I am a resident clinician who has worked in community mental health for more than 10 years in environments as varied as hospice care, juvenile group homes, sexual assault crisis support, and justice-involved individuals. I was raised in a working-class home in northern California and became involved in politics, environmental activism, and community organizing at a young age. These experiences complement my formal education in behavioral science and social work, focusing on clinical therapeutic applications with clients identifying with LGBTQ+, kink, ethical non-monogamy, and ‘geek’ culture.

Are you having difficulty making decisions, expressing your emotions, or struggling to improve your personal relationship(s)? Working toward change can be challenging. I view the therapeutic alliance as a collaborative and empowering process best accomplished when the client feels safe to explore and challenge current mal-adaptive cognitive and behavioral patterns. This is accomplished through a variety of therapeutic techniques grounded in Cognitive Behavioral, Reality, and Rogerian dispositions. Evenings preferred.

Feeling stuck? Life can be hard sometimes. I offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a psychotherapy that, unlike traditional talk-therapy, enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. As an EMDR trained therapist, I provide EMDR therapy to all ages to address stuck memories and help to reorganize past thoughts, feelings and memories that are related to a traumatic event that can oftentimes keep us hooked or stuck from moving forward in work & relationships, preventing us living our best lives. You are worth it and you ARE capable of healing!

I worked over ten years in college counseling centers, and still enjoy many of the issues that arose there - e.g. identity, achievement, relationships, dreams and goals. I've been in private practice for over ten years now as well, and work mainly with adults, although I'm often asked if I work with children because of the sand trays and toys in my office. Although I use a variety of approaches to counseling, I have some specialized training in couples counseling (Imago therapy) and trauma (EMDR).

It's been my experience that people usually seek therapy when they have tried everything they know to improve their life and it's just not working. Clients are often quite desperate when they enter therapy. I believe my job as a therapist is to give people new options for what to do to make things better. I try to help with kindness and humor, drawing on a wealth of knowledge, information, and experience to help my clients achieve their goals, whatever they may be. I am continually awed by the amazing ability of the human spirit to grow, heal, and develop.

Do you have symptoms that "make no sense," or "come out of the blue?" Are you having trouble understanding why you feel the way you do? I specialize in helping people make sense of experiences that are painful, confusing, or "illogical." I start with the assumption that all feelings are messages to you, from you, about you. Together, we will work to understand these messages, using them to guide the process of change.

My goal as a therapist is to help my clients learn and implement the skills necessary for long-term results. I use a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy called Rational Living Therapy and I am a Certified Rational Living Therapist. The foundational concept of RLT is that your emotions and behaviors are created by your thoughts, rather than your situations. This is a wonderful fact because you can learn to change your thoughts to improve how you feel, even if your situation does not change. By the conclusion of your time in therapy you will have gained the rational self-counseling skills to essentially be your own Therapist.

We all have times in our lives when we’re feeling stuck and our usual ways of dealing with problems aren’t working the way they once did. Maybe you are experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety for no apparent reason, or feelings that “just don’t make sense”. Perhaps you are questioning your relationships, life decisions, or even core aspects of who you are as a person. My approach to psychotherapy involves establishing a collaborative relationship, in which we will work together to understand your life experiences in the context of your life story, relationships, and cultural background.

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.
