Do you find yourself struggling with depression, anxiety, or constantly feeling “stuck”? Are you tired of feeling sad, lonely, and not having people who truly understand your struggles? Did you grow up in a community that stigmatized mental health and discouraged seeking support outside of your home or religion? Are you worried that someone might judge or consider you “weak” if you ask for help? Let me reassure you that there is absolutely nothing wrong with you, and you are not weak. There is no shame in seeking support. There is no shame in wanting a better life for yourself. There is certainly no shame in seeking happiness.

As a psychotherapist, I deeply believe that the therapeutic relationship can be a powerful vehicle for healing and growth. When we are seen, heard, and felt by another, we are able to connect more closely to what is happening within us. Through insight and process we are empowered to tackle patterns and behaviors that no longer serve us, and honor ones that do. It is my goal to hold space for and collaborate with my clients to sustain meaningful, self directed change in their lives.

I became a therapist to help people realize their true capabilities in the midst of adversity. I want to normalize the idea of therapy and mobilize people, especially from a Black/African-American/Latinx background, to seek help sooner rather than later. Real growth starts when you are fed up with the nonsense and want to make moves. Therapy is a process that cannot be rushed, nor half done. It is not an overnight cure. How do we set boundaries without feeling guilty? How do we catch, challenge, and change anxious negative thoughts? How do we shed old skin, forgive our past selves, and step into a new version?

In therapy, we will dedicate space and time to address what needs to be explored more fully in your life, so that meaningful connections can be made to begin the process of healing. Often times life transitions may leave one wondering how to move forward or cope with difficult emotions that emerge from loss, illness, divorce, or other significant changes that alter the patterns of your life. Each session is a learning experience focused on you to better understand yourself and make changes. We can explore ways to cope with any anxiety, sadness, or stress that are challenging for you.

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.

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.

What type of therapist is right for me?

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.

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 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.

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.
