As a psychotherapist, I provide a safe environment for reflection where discovering and exploring fixed patterns that hinder you from realizing goals can lead to awareness. We all have parts of ourselves that we do not understand and feel that we cannot change, often leaving us feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Telling your story and gaining deeper understanding of yourself can have transforming effects on your life. I work with patients facing problems in love, work, family, school, issues with self-esteem, identity, and trauma. My analytic training makes me a skilled and empathic listener, helping to identify themes that lead to insights and more choices.

Therapy might be a way for you to travel to yourself. It might provide you with new eyes for looking at an old image. And with the possible feeling that there is a way to let your guard down, untie your knots, and create new patterns. You might also find freedom in the cultivation of a wider and more balanced scale of emotions that includes joy, ire, sadness, rapture, and many more. Therapy might also show you that in addition to enduring life, you might also be fully alive.

You're a woman who wants to understand herself better: how you're showing up in relationships, who "you" are outside of your responsibilities, and what gets in the way of feeling more connected within yourself and with others. Maybe you’ve experienced a loss or significant transition in life, or maybe negative self-talk or relationship struggles are wearing you down. You know life doesn’t have to feel like this, but there is so much on your shoulders these days—it hasn't felt possible to find the time, space, and skills you need to create change. But now you’re ready to lean in, with curiosity and courage, to what has held you back.

Everyone has their own unique and idiosyncratic means of getting in their own way whether or not they are aware of it. Unfortunately, we are also attached to these ways of hindering ourselves. This is perhaps at the source of most experiences of suffering and can manifest in various symptoms such as anxiety, depression, anger, inhibitions and relationship or sexual issues.

Therapy can be challenging - it takes courage to look directly at parts of ourselves that we feel ashamed of. Going through this process with someone who gets you can be transformative. I'm deeply curious about how you see the world and work to create an environment where you can be, too. Maybe you have learned to cope with feelings in ways that are hurting you or your relationships. Maybe you're struggling with a tendency to isolate or hurt yourself, with self-hatred, with long-term patterns that you feel hopeless about. Every person has a unique ability to change & grow. The goal of therapy is to remove obstacles to your growth.

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.
