I am accepting new clients as of 6/23/2024. Inevitably, at some point in our lives we feel overwhelmed and exhausted as we try to keep it together in this incessantly pressurized world. If you're feeling swallowed up by depression, anxiety, stress, anger, or just emptiness, it’s important to remember that the way you feel right now isn’t how you have to feel tomorrow. The truth is that this negative emotion is indicating that certain aspects of your life are demanding to be addressed, as they would if you sprained your ankle. It is a signal that you are ready to find comfort and relief, ready for growth and change.

Living in a world filled with poverty, marginalization, oppression, and pandemic(s) can feel daunting and lead people to feel as though they have little agency. Therapy can be a helpful place to explore the places in our lives where we do have agency, where we are able to make tangible changes-often times this is in our interpersonal relationships. I work from an attachment focused and relational cultural perspective that is grounded in feminist practice which prioritizes the exploration of identities, oppression, intersectionality, and their impact on social and emotional functioning.

Are you looking for support? Welcome! I would love to hear from you. I can work with you to help improve your relationship with yourself (and those around you) by truly getting to know all of you - yes, even the parts of you that scare or embarrass you. Together we can work toward a more integrated whole, where you can exist with yourself in more harmony. The results are less shame and self-criticism, more self-compassion, more manageable moods and behaviors, and less reliance on patterns that aren't working for you any longer. I also work with adult sibling pairs who are struggling with their connection and/or conflict.

Leadership Skills, Performance Enhancement and Life Coaching. I am confident in the ability of the individual to change. We all face many difficult challenges in life, but these can become opportunities for growth and personal development. Most of us have never really learned the optimal skills and strategies to deal with these challenges. After 30 years working with individuals from a great variety of economic, educational and cultural backgrounds, I have found that identifying and letting go of our old, unproductive coping strategies, and replacing them with new ways of engaging with the world, allows us to live in a more rewarding and productive fashion.

We all have occasions throughout life that are particularly difficult or painful. During these times, additional emotional & social support are needed. Therapy is a helpful resource for navigating these inevitable challenges... it is a unique process, as it requires a willingness to look honestly within ourselves, assessing our strengths as well as our limitations. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients. Together we will explore the parts of life that you feel uneasy about, and then proactively develop strategies that can enable more peace of mind & a greater sense of well-being. Shifting from simply surviving... to thriving.

Everyone deserves support and guidance amidst the unique challenges and transitions of life. My counseling practice offers two distinct specialties: one is a focus on adolescent girls and non-binary youth between the ages of 15-19. The other is supporting parents of all aged youth with ADHD to feel empowered with clear information about their child's neurodivergence. I am passionate about both of these unique experiences and seek to provide the opportunity to reflect, learn, and problem solve with an experienced therapist.

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.
