I practice at Turning Point Counseling with 11 other clinicians/therapists. I primarily conduct psychological testing on children, ages 3-18 and adults of all ages. Most child and adolescent clients are referred to be evaluated for possible ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disabilities, or Bipolar Disorder or other Mood Disorders. With adults I do the same type of testing but also have evaluated over 2000 adults who are required to have psychological screening prior to weight loss surgery or pain patients who are required to have psychological testing prior to receiving a spinal cord stimulator or pain pump.

As humans, we will inevitably go through many life changes and events. Sometimes, those experiences can affect us in many different ways. You may experience moments of happiness, sadness, anger, or hopelessness. Some of these feelings, in turn, may impact how you view yourself as well as the world around you. Although you may be able to navigate through some of your emotions on your own, there may be times when you feel as if you need more assistance. It is okay to not be okay. It's also okay to seek help. I truly enjoy working with individuals and helping them cultivate peace within themselves and in their lives in general.

My main forms of therapy tend to be solution focused, cognitive behavioral therapy and person centered with a priority in making changes in behavior and thinking. However, all forms of therapy are used in my practice including but not limited to narrative, reality, mindfulness, play therapy, some art therapy, and sand tray therapy to explore all facets of the self. I will use whatever works best for you. I believe that therapy is a place to explore uncomfortable emotions, issues, and trauma, as well as explore who you are, who you have been and what you want for your future with a focus on your strengths, resilience, and balance.

Many of us struggle with life in one form or another, and often, we forget that we have positive qualities or strengths. While on the healing journey, people can discover more about themselves and the strength that has been hidden by using an increased sense of self-awareness, psychoeducation, event processing, and healing. I offer my empathy, listening skills, knowledge, and unconditional positive regard as we (you and I) build rapport to seek clarity regarding your journey and the path forward.

Each morning when I open my eyes, I say to myself: 'I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead; tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.'" ~Groucho Marx. I decided long ago that life is too short to feel miserable or to live in fear. I have since been in recovery for over 10 years! Today, I live my life differently, and, I can tell you, it's worth it. If you're ready to join me on this journey, give me a call.

If given the option between two paths in life, most of us would not select the one filled with hardship. Yet, it is part of the human experience that we endure seasons and even years filled with confusion and pain. At times we are able to work through these weighty seasons on our own and at other times we need someone to walk with us. I hope that in your search, you will be able to identify a skilled and well-matched therapist to walk alongside you.

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.
