Psychotherapy provides the support and structure to facilitate your ability to make positive changes. I work with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, transitions throughout the life span, parenting concerns, stress at work, school or home. I have an interactive style and I evaluate the needs of each client in order to determine the type of approach that would be most useful. With an eclectic approach the work we do may, for example, include psycho-dynamic and insight oriented work, a problem solving focus, behavior modification or stress management. I may suggest "homework" at times such as a relaxation exercise or a relevant reading.

My approach to psychotherapy is based on both my education and more than 30 years of experience as a clinical psychologist, including research, teaching, writing, and supervision. Psychotherapy is a path defined by both therapist and client. Each individual client brings unique resources, strengths, weaknesses, problems, hopes, and expectations to therapy as well as their own idiom, their way of expressing themselves. Together, we will search for what gives meaning to your life and what may be interfering in its realization. Successful psychotherapy depends on the quality of the relationship between client and therapist.

At one time or another, any one of us may feel overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. We may feel we are alone in our suffering or going through something no one else can understand. We may turn to drugs, alcohol or reckless behaviors. Our relationships suffer, our identity and self-worth collapse, and the vision we have for a happy, fulfilled future seems impossible to achieve. For many, therapy provides the guidance, skills, support and insight to unravel the source of suffering and change limiting thoughts, beliefs and behaviors into healthy, adaptive ones.

I seek to bring the best of my learning to match up with who you are. I don’t treat a diagnosis, per se I address the underlying, not so obvious factors that lock a person into patterns of behavior & patterns of response that give rise to the symptoms we see in things like depression, social and relational struggling, anxiety and a general feeling of life as painful. Models- Attachment Theory, Polyvagal Theory, and Affective Neuroscience are my building blocks. AEDP & ISTDP speak to me in particularly in creating lasting change.

It needs a loving witness, partner, guide; I have been that. I specialize in serving adult patients seeking introspection and exploration; couples harboring resentments, needing communication and listening skills; and parents interested in learning effective methods of parenting.

Discussing the challenges you've been through is a vulnerable place, but also one that can be full of growth and clarity. I work with children, teens, and adults dealing with some of life's big transitions. I utilize an integrative approach to create a safe, trauma informed space to build regulation skills, communication skills, and process trauma. I have a background in working with adult survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, college students, and children in foster care birth to 21. Trauma and transitions are taxing in their own profound ways, but each lead to change. I'm here to hold that space with you.

In working with clients in psychotherapy, I find it useful first to sort out what's working in their lives from what's not. Then we look at what's not working; be it depression, anxiety, obsessive thinking, compulsive & addictive behavior, and extreme emotional reactions. All of these things can all serve as clues to help us identify and address hidden and unexpressed emotions and experiences. (In addition to treating adults, couples, and adolescents with the more standard therapy issues, I have extensive experience working with the full gamut of sexual topics.)

Is your past controlling you in the present in ways that aren't serving you? Our experiences shape the way we live, love and make sense of the world. When we are controlled by past traumatic experiences we lose the ability to "choose" how we want to respond to ourselves and others; instead becoming reactive. This affects how we feel physically and emotionally; which can make us feel depressed, anxious, a shameful. I help people become more mindful as they face the unknown, and begin to integrate new aspects of the self that supports wellbeing. Most people come to me for deep change, which takes time and hard work.

My ideal client is ready to challenge themselves to do the work and is tired of feeling stuck or on autopilot. You may have long struggled with focus, sticking to a plan, anxiety, or follow-through. You may find you're still living your life according to your upbringing, rather than in the present. As a result, you may feel overwhelmed, depressed, like you've wasted time, or have no control. I enjoy helping people through life transitions. I also have expertise working with people in startups and technology fields, decision making, and adult ADHD. If you are ready to make some changes, but need a partner, consider reaching out.

Research has shown that the primary factors involved in change in a therapeutic setting are the clients' internal strengths. The second most important factor is the relationship between the client and the therapist. At the very core, therapy is about a healing relationship. This is what a prospective client should ask regarding a therapist when entering therapy: is it a relationship that is conducive to your growth, whatever your goals?

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.
