As a therapist I believe that you are capable of solving your own problems, however sometimes we need a guiding light along the way. I want to be able to empower you to empower yourself. I am here to help you find the answers and solutions that are right for you and your life. Sometimes we lose sight of what we want out of life, and that is where I come in. I am here to be a non-judgmental good listener, and a mirror for reflecting as well as a place of unconditional positive regard. Whatever you may be facing in your life, you should not have to do it alone.

I've worked in clinical social work for nearly 30 years. I have a perspective that understands anxiety issues, especially during life transitions. However, I recognize the resilience that allows each of us to survive and thrive. I believe that effective therapy bridges the gap between anxiety and that resilience.My experiences in domestic violence, in hospitals with seriously ill patients, with adolescents and their families in drug and alcohol treatment centers, and ten years as a school social worker in an affluent suburb have afforded me the opportunity to assist clients through challenges we face.

Hello there, I'm Jacqueline. I specialize in working with adults and adolescents living with chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. Your pain is real, and chronic pain is an epidemic that leaves patients frustrated with limited treatment options. The latest science in pain relief psychology shows that we can do better by significantly reducing or eliminating chronic pain through scientific mindbody modalities. This integrative approach also lends itself well to the treatment of anxiety, depression, and stress-related conditions.

You live in a quiet state of desperation. On paper your life looks really good. Others see you and think you have everything going for you. They want to be like you and think their life would be easier if they were. You are outgoing and wear a smile. But they don’t understand what they can’t see. They don’t see you. They don’t see the pain that you feel. You know that other people won’t understand. You learned a long time ago to hide it. Everyday you wake up and put on a mask. You push yourself harder to accomplish more. Yet you know that none of it will work.

Kate brings a wealth of experience and commitment to facilitate healing through trauma-informed care. Her professional journey is rooted in the belief that true well-being extends beyond traditional therapeutic modalities, emphasizing a holistic and integrative approach. One distinctive aspect of Kate’s therapeutic approach is the integration of somatic, body-based interventions. These interventions assist clients in learning how to connect their feelings to the sensations they experience in their bodies. Somatic therapies develop stronger self-awareness and coping skills to manage the challenges that come with life.

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.
