Are you finding yourself scrolling through mental health videos and yelling, "OMG. That's me?!" You are not alone, survival mode really is a thing, there are others out there drinking caffeine like it's water and hiding in the bathroom to eat a cookie in peace. It's time to let down your messy bun, put on the clothes that make you feel good, and let yourself be free to be who you are. If you are a caregiver for little ones, it is time to find out who YOU are outside of what those little ones need. You want to run wild, to fuel your soul, to be fierce, discover who you are again, and love the self you lost while trying to survive.

My practice draws clients who want a place where they can show up as their most authentic selves. I work with depressed, anxious, neurodivergent individuals and people in relationships to help them find ways they can "be here now" in an increasingly distracting and devastating world. I also work with parents, military members and their spouses, and other helping professionals. My clients need the opportunity to safely experiment with exploring new ways of being, whether that looks like practicing somatic co-regulation or role playing a difficult conversation. I am honored to join others on their journey to self-rediscovery!

I help people rebound from difficult situations and reclaim purpose, meaning and pleasure in their life. I help them resolve their inner conflicts so that they may gain psychological freedom and enjoy all of what life has to offer them. Resolving inner conflicts removes barriers to relationships that form the basis for a coherent personal identity, relationship intimacy, and success in business and personal life. By using what happens in the therapy relationship, we can encounter, examine, and master the unconscious fears and beliefs that produce the debilitating problems which profoundly affect our lives, and thwart our goals.

Have you been in therapy for as long as you can remember and still have no idea how to regulate your emotions, what to do with your life, or how to maintain healthy relationships? Do you feel things so very deeply, and no one else seems to understand? Maybe you don't know how to turn off intrusive thoughts in your mind, and are desperate to find connection with something that’s real. Are you a caregiver navigating complex parenting dynamics and feeling distressed and hopeless? Have you suffered loss, invalidation, or abuse and have never been able to fully put that weight down? If so, you are my people.

In my experience, the therapeutic alliance between therapist and client is arguably the most important part of successful counseling. It can be incredibly important to find a therapist you connect with, who is also able to provide evidence based treatment that is right for you. ​ I have worked in the field of mental health and social work for nearly a decade. I've worked with clients ranging from pre-school kids to grandparents and everyone in between. ​ I currently prefer to work with adult women (18 and over) looking to heal from past trauma, tackle anxiety, or find freedom from OCD and intrusive thoughts.

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.
