At some point, we have all felt sad, anxious, lonely, or angry. But, sometimes, we get locked into these emotions, and it begins to feel like our life is out of control. My goal is to help you get back onto the path of living a life that you value. While I am trained in the evidence-based practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, my therapeutic approach is collaborative. If you don't feel comfortable, then none of this will work. Our working relationship is so important and something that I highly value.

Are you concerned about your teenager? Do they seem disinterested, easily irritated, angry most (or all) of the time, negative about themself or life in general? Maybe they’re struggling in school, unwilling to leave home, stressed out, or not taking care of themself the way they used to. Perhaps they have goals for the future, but just don’t seem to care about them anymore. As their parent, you've tried to talk, but only get shut out, and now things seem like they are getting worse. They need help, and you want to find someone who is objective, understands today's younger generation, and can help get them back on track.

Therapy is a helpful process to cope with stressors including major life transitions, relationship issues, grief and loss, and traumatic experiences. I believe the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship between the clinician and the client including the provision of a safe, supportive environment in which to explore innermost thoughts and feelings. My approach is collaborative with a belief that my clients and I are working together as a team to enrich the client's life by raising awareness, identifying feelings, and improving coping skills ultimately to reduce symptoms and change undesired behavioral patterns.

Hundreds of research studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)in working with anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, anger management and other psychological issues. As CBT has proven itself so beneficial, many therapists employ some of its techniques. But in order to have the best possible outcome with this form of psychotherapy, it is important to find a therapist who has been formally trained and certified in CBT.

We all need someone in our lives that is source of support and encourages us to grow. Therapy is about our ability to examine current life circumstances and figure out, not only how to handle the situations, but also how to grow from them. Therapy does not have to be a lifelong committment, however improving ourselves can be. Using a solution focused framework, we will work together to identify strategies that work for you to use long after our time together. My experience is very diverse and I have worked with all age groups, including couples and families.

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.
