Hello! My name is Michael Peachey, MAMFT and I am the founder of Shalom Counseling.

I am excited to get to know you, and to work with you to come up with the best plan to tackle whatever problems you are facing in life! I do not specialize in simply "giving advice", rather I want to walk with you as you look at issues in your life so that there can be healing and wholeness.

I view therapy as an opportunity that clients create for self-exploration, healing, growth, and relationship enhancement. I strongly believe that at the heart of every successful therapeutic outcome is a trusting and supportive client-therapist relationship, and it is in that context that my clients are able to explore historical and developmental issues, and their overall sense of self.

Dealing with the 21st century, typically, people tend to want to see results fast. For instance, for a cold, we usually take Dayquil or a drug that is similar to get rid of the cold symptoms quickly, so the cold does not get in the way of our day to day living. By incorporating gestalt methods into balancing a person's self, it satisfies the need to see results fast by focusing on "the here and now" and what oneself can do right now in the present to try and achieve balance. By seeking counseling, there is no magic wand or pill that can "cure us."

Relationships can be rich and rewarding as well as disappointing and painful. Perhaps you have repetitive arguments that go nowhere, or have reached an impasse, or your relationship has become distant and lacks intimacy. You may be experiencing a relationship crisis involving infidelity or other forms of betrayal. Creating a satisfying relationship that can stand the test of time requires skill, attention, and effort. I help couples develop the necessary relational skills to communicate and problem-solve more effectively, understand each other better, manage reactivity, navigate difficult challenges, and find a path forward.

You just want peace and serenity in your relationship and in yourself. Maybe you've found yourself being overly irritable, angry, often and with weak justification. Or you've been stalled by the overwhelming feelings of fear or possibly sadness at times. It could be that other people have said you have a problem and you just can't really see it. You could feel lonely and unsure of what to do because you're in a relationship and you're not "supposed" to feel that way. What would it mean to be at peace? Is it not feeling angry or sad, is it finally meeting some of those goals you've had for yourself, career, or family?

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.
