Welcome! Taking the first step is always difficult, and I am so glad you are here. Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you, doesn't mean you can, should, or need to do it alone. Everyone is their own person with a different perspective of the world. I will work from various approaches to make your journey one-of-a-kind and meaningful to you. I truly want anyone I work with to become the best version of themselves.

I specialize in work with the LGBTQ+, consensually non-monogamous, and kink/BDSM communities. Are you worried that most therapists will not truly understand you or that you will have to censor yourself in therapy because of your sexual and/or gender minority status? I had these same concerns and they motivated me to become a psychotherapist who could help others like me. We will work together in a safe and relaxing environment to discover and actualize the solutions you need in order to live a more fulfilling life.

You may find yourself feeling "stuck" in your current experience, repeating patterns that no longer serve you, and are unsure of how to get out of the cycle.  You may be new to therapy, and unsure of what you would even talk about, but have a sense that you are impacted by past events in your life that you haven't fully addressed.  Or, you may be arriving here after years of therapy, frustrated with a lack of progress with previous treatment that, while perhaps helpful, did not seem to address some of your core issues.  Regardless of your history, or how long you've been struggling, meaningful change and growth is possible.

Life can appear stressfull, anxiety provoking or depressing, and sometimes overwhelming. Sometimes we need to find additional coping because what we are doing presently, may not be enough.

Coping with depression, anxiety, addiction, or even just life stressors can at times feel overwhelming. It's like you are stuck in a cycle of pain and anguish, and your best efforts to deal with it end up making things worse. Maybe you have reached out to friends and family for help, and have been met with either criticism or well-intentioned, but unhelpful advice. You might have even read a self-help book or two, and struggled to use what you've learned for more than a couple weeks. Sometimes, even the efforts to change seem so difficult that you'll give up, convinced things will never get better. There is a better way.

We are all more alike than we are different. We grow into ourselves as a result of our relationships and our experiences. We want to live our best lives with a sense of meaning, purpose and belonging. Yet, for many, the challenges of everyday life; work, school, family, relationships, decisions about what to do or what direction to take, feel overwhelming and unmanageable. Therapy is a collaborative process; a journey toward increased understanding and insight.

The decision to seek counseling can be a difficult one for many people, and choosing a therapist can be a daunting task. The client and therapist partnership must "work" in order for it to succeed. There must be a connection, an atmosphere of respect, support, trust, and caring - a dedication to the process by both parties. In this way, the search for understanding can bring insight, healing, growth, positive change, and a greater potential for happiness. We never know where within an individual's experience may lie the key to a breakthrough. It's a journey to well being that can begin right now.

I’m Maggie Panageas, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience providing therapy to teens and adults. I specialize helping people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, gender identity, and feelings of loneliness. Sometimes life circumstances, such as a difficult childhood, divorced parents, social isolation, or trauma can leave us feeling alone and without hope. It is the human desire for connection - first to ourselves by learning to accept and love ourselves and second by developing positive and healthy relationship with others that draws many of us to therapy.

Despite having reached the pinnacle of my profession after nearly two decades of practice, it was my own struggle with learning disabilities, dual diagnosis and other medical conditions and issues, that changed my perspective and my life. I came to appreciate a treatment approach which focuses on the here and now; solution focused and goal oriented. I found little solace in traditional therapeutic approaches which focused largely on the past, and went on for months with no real relief nor positive impact on my life or functioning. As such, I strive to help my clients achieve their goals and actualize their dreams.

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.
