I see you...The person who shows the world that you are “totally ok.” The person who “has it together” by life’s standards, but feels quite differently inside. My message to you is you matter. You are strong. Most importantly…You are enough. It’s not enough to look OK…you deserve to feel OK too! Bottom Line. It's time to hop in the driver's seat of your life and thrive. All it takes is a choice to begin.

As a psychologist, I help clients address barriers to wellness and realize their potential by promoting insight and healthy coping in an emotionally safe context. My goal is to elicit your feedback about your experience and to tailor treatment to your needs.

Are you looking for a holistic alternative to traditional counseling - one that goes beyond talk-therapy and helps you get to the root of the problem? Would you like to learn how to release stress, negative emotions and reactions, and the subconscious programs that are driving them, in a way that's easeful and practical? I specialize in a somatic (also called body-informed) approach to counseling and coaching.

Let’s be honest…life happens, and when it does we often say things like “everything happens for a reason”, but what if we change that phrase to, “we create meaning from everything that happens to us”? You have the amazing power within to create your own meaning as you step into the journey of healing and strengthening your self-care as you become a more authentic you!

When you were little, someone asked what you wanted to do when you grew up. You said something cute & brilliant like, “I’m going to be a kangaroo!” and bopped along your happy way. The years rolled on and that question kept coming - holding more weight as you got older. At some point, you got to know yourself, made some big choices, checked off your to-do list, changed locations, lost some friends, made some new friends & ended up where you are today! A million moments have taken place between then and now. How are you doing?

Navigating the rocky terrain of early adulthood can be both amazing and brutal all at the same time. One day you understand why people tell you "these are the best days of your life," and other days, you feel certain your life is moving forward without you. ​​​The average twenty-something experiences a tremendous amount of stress that is often misunderstood by others. As they say, the struggle is real! I work with college students and young professionals who find themselves consistently overwhelmed and thinking in circles.

Do you love someone that’s controlling, someone that exhibits narcissistic behaviors? It’s not easy being in a relationship that causes constant anxiety and depression, at times trauma and even PTSD. Quite simply, the sacrifices we’re willing to make can be substantial. And mostly, those sacrifices are worth it. But at times, the demands of our relationships can go too far. Our sense of purpose can be destroyed and the passion we once felt for things disappears. If that's you, take a deep breath; I know what you’re going through. I also know there’s a path for you to find your well-being and happiness again.

Tiger counseling is all about helping people find the courage to change. We are not about making you feel judged or more ashamed. In the process of analyzing your mind, we often encounter discomfort, which is a signal to keep going, never to give up on ourselves. Good therapeutic work is often messy in my experience, usually accompanied by tears and laughter (often in the same session, but no guarantees). I especially encourage you to reach out if you have tried therapy before and found it less than helpful. I assure you my approach is unique, my style has been described as unorthodox. I love that and I love the people I serve!

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.
