Challenges, adversity, and conflict are truths in this life. What I've come to believe is that through tragedy we might find meaning, just as through a strenuous hike we might find ourselves in an invigorating place with a beautiful view. I believe in the strength and resilience inherent within everyone, and I invite you to embark on this path of healing so that you may find empowerment. Every day we have the choice to begin again, and to pivot toward what we value.

As you recognize the lack of love you give yourself, you’re starting to see how much you need it. You’ve been putting yourself last for so long that you’re yearning to find a place where you truly belong. You’re tired of basing your choices on other people’s opinions and you’re ready to break through and claim your purpose. You believed your life would have meaning. That you would feel accomplished and successful in all aspects. You knew you’d face adversity, but you honestly believed that you could overcome anything. But, when you look at your life today, you feel defeated, used, and insignificant. You’re struggling to measure.

Your friends and families would describe you as "Endlessly Blue." You're tired of people asking: "What's wrong with you? Why are you always in a funk?" It would be easier if everybody left you alone. Truthfully, it hurts that no one understands. And sometimes you need help understanding yourself. Nothing holds your interest. Your motivation is gone... the loneliness and exhaustion are pushing you over the edge. And sometimes, thoughts of death creep into your mind when it gets bad enough. It's getting harder to move with this darkness around. You don't know what else to do, and you're struggling to get through the day.

One thing I always keep in mind is that all of my clients are people. Every person has a right to their feelings and to understand they are important and valuable. Learning how to communicate their thoughts, feelings, and needs is one way to bolster those feelings of value within themselves. No matter what they are struggling with or challenges they are facing, be it anxiety, depression, and/or relationship issues, there is most certainly a way to manage it. As a clinician I strive to help all of my clients find the tools to manager their struggles and challenges.

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.
