Have you been having a harder time lately? Are you experiencing a new life transition, like moving to New York or New Jersey and you’re not as happy as you had hoped? Or possibly you are looking to make a change in your relationships, work, or daily routine but you’re feeling stuck and unmotivated. Regardless of the specific challenge that has brought you to start therapy, you do not have to go through this experience alone.

You want to appear successful and put-together, but deep down, you're struggling to feel authentic and fulfilled in your high-pressure life. You may be exhausted from maintaining a perfect facade, feeling like an imposter in your own life, or yearning for deeper connections. Perhaps you can't remember when you truly let your guard down. But one thing is certain: you're ready for a change. You're ready to align your inner world with your outer success. You're ready to feel genuinely confident, not just competent. Most importantly, you're ready to embrace your authentic self and find fulfillment beyond achievements.

Therapy with me offers a reflective space that invites you to explore and get to know aspects of yourself that are hard to reach when alone. Within an empathic and interactive psychotherapy relationship, we explore internal and external spheres of experience including feelings, thoughts, actions, and inactions. This process paves the road for a more meaningful life and greater self-understanding, which helps one break out of harmful patterns. Along the way, we also identify and utilize coping skills that will help you to reduce depression, anxiety and other troubling symptoms.

Whether working with couples, adolescents, families, or adult individuals, I see the therapy room as a place for clients to discuss the parts of themselves and their lives that they can’t talk about anywhere else. My approach is open, playful, and creative. As we work together to identify and address the parts within yourself that may be anxious, overly protective, or deeply wounded, you will be better able to be the wisest, most mature version of yourself.

I believe that exploring our past experiences and the ways we carry patterns of relating to people throughout our lives is the bedrock of therapeutic change, but that at times, it is important to focus on here and now skills in order to deal with acute crises.

Beginning therapy can be scary, intimidating, and stressful, but can also make a big difference in your life. There are times we feel stuck, lost, confused, angry, or hurt. Periods when relationships feel like they’re falling apart, life feels aimless, or we feel unhappy and can’t quite pinpoint why. For some this is new, while for others it can be a lifelong struggle. Therapy provides a safe space for processing thoughts and feelings, for exploring the past and its influence over the present, and for risking change. Therapy can help you cope with challenges and make sense of what has happened so you can gather the skills to grow.

There's a therapeutic movement going on that questions the way our culture pathologizes the self. I believe that what gets diagnosed as mental illness is often understood better as an adaptation to adversity that's no longer helpful.

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.
