The decision to seek counseling is a courageous step. I believe this courage stems from a desire to be well, to be heard and affirmed, to have our needs met, to be empowered, a desire to live out of the truth of who we are and become the authors of our own lives. While each of us has a life story that is unique, I believe this desire is shared by all. As a counselor, I am privileged to provide a safe, professional, and supportive environment wherein individuals and couples can develop new tools to heal, learn and grow.

Evaluating our symptoms is a bridge to healing. Symptoms direct us toward the source of our suffering and point us in the direction of our solace. Oftentimes, clients enter counseling because they feel there is something wrong with them that needs to be fixed. However, there is nothing wrong. Our symptoms are not markers of failure or brokenness, they are expressions of need. Emotional duress and mental stress are a doorway or a "calling" for new behaviors and outlooks. When clients work with awareness, focus, and gentle persistence, life improves. Our bodies have an inherent ability to heal themselves. Our minds do, too.

Being a person is hard. Managing demands of work or school, relationships, family, life changes, and finances all while trying to take care of your heart, mind, body, and soul can feel impossible. It's even harder when you constantly feel anxious, overstimulated, or down and depressed with little relief. Burnout is also on the rise and especially for those in helping professions. On top of this, it is often we carry the unhelpful narratives from past experiences with us through our daily life. If you resonate with any of these challenges, you are not alone, and I am hopeful there are options to help you feel better.

Have you ever noticed yourself feeling trapped in a situation, looking for something to help you escape and distract yourself? Or found yourself wanting to change a behavior or routine because that pattern no longer works for you? Maybe a little of both? We often find ourselves feeling stuck in life, wishing that we could change something about ourselves, our situation, or our environment. We look for solutions and sometimes find that we don’t have everything we need to make the change, that it’s not the right time, or that we don’t have as much control over the situation as we would like.

In the course of my counseling career I have never heard “The one thing in in life I really enjoy is struggling with my anxiety/depression/low self-esteem/trauma/etc…” Because, that would be silly. But that’s what many people do, just that, struggle, fight and put their time and energy into focusing on something that they would swear to anyone who would listen that they don’t like in the first place. You deserve to get unstuck, move forward, or past things that have been taking up far more time and space in your life then you want. I believe in working with people to help them focus their energy on the things that matter most.

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.
