It can be challenging to go through the stages of therapy, but the goal is that you leave the session exhaling with a smile that you took a step towards supporting yourself, that you made yourself a priority, and are on your way to tackling life’s stressors. We can work together to face the struggles that brought you to therapy and find solutions that help you feel inspired and empowered. I have spent much time doing crisis intervention and trauma therapy work. I am also passionate about working with grief/bereavement clients and have recently developed an interest in working with self-esteem building in client sessions.

It can be difficult to manage the pressures of being an adult trying navigate the world; to determine the next career move, whether your relationship is going where you need it to, or if you are on the path you imagined for yourself.

You want to find a way to understand these repeated patterns of feeling "stuck" or feeling "not enough", while understanding what it is you truly want and who you truly are. I can help. My clients are motivated to explore their understanding of self and the world around them.

I believe that change is possible for anyone, and it is never too late. I also believe that you have the answers, and it is my job to be a mirror for you and help you find the answers within you.

The therapeutic process should be natural and flowing. I am a thoughtful listener, energetic, and meaningful interaction is central in my method of treatment. Reducing anxiety, depression and difficulties in relationships and careers are a priority in my work as a therapist. In my experience, it is the nature of relationships and careers to become a crisis over time. Although the crisis leads to conflicts and is therefore anxiety producing, it is also an opportunity to explore experiences to achieve personal insight, personal transformation and career improvement.

There are many uncertainties and transitions in life that overtime can be unsettling, lonely, heavy, and profound. I believe that connection and community can help us navigate back to ourselves, our power, and our ability to evolve. Maybe we have some goals and clarity; maybe we don’t yet. Many times we need someone to hear us out with patience, authenticity, and encouragement. I aim to hold a steady place for individuals and couples, where we can explore these patterns, experiences, relationships, and beliefs with compassion and vulnerability. Then when you're ready we can take the risk of greeting change and creating momentum.

When a child needs help, I focus on the family. With Hashem's help, family therapy can change the atmosphere in a home from heavy to light, and from overwhelmed to energized. When parents become kind and united leaders, children can relax and be children. Because every family has its own culture, I ask for an outline of the family system, which leads to ideas that can work within the specific family. I focus on strengthening the parents' authority, and creating healthier, more appropriate roles for each family member.

Unprocessed childhood neglect, abuse, witnessing of traumatic events or recent adult interpersonal violence can weigh on us heavily. To reconnect with our natural potential and remember that our ancestors not only passed their trauma on to us but also their victory, I bring a culturally aware approach that incorporates the intersection of trans-generational trauma, gender, and spirituality to healing the issues that cause us anxiety, pain, discomfort and make it difficult to achieve our goals or feel at peace.

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.
