You typically seek out therapy when feeling confusion, despair, loss, conflict, or other negative thoughts and emotions. I see my job as a facilitator. I set a slow and steady agenda where you can do the work to become less confused, better aware, and more comfortable to face the issues with which you struggle. Life (good and bad) continues once our hour session is done. My goal is that you can learn to manage life when not with me in session.

So many people are coping with diverse issues now, it’s no longer “just” depression and anxiety. These feelings are complicated and exacerbated by health, employment, family and sexuality concerns. Traumas great and small can arise and all are worthy of therapeutic support.

Maybe you struggle with depression, anxiety, feelings of unhappiness or unfulfillment. Sometimes life’s adversities take the best of us, and leave us lost, feeling numb or trapped in a cycle of self sabotaging behaviors that perpetuate our suffering. Whether it is the sudden rupture of a relationship, abuse, a traumatic loss, a divorce, abandonment, or work related stressors, I view these experiences as opportunities to grow into a better version of the self. I commend you for being brave and contemplating the thought of a better present, leaving past hurt behind, and embracing healing with therapy.

I often hear from clients that they appreciate how radically nonjudgmental I am in our work. I believe that everyone does the best that they are able to, with what they know. I am an active therapist, who provides praise and positive feedback often, but I also hold clients accountable in an effort to assist them in reaching their goals. Clients report that they feel as if they make progress in each session, due to our focus on creating and attaining small and realistic goals. My practice also focuses on supporting parents of adult children with eating disorders, and providing level of care and treatment placement consultations.

Navigating life can be challenging, especially when we are dealing with emotional pain, relationship problems or addiction. At times the assistance of a therapist is needed to help regain stability. Each individual has the ability to make healthy changes to address areas they find of concern. Dealing with these life challenges on your own can be very difficult. Therapy seeks to assist us in recapturing the experience and feelings of pleasure, freedom, connection, and choice. You may believe you have tried everything, perhaps you have lost hope or don't know where to get the help you need.

Imagine what life would be like if you stopped apologizing, stopped trying to fix everything for everyone and instead started putting yourself first. Would you be happier? Feel more like the person you're meant to be? Would you make different decisions that benefitted YOU? Or finally just get some sleep at night? I get it! When you're the one putting everyone else first, you feel run down, cranky and resentful. The idea of saying "NO" is terrifying but exciting. But hey - it's not our job to do a delicate dance to keep everyone happy. You are not selfish for putting yourself first.

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.
