adult women who are experiencing difficulty, whether that be anxiety, depression, life transitions, prenatal/postpartum stress, family conflict, or relationship issues.

It’s no secret that life can be messy and I believe that you can either learn from it, laugh about it, or cry about it– all of which are appropriate responses depending on the situation. I find importance in connecting behavioral and cognitive patterns to past experiences, and learning how to move forward and create the future you envision. I don’t shy away from the hard or messy, so you may find that I too show up authentically to assist with verbalizing and exploring the intensity of the human experience.

Your child has been having a hard time with “big feelings” and “big behaviors”. You have spent hours searching to find ways to help your young child have less intense meltdowns and tantrums, or to help your grade schooler better handle transitions or unexpected change, or to help your tween worry less about “adult things” and things they can’t control. It has been extremely difficult seeing your child struggle and you really wish you could just make it all stop, but you’re out of ideas. I know that the process of finding a counselor for your child can be exhausting and intimidating, but you don’t have to walk this journey alone.

My role is to help you and support you in your journey as parents and caregivers through challenging times and transitions.

You are scared and wondering how that behavior got so out of hand. You get stressed and then turn to sexualized behaviors to help you not feel so bad - if only for a couple of minutes. You feel like an imposter with your partner and they are scared and freaked out because you accidentally didn't sign out of your email account. And now they know what you've been up to. But they don't know that what they found is only the tip of the iceberg. Both of you are anxious, depressed, and fearful but arguments, threats, and despair hang between you. Is it possible to get through this pain without losing your mind? Yes, it is.

Are you struggling with how to navigate through the highs and lows of life? Struggling to find a calming balance and stronger mind-body connection? Trying to "fit in" and feeling isolated? Enduring difficult times often removes us from a sense of who we are or want to be. Our identities get lost as we transition through developmental stages and relationships come and go. I have a passion for supporting teens and young adults dealing with the complexities of life transitions, interpersonal effectiveness, unresolved trauma, depression, anxiety and emotion regulation.

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.
