I can't say that I have an ideal client, as every client presents with their own unique set of strengths and challenges. I find myself drawn to clients whose lives have been significantly negatively impacted by the systems they belong to. Aiding clients with the tools and resources to work on breaking those generational cycles of trauma or poverty, is one of the most rewarding experiences I can have as a therapist. I truly believe that all clients have the ability to overcome whatever challenges they may be experiencing and achieve their personal goals. My only job is to help them develop the tools to do so.

Are you tired of experiencing the same patterns and want to heal at the root of your symptoms? I specialize in treating trauma, addictions, and self esteem issues - in particularly with women and teenagers. When my clients first come in, their lives are overrun by fear and insecurities. They carry around deep shame about who they are and never feel quite “good enough”. They want to be confident and heal the patterns that are holding them back but do not know where to start.

My ideal client is prepared to initiate changes in their life to promote wellness. They are prepared to process internal and external contributors to their mood, discuss options for improvement, and practice healthier skills that will assist in achieving their personal goals. My ideal client is internally motivated and desires emotional balance from concerns such as anxiety, depression, impaired self-esteem, trauma, and interpersonal conflict. They arrive to treatment with goals in mind, and will actively work to experience relief of distressing symptoms.

It does not matter whether you are 18 or 74 years old, sometimes you feel you do not get noticed. You feel your sensitivity, shyness, anxiety, body image, or other barriers to feeling confident stand in the way. You were the kid in school, that prayed not to get called on and sat in the back. Sometimes you get flashbacks to that age, and still feel that way at work meetings, or on a date. Perhaps insecurities have even gotten so bad that you have avoided dating, meeting new friends, or applying to dream jobs altogether.

Being a Marriage and Family Therapist has given me the opportunity to step outside of the clinical box and work with an array of different mental and behavioral health issues. Having established positive therapeutic relationships with children, individuals, couples, and families has allowed me to gain insight into the daily struggles we all face from time to time. Whether it be anxiety, depression, lack of communication, defiant child-parent dynamics, or phase of life circumstances, I believe there is always an opportunity to make positive changes and start living a life we are truly excited about.

Intention is the starting point for meaningful change and psychotherapy can be the vehicle that can help you get there. Intentions for positive change involve considering both directions, the past and future. Unresolved emotional pain- the proverbial ghosts of the past- have a negative effect on well-being and can manifest in ways that limit your life whether you are suffering from depression and anxiety, addictive illness, or have relationship issues. Developing insight along with learning positive coping skills is a powerful approach to working through core emotional issues and problematic patterns that keep you stuck.

Asking for help is difficult. It can feel frightening to imagine feeling exposed to another, delving into places that are unknown or unwanted. We know what it is like to be brought to your knees. When breathing hurts, and thinking is excruciating. You want help, but at the same time you’re terrified of it. You wonder whether the looking will make the suffering worse. The fear of being vulnerable is overpowering because some part of you is expecting to get hurt.

I feel the ideal client is anyone who is seeking help. With that in mind, we need to remember that accepting help also means being open to change. Treatment needs to be about accepting that the way we have been doing things hasn't been working.

My greatest passion is sitting with individuals as they become enlightened, unburdened & encouraged through the power of talk therapy. I consider it a privilege when anyone shares their life challenges with me in pursuit of support and guidance. External conditions may not change but through counseling, one's perspective and responses can change, leading to improved mental health. Struggles & pressures in life do not have to dictate or determine your identity or emotions but they can be used to produce growth and realization of personal strengths & potentials as we all have the ability to change.

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.

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.

What type of therapist is right for me?

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.

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 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.

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.
