My approach to therapy begins with creating a safe and welcoming space in which I can get to know my clients as people. I work collaboratively with them to explore their challenges and difficulties, as well as their joys and successes. I believe that healing happens in supportive relationships. I enjoy building such connections with clients to support them working towards becoming the version of themselves they want to be.

I want to help first generation immigrant women because the struggles and challenges are unique. It is very difficult to find a therapist who has also experienced the generational/cultural views that often impede on our growth. It is very troublesome when we are trying to stay in tune with our cultural values while being modernized by American culture. First Generation Immigrants often feel the struggle of maintaining a balance and feeling inadequate because of unique morals.

You want to love and be loved, but something keeps getting in the way. That something is usually fear of being hurt again, fear of failing, and fear of not having the connection you truly desire. That fear is as old as you are, and it stained every attempt at intimacy and a loving relationship. You learned to over-function, to distract yourself, or to be overly accommodating to mask the fear, and no one sees the real you. Until now. You are ready to be seen. This time, you are ready to open yourself to love, but you need practical ways to move past the fear and release the joy and affection that you have to share with a partner.

I believe therapy is a collaborative and healing journey. I do not believe in the “one size fits all” philosophy of therapy. Therapy is personal and should be reflective in the treatments used during your time in session. In therapy the client is the driver, and I am a passenger. The client is in control of the process and I as the counselor can be a guide and offer feedback, but ultimately, the client makes the final decision. The client and I create a goal plan and address their specific concerns. I strive to empower clients, so they leave the process more confident and successful.

Do you worry all the time? Is it hard for you to turn your thoughts off? Would you like to enjoy the present moment, but feel unable to do so because you are so focused on the past or future? For many people, their fears negatively affect their relationships, work and health. They don't know how to let go of their worries or they've tried things that only made their problems worse.

Experiencing a period where we realize that life is not what we wanted or expected is difficult and often overwhelming. Relationship issues, life transitions, depression, anxiety, and trauma can all lead to stress and unhappiness. My calm and open approach addresses these concerns by creating a space where you can feel safe and comfortable to speak honestly. We begin by exploring thoughts and feelings to uncover patterns of thinking and acting and better understand where they came from. This enables you to begin to accept or change them and to heal from any pain they have caused.

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.
