While many of us face similar life challenges, the ways in which these experiences impact us varies greatly. I strive to tailor my therapeutic approach to the needs of each unique individual, couple, and family. I utilize the process of mutual exploration of issues that stem from the past while staying rooted in the present issues that prompted the decision to seek out help. In times of crisis, I shift into a more active role and focus on skills coaching and managing stress. I provide individual therapy to adolescents, adults, and older adults and have experience treating families and couples.

Feeling alone, isolated even when we are in a relationship is very common. We often question ourselves and doubt our ability to create lasting bonds. Some of these common challenges include communication difficulties, infidelity, loss of intimacy, financial pressures, difficulty balancing individual, work, couple and family expectations. We often find it difficult to share our challenges and vulnerabilities.

My patients are people with chronic medical illness and with those suffering from panic attacks, anxiety, depression, trauma, or insomnia. I ask a lot of the people with whom I work. Much of the treatment takes place between sessions, with me acting much as a coach would. Efforts are made to build upon a person's strengths. Why not start building a better life today?

I have been in practice for many years and have been involved in the training of psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers. I have come to believe that each person is unique and that the therapy has to be tailored accordingly. In fact, the art of relating deeply depends on the ability to be able to understand the other' personality in its’ own right and to be able to respond to their individuality with a great deal of acceptance and warmth. The establishment of a good therapeutic relationship is one of the keys to achieving a positive outcome.

As founder of Gentle Growth Therapeutic Services, I provide psychotherapy to adults and adolescents who are seeking to heal from the results of painful childhoods and current losses. It is important to me that people feel both understood by me, and that I am connected to them. We discuss ideas or questions about our work together, if needed. People with whom I work are concerned about stress, family problems, addiction, childhood abuse, divorce or domestic violence. I am most excited and enlivened when I witness people gain new understanding about their situations or find and use new personal strengths.

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.
