Is stress, exhaustion, and being overwhelmed getting in the way of living the life you desire? Do past distressing events or having a history of unmet needs causing you not to fully connect with your loved ones or friends?

My intention is to walk with client’s on their journey of finding inner peace, empowerment, and healing. I am a bilingual somatic psychotherapist and specialize in working with those who have experienced trauma, childhood abuse, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, and peri/postpartum support.

You’re so close to having it all together, but somehow never any closer. You drive yourself to exhaustion because you’re afraid of letting others down, but your own dreams are perpetually on hold. You’ve been telling yourself, “Just get through these next few days,” for years now. Your friends have it all together - beautiful homes and families, while you’re struggling just to keep the dishes from piling up. You obsess over a dumb comment you made at work while the bully in your mind pummels your self-confidence. Now you’re second-guessing yourself, and it’s hurting your performance. You know you’re capable of so much more.

Many adults may seek the help of a therapist when they are feeling depressed or anxious. Often they might be experiencing disillusionment, discontent, doubt or restlessness but are not sure of the reasons why. Many times they seek to alleviate the painful emotions resulting from loss, or dysfunction in interpersonal relationships. I believe my role is to assist these clients in determining the source of their discontent and developing coping skills to live successfully and happily, in spite of life's challenges. I especially enjoy working with adults experiencing midlife transitions and the associated challenges of the afternoon of life.

I want to help each client identify where they want to see change in their life, and to facilitate growth through uncovering whatever obstacles are preventing them from experiencing fulfillment.

I believe the therapeutic relationship can be both healing and empowering for individuals. I use a cognitive behavioral, strength-based approach to alleviate the effects of trauma and assist individuals to reaching their goal. As we go through life, we must learn to navigate through traumatic events such as the impact of life-threatening illnesses, childhood abuse, and other traumatic occurrences. Often traumatic experiences change our way of life forcing us to define a “New Normal”; I will provide therapeutic support to combat issues such as anxiety, depression, frustration, and trauma.

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.
