I work with adolescents and adults on a wide range of challenges from general counseling and adjustment issues (feeling "stuck") to more clinical issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma and sexual issues. I focus on LGBT clients, particularly in the area of transgender identity, but have a diverse client base overall. I have experience working with clients that have issues related to polyamory, the kink community, and navigating these issues within relationships. I also have interns and supervisees that can see sliding scale clients from various populations.

Therapy is a process and I know it takes a lot of courage to seek it out. I believe that all of us have in us the right tools to change our lives and achieve our goals. Sometimes, all it takes is a little guidance and support from someone who might have a different perspective. As a licensed clinical social worker, I provide expert services working with adults and adolescents to strengthen their ability to overcome stress, grief and loss, anxiety and depression using specific interventions like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, coaching, and mindfulness training.

People may seek out therapy because they feel anxious, sad, overwhelmed, unable to identify and articulate their wants and needs, or simply because they want to better understand themselves and live more intentionally. Whatever your reasons for exploring therapy may be, you are likely curious about your own potential for growth and change. I have tremendous respect for all of those I work with for showing up for themselves to explore this potential that we all possess.

I started Full Focus Therapy to help LGBTQ+ adults find clarity to build full and satisfying lives. As a queer therapist I know it's hard to see a clear way out when you're getting overwhelmed with anxiety and shutting down, grappling with spiraling thoughts, or wrestling with shame or self-hatred. When hopelessness or isolation has its claws in you, building a life that is satisfying to you can seem impossible. That's work we can do together. We collaborate on goals like constructing boundaries or deepening relationships, so that you can find fulfillment on your own terms.

My ideal client is a person who may have challenges and needs a gentle, safe environment to heal. They want to be heard, and want to have an opportunity to develop their own "voice" where there is unconditional positive regard. Most importantly as they get better they begin to think of developing a life vision based on their highest values! The basic roadmap is: STABILIZE (reduce symptoms and increase functioning) RESOURCE STRENGTHENING (develop tools to promote wellness) ACTUALIZE (Robust and abundant life vision; what do I want to be? do? and have? in all 7 areas of 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.
