I am a LCSW who works with individuals, couples and families to promote more peaceful and fulfilling relationships. I work primarily from a family systems perspective which looks at how family relationships inform the way we view ourselves and relate to others. Reconnecting with each other and learning to communicate more effectively is an integral part of therapy. However, at times, reconnecting with family may not be possible or healthly. I help those individuals accept and grieve the loss they are experiencing and to create their own sense of family through developing and strengthening friendships and connecting to environmental resources.

Many people who initially come to see me do so because they suffer from immediate practical life-problems like depression, anxiety, psychosomatic symptoms, relationship problems, a philosophical or spiritual crisis; in other words specific problems, conflicts and issues that have made it difficult to live their lives with conscious awareness and integrity.

The prerequisite to true freedom is to decide that you do not want to suffer anymore. You must decide that you want to enjoy your life and that there is no reason for stress, inner pain, or fear. Every day we bear a burden that we should not be bearing. We fear that we are not good enough or that we will fail. We experience insecurity, anxiety, and self-consciousness. All of these things burden us tremendously and deplete our energy.

I work best with motivated individuals who will work with me and be courageous enough to be honest about their thoughts, feelings, and fears. My clients are expected to do assignments, readings, and offer feedback. I thoroughly enjoy seeing the progress that a child or an adult can make through self discovery that counseling offers. Ultimately we are the masters of our own lives, and it is by allowing the individual to unlock his or her own capabilities and potential, that the therapist is truly a success.

I always say that everyone should attend therapy at least once in their life. Therapy is a special experience where you can share your struggles and connect with someone who empowers you to find your balance. I know how difficult it can be to find the right therapist to work with. For each client, I work diligently to create a personal, comforting, safe space where you can feel free to open up and express yourself without fear of judgment.

Do you seek "happiness", but feel that happiness itself is not enough? Often, “happiness” is the stated goal. Joy, grace, and peace can carry us more securely through "unhappy” (even traumatic) seasons. Do you feel alone? Are you looking for help with creating boundaries, focusing on what is within your control, responding as opposed to reacting, being content as opposed to complacent, or affording grace- for yourself or others? Do you feel like you "get in your own way"? You are not alone. I encourage my clients to create their own weekly goals - in line with their initial stated goals. I will help you celebrate each step.

Depression, overwhelming stress, racing thoughts, past experiences, relationships, existential questions- whatever keeps you up at night or keeps you in bed all day- it’s human, and sometimes it is so hard to be human. Turning toward our pain and taking a step toward health and healing takes tremendous courage. My approach to therapy is to honor this courageous step you are taking and walk alongside you.

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.
