With over decade of experience, I firmly believe that counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and the client. I believe it’s vital for individuals to find a counselor who fits their needs and personality. You as the client need a counselor who understands you and what you need! So I want to tell you a little about myself to help you determine if I’m the right fit for you. I work with individuals of all ages, but especially enjoy working with adolescence through mid-adulthood aged individuals.

The couples I work with are struggling. At first glance they may seem fine – smiling and happy – but they cannot stop arguing. They know they love their person but they feel so stuck. It HURTS. They long to feel understood, to know that their person is “with them”, and they want to know they are not alone. They want to find a way to make their relationship work but they don’t know where to start.

Couples often enter my office feeling like their best efforts to share with their partner are met with anger, defensiveness or nothing at all. They so badly want to feel close and understood, but with each attempt to reach out they once again feel hurt and alone. Their partner often feels like despite their best efforts, they keep hearing what they got wrong leaving them feeling like they can’t ever seem to get it right. As these stuck places continue, of course it is easy to start to feel exhausted and hopeless as it seems you are all out of moves and maybe even tired of trying.

Immediately accepting new clients! Maybe your style of constant mental noise is to second guess every interaction you have. “Why did I say that?" or “I should have done...” Maybe your style is a habit you’re acting out and wish you could change. Call it anxiety, stress, depression, etc. Regulating our emotions and forming healthier connections is possible. Our conditioning gets in the way of us relating to each other and manifests in unhelpful behaviors, thoughts, and attitudes. Awareness can help us unhook from conditioning that leads us into unwanted patterns. I utilize mindfulness and somatic therapy to help achieve your goals.

I got into therapy so I could help people end the cycles detracting from their fullest potential in life. So many of us plug through the day with nasty negative thoughts about ourselves, leaving us drained of energy and an incapacity to be mindful and present with each other. Using EMDR, mindfulness, and a heavy dose of humanity and empathy, I help my clients obtain the changes they seek in order to be the best versions of themselves. My style is thoughtful, witty, intentional, and comfortable and I'm always happy to help those who are ready to help themselves grow!

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.
