Talking does help! The main focus of my therapeutic practice has been to encourage people to talk openly about themselves in a comfortable and accepting space. Those who have seriously accepted this invitation have benefited from their self-discoveries, and the subsequent personal adjustments and changes that have come about. Personal growth is not easily achieved or sustained, but it is necessary for nurturing a fulfilled life!

Your teen is going through a difficult time in their life. Teenage years are filled with self doubt, questioning identity, anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, relationship problems, family conflict, and school difficulties. A lot of teens keep their feelings and issues inside. It is normal for them to start to share less with their parents. Therapy can help your teen to open up to a professional about the issues they are experiencing and to process their feelings better so that they can feel their best. As a teen therapist, I build rapport rapidly with teens and they enjoy having a safe place to talk about their problems.

Therapy enables you to live more fully, with increased awareness and self-acceptance. However, it requires that you trust someone to travel with you to difficult places you might otherwise avoid. Whether you are experiencing a difficult life transition, wrestling with a problematic pattern, or wish to have a better relationship with yourself or others, it is important to feel that you are working with someone attuned to your needs and knowledgeable about how to handle them.

I view health as a state that is achieved through active involvement on the part of each individual in acknowledging,accepting and taking responsibility for their physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs. My style is compassionate, collaborative, creative, practical, and empowering. The goal is a greater ability to navigate life's difficulties (including fear, anxiety, depression, and trauma), a deeper more enlivened life, the capacity for richer more meaningful relationships with self and others, and the ability to access and to trust the flow of one's own life journey. A nonjudgmental, accepting, mindful attitude is key to this process.

Despite your success on paper, you are constantly doubting yourself. You have difficulty letting go of things and compromising with others. It seems that you need more knowledge than is necessary and that everything has to be perfect at all times. There is a constant need to prove yourself to “feel good enough” but that "good enough" never happens. You tend to blame yourself in relationships, wondering if you "should've" felt that way or if you "could've" handled a situation differently. The mental load you carry constantly causes you to feel stressed and overwhelmed.

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.
