Are you feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or anxious in your life or relationship? My understanding is that life involves all of who we are - the interplay between mind, emotions, body, and spirit. If something feels out of balance or lacking in your life, causing you anxiety, depression, anger, self-doubt, confusion, or a feeling of things being out of control, then my approach to counseling can help. I have found that increasing one's self awareness and self acceptance are the building blocks of any change process, and I will work with you to honor your process while identifying your preferred direction for positive change.

Many of my clients are examining their gender identity and sexuality. Several are overwhelmed with their thoughts and feelings and have feelings of isolation. Therapy allows them space to explore these thoughts and feelings to gain confidence and acceptance of their true selves.

My clients are usually a perfectionist bunch who struggle to cope with stress. The fear of abandonment and/or rejection is very present for them. It’s often presented by reactiveness or shutting down. Through our work together, my aim is to help them develop their voice and confidence to speak their core truths. While this often starts by examining the frustration they feel in intimate relationships, once they learn how to speak their truth and create healthy boundaries, this pattern also manifests in their employment, with their friends, and in all facets of their life. The ripple effects are abundant and freeing.

My theoretical orientation is varied depending on your needs. I help you to formulate your therapy goals in a collaborative fashion. Although therapy can be distressing at times, I often use humor to decrease distress and increase coping skills. In addition, I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) techniques to build resources for positive coping skills. EMDR can help you face uncomfortable emotions, such as anxiety or depression, and reprocess traumatic memories.

It can be very frustrating to be misunderstood by your spouse or your partner. You probably have a hard time communicating with each other. You probably find yourselves fighting about seemingly minor issues. You might be hurting and even feel a great deal of anger and resentment. You tried hard to fix the situation yourself or even hoped it would go away but you always seem to end up fighting again. You may even feel defeated because of the frequent arguing and worried about the future of your relationship. You know its time to get some help.

Open and taking new clients! (telehealth) The "ideal client" I imagine working with is an individual that is characterized by having difficulty coping with anxiety, self-esteem, ADHD, relationships, and offer Christian based counseling. The needs of the client I imagine would be empathy and compassion towards that individual, space for their voice to heard and their story to be respected. I imagine my ideal client would desire "practical" but, "impactful" coping techniques to alleviate symptoms. I imagine my "ideal" client aspiring to regain "control" back into their lives and to feel "empowered."

Hi there. First, I'd like to wish you well -- especially as you work with a psychotherapist. In the 10+ years that I've been practicing, I've learned that each person and each relationship is unique, so I've developed a variety of ways to approach psychotherapy and relationship therapy that help individuals to heal and help couples to relate. By working with thoughts and feelings, with mind and with heart, people can move through what is in the way, blocking them from feeling better and being better. I'm absolutely honored to help with that movement.

Making the decision to enter therapy can be a difficult decision, especially when trying to find a therapist who is the right fit. I don’t believe anyone should feel ambivalent about their therapist. The priority is finding someone who provides a safe space for sharing your story without judgment. Questions that might run through your mind: "Do I need therapy?" "Will talking to someone help me?" "I (we) went before and it didn’t really help. How will this time be different?" I recognize that not everyone "needs" therapy, but I think everyone can benefit from the support of an objective and compassionate person to empower growth.

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.
