Perhaps you knew what you wanted life to be, but now dreaming of something better is a foreign idea. You’ve been successful yet still feel unfulfilled. Most people who start therapy feel stuck repeating the same painful patterns. Maybe you know you’d be happier if you made changes but you don't have the time. Your life isn't really all that bad and you think you should be grateful for all you have. Instead you're just a tad disgusted with yourself. On top of that, if you're in a relationship, you just want out of it and into something new, but the idea of hurting your partner in the process keeps you from doing something different.

My goal in psychotherapy is to establish a genuine relationship with my clients in order to foster emotional growth and change. We participate in an empathetic collaboration to address emotional and/or behavioral struggles with sensitivity to strengths and limitations. As my clients gain insights into their lives, I encourage them to consider taking actions to affect change. They thereby gain self confidence and a sense of well-being that empower them to reach their goals. In our exchanges we discuss the emotional, cultural, and social conditions that they face, in order to promote greater self-awareness.

I feel passionate about helping people to work through what they feel is holding them back from being their most authentic selves. I freely utilize Yogic breathwork & movement in a session to help center and bring a person into and feel their body. Then the true work of healing and freeing can begin to happen. I see any addiction as merely an indicator of something else that needs some attention and healing. When the body is allowed to release the trauma, then the desire for other 'medicines' is diminished. And when we can aid our nervous system in this way, day by day, our mind and emotions also begin to heal. Freedom.

Are you transitioning and experiencing a change of life, maybe a change in identity? Perhaps what used to be meaningful to you, isn't anymore, and you're in an existential quandary. People who lead meaningful lives ask themselves tough questions in order to find authenticity. Perhaps you have an erotic concern? This can happen at any age. We all have to learn to cope with the circumstances we find ourselves in, and that's been a common thread in the work I do.

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.
