A wonderful image of where good therapy can lead is of a knitter transforming a pile of chaotic threads and snarled knots into something beautiful, intentional, and nurturing. The internal elements that create your experience of life can truly learn new stories to live in and be safely released from stories of fear, shame, and contraction. As your therapist, I will help you hold your commitment and courage by guiding your relationship with yourself at a pace that is sustainable yet brave, using tools that will help you lovingly meet and free your lifeforce from old survival strategies and step into a much more creative existence.

All of us experience some confusion, anxiety, sadness, or conflict periodically, but if daily life becomes characterized by those feelings, something about life is out of balance. Do you feel stuck in a relationship or job, or troubled with negative, or fearful thoughts that won't go away? Sometimes we can loose a sense of hopefulness and pleasure about life. Perhaps we experienced a recent or far distant loss that left us floundering in sadness and grief. Maybe we have become weary searching for spiritual fulfillment, yet finding most ideas of a higher power to be disheartening or unbelievable.

I see each person as uniquely shaped by their biopsychosocial make-up. Perhaps the very strategies that allowed you to feel safe and embedded in your family or community, have left you feeling limited by who you now know yourself to be. You may be seeking alignment with your authentic self. You may be feeling anxious, insecure, depressed or lonely. These experiences are deeply significant, come from somewhere, and are worthy of being curious about. Together we can get familiar with the once-brilliant adaptations that may no longer serve you. From that fertile place of deep empathy and accompaniment, new growth can emerge.

I work with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of issues including: parenting and school issues, TAG, underachievement, and learning disabilities; trauma healing; healthy communication; relationship dynamics; anxiety and depression; and chronic illness. People do the best they can at any given time. Sometimes life brings challenges which can overwhelm an individual's, couple's or family's resources. I work with clients to assess their current situation, identify goals, and develop strategies to meet those goals in a timely manner. My clients find ways to supplement existing coping skills and develop new approaches to replace ineffective strategies.

It takes courage to seek help...for yourself or for your child/teen. I recognize how influential parents are when it comes to the emotional lives of their kids. Therefore my approach often includes some work with you to help you understand your child/teen's behaviors and to identify the implicit emotional needs in what you may be seeing. Often these externalized behaviors require some attuned response from you which can assist your child to feel and function better, and make important adaptations to family/life situations.

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.
