My goal as a therapist is to help kids, teens, and young adults have healthy attachments, high self-esteem, and the skills to handle big emotions. Together we can identify and disrupt troubling behavioral patterns and ditch the unhelpful family traditions passed down through generations. If you are tired of the status quo and able to commit to the therapeutic process (which can be inconvenient and uncomfortable at times), we may be a good match for each other. Please note: I have opted out of Oklahoma's health information exchange and offer affirming care.

Life sometimes gets in the way of living our lives to the fullest. With changes in family situations, behavior, loss and pain, it can be difficult finding hope and the confidence to face these daily challenges. Children and teens sometimes are unable to identify their feelings appropriately and suffer without understanding. Children communicate through play and through play therapy the client is able to process feelings, thoughts, and experiences.

UNABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. Difficulties or frustration in your relationships? Do you feel as though no one hears you? Do you have feelings of anxiety or depression without knowing where those feelings are coming from? Many of the individuals I work with feel this way due to relationship conflicts, childhood emotional neglect issues, trauma, daily stress, and ineffective communication. Hope and success are achievable. I believe creating a safe environment for clients to express and process feelings and frustrations is of the utmost importance.

Life presents so many challenges for parents, such as work stress, family discord, finances, and parenting issues. Parenting is the most challenging, yet rewarding work anyone will ever do. Sometimes we all need help in this area. Children can be met with their own set of life's challenges from school difficulties, social media interference, and bullying. There are times that we need help individually to deal with our particular life's challenges, some of which can interfere with our family cohesiveness. Your goal may be to improve your outlook, process trauma, improve family dynamics, or you just need to talk.

I understand the difficulty of admitting the need for help and finding a person that is worthy of your trust. I hold my client's trust as sacred and consider it an honor each time I am invited into their life stories. I believe a good counseling service is one where the client has a sense of being in the "drivers seat" throughout the process. This approach allows people to have a strong sense of ownership of their personal growth that empowers them for future life challenges.

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.
