I am eager to help individuals who feel stuck and emotionally overwhelmed. I want to help people see that there is hope through even the most hopeless of times. I have felt called to help people out of the dark corners of life so they can start living renewed lives.

I help people overcome stress and anxiety related to life transitions/changes. Feeling excessively anxious and dealing with panic attacks creates self-doubt, and leads to being unable to move forward with our dreams and intentions. I too struggled with anxiety and panic attacks resulting in wasted time and missed opportunities. I will teach you the same tools and strategies that worked for me and the many clients I have helped over the years.

Do you feel like everything on the outside is "perfect" but you are struggling on the inside? Does life seem great "on paper" but you aren't happy? Do you feel like all your friends are happy and you're a mess? These feelings are more common than you think and can come from all kinds of sources - family problems, transition/change, and just an overall uncertainty of who you are and what you want -including questions about sexuality and gender. Life doesn't come with a handbook. But the good news is that I don't think we need one!

I see my role as a counselor is one of an assistant or facilitator. I believe we all have the ability to help ourselves but we sometimes need a little help. As we go about our daily lives, we encounter stress which can affect us in different ways; showing up as depression, anxiety, health problems, or relationship problems. Sometimes we need someone to listen and give us a different perspective on our problems and insight as to how to deal effectively with them. I am familiar with cognitive-behavioral techniques and incorporate family systems and personality theories as needed.

Are you feeling emotional, struggle to get to sleep, and lack the motivation to engage in activities you used to love? Over one out of five adults struggle with mental health symptoms and at least half of them do not receive support due to not having access to this type of help or believing they will never feel better. These symptoms often occur with life adjustments including loss of loved ones, loss of jobs, medical issues, and changing responsibilities at home, work, and school. When symptoms interfere with your quality of life, it’s time to get some support!

I believe that everyone has inner strengths and abilities that are at times overshadowed by life circumstances and physical/mental health/spiritual struggles. With caring support and encouragement individuals can regain perspective, recognize and use their strengths, and grow further in their ability to manage symptoms and life stressors allowing them to overcome barriers to their wellness. Having 35 years of experience in the mental health field, I've dealt with a variety of issues primarily in the areas related to depression, anxiety, trauma/abuse, emotional regulation and grief/loss.

At some point, we all need help navigating life issues such as relationship struggles, grief and loss, parenting stress, anxiety, workplace challenges, trauma, and self-esteem. None of us can handle life's challenges alone. For times when it is too much, counseling is a process where we work together to promote acceptance and change. As a professional in the field for 20 years I have experience working with couples and individuals. I like to understand my client's worldview and then work with them to make life a little (or a lot) better. Life can be really hard and it is helpful to know you are not alone.

Each day we have a chance to strive to live a life that is authentic and genuine, a life that represents and reflects who we are as people. Oftentimes, that authentic and genuine person becomes derailed and buried beneath the weight of life stressors. These stressors present in the form of anxiety, depression, trauma, interpersonal conflicts, relationship conflicts, grief/loss, loss of meaning/purpose, and beyond. Sometimes the assistance of a helping hand, an open ear, and an attuned mind is all that's needed to help us return to living as our authentic selves.

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.
