Has life become difficult through no fault of your own? Or maybe it's entirely because of things you've done or failed to do. Either way, you shouldn't have to face it alone. It takes courage to ask for help but the rewards can lead to something greater. Everyone's a little more anxious or depressed these days and sometimes you need help to get back on track. You don't have to do this alone.

My practice focuses on assisting teens and emerging adults in navigating their complex world and the issues that are common for them including anxiety, depression, body image issues, and self-harm. I often hear "I feel like I don't know what I'm doing" and therapy can be a place where this feeling is both normalized (who does know what they're doing?!) and to gain more perspective on how to cope with challenges while finding their place in this world.

My approach to mental health counseling is very simple, one that encompasses unconditional positive regard and that encourages self-exploration throughout the therapeutic encounter. The client is considered the expert of his/her own life who may need support when challenges or obstacles become overwhelming and/or problematic (maladaptive). Through this therapeutic collaboration clients learn to identify how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors may positively or negatively impact their daily experience. If problematic belief patterns are identified, the client will co-create a treatment plan aimed to reduce the negative symptomatology while enhancing the client's self-esteem and overall well-being.

Life is filled with challenges, but therapy doesn’t have to be one of them. The therapy process is sometimes seen as one-sided, with you feeling disconnected and without a chance to really engage. I can say that I see you for you, and I want to help you find the solutions and life changes you’re looking for! Calling a therapist can feel daunting, but I hope you’ll take a moment (and maybe a deep breath!) and call and see how I can be of help.

Either way, collaboration with a counselor you connect well with can be the best way to create lasting change for a more fulfilling life. Together we can work to resolve the challenges you are facing; those that you are aware of, and those that you can’t quite see yet.

At times we all can struggle. Whether in relationships, friendships or just in life, we can need some help. If this sounds familiar, I'd love to sit with you and help as we get things back on track. Although a large part of my practice is with couples, I also work with individuals. I believe that at our core, we want to connect with other people and feel connected with ourselves. We don't want to feel alone. My practice is based in a process known as Emotionally Focused Therapy ("EFT"). EFT is based on ideas of attachment/connection with others. It helps us understand how emotions impact our sense of connection in life.

I believe that reaching out to start therapy is an act of courage. In life, we experience everything from joy to dark despair, and sometimes it may feel like we get stuck in the difficult parts. Real change involves getting to know ourselves better in order to unravel old patterns that keep us from living a more flexible and fulfilling life. Establishing a relationship with a therapist who is committed to understanding you means you have someone working with you as you navigate life's inevitable transitions and 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.
