Let's take a journey together! You're the driver on this road trip that we will take together; as the therapist/co-pilot, I will help you navigate and explore, work through those bumps and winding curves in the road, and maybe find alternative ways to get to the destination. Maybe you're finding yourself stuck in the "mud," just spinning your wheels with the same patterns of thinking? Or maybe you're approaching a detour or having difficulty navigating all the potholes along the same road?

If you find yourself repeating old patterns in relationships, suffering from past trauma, or navigating the world as a queer, trans, or otherwise marginalized person, the right trauma and sex therapist could be the missing member of your support team.

Problems and challenges are real and difficult, but for each of us they may be challenging for different reasons. Sometimes we are stuck in a problem because of the ways in which our past experiences, relationships, traumas, and families have shaped our feelings, thoughts, and physiological reactions. Part of our work together involves creating space for new situations and understandings from which a new solution to a problem can evolve. While sometimes that work is brief, it can take a bit more time when we are looking at lifelong patterns, issues related to family, dynamics, and attachment, or different types of trauma.

I believe therapy is an experience of self-exploration and healing where people find strength and gain insight. My practice serves individuals with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and stage of life issues. I assist couples with communication, negotiation, co-parenting issues, and rediscovering relationship harmony and desire. Negative experiences, toxic relationships, and trauma can plague individuals and couples. In therapy we explore how to increase healthy communication, gain assertiveness, and battle guilt and shame.

If you feel stuck, ruminative, or disconnected from your own life, and are seeking an engaged and examined life, psychotherapy can help. I deeply enjoy empowering my patients to know themselves and those around them with greater nuance, depth and honesty. Rather than labeling symptoms in a medicalized, detached way, I work to help patients negotiate complex relationships with themselves and those around them. By identifying patterns and the ways we find ourselves "stuck", psychotherapy can help disentangle these impasses, offering a freer way of being in the world.

Our identities have been sculpted and influenced by what societal narratives say our lives are "supposed to be". I believe that human struggle and periods of transition are a natural part of life that can oftentimes make us feel as if we are living a life that is out of our control. Through self-exploration, strength identification, coaching, and supportive guidance, therapy can help to transform difficult experiences into rich opportunities for growth, healing, and change.

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.
