I work for The Center For Growth, treating everything from mental health to sex and relationship issues. I can help you manage thing like anxiety and depression as we explore and understand complex emotions in a safe space and find healthy and effective ways to express and release those feelings. We can immerse ourselves in exploration of your past as we make connections and gain understanding of how old patterns show up for you today. Or we can focus on the here and now, identifying what behaviors and thoughts are no longer serving you so you can create new goals that support your growth, in whatever way feels right to you.

During the last 10 years as a therapist, clinical supervisor, and executive clinical director, I’ve worked with individuals who struggle to function in their everyday lives due to their mental health. For some, they make it look like they have it all together. For others, they are back and forth between hospitals or jails. You may find yourself in one of these circumstances or somewhere in between. Regardless, you deserve a life worth living.

Feeling connected is an integral part of relationships. Clients come to me when they feel disconnected, lost, overwhelmed, lonely, frustrated, angry, sad, and confused. You may want something but don't know how to get it, or worthy enough to receive it. Or maybe you aren't sure what you want, and need help gaining clarity. My role is to walk with my clients as they learn about themselves, and how their families, relationships, and experiences have impacted their understanding of who they are both internally and in relationship with others. I hope to empower clients to value themselves, and form the relationships they desire.

Making the decision to begin psychotherapy can be difficult. "Am I really crazy?", "My parents want me to go" or "The last time I went it was useless," are typical obstacles that prevent someone from scheduling the first session. Therapy is making the first step towards improved self awareness. I point out to clients that therapy becomes a weekly safe place, away from their busy schedules, to focus solely on yourself. When this happens people are often surprised at what they discover.

I work with adults who feel stressed, overwhelmed, and ready for change. We might be good fit if you want to understand why you feel miserable despite "doing it all" or you are trying to manage the present day stuff while making sense of past events. Alternatively you might be navigating big life changes or settled into a career or relationship wondering if it is the right fit and unsure if it is working. Maybe you are compassionate to everyone in your life, except YOU, and you want to feel more cared for in your own life. I also work with teens or adult children and their parents to help move through sticky family dynamics.

"It's a joy to be hidden but a disaster not to be found." - Winnicott. No matter how many times I hear this quote, I would like to hear it again. As a child, I remember playing the game hide-and-seek, having the delight of safety and the excitement of being hidden, followed quickly by a desire to be found and not left alone. We are the same kids, perhaps a little taller, hopefully, a little wiser. We still want our sanctuary, but we also have the desire to be free. I might be the right person to help you feel comfortable enough to be found.

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.
