Have you wondered if your child or adolescent would benefit from therapy? I offer a complimentary consultation to discuss any questions you may have. I can help your child explore their feelings, make sense of their experience, and develop their full potential. I can help your child become their own therapist by learning techniques and coping strategies to learn how to deal with their challenges in their lives. I work well with children and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, social issues, learning issues, attention deficit disorder, and body image issues. Clients often see improved well-being early on in therapy.

Life is difficult, you don't have to go through all of it alone. Feeling unsupported in your current environment, feeling stuck or stagnant, or feeling that you cannot move or grow, can be overwhelming. If you feel like you're going between two different worlds or multiple roles that are difficult to juggle, it can take a toll on one's self. If some of these things are true for you, therapy can be a place for you to be seen, heard & supported. This is the great thing about therapy, this space is completely for you.

Have you been trying to manage your struggles on your own, not sure of where to turn next? Do you struggle with trauma, and have tried talk therapy with little to no success? Are you stuck in reoccurring patterns that you feel are no longer serving you? My background in holistic treatments including EMDR helps clients shift out of reoccurring patterns through integrating EMDR and other modalities in with traditional talk therapy to help facilitate change for clients and get to a place of healing.

I know how difficult it can be to open up to someone about your most vulnerable, hidden self. This step is often the hardest to take, and although taking it means facing thoughts and feelings you'd rather not, it also means creating a path of healing for yourself. I strive to provide my clients with a safe, therapeutic space filled with compassion and empathy to support them while we take on this challenge. Together, we will begin to explore the feelings and experiences that cause you pain.

When you are physically ill you turn to your doctor, hoping they can help you feel better. Problems like depression, anxiety, impulsivity, uncontrollable anger, guilt, or low self-confidence can be as painful, if not more so, than physical illness; they can also create serious relationship and work difficulties. I have over 25 years of experience and I have helped many adults, adolescents, and couples who had received limited or no benefit from previous therapists, other doctors, or medications. I work well with people who are skeptical of, or intimidated by, talk therapy.

I am current not accepting new clients. In therapy, I help clients recognize the maladaptive patterns and harmful hidden systems that may be holding them back, and we work together to co-create a happier and healthier way of being in the world. As a professor at Columbia University in the counseling psychology program, my research focuses on how negative life experiences impact stress and well-being, and how this may be magnified for people from historically disempowered groups. Our clinical work can cover a broad array of issues ranging from identity development and career empowerment to recovery from trauma and sexual violence.

You appear to have it all figured out on the outside, but on the inside, you often feel nervous, scared, and overwhelmed. You’re successful and have achieved great things, but you still don’t feel worthy. It’s hard to feel good enough when you always need to please others and be perfect. This has left you questioning yourself, exhausted and anxious. You’re not sure why you’re feeling so anxious. Perhaps it's a fear of failure or rejection. You’ve learned that your successes are what makes you valuable. This mindset has helped you get to where you are today, but it's ruining your mood, your ability to relax and your sense of self.

It's not just you. Countless people are feeling lost, unmoored, and stuck in old patterns, and the usual/traditional "how does that make you feel?" therapy can sometimes feel lacking. With over 8 years in the mental health field, both as a Mental Health Counselor and Psychologist, I recognize that mental health is so much more than what is happening internally. My work is rooted in the belief that mental health cannot be addressed in isolation from other aspects of your life, such as your relationships, health, community, and broader social issues and systems. Tackling all this alone can feel so very daunting.

I have worked with all different folks in the last 20 years and still do. However, I have recently focused on gay men and the trauma of growing up gay. I am interested in what it means to be gay/queer identified in 2023, what relationships mean and how they change, and how we negotiate work, family, relationships, sex, love, and identity. I believe that growing up LGBTQ can be a trauma that needs to be explored.

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.
