In an age where families are incredibly busy and behaviors tend to occur at home, I realize the limitations of office based work. My home based therapy encourages parents to come up with realistic plans based on their natural home environment. I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience. I work with parents on ways to effectively manage their children's behavior in the comfort of their home. My expertise lies in families with children from birth to high school age. The children can be either typically developing or struggle with issues around Anxiety, OCD, ODD, and trichillmania.

Searching for a therapist can be overwhelming: scrolling through endless photos, personal statements, and credentials hoping to find someone with the perfect combination of traits to help you or your child. I don’t know if that perfect match exists, but I do believe the most important factor in therapy is the trusting relationship formed between the therapist and the client. I pride myself on my ability to connect with clients who haven’t clicked with therapists in the past, and for easing first-time clients into the process. I offer a warm, non-judgmental space, an open mind, a sense of humor, and a deep well of patience.

"What can children do when they feel worried?" Children experience fears and worries that make their lives more challenging. It can be overwhelming and frustrating for parents to see their child struggling with anxiety, but they do not have to handle their fears and worries alone. Many children can overcome their anxiety by learning ways to manage and cope with these feelings. I teach children ways to think and behave differently to help decrease their anxiety.

Most people who seek psychotherapy already possess a "spark" or a strong inclination for a certain change in their life. As you share your story my experience strengthens the spark, turning it to earnest desire and belief in the very real possibility of effecting change in your life. I lecture at the university level in the areas of DEALING WITH DIFFICULT PEOPLE and LEADERSHIP. I also lecture on ANXIETY MANAGEMENT. Though grounded in traditional psychotherapy, I espouse the merits of short-term and innovative techniques.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and have been helping people to improve their quality of life for over 25 years. I believe that change is achievable when we find greater balance; between emotions and rational thinking, between work and play, independence vs. seeking help, attention to ourselves vs. attention to others. There are many reasons why we can become stuck-- thoughts, habits, past experiences-- and therapy can help to identify and strengthen more effective ways of managing problems.

How do you get from feeling anxious, depressed, or simply overwhelmed, to feeling good and performing well at your job, with your academics, or in your relationships? By taking two evidence-based treatments (cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy) and adding a warm, supportive, and experienced therapist, the result can be major, positive change. As a therapist who has been working in these modes for over ten years, I have seen these changes first hand, witnessing the personal growth that brings with it a fulfilling life and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you as you build the life you want.

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.
