We are a children's psychotherapy program specializing in equine facilitated psychotherapy. We believe that learning to do things differently can be hard - we might as well have fun while we are doing it! Most of our clients have tried more traditional office approaches and have found that they didn't work for them. We believe that children should be given space to play and explore. It is through these experiences that children learn about themselves and the world around them.

I have a passion for helping kids that are struggling to become more successful and happier in their world. I like allowing kids to express in ways that help me to understand their perspectives. I find that better understanding their perspective and method of self expression can help me communicate in ways that the individual child better understands. I love working and playing with kids in ways that allow me to connect with them in a way that feels comfortable.

Significant loss, sadness or anxiety can impact our functioning at any point in our lives. A good therapeutic relationship can offer support and clarity. Emotions can seem overwhelming, but having a safe place to process them can be life-changing. Holding emotions alone can create an internal experience of overwhelm, but a connection with a therapist can lessen the feelings of isolation, anxiety, depression and/or stress.

The people who like to work with me are facing challenges in their work or personal lives including, self-inflicted stress, relationship or peer conflict, and accepting a loss (or multiple losses). They appreciate a cognitive or thinking approach to their challenges and appreciate learning skills that they can use to reduce their distress. They may have sought treatment elsewhere for anxiety or depression, and it's not unusual that the challenges they face are either going home with them or making their way into their work.

Feeling overwhelmed? Maybe you’re sad all the time or your thoughts won’t stop racing. Maybe you’re angry and frustrated by a relationship. Maybe you’ve suffered a loss and don’t feel like your “normal” self.

I find that a client is best served when they are listened to, validated, but also challenged to make positive change. That is why I take a cognitive behavioral approach to the counseling I do. Whether the client is a child or adult we all have the ability to learn from the past and make different choices for the future.

The quality of the therapeutic alliance is a well-established factor for successful therapy outcomes. Part of what creates a strong therapeutic alliance is conveying to another human being that every part of that whole person is important and worthy; every part of them. Part of what builds a strong therapeutic alliance is showing the person that you can tolerate and hold their pain and suffering. I've worked extensively with individuals experiencing history of trauma, homelessness, chronic mental illness, domestic, violence, and substance abuse. I take a heartfelt and impassioned approach to the clinical work I do.

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.
