I believe that treatment is most effective when the individual seeking therapy is willing to delve not only her/his conscious but unconscious thoughts and feelings. One must be as honest as possible and collaborate with me to determine what is helpful to him and what is not helpful. Psychotherapy is a process, often a long process. A willingness to persevere, in spite of difficult sessions and periods, is critical. Change is hard.

In the words of Carl Jung ""There's no coming to consciousness without pain." Entering psychotherapy is, literally, life saving. Many of us function "in the dark" for years, going through the motions of life without any deeper sense of meaning. This absence of meaning results in an "unlived life" of emotional distress and a variety of symptoms. Many continue to suffer because they fear another sort of pain...that involved with the process of getting to truly know oneself. The difference is that the pain involved with coming to consciousness is simply part of the journey, not the destination.

Improving our lives or relationships, or helping our children do so, may seem like a daunting challenge, yet we know when change is needed. Fortunately, we all have within us a natural capacity for growth and well-being that is best facilitated in the context of relationships that nurture the deepest parts of your being and awaken your strengths. Over the past 20 years I have gained a deep appreciation for the complexity of human experience and the pain and difficulties involved in living with emotional or relational problems in our lives or in our children's lives.

My experience lies in treating adolescents and adults living with eating disorders, body image concerns, anxiety, and trauma. Given that our relationships with others and with ourselves are often at the core of these concerns, we will examine both in our work together. I have also witnessed how gender identity, sexuality, race, and culture can impact self-image, and strive to be an inclusive therapist who can help you explore these connections.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is fundamental to this, and serves as a foundation for developing the insight to grow, as well as the coping strategies needed to tolerate discomfort and build new thought circuitry. I have a multi-theoretical training background, and I use this to tailor treatment to my patients individualized needs.

You're not exactly sure when it began, but each day, a strange emptiness takes over, making everything seem dull and lifeless. It feels like there's a vital piece missing that everyone else has. You experience a deep sense of loneliness and feel misunderstood by those around you. Your relationships have become an ongoing challenge, trapped in negative patterns that seem impossible to break. Communication with your partner is a mix of arguments and hurtful silent treatment. You've noticed yourself pulling away from friends because they don't seem to understand you. Despite your best efforts, you find yourself anxious and all alone.

I believe that therapy works best when it helps us get in touch with things we're not aware of and don't want to be aware of. We are all motivated to avoid painful thoughts, feelings, and memories. But along with that lack of awareness comes confusion, isolation, and the inability to act to improve our lives. In our work, we will strive together to figure out what you are unable to think about and feel, and then work through what we discover in a safe and supportive environment. This work can be very difficult, but its difficulty is also a measure of how important and life-changing it can be.

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.
