Life changes. Some life changes can be anticipated or predicted; some occur spontaneously, without notice or warning. Regardless of how they occur, all require adaptation and adjustment to what is different or new. We seldom have much difficulty with small changes—those that don’t disrupt a familiar lifestyle or a solid sense of self. Other life changes can be more challenging, sometimes making navigation from the present uncertain, frightening, and maybe even overwhelming. The counseling process can promote successful transitioning and significant personal growth in the course of life changes.

Therapy does not equal mental illness. The truth is, we all face difficult experiences in life that seem unmanageable at times. Therapy is a safe space and a judgment-free zone. This is a place for you to be real, raw, and your authentic self.

I enjoy working with adolescents and adults with anxiety, depression, and substance abuse disorders. Feeling anxious or sad can be scary and lead to feelings of confusion, loneliness, fear, and shame. I can help you develop and implement healthy coping skills and boundaries which will allow you to feel more in control of your life. It is important to recognize that a patient’s family may also need support and assistance throughout this process. With my guidance, the family will develop an understanding of the patient’s symptoms and gain skills that will lead to healthy boundaries and support for the patient.

Do you feel lost, as if others have some sort of cheat code to life that no one passed to you? Maybe you've always felt different than most, leaving you to question your identity and intuition. I've been there and even continue to do the work that allows me to feel grounded in my identity, and befriend my authentic self. At 31, all my quirky traits and unpopular opinions finally made sense, once I learned about and embraced my neurodivergent brain. There is no specific blueprint on who to be or how to live. We all have varying identities that make life exciting, challenging, and rewarding.

Life can be an emotional roller coaster, and sometimes we feel stuck, out of control, or hopeless. We can feel inadequate and misunderstood.. What makes us successful are the coping skills we learn to use, the ability to set boundaries, and proper communication. Together, we will create a plan to address what’s holding you back, and at the same time enhance your strengths. I prefer to meet with my clients on a weekly basis, which is typically the most effective way for you to meet your treatment goals. The length of treatment varies with each individual or couple, which we can discuss together.

I specialize in Anxiety, Self-Esteem, Relationships, Depression, and navigating Change. My approach includes bringing my own experiences to bear on Evidence-Based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Strengths-based therapy. While CBT emphasizes developing new skills to make changes, a strengths-based approach utilizes a person’s abilities and dispositions that can be built upon to help them work through difficult times. Simply put, it’s easier to build on a foundation than to start from scratch. I also discuss the benefits of Mindfulness as viewed through a Neuroscience Lens rather than a spiritual perspective.

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.
