Visit my website (link on menu)! Accepting new clients! In my 15 years of clinical experience I’ve learned that much of the dysfunction, frustration, depression and uncomfortable moments in life are a result of trauma. Big ones, little ones… we are a product of our lived experiences. Some of those lived experiences left us with lasting consequences. Utilizing a comprehensive, but EMDR based approach, we can partner on a recovery journey which is evidence based proven to be effective in these circumstances. I also work with couples and take a diverse approach at treatment - including couples therapy and EMDR when appropriate.

Whether you are seeking help for yourself, your teen, or your family, you've come to the right place. If you are ready to make some changes and figure out the core of what is causing the distress, disruption, or unease, we can work together to figure out the best ways to help you (or your teen) move forward in a healthy way. So many times, we spin in circles trying to figure out which direction to go.  People get caught in their own heads, so it's hard to make sense of all of the thoughts/feelings. You no longer need to be trapped in that cycle alone. We can work together to pick out the pieces that will help you create balance.

My goal as a therapist is to help you make sense of difficult past experiences and make meaningful changes in your life. We will work collaboratively to help you acquire the tools needed to make progress towards your goals. I work to personalize each therapeutic experience to meet my clients' needs, strengths, and goals. Sessions often focus on helping you gain insight into patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving and learning to modify those unhelpful and maladaptive patterns to improve your mental health and quality of life.

Today’s world can seem overwhelming and exhausting to many of us. Sometimes, even getting out of bed seems like a chore. Anxiety can feel like it has a vice grip on your life. Imagine if you didn’t have to feel this way. It is possible. I have a history of working with individuals that struggle with addictions, people in the criminal justice system, and those who suffer from anxiety, depression, PTSD, c-PTSD, eating disorders, mood disorders, the LGBTQIA population, and couples struggling in their relationships. The therapies I offer focus on helping to alleviate the negative symptoms that can come with these battles.

My clients often tell me they seek therapy when beginning to question why their knowledge and hard work is not translating to increased life satisfaction. Some are finding the work-life balance lauded by media, family, friends, and colleagues to feel elusive. Others find quests for self-improvement are resulting in cycles of determined action followed by disappointment, self-doubt, and feelings of shame or inadequacy. Most want to live in a way that is aligned to their identities and values, but find this has often resulted in more pain. If any of these ring true to you- you are not alone, and your efforts have not been in vain.

After a crisis, loss or trauma each individual has their own unique way of coping. Sadness, guilt, anger, shock and feelings of helplessness are common. The healing process may begin with the passage of time and the support of loved ones, but many people find that professional help is beneficial during this very vulnerable time. I believe that everyone deserves to feel whole and live a life of joy and purpose. I'm committed to providing a holistic approach to mental health care, that honors the unique complexities of each individual and the mind/body connection.

You’re depressed, stressed out, or worrying all the time. You have noticed that you’re having trouble doing things. You know the feelings you’re having are making it hard to keep relationships or make new ones. Maybe you’re struggling to ask for what you need or to set boundaries. You aren’t interested in things like you once were. You don’t like feeling this way, but you don’t know how to change it.

I help alcohol troubled people control or stop their drinking. I use The Sinclair Method, which allows most people to control their drinking by taking a Naltrexone pill our hour prior to every drinking episode. For most people (78% according to the research) this results in reduced drinking to a problem-free level; many people stop drinking completely. No detox or rehab is necessary and treatment consists primarily of brief, regular coaching. I refer you to physicians who are familiar with The Sinclair Method, and will provide the medical service necessary for you to use this approach. I provide coaching, support and encouragement.

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.
