I don’t like stating what disorders I treat. Diagnoses are limiting. I work with people, and people are complicated. Sure, you have symptoms that bother you, or you wouldn’t be looking at therapists on this site. But your symptoms vary, and you may not be clear about their origins or why they persist.

If you are reading this profile you've likely made the brave decision to seek help, which is to be applauded. I am a psychotherapist with 12 years' experience in psychiatric crisis management and clinical psychotherapy. As a practitioner I believe it is important to explore how family of origin issues inform an individual of their self-worth, belongingness in the world and the ability to develop healthy relationships with others. Once we've discovered where the core of a false narrative was created, we can begin to develop alternative ways of thinking and feeling.

Please email for a quicker response. Therapy is a collaborative endeavor that requires a deep sense of safety if clients are to risk creating the change they long for. I believe it is very important to cultivate a secure relationship. I use evidence-based therapies and use an eclectic blend of person-centered approaches to meet the needs of each individual. My goal is to meet each client where they are at, help them identify their innate assets and apply them to the areas of their lives where they are struggling. I believe that our mental and emotional health is just as important as our physical health.

Anxiety, depression and trauma can be treated holistically. Often, people feel like they have different parts of themselves inside that are pulling in different directions. It can be challenging to sort through it all alone. If you are feeling depleted, tired, confused, or overwhelmed, a good therapist can help you slow down and put the pieces together. If you are feeling reactive and on edge or feeling like running away, or just plain shut down, good therapy can help you restore connection with yourself and others. And if you are feeling like traditional talk therapy is not enough, then you have definitely come to the right place!

Perhaps you have the things you always thought would bring you happiness, such as family, friends, and a good job, but you still feel like something is missing; that you are not as happy as you “should be.” Life can be challenging at times, resulting in feelings of sadness, anxiety, and stress. We can start to feel like we have lost control of our lives, or that we do not have the power to make positive changes. Genuine happiness feels out of reach, leaving us with a sense of emptiness or lack of social connection. Tackling these issues can be scary, leaving us feeling vulnerable and exposed.

If you're feeling troubled – whether in the long term or in a crisis – you may need outside help. Psychodynamic therapy (PDT) may offer the help you need. In PDT as I practice it, I engage interactively with my patients to help them understand what troubles them in the larger context of who they are as individuals. As a patient you can share your thoughts and feelings with me in complete confidence, without holding anything back. I do my best to enter into your experience from your point of view, bearing in mind that the sources of what troubles us can lie beneath the surface, outside of our consciousness or hidden in the past.

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.
