It's not easy to build and support a relationship. Trying to maintain an intimate relationship with our partner, balance the ever-changing relationship with our children, or establish healthy boundaries with our in-laws can be stressful to our mental and emotional health. And, if there are misunderstandings and miscommunication, they can make us feel disconnected from loved ones. If you feel frustrated or lost in one or more of these areas, you may need some guidance and some helpful tools.

Life can be challenging and we all struggle at times, but you don’t have to struggle alone. Our lives consist of relationships filled with many connections, some more challenging than others. Our greatest relationship of all is the one we have with ourselves. Once we take the journey to accept ourselves, gain the tools to be able to set boundaries, and identify what we need- we open the door for our external connections to thrive.

People worry every day. Some worriers "worry all their lives." Excessive, non-productive WORRY may lead to symptoms seen in generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), irritability and depression. There may be misguided behavioral strategies or unresolved experiences that prevent more productive use of worry and subsequent self-esteem enhancement. I will help you understand your worrying behavior, learn about how to live with uncertainty and consider strategies and new behaviors you have not yet thought about. I pride myself in my ability to develop good working relationships with my clients, a crucial part of therapy.

We live in a world full of stressors. Some are motivational, some lead to sense of loss and depression, some create anxiety and problems in relationships. Therapy can help control those stressors when they spiral out of control. I provide a safe environment to help understand these stressors, and reduce their impact. I work with individuals and couples, and work with men reluctant to enter therapy, providing a non-judgmental environment.

My style of treatment focuses on helping clients find patterns in their emotions, thoughts, and beliefs in order to gain insight into their current self. Our work together aims for you to explore how reactions to present-day circumstances may be influenced by past events.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

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.
