Therapy can be intimidating, especially sex therapy! I am an individual therapist who enjoys working with individuals to strengthen and deepen their intimate relationships and improve their sexual health. I help people who want to better understand their relationship to sex, find safety in intimacy, connect to their body and reclaim their sexuality. Topics that might be explored in session are lack of desire, pressure to perform, challenges with orgasm, avoiding sex, communication about sex, body image as a barrier to sex and prioritizing pleasure. I have also worked with anxiety, depression, trauma and self esteem issues.

Are you ready to do the hard work of sitting with uncomfortable feelings and identifying patterns that aren't serving you any longer? Are you ready to dig into the past and explore how it might be wreaking havoc in the present? I enjoy working with clients who are ready to make changes and need a space to get real about what's going on in their lives and express how they are truly feeling. I help clients work through childhood trauma, sex and other relational issues, big life transitions, grief, anxiety, and depression. I will set goals with you early in our work together to identify what you want to get out of therapy.

You’re not just burning the candle at both ends; your candle is completely engulfed in flames! You’re overwhelmed, exhausted, and you can’t keep this up much longer.

You feel like you’re slowly drowning, but no one else sees it… I feel you! Whether you’re suffering from chronic fatigue, ADHD, Autistic burnout, the mental load of managing a household, or just the normal everyday stressors of late-stage capitalism, I can help.

I enjoy helping those struggling with symptoms of OCD, anxiety, and related disorders live a more meaningful life. I utilize Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) an evidence-based treatment for OCD to give you freedom from distressing intrusive thoughts and compulsions. If you find yourself engaging in repetitive rituals, ruminating on unwanted thoughts, or getting stuck fixating on sensations, I think I can help. I also enjoy providing neurodivergent-affirming care to neurodivergent people who have co-occurring OCD or anxiety.

Things come up in life and sometimes they've been there since...well, forever, it seems, or sometimes they're new and unexpected challenges. Either way, when we're faced with those things, we desire to feel a little more grounded, strong, and sure of ourselves. Whether it's the new things, the old things, or maybe something else, having another person to be there to help you explore helps. It's not easy, but it's definitely worth exploring your experiences and yourself to gain new self-awareness, new ways of navigating the world, and some healing. Together, we can help you find some space/strategies to have your needs met.

The struggle is real! Life can be challenging, overwhelming, and at times, just plain difficult. The good news is, it does not have to be and you don't have to go it alone. My approach is to offer compassionate support in a nonjudgmental and empowering environment in which you are the expert on your experiences. The goal of therapy, I hope, is to empower you to appropriately deal with life events, reduce stress, and experience personal growth. I also hope therapy will allow for increased feelings of self worth, satisfaction in relationships and will lead to a more fulfilling life.

I work with adults who are experiencing anxiety, low self confidence and struggles in life transitions. For each client the expectations of therapy will differ; whether it' to gain insight, problem-solve or have a trusted listener. For many it can feel like there is no way through so many of these issues and big emotions, and it can feel daunting. My goal is to help guide you through those moments and begin to find a way through. Many problems might not have answers that come easily, and through identifying your strengths and values we can work to identify what isn't working, and what might.

I view therapy as a deeply transformative experience where people may discover more of who they are and ultimately find a greater sense of peace. Our suffering is often a result of a complex set of circumstances involving our sense of self, our relationships with others, our thoughts, and our feelings. I believe each person deserves to be understood in all of his or her complexity. It is only within an open and accepting relationship with another that we can begin to experience ourselves and our relationships in a new and healing way.

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.
