If you've made it this far, you're ready for a change. You may not be certain what that change needs to be, but you know that things can't keep going the way they are. Maybe you're sick and tired of being depressed or anxious all the time. Maybe your relationships are in trouble and you need help fixing them. Maybe your teenager is in trouble and they need someone to talk to because you've run out of answers.

I find it most beneficial to take a holistic approach when practicing therapy. When approaching my clients, I choose to view each individual as a whole being, including mind, body, and spirit, as all of these moving parts are important in the presence of healing and improving. I gift my clients with a chance to become aware of their emotions, thoughts, physical occurrences, spiritual philosophies, and how all of these aspects can affect one another. Through awareness we gain control, the ability to change and to heal. I am here to support and guide my clients towards revival.

Do you find yourself gripped by anxiety and worry no matter what you do? Maybe you're fed up with cycling through worst case scenario thoughts in your mind, feeling overwhelmed and distracted or wishing you could just "turn your brain off". Maybe you're tired of asking yourself, "what if... (insert distressing but unlikely event here)?" You might not even remember a time things didn't feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you're ready for some relief. You're ready to quit worrying all the time. You're ready to feel present and connected with your loved-ones. Most of all, you're ready to feel calm again.

Has your world been shattered by a deep betrayal in your relationship? Are you unable to sleep or work without countless intrusions by disturbing images from that trauma? Are you feeling waves of heartbreak and paralysis as to what to do next? A deep betrayal often generates a PTSD-type response and requires effective help individually and, as a couple. Anger, sadness and grief can hurt so much it may seem impossible to cope. Friends and families may wish to help but this remains a life-changing decision about what to do next that only you can make.

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.
